The purpose of this letter is to inform you that Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) will be implementing an online registration program for high school interscholastic athletics starting with the upcoming winter season. This program will replace the previous registration process for athletics, which included the submission of multiple paper forms directly to the coach prior to participation.
The online registration program, as part of a systemwide transition to the new myMCPS parent portal, will incorporate all previously required paper forms and documents into an internet-based platform that you will be able to access using your secure myMCPS Parent Portal login. Parents/guardians will also be able to scan and upload their student’s physical as part of the registration process. The online registration portal will be available in English and Spanish. Following are some important dates and action items regarding the upcoming transition to online registration for athletics.
|Now||Students should complete their pre-participation physicals (MCPS Form SR-8) so that the clearance form (last page of SR-8) is ready for online submission or for submission to the coach prior to tryouts/practices. Look under FORMS tab.|
|Now||Parents/guardians should confirm login information and access to the myMCPS parent portal. myMCPS login information has been mailed home for all students. Parents/guardians who need access information for the portal should contact the school. Users can find support materials for using the myMCPS Parent Portal. Look under FORMS tab.
Please complete this EARLY if you want to be eligible to tryout on 11/15. If you wait until 11/14 it will be TOO LATE for tryouts for 11/15!
|October 16||The myMCPS Winter Athletics Registration portal opens for parents/guardians.|
|November 15||Winter sports tryouts/practices begin.|
Additional information and updates will be posted on the MCPS athletics website and on local school athletic department websites. During the online registration process, schools will provide access to computers for families in need of assistance. Thank you in advance for your patience and support as we implement this new initiative and improve the registration experience for all stakeholders across the entire MCPS athletics program.
