CMSL Fall Season Statement

The Chesapeake Middle School League (CMSL) is committed to providing a safe environment for our student-athletes, coaches, officials, and spectators. All CMSL schools may begin tryouts on Tuesday, September 7, 2021. We intend to have a complete fall athletic season and crown a city champion in football and softball. While our schools will do everything they can to complete the fall athletic season, there may come a time when fall championships will be unable to be  completed due to Covid-19 circumstances. Every effort will be made to finish each school’s regular season and championships.  As we have all learned over the past few months living in a pandemic environment, circumstances beyond our control may impact athletic contests.
