Middle school sports programs in Fauquier County, Va., are under new management.

Yesterday, the public school system signed an agreement with privately-run sports leagues to take charge of  certain middle school sports.

The agreement allows the clubs to use the names of the middle schools as well as their facilities, along with the school mascots.

The clubs will conduct background checks on league workers and will recommend student athletes have complete medical examinations prior to participation.
