***All Middle School Sports are postponed until December 14, 2020***
This year, 2020/2021, Online Concussion Training is open for 6, 7, & 8th grade students. Face to face Concussion Training Sessions are to be determined, TBD.
  
In an effort to ensure the safety of our students and staff, Prince William County Public Schools has postponed middle school interscholastic athletics until December 14, 2020. This aligns with the beginning of the Virginia High School League athletics and will allow us to monitor CDC data as it relates to the Covid-10 pandemic. We are currently working on structuring a condensed athletic schedule and will examine all options to hopefully include all athletic programs we have previously offered. This will create challenges and require flexibility. We are exploring creative solutions to combat the many challenges. The availability of field space, transportation limitations, and scheduling conflicts with officials are a few examples of the challenges we will face. We are confident that as a team of stakeholders, we can all be flexible in our efforts to accomplish the goal of providing our middle schools students the opportunity to safely compete in interscholastic athletics. Please plan on your student’s participation by making sure they have a current physical dated May 1, 2020, or after, complete the online concussion training, and regularly monitor your school’s websites for updates. We hope to see everyone on the courts, fields, and playing surfaces on December 14, 2020.
