Baltimore County Public Schools has announced its re-engagement plan for high school athletics. Please understand the information can change at any moment due to the ever-changing environment that we are currently in. According to the plan, student-athletes will have the opportunity to return to their school campuses to participate in voluntary conditioning and skill development sessions. The conditioning/skill-based development sessions will be open to all interested high school students. In order to participate in conditioning/skill development, students must contact the head coach first to let them know they want to participate, register online with FormReleaf, complete the pre-participation physical (email to Mr. Nash-PDF-file),  and sign parent/student participation acknowledgement statements (NEW Form).

-New Covid Form:  


  • The Covid form must be signed and returned to their head coach on the first day of in person conditioning. Students unable to participate in conditioning, must return the paper to their head coach on the first day of tryouts.

-FormReleaf Registration Link: https://app.formreleaf.com/organizations/towson-high-school

-Physical Form: https://www.mpssaa.org/assets/1/6/Physical_Evaluation_Form.pdf

Participation will require that students adhere to several requirements such as wearing face coverings, practicing social distancing, bringing their own water bottles and hand sanitizer to each practice, and demonstrating good hygiene and behavior. Students who fail to observe these requirements may be removed from the program and not permitted to return. The plan offers specific details and information about accommodations for students with special needs, inclement weather, workout times, sanitization of equipment, and other procedures to protect students and staff from COVID-19. In addition to the in-person voluntary conditioning and skill development sessions, BCPS will continue to offer virtual coaching and conditioning to high school student-athletes through the first semester, which ends Jan. 29, 2021.

Schedule for small group conditioning and skill development sessions:
