Sports for the 2020 - 21 School Year
Wicomico County Public Schools is excited to finally be starting the Fall Athletic season, which kicks off with competitions this Friday, March 5th. As part of our continued efforts in keeping everyone safe during these times, Wicomico Schools and other Bayside Conference members have put in place certain guidelines and restrictions pertaining to attending athletic contests. Please take a moment to review these important restrictions.
The biggest changes from normal school years will be in the stands. Each athlete is permitted to have up to 4 family members in attendance at home games, with no charge to enter. Those family members will be on a list and must provide photo ID at the gate or door to enter. Everyone attending must answer COVID-19 screening questions, then adhere to health and safety guidelines once inside by wearing a face mask or other facial covering and maintaining 6 feet of distance from anyone not from the same household.
No one else will be admitted to games, including WCPS staff, as we are limited in the number of spectators allowed. (The only exceptions will be for those few pre-approved staff members with responsibilities for game day operations). WCPS badges will not provide entry to games. Please note that only home teams are allowed to have fans in attendance; even-preapproved family members who are Wicomico fans will not be permitted entry when theirs is the visiting team. (For example, Bennett hosting Parkside. Parkside High fans would not be allowed to attend.)
We wish we could open games to all of those wishing to attend in support of our student athletes. However, to be able to run our athletic programs, while keeping everyone safe, we must adhere to these restrictions on fans in the stands. We encourage everyone to continue to follow and support our student athletes.
Wicomico Schools will have information to share very soon on the availability of sporting events online, either livestreamed on Facebook or posted later to a YouTube channel.
Again, as part of our continued efforts in keeping everyone safe during these times, Wicomico Schools and other Bayside Conference members have put in place these guidelines and restrictions pertaining to attending athletic contests. As always, thank you for your continued support of our students and schools!
Wicomico County Public Schools is proud of the organized program of athletics offered for student-athletes in our middle and high schools. Our goal is to develop young men and women to be successful citizens in a highly competitive world, and organized sports is a wonderful opportunity to achieve that goal.
We encourage and demand sportsmanship in all of the sports that we offer during the school year.
