  • May I register my child for each sports season (fall, winter, spring)?  Yes, you may.  To select more than one activity, press the SHIFT key while selecting the activities/sports. However, you can sign them up per season if you wish.  Special Note – All middle school athletes signing up for cross country and/or track will have to register under the 8th grade boys or 8th grade girls sport even if they are in 6th/7th grades.  The same goes for Wrestling – all athletes will register under 8th grade Wrestling.

 

  • If I register my student athlete per season, do I have to register them for their 3rd sport even though there is not a fee for it?  Yes, you will need to register your child for their third sport.  You will not have to fill out all of the contact information again unless something has changed.

 

  • Do I have to pay my child’s sports fee online?  You will NOT pay your child sports fee(s) through the Registration website.  Sports fees may be paid through Efunds, or cash/check to the middle school office. If you click “Pay Now” on the sports website, it will take you directly to Efunds.   

 

  • Will I receive a confirmation email showing that my child is registered?  No, but you may go into your Family Account and view your registration history at any time.

 

  • The website is showing a $0 balance.  Does this mean that there is not a charge for this activity/sport?  No, it only shows a $0 balance because you are not making a payment on their website. 

 

  • How long is a sports physical good for?  Your child’s sports physical//6th grade physical is good for 13 months from the date the physician has signed the physical.  Your child will not be allowed to try out for a team or participate in any practices without a current physical on file. 

 

  • My child is in 6th grade, which sports do not have a fee attached?  There are only two sports in 6th grade that do not have a fee attached.  They are volleyball and basketball (both boys and girls).  Therefore, these sports do not qualify for a first or second sport where fees are concerned.  Cross country, wrestling and track all require that a fee be paid unless it is a third sport.  Cheerleading does have a fee but is only offered in 7th and 8th grades. 

 

  • How do I receive alerts/updates?  On the athletic website look for the Notify Me! tab at the top of the screen.  Follow the directions per screen and you will be able to receive instant change notifications and reminders via email or text message for the sport/activity you select.
