ACPS Athletics Update
ATHLETICS UPDATE: At the January 12, 2021, school board meeting, board members heard an update on athletics from Mrs. Tracey Leonard, Assistant Supervisor of Health, PE, Athletics, and Mental Health. After some discussion, school board members voted 4-1 to forego playing winter sports and proceed with fall sports, pending appropriate county health metrics, with the first available practice date being February 13, 2021. This decision was made as a result of the limited number of play dates available for winter sports after mandatory practices concluded as well as current county health metrics.
ACPS Winter Sports Update: The MPSSAA winter sports season for Allegany County Public Schools athletics will begin Monday, December 7, 2020, with student-athletes taking part in virtual workouts and virtual practices. When local health metrics allow, we will begin in-person workouts, try-outs and practices.
IMPORTANT UPDATE: As a result of increased health metrics related to COVID-19 in Allegany County, ACPS is cancelling all in-person extra-curricular activities and athletics events and practices effective today, Thursday, November 5, 2020, beginning with afternoon activities.
This decision was made in collaboration with the Allegany County Health Department and school system staff after reviewing recent health data. Coaches and advisors will be in contact with students if they opt to conduct their activities in a virtual format.
Community health metrics will continue to be monitored to determine when ACPS can resume in-person extra curricular activities and athletic practices and events.
