This year will not be like past years due to COVID Guidelines and the safety of our students and staff.  Spectators will not be allowed to attend any athletic events.  Patriot High School and many of our opponents may be able to live stream games this Winter through the NFHS Network.  You can create an account to watch our events at NFHS Network Patriot HS

Mitigation strategies for each sport that are recommended by the Governor’s Office, VHSL, and PWCS will be followed to ensure the safety of all participants and allow for a successful season.


Swim tryouts  (Prince William Aquatics Center - Colgan):

 Swimmers will be divided into groups (still being decided) for time trials on the following days/times:

Mon 12/14 - 6:45pm-7:45pm

Tues 12/15 - 5:30pm-6:30pm

 Wed 12/16 - 6:45pm-7:45pm

Dive Start Date (Tryouts): Mon 12/14, Tues 12/15, Wed 12/16, Thurs 12/17 - 4:15-5:15 pm

* Due to the shortened season, no "learn to dive" clinics will be held prior to tryouts, as done in the past.

 

Dive Practice Time: Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays - 4:15-5:15 pm. We will likely split the teams practice days to reduce numbers on deck to accommodate social distancing standards. Each diver will have two set practices per week. 

 

Dive Roster:

There will be no practice team this year due to the shortened season. All divers must have 6 dives from 4 categories to make the team this year. We will accept 4 females and 4 males per school. If there is a diver that shows potential, and is able to perform a minimum of 4 dives from 4 categories, and the quota for that school's team has not been met, we will evaluate the situation on a case-by-case basis. We will not accept more than 4 female and 4 male divers per school.

* Because of COVID restrictions, there will be a limited number of divers allowed in each lane and on deck.
