Freshman Sports Preview Night Tuesday, June 5th

Greetings Parents and Class of 2023 Athletes


Greetings Parents and Class of 2023 Athletes, 

Congratulations on your acceptance to TJ!

The Office of Student Activities cordially invites you to our Freshman Sports Preview Night on Wednesday, June 5th, 7pm in the TJ Main Gym. As we have done in the past our Athletic Trainer, Heather Murphy will be scheduling VHSL Sports Physical Examinations from 4:30-6:30pm. The Freshman Sports Preview portion of the evening begins at 7PM.    

This is a great opportunity to meet the Student Activities Staff, and connect with our Coaches of Fall, Winter and Spring seasons who will be available to answer any questions you have about their individual programs. Your attendance at Freshman Sports Preview Night will help you learn about the TJ Athletes Program and how you can support the mission of the Colonial Athletic Boosters.  The Colonial  Athletic Boosters are currently looking for parent volunteers to join our TJ Colonial Athletics Boosters team. Responsibilities include organizing team liaisons and volunteers for athletic events and to raise funds for the TJ Student Athletic Office. The Thomas Jefferson Athletic Program supports over 19 different varsity and sub-varsity sports. 

Here is a brief message from our Booster Club President:

The CAB is a small, but very spirited, group of parent volunteers. The volunteers in have a central role in TJ Athletics, so please join the TJ community and support our athletes. Our current leadership team is mostly made up of Class of 2019 parents, so we are in need of help from our current freshman and incoming freshman parents.


Bruce Haynes, we look forward to seeing you on June 5th   

Go Colonials!


Sports Physicals: Registration now Open!

Dear Parents of TJ student-athletes:



Every athlete needs a new athletic physical every school year so save some time and come out to TJ on June 5th and support the TJ Athletic Training Program. Need a BOY SCOUT or CAMP PHYSICAL at the same time? No problem, just make sure you bring all the forms with you.


Heather Murphy is coordinating this popular at-school event to ensure that our athletes are ready for the 2019-2020 seasons. Medical professionals will perform the comprehensive physicals. The screening will check height, weight, vision, vital signs, whole body flexibility, strength, posture and see the medical professional.   ALL PHYSICALS MUST BE COMPLETED ON THE FEBRUARY 2017 versions! Download one from the website under forms.


The physical is $50 for pre-registered students and $60 for walk-ins (taken after 6pm on space available basis) and all money goes to support TJ Athletic Training & the Colonial Athletic Boosters! Ms. Murphy tended to over 750 injuries and did over 3000 treatments this past year. FCPS Athletic Trainers get $0 from the county for supplies. Email for any questions.


There are still open appointments for Wednesday, June 5, to get your student’s annual sports physical at TJ. Go to


Thank you for all your support. See you on the sidelines.


Heather Murphy, MS, LAT, ATC
