About PHS Athletics

A Message from Ed Ross, Athletic Director…

photo of Athletic Director Ed RossWe have a strong sense of school pride and spirit here at Poolesville High School and there is great support for our extracurricular activities.  Our athletic team programs are open to all enrolled students, who have maintained at least a 2.0 marking period average and are in good health and we encourage participation as athletes, managers and statisticians.

We expect our student-athletes to carry themselves with confidence while conducting themselves first, as ladies and gentlemen; second, as scholars; and third, as competitive athletes. As ladies and gentlemen, our athletes are expected to conduct themselves with dignity and respect. As students, our athletes are expected to maintain high academic and attendance standards; and as athletes, our students are expected to give maximum effort in their preparation for success at varsity level competition.

Our athletic program is divided into three sport seasons: Fall (August-November), Winter (November-March), and Spring (March-June). Practices are held daily after school and on Saturdays, depending on the sport; and games are played after school, at night, or on Saturdays. Tryouts are held prior to each sport season and students must have a valid physical exam form signed by a doctor and dated within one year of participation, and parent permission.
