Registration for the first semester Sports Teams (all sports: fall, winter, and spring) Virtual Engagement is now open through HCPSS Connect. Parents/guardians may register their student-athlete.

The Maryland Public Secondary Schools Athletic Association (MPSSAA) on September 11, 2020, finalized its plan for a two-semester return to athletics. With this plan, athletic practices and competitions will not resume until the second semester.

Per MPSSAA, winter sports will begin on February 1, 2021, fall sports on March 15, 2021, and spring sports on April 26, 2021. Here is the full HCPSS plan for first-semester virtual engagement with student-athletes. Information about athletics is provided online and will be updated as new information becomes available.

Athletic Rules of Conduct

At all Howard County athletic events, we strive to provide a pleasant and safe environment for all spectators and participants. We ask fans to refrain from:

  • Intimidating or harassing the players, coaches, officials, or fans
  • Using profanity
  • Throwing objects
  • Entering the playing area
  • Loitering in the hallways or on the grounds
  • Those who fail to abide by the Rules of Conduct will be asked to leave the contest, and could result in a trespass letter banning the spectator from future athletic events at the school.

Admission is a privilege to observe a contest, not a license to display insensitive or offensive behavior. Enjoy the event! Be a fan, not a fanatic!
