Pre-Participation Physicals

Students should complete their pre-participation physical (MCPS Form SR-8) so that the medical eligibility form (last two pages of SR-8) is ready for online submission or for submission to the athletic specialist, Regina Grubb, prior to tryouts/practices for approval. Physicals are valid for one calendar year. Physicals can be uploaded by the parent during the registration process. However, if a parent needs to submit a physical after the student has already been registered, email an electronic copy of the completed pre-participation physical (MCPS Form SR-8) to Poolesville HS Athletic Specialist Regina Grubb at Regina_R_Grubb@mcpsmd.org.

Vaccination Requirement

All high school students will be required to submit proof of full COVID-19 vaccination or the MCPS Medical Exemption Form prior to participation. This requirement applies to the spring sports season, as well as all out-of-season conditioning activities conducted through MCPS Athletics. This requirement is supported by the COVID-19 Task Force for MCPS Athletics, which includes representation from the Montgomery County Department of Health and Human Services and the Office of Emergency Management and Homeland Security, along with multiple MCPS departments. This requirement also aligns with recommendations from the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Medical Society for Sports Medicine.

Tryout Schedules by Sport

Students MUST be registered through ParentVUE Portal and approved by February 25th in order to begin participation. Students also must have an updated physical, covid supplement, and proof of covid vaccination.
