MCPS Athletics is Piloting Pickleball As New Corollary Sport at 11 High Schools

MCPS Athletics is piloting pickleball as a new corollary sport at 11 high schools this fall. USA Pickleball instructor Rob Campbell from MoCo Pickleball held a training session for coaches to prepare them for the season.

The schools that will field teams are: Bethesda-Chevy Chase, Montgomery Blair, James Hubert Blake, Clarksburg, Richard Montgomery, John F. Kennedy, Quince Orchard, Sherwood, Springbrook, Watkins Mill and Wheaton. Watch the video below from the first week of competition as the Sports Insight crew visited Wheaton and Kennedy (courtesy of MCPS).

The goal of corollary sports is to increase interscholastic athletics participation opportunities for all students, in particular students with disabilities. An important goal of corollary teams is to achieve an approximately even ratio of participants with and without disabilities. Other corollary sports include Team Handball in the fall, Bocce in the winter and Allied Softball in the spring.
