All interested athletes are expected to be present from day one and have all required documentation fully completed if they wish to compete for a place on the team. A player assessment rubric is applied from day one so being absent may seriously jeopardize an individual's chance of making the team. It is recommended that physicals be done in July as they are good for one calendar year. In order to ensure the safety and security of players and coaches; eliminate unnecessary distractions; and protect the integrity of the tryout process, no third party observers are permitted at athletic practices or tryouts.Southern Maryland Athletic Conference (this will take you to a site outside the SMCPS site)
Please note: Participation on outside teams is permitted provided it does not interfere with the high school program. Student-athletes are encouraged to choose between an outside team and a school team if they are unable to meet the commitments required by either team. It is unfair to their teammates and to others who may not have made the team if they are not fully committed to the team.
St. Mary’s County Public Schools support the philosophy that a quality interscholastic athletics program is vital to the positive social, physical, and educational development of students. The interscholastic athletics program enhances and supports the academic mission of the school system. We are committed to promoting the proper ideals of sportsmanship, ethical conduct, and fair play at all athletic contests. We support high standards of good citizenship and propriety, along with regard for the rights of others. Being a member of the interscholastic athletics program is a privilege to be earned and maintained throughout the season. Participants are expected to represent themselves, their families, their teams, and their schools in a responsible, sportsmanlike manner each time they enter a school, step onto the practice field, and/or participate in a game.
