 Information for Registration

To begin, in order to register and access online registration, parents/guardians must confirm their login information to the myMCPS Parent Portal.  myMCPS login information was mailed home for all students.  Parents/guardians who need login information for the portal should contact the school.  Parents/guardians can find support materials for using the myMCPS Parent Portal at http://www.montgomeryschoolsmd.org/mymcps-classroom/.

During registration, parents/guardians will need to verify information about the student-athlete’s medical providers, health insurance, health history, immunizations, physical exams and medications. MCPS Form SR-8, Pre-Participation Physical Evaluation for Athletics must be completed prior to student participation in tryouts and practices.  Parent/guardians can upload the electronic copy of the Physical – Clearance Form OR provide a hard copy to the athletic director.
