Information about High School Athletics

The Albemarle County Public Schools (ACPS) Athletic Departments, in accordance with Virginia High School League (VHSL) guidelines and approved by ACPS, are excited to share with you that starting Monday, July 13, Fall Sports activities will have the option to conduct limited, optional, organized work out sessions.  Participation by students and coaches is strictly optional.  Anyone interested in participating in these optional sessions must have a completed VHSL Physical Form dated after May 1, 2020 on file in the Athletic Office.  The form is attached, and copies are available in the school office.

Students entering 8th-12th grades interested in information regarding a particular sport are encouraged to contact the respective Head Coach.  Fall Sports coach contact information is below. Updated athletics information, the VHSL Physical Form, and contact information for the Head Coach of each sport/activity will be available online at www.GoMonticello.org.

In an effort to protect student-athletes and coaches from the spread of COVID-19 and to create a healthy environment for all, the ACPS Athletic Departments along with the ACPS Health Advisory Committee have developed safety protocols that require diligent on-site and at-home effort.  The attached document is provided for your review.  Also, parents are encouraged to remain in their vehicles when dropping students off/picking students up from workouts.
For workout schedules, contact the respective sport coach or click the ‘CALENDAR’ tab at www.GoMonticello.org.  With Fall Sports workouts only, initially, Winter/Spring athletes are welcome to try a new activity and participate as workouts will be general in nature in compliance with VHSL guidelines.  We appreciate your patience and with continued improvements in the prevention of the spread of COVID-19 illnesses.  We look forward to providing this opportunity for those who feel comfortable.  If you/your student are not comfortable participating in in-person workouts at this time, but would like to stay informed with team information, please contact the respective sport coach.


On a broader note, online registration for all VHSL athletics and activities for the 2020-21 school year is available online at www.GoMonticello.org, click ‘REGISTRATION’.  Schedules are posted, but subject to change.  Activity fees will not be collected until the VHSL calendar for the upcoming school year is approved.
