We are pleased to release our 2020-21 schedules, including our compressed football schedule. The Handley Athletic Schedules can be viewed at this site. (Note: "Fall" Sports will be found under the Spring Sports Tab this year.) For sports besides football, where possible due to VHSL contest limits, we will be using a schedule that has all NWD pod schools playing each other twice and playing the schools in the opposite NWD pod one time each. In some sports (baseball, basketball, softball) where VHSL contest limits allow more games due to the 60% rule, each school has the opportunity to play a few different schools outside of the NWD. Schedules for Competition Cheer, Cross Country, Golf, Indoor Track, Swim, and Track & Field are still being finalized due to the nature of those sports.
Due to the time of year that the VHSL football season has been scheduled, natural grass fields may not be playable due to safety reasons. To ensure player safety and readiness of the fields for the unusual back-to-back sports seasons, John Handley High School has partnered with FCPS to host all local varsity football games on the turf field at Handley High School. A joint FCPS/JHHS varsity football schedule has been agreed upon.
