Please note:


The Washington Catholic Athletic Conference (WCAC) has approved a plan to hold our three sports seasons, starting with Winter Sports in December.  Due to jurisdictional restrictions the overall format is subject to delays or cancellations and some schools may have delayed or altered participation.  In order to allow our athletes as many possible play dates, the Conference will not sponsor any Championships this year.  We will share more information in the coming weeks. Below is an outline of the basic calendar. These are very exciting possibilities for our student-athletes.
