Bulldogs News · PGCPS ATHLETIC REOPENING UPDATE


On December 1, 2020, we received an update on the reopening plans for the school system. Due to the rising cases of COVID-19, a decision was made that schools will continue distance learning until further notice.

Subsequently, winter sports that were scheduled to begin on January 4 will not take place for the 2020-2021 school year. The safety and health of our student-athletes and coaches are very important to us, and we understand the disappointment that this situation may bring to all involved.

Below are the tentative start dates of fall and spring seasons that we have included in our reopening plan. The Office of Interscholastic Athletics will continue to offer virtual seasons until further notice.

Tentative Dates for Fall and Spring Seasons:

(Fall) First Practice Date: 2/15/2021; First Play Date: 3/9/2021; Last Play Date: 4/2/2021

(Spring) First Practice Date: 4/12/2021; First Play Date: 5/5/2021; Last Play Date: 6/19/2021
