MCPS Fall Sports Athletes and Coaches Back in Action

MCPS says “play ball”.

As part of the Return to R.A.I.S.E strategic plan, MCPS sports resume on Saturday. As schools plan to reopen, MCPS has allowed school sports to prepare for their fall semester seasons.

The Return to R.A.I.S.E plan is a reimagined framework that outlines the safe return of MCPS athletics due to COVID-19. The plan closely aligns with CDC guidelines and regulations, in order to promote the safety of all athletes.

Saturday marks the first day in the plan’s timeline to recondition athletes back into their sports. As of Saturday, athletes are permitted to start conditioning and preparing for the season. Coaches are able to acclimate their athletes back into training, as well as inform them of logistics moving forward.

Starting Mar. 1, athletes will participate in skills-based training individually, then the following week will participate in small groups training. By mid-March, the plan expects to have full squad scrimmages.

Competitions and games are set to begin Mar. 19. A full list of competition schedules will be released next week and posted on
