It has been awhile, but I would like to share some encouraging news about middle school sports.
Battlefield Middle School Conference Revised the Athletic Calendar for the 2020 – 2021 to align ourselves with the VHSL and to give our students the best chance of having seasons this year.
Note: Virginia must move out of Phase 3 in order to play the sports the VHSL deemed “moderate to high risk sports” or the guidelines must be rewritten from the State.

The BMSC unanimously voted to not hold any conference playoffs for the 2020 – 2021 seasons. Playoffs and Tournaments will return for the 2021 – 2022 season.
*Please note due to the ongoing and fluctuating information that continues to be brought forth, schedules and timetables could change. Updates will be available as changes occur.
Game schedules will be released the week of Oct 12th.
Conditioning timetables are being discussed with coaches and we are looking at possible options to ensure our students, coaches, staff and anyone else involved is safe. Proper paperwork including an Athletic Physical will be required to participate.
Finally please note there are still a few hurdles we will have to get past, but we will look into every possible option to give our students the chance to play sports this year at CMS.
Please be smart and stay safe!
