Multiple Teams · On-Line Registration starts with the winter season

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.


Date Action Item
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.
