Family ID Registration for Spring Out of Season Practices and Winter MPSSAA Competitive Season

Citing the rising COVID-19 case incidence rate across the county and a recent spate of positive tests among participants in high school athletics programs, Superintendent George Arlotto announced today that all in-person athletics and extracurricular activities will be temporarily halted, effective immediately. The rate, which measures the average number of new cases per 100,000 county residents over a seven-day period, had risen to 21.3 as of yesterday.

The announcement brings an end to in-person offseason fall athletics practices. Offseason spring sports practices, which are scheduled to begin on Nov. 16, 2020, will start virtually.  Registration for the spring sessions will continue as planned, and the status of practices will be updated on the AACPS Athletics website at least weekly throughout the three-week window from Nov. 16, 2020, through Dec. 5, 2020.

 Crofton High School registration for Spring Out of Season Practices is currently open.

  • Athletes who are interested in participating in the Spring Out of Season Practices must register on Family ID by November 12 at 11 pm.
  • Athletes who participated in the Fall Out of Season Practices must register again for the spring practices.
  • Athletes may only participate in one sport per season per MPSSAA and AACPS Athletics rules and regulations.

Spring Sports – Out of Season Practices November 16th through December 5th

Teams will meet 1 – 2 times a week virtually with the hope of meeting in person for practices if Covid numbers decrease.  Athletes must be registered to participate in virtual and in person practices.  This was originally a 4-week session but has been changed to 3 weeks with the announcement that the MPSSAA will be starting the Competitive Winter Season on December 7.

Winter Sports – MPSSAA Competitive Season – December 7th

Registration is open for the MPSSAA Competitive Winter Season that is scheduled to start on December 7.  With the recent spike in Covid numbers we are still waiting on clarification from AACPS on how we will move forward with the winter season.  Please feel free to register so your child is prepared when a final decision is made.
