Welcome to Potomac Middle School Panthers Athletics 
What must I do to be eligible to try-out for a school sport?

·     Complete a VHSL physical form that must be filled out by a parent guardian, doctor and student-athlete. Physicals are eligible to turn in after May 1st of the current year. 

·     Proper birthdate – May not be 15 years old before September 1st of current year.

·     Must have insurance – School system does not provide insurance for injuries during sports. Prince William County Public Schools offer student optional insurance through the risk management and security web pages. 

·     Must complete Face to Face concussion training before participating in a school sport. All 6th graders and new students that have not completed a Face to Face concussion training must complete one before trying out. Every Middle School offers multiple dates for the Face to Face Training. Students that have completed the face to face training in there middle school career only have to complete the online concussion training through the PWCS website. It is mandatory that both parent/guardian and student-athlete participate in concussion training.
