Announced by the Howard County Public School System (HCPSS) on January 5th:

Fall Athletics to Begin February 13

The start of the 2020-2021 fall athletics season will begin on February 13, 2021 as previously scheduled, with tryouts and conditioning building up to the first scheduled contests on March 5. All students, regardless of their decision for in-person or virtual instruction, may participate in in-person athletics. Schools and coaches will be providing additional information to families and students to prepare for the start of the fall athletics season.

Opportunities for additional in-person extracurricular activities beyond athletics will gradually begin to be offered and families can expect to hear more from the school as those activities progress.


Additional information on athletics may be found on the HCPSS Help Site, which will be updated as more information becomes available.


I am looking forward to attending some athletic events and getting some photos this year.

Fall sports in Howard County include:

  • football
  • soccer
  • cross country
  • cheerleading
  • golf
  • field hockey
  • volleyball.
