ANNOUNCEMENTS

Athletics update

This is the official message from PWCS about middle school athletics...

In an effort to ensure the safety of our students and staff, Prince William County Public Schools has postponed middle school interscholastic athletics until December 14, 2020. This aligns with the beginning of the Virginia High School League athletics and will allow us to monitor CDC data as it relates to the Covid-10 pandemic. We are currently working on structuring a condensed athletic schedule and will examine all options to hopefully include all athletic programs we have previously offered. This will create challenges and require flexibility.

We are exploring creative solutions to combat the many challenges. The availability of field space, transportation limitations, and scheduling conflicts with officials are a few examples of the challenges we will face. We are confident that as a team of stakeholders, we can all be flexible in our efforts to accomplish the goal of providing our middle schools students the opportunity to safely compete in interscholastic athletics.

Please plan on your student’s participation by making sure they have a current physical dated May 1, 2020, or after, complete the online concussion training, and regularly monitor your school’s websites for updates. We hope to see everyone on the courts, fields, and playing surfaces on December 14, 2020.

Concussion Training

Concussion training is an annual requirement to participate in athletics in PWCS. 

Online Training - (Should be open to ALL after July 1)

This training is usually for students and their parents/guardians who have previously participated in a Prince William County middle school face-to-face concussion training. Due to COVID-19, the online training is supposed to be open to all students. This web-based training is now available online. (Please check after July 1).

Please complete the training and print the certificate that is emailed to you. The certificate must be turned into Mr. Bukva. This website has a history to being busy as it gets closer to tryouts dates. Do not delay getting this training completed. You must watch all of the videos and answer the questions. Fast-forwarding through the videos will cause the system to delay and might lock you out of the website.

Face-to-face Training

This training is typically required for rising 6th grade students and students new to PWCS.  All students should be able to use the online training above.  As PWCS is aware that not all students have the ability to attend online, in-person trainings will be offered. The following sessions have been scheduled for Reagan Middle School students, but are subject to change:

January 13, 2021 at 6:00pm
March 17, 2021 at 6:00pm

All face-to-face concussion training sessions will be held in the main gym. The student athlete must attend the training with a parent/guardian. Please do not be late. The doors will be closed once the session begins.
