Welcome to Athletics for 2021-22!

  •  Welcome to McDaniel Athletics for 2021!

    At this time, our plans are for full regular seasons of practices and games, while following all health protocols outlined by state, county, and district guidelines. Currently, masks are not required for active athletes in outdoor athletic participation, but are still required for sideline athletes and indoor sports.

    Our fall season teams are underway! Athletes interested in winter or spring sports may pre-register now to receive updates as our seasons approach, including notices for off-season conditioning with our coaches. The first practice date for Winter season is November 15. Spring season teams will begin practicing on February 28.

    All students are required to have a current sports physical and pre-register on Family ID before the tryout date, or they will not be admitted to tryouts:  link to FamilyID to register.

    There is no need to pay athletics participation fees prior to tryouts. Please wait until team rosters are finalized before making payments. For the 2021-22 school year, McDaniel qualifies for the Community Eligibility Provision designation with PPS. This enables ALL students to benefit from adjusted fees for athletics. The sports fee is $35 per PIL sport. The cap is $70 per school year per athlete and $150 per family per school year. This is the same as the reduced fee for Free or Reduced Lunch. You can pay the PIL sports fee through School Pay or pay in person with the McDaniel High School bookkeeper or in the athletics office once we have opened.

    Free sports physicals can be scheduled through the School Based Health Centers. You must have the PIL's Sports Physical form signed by your doctor. Links to the form and information on contacting the Health Centers is available on the Links and Forms page. (At this time, the McDaniel School Based Health Center has not yet reopened).

    If you have questions, contact our coaching or Athletics Department staff through our Athletics Staff links.

    Thank you,

    McDaniel Athletics


TRYOUT SCHEDULE: Winter Season begins November 15

  • If you wish to try out for a winter team, you must first register on Family ID with a current physical. You will then receive a confirmation email with times and locations for tryouts.

    Please remember that basketball is a cut sport, and not everyone is guaranteed a position on a team. 

    Details about Swim Team will be posted when finalized.
