    Step 1 – Sign-up with the Nurse:

    Winter Sports sign-ups with the school nurse will begin the week of Tuesday, October 1st.  Please ask your child to stop in the nurse’s office to pick up the appropriate form.  The school nurse will give your child either the Physical Evaluation Form or the Health History Update Form depending on your child’s last sports physical date. 

    Students participating on the Cheer and Dance teams that will be continuing into the winter season must complete steps 1 & 2 and renew your physical if the current physical expires before November 25th, 2019.   

    All Health forms are due in the nurse’s office by the following dates:

    • Ice Hockey - October 25th 
    • Swimming & Diving - November 1st 
    • All other MHS & UMS Sports - November 15th

    Please do not wait until the due date to hand in your forms.  GET THEM IN EARLY!!!  We cannot guarantee that forms submitted after the due dates will be cleared in time for the start of tryouts and or practices.  For sports that are conducting tryouts, participation is required but does not guarantee a spot on the team.     

    All Physical Evaluation Forms must be reviewed by the school physician per NJ state law in order for your child to be cleared to participate.  Please hand your forms into the nurse by the dates listed above to allow enough time for review and processing.  Please do not wait until the due date to hand in your forms.  Forms must be submitted directly to the school nurse.  Forms are not to be handed into the main office, emailed, faxed or mailed to the school at any time.  The health office will deliver the forms to the school physician for review. 

    The Allergy Action Plan Form is required once per year ONLY if your child’s physician has prescribed an Epi-Pen for your child’s allergy. The allergy action plan must be renewed by your physician each school year.  Please note that your child will not be allowed to participate in athletics without a completed and updated Allergy Action Plan on file in the nurse’s office. 

    All forms can be accessed by going to the athletic department’s website at: https://www.mtsd.k12.nj.us/Page/10963

    If you have any question concerning the health forms, please contact the following:

    Step 2 - Register Online with FamilyID:

    Montgomery Athletic Department uses the FamilyID athletic registration program. You must register for a team each sports season. Failure to register each season with FamilyID will prevent your child from being cleared to participate.  All sports registrations must be completed by a parent or legal guardian.  Students are not permitted to register on FamilyID.  The FamilyID program does not include the submission of the Physical Evaluation Form, the Health History Update Form or the Allergy Action Plan. 

    FamilyID sports registration for the 2019-20 Winter season will open on October 1st at 12:00am and will close on November 22nd at 11:55pm for all UMS & MHS Winter sports.

    Step 3 - ImPACT Baseline Test (MHS Sports only):
