Paperwork. Reminder that both for try-outs and when we begin fall workouts, all players must have submitted completed VHSL physicals and FCPS Concussion Ed certificates. Links for both can be found at www.warhawksports.org and completed forms should be emailed to .
Try-Outs. Basketball try-outs are still scheduled to begin on Monday, Dec. 7. As we get closer to actaully having a season (fingers crossed), we will have a try-out meeting in mid-November with additional details. Everyone is guaranteed three days of try-outs during that week. Expect teams to have rosters of 12 players.
Season. The basketball schedule has been released on the JMHS Twitter account. To see a complete list please check there. Here are the primary points for family planning. We will play four games over winter break - Mon., Dec. 21, Wed., Dec. 23, and again on Mon., Dec. 28 and Wed., Dec 30. No team will practice on the 24th, but each team will likely practice on Sat. the 26th, as I do not expect the VHSL will allow practices on Sunday teh 27th. We will then play two or three games each week of January to complete our 14-game regular season schedule. The schedule and playoffs in February are still being determined. Game and practice procedures to maximize safety are also still be discussed and finalized.
-- Fall Conditioning. There is no change at the moment as all workouts are still limited to outdoor conditioning. I am cautiously hopeful that we will be allowed to begin running indoor conditioning and skill workouts in early to mid-November. Even when that is approved, it will certainly also come with a range of restrictions. I will post additional information as I receive it.
If you have any additional questions, please email me at . Thank you and stay healthy.

Update October 3, 2020:
I hope that everyone has had an enjoyable weekend. Please find below the current information on our seaon and preseason. Please also understand that everything is subject to change.
Try-Outs. Under the current Virginia High School League (VHSL) plan, basketball try-outs will begin on Monday, Dec. 7. As we get closer to actaully having a season (fingers crossed), we will have a try-out meeting in mid-November with additional details. Everyone is guaranteed three days of try-outs during that week. Expect teams to have rosters of 12 players.
Season. If all goes well we will have a condensed season with approximately 14 regular season games between Dec. 21-Feb. 6 (most likely) and playoffs (TBD) for the varsity. I do not have any information regarding winter break, but in terms of family planning, I would expect that we would play during those two weeks in order to get in all 14 games.
Pre-Season Workouts. As many of you know, teams are currently only allowed to conduct workouts outside with limitations on what we can use in terms of sports equipment. We are currently not running any basketball workouts, but we plan to reassess again in a couple of weeks or if the County allows us to run workouts in the gym. With no outdoor basketball hoops or courts at the school, it is not possible to run our normal per-season Green Day skill workouts. For multisport athletes at Madison, if another sport is holding workouts, I recommend you take part.
Conditioning & Try-Out paperwork. In order to take part in try-outs or any pre-season program you must complete the following paperwork (forms & information can be found at www.warhawksports.org). Once you complete the forms, please email them to: .
VHSL Physical – you must use the VHSL form; do not simply use your doctor’s form.
FCPS Concussion Education – Both you and your parents must complete this program.
Interest Meeting. In mid-October, we will likely hold a virtual interest meeting. Please check back here for more details. However, unless there is new information from the State and/or County, most of the information will be the same as included here.
VHSL has scheduled all Winter Sports from December 14, 2020 to February 20, 2021. Please contact the coach directly for updates and future guidance. We will continue to post new information here as it becomes available.
Please contact Coach Roller to be added to the email distribution list.
