If my child was cleared for a sport in a previous season, do I still need to complete an athletic clearance online?
Yes. However, it will take you considerably less time than the first time. You will still need to click on the “2017 Boys Basketball and Girls Soccer Registration” link on the FamilyID site. In the participant information section, a box reads 'add participant below or click to select'. You can click in this box and should see any students you have registered in the past as options. Select your child's name and the entire form will fill in. Next, select the sport your child plans to play and sign those sports specific agreements. Finally, make sure all fees are paid at the school.
I have not registered before. How do I register my child?
Make sure you have a current physical completed and signed by your doctor. You will be able to upload a copy to FamilyID or send the copy you have to school with your son or daughter to give to Mike Jessee, our Athletic Coordinator.
