Middle School Athletics

Information for the fall 2023 and spring 2024 season

FCPS will be offering athletics for middle school students—for the first time—in September 2023. FCPS will offer middle school cross country in fall 2023 and outdoor track in spring 2024.

Why Middle School Sports?

Spring and fall athletic activities are being offered to support student well-being at no cost to students. The American Academy of Pediatrics reports that physical activity benefits children in many ways including increasing focus in school, improving sleep, reducing stress, and helping teens avoid risky behaviors such as smoking, drinking alcohol, and using drugs.

Who Can Participate?

Any current FCPS middle school student, enrolled in at least five courses, who is in good standing at their school, and is eligible to participate in the middle school after school program.

What Is Required to Participate?

Students and parents will need to complete several steps prior to participating in middle school sports, including:

  • Student-athletes in FCPS are required to be covered by medical insurance.  If your student is not covered by another plan, there is a link below to an option.
  • Each student-athlete and a parent/guardian will complete a registration process that includes the state-mandated concussion education program and Emergency Care Card information before the student participates in middle school sports.  

 All forms must be submitted to the Middle School After-School Program Specialist.
