Athletics & Extracurricular Activities

Athletics & Extracurricular Activities

Athletic teams and extracurricular activities teach and enhance students’ leadership abilities, introduce and strengthen a range of skills, allow them to be part of a community within a community, and facilitate new associations with others who share a common interest. The overall goal of both programs is to enrich the lives of Martinsville students beyond the classroom.


MCPS athletic teams have a long history of success. Our many programs offer student-athletes the chance to not only hone their physical abilities field, track, mat, or court, but to practice essential skills such as communication, goal-setting, cooperation, and more that will remain with them long after they have participated in their last athletic competition.

Any student who wishes to participate in athletics must complete the VHSL Physical Form.
