Need to know future start dates? If in any doubt, please check with your high school A.D. Projected State Tournament Dates - 2019-2027
Before scheduling such events family as vacations or SAT examinations please check with your high school so as to avoid conflicts with athletic events. For example, Fall tryouts start in early August, and the SMAC Tennis Tournament may start on a Saturday in May when SATs are offered so do not register for that date in order to avoid missing out on the tennis tournament.
Important Try Out Information
Sports schedules may be found here: Southern Maryland Athletic Conference
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 education-based athletics program is vital to the positive social, physical, and educational development of students. The education-based 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.
