FALL SPORTS UPDATE
- Boys Soccer team begins practice Monday, August 21, 6-7:30 pm. Practice will also be held Wednesday, August 23, (6-7:30). The season begins Monday, August 28th (3:30-5). Regular season practice will typically be held on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays.
- Defending NVIAC Girls Volleyball Champions, begin Pre-season practice August 21, 5 pm - 6:30 pm at CCS gym. Pre-season practice also includes Wednesday, August 23rd (5-6:30). The season begins Monday, August 28th after school (3:30-5:00), most school days except Game days. PLEASE NOTE! PRE-SEASON PRACTICE ORIGINALLY SCHEDULED FOR TUESDAY, AUGUST 22, has been CANCELLED!
- Coed Cross Country will begin the season with meeting at Road RunnerSports Store (46220 Potomac Run Plaza, Sterling, Va) Friday, August 25th (6 pm - 8 pm). We enjoyed a great beginning there last year with runners and family members having their stride analyzed by video, to determine best fitting shoes for individuals. Pizza and Soda provided as well. No pressures to buy! It is a fund raiser for CCS Cross Country, however, as we receive money per number of runners, family members, and friends who show up for this team bonding experience. Cross Country will typically practice distant runs on Tuesdays (beginning Aug 29) and Fridays with our Head Coach, Steff Sanders.
Coach Kincaid will practice the Cross-Country team, running intervals at the Stadium on Wednesdays, unless a scheduling conflict occurs. If so, an announcement will be made well in advance! Of course, Soccer players would be excused from Wednesday CC practices. RUNNERS ARE ENCOURAGED TO ACCLIMATE TO RUNNING CONDITIONS the next 2 weeks to prepare for the upcoming season!
PLEASE NOTE: If your child-athlete has had a Physical Examination within past year, we have a simple one-page addendum available first day of practice with our Coaches, that will need to be signed by PARENT, in lieu of a new Physical Examination.
REGARDING SPORT PAYMENT...If non-CCS student, simply write the check for the sport to CCS, UNLESS you choose to use FACTS (in which case you must set up a FACTS account). NOTE: Facts Account SET UP instructions are attached! Those who use FACTS (CCS students included); your FACTS account will not be charged for the sport until Team Rosters are created---approximately 2 weeks after practice begins!
If you can't come to Pre-Season practices, we understand! Please join us ASAP for Regular season practices. All 5th - 8th grade Home School students and Private School students who attend a school that does not offer a Sport that CCS offers, are eligible to compete for CCS Middle School. Please note that we are running CC and Boys Soccer practices on different days of the week this season, as many of our Soccer players indicated the past season their desire to also run CC.
