Athletics

The Student Athletics Program is an integral part of the total school educational program. Charles County Public Schools embraces the importance of providing a well-balanced athletics program to augment the learning activities of the classroom. Student athletics programs teach and reinforce, through empirical learning, lessons consistent with the CCPS student achievement goals of academics, essential life skills, and responsibility to the community.

Life lessons such as teamwork, goal setting, time management, sportsmanship, commitment, and leadership are taught through daily experiences and prepare students for future life challenges.

Athletic Forms

Charles County Public Schools require the following forms to be printed, read, and completed in order to be eligible to participate in interscholastic athletics.  All forms must be submitted to the school athletic director for final clearance prior to student tryouts or practice.

Should you not have medical coverage, please use the enrollment information below.

Charles County Public Schools has adopted heat acclimatization guidelines for all student athletes, beginning fall 2012. A copy of guidelines developed by the Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE), and adopted by CCPS, is linked below.

Universal Immediate Care of Athletic Injuries

The following procedure (R.I.C.E.) will be used in response to injuries incurred during an athletic practice or game.

Rest:  Do not use the injured body part until pain free activity can be resumed.

Ice: Apply ice directly to the injured area 20 minutes on, 20 minutes off, for the first three hours. After 72 hours, 20 minutes on, 40 minutes off, one time. Do not use chemical packs directly on facial injuries. Do not apply heat if swelling, inflammation or pain persists.

Compression: Wrap from below the injured area and toward the body and use a pad under the wrap to add compression forces to retard swelling and activate absorption. When sleeping, loosen the wrap, but do not remove it.

Elevation:  Elevate to a level above the heart to reduce bleeding and swelling. Every injury that requires the use of this procedure should be evaluated by the athletic trainer, the athlete’s family physician or by an orthopedic surgeon as soon as possible. Athletes referred to a doctor by the athletic trainer or coach must present a doctor’s note giving permission to return to play or practice.
