Fall season tryouts begin August 8 2018, Winter season November 15, and Spring Season March 1. All seasons have challenges with summer vacation, winter break, and spring break.
Only those student-athletes who have registered prior to the first day of tryouts on the MCPS parent portal will be eligible for tryouts. Fall 2018 registration will begin on July 16, 2018.
Offering tryouts outside the scheduled dates is not a fair method to be used for team selection as we would have to offer this to all athletes in all sports and this would just not be possible. The tryout policy is the same for all sports- you must be present for tryouts and available for practices, scrimmages, and games immediately after going forward for the entirety of the season.
The athletic department and coaching staff reserved the right to examine student-athlete participation on a case by case basis for circumstances beyond the athletes control (family move, death in the family, etc…)
