Cecil County Public Schools offers a corollary sports program in addition to the general sports program. Corollary sport teams are engaged in competitive matches in a variety of sports. Corollary teams are made up of a combination of students with and without disabilities. A student with disabilities is defined as someone requiring special education services for their educational program. All students with special needs are eligible, regardless of physical, emotional, or cognitive ability. Any athlete, with and without disabilities, is eligible as long as they:
- maintain acceptable academic grades.
- are not a member of a general team in the same sport.
- do not play another sport in the same season.
This mixed ability approach allows athletes to help and support each other, to learn lifetime sport skills, work together as a team, and develop lifetime friendships.

ALL STUDENTS MUST HAVE A PHYSICAL PRIOR TO THE FIRST PRACTICE
Sports physicals must be completed by a physician. Only one physical needs to be done for the entire school year, and must be dated AFTER June 2, 2017. The Parent Information Packets for all athletes are found in the main lobby of your high school. This contains the physical forms for the doctor as well as other important information. If the student wishes to participate on the fall 2017 team, this can be completed during the summer and turned in during sign-ups in September. For winter or spring sports, the forms can be held until the sign-up period for that season. Please contact the Corollary Athletic Director, Sue Snyder, if you would like more details. Her email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org.
