Winter Sports Season Beginning


Cave Spring Middle School Parents & Guardians,


Monday, December 7th, Cave Spring Middle Schools will be entering our Winter Sports Season with Boys Basketball, Girls Basketball, Wrestling, and Cheerleading as our in-season teams.  However, based on the Regional Athletic Return to Play Criteria (see attachment), our teams will be following Phase II guidelines in the RCPS Return-to-Play Plan (see attachment). 


While the protocols will limit what our coaches can do right now, our Winter Sports teams will begin evaluating students’ athletic ability at workouts in order to establish their team rosters by the time we leave for Winter Break.  We have been offering work-outs once a week for each team, but starting Monday, December 7th, we will transition to workouts 2-days per week for each team with the following schedule:

Due to COVID protocols, Head Coaches have had to plan and schedule these workouts in great detail with reserved spots for students to ensure space and distancing requirements can be met.  If your student is interested in participating in any of our Winter Sports, please be sure to:

  • Provide a fully completed VHSL Physical to the CSMS Front Office
  • Complete the 2020 Sports Interest Survey on the School Webpage under Athletics
  • Check the Athletic Calendar Regularly to confirm team events

If you have team-specific questions, you can reach out to our head coaches by email which can be found on the School Webpage > Athletics > Contact a Coach link.

Thank you for your patience and flexibility as we all work through these COVID changes and protocols.
