The Extracurricular Activities (ECA) program is an integral part of the total education experience for middle school students. After school clubs, activities, athletics, and academic support provide students with opportunities to explore new areas of interest, cultivate and enhance existing skills, and grow both socially and academically in a safe and supportive environment.

HHMS Athletics Program

Registration for the upcoming middle school athletics spring season (boys’ and girls’ soccer) will be submitted through the ParentVue Portal, opening on February 7, 2022. Students should complete their pre-participation physical (MCPS Form SR-8) so that the medical eligibility form (last page of SR-8) is ready for online submission via the ParentVue Portal, prior to tryouts/practices. This form is valid for two years from the date of the exam and covers participation for all sports within that time period. This form must be completed and/or on file before a student-athlete can participate. All physicals must include the COVID-19 supplemental information, attached to the pre-participation physical (MCPS Form SR-8)) In addition, students must complete their second shot or submit an approved exemption no later than February 22, 2022, before a student-athlete can participate. Proof of vaccination must be ready for online submission via the ParentVue Portal, prior to tryouts/practices. Spring sports tryouts/practices begin March 8, 2022.


The Pre-Participation Physical for Athletics is a form that needs to be completed by a doctor in order to participate in tryouts and is completely different from immunization records that are given to the school health room. This form is good for two years. Each student needs to have a copy of this for tryouts. If the student was ON A ROSTER the previous year, their physical date should be in the system and you do not need another one (unless it is expired). If the student tried out for a team the previous year but did NOT make the team, the student needs to have a copy of the physical form in order to participate in tryouts. This form is also linked in the online registration form and should be uploaded there. If you are not able to upload it, IT MUST BE BROUGHT TO TRYOUTS. 


 Middle school interscholastic sports is more competitive than participatory. This means that there are tryouts based on skill in order to be selected for that team. The tryouts start on the date listed below. It is not a meeting. Students need to be prepared to physically participate on that date. Tryouts can last up to 3 days. Possibly more if needed. Every player must be at every tryout.

Equipment needed for tryouts: 

Softball: glove and cleats

Basketball: athletic shoes/shorts/t-shirt

Soccer: cleats, own ball is optional
