SHS fall practice schedule is announced: Athletic forms, yellow cards must be presented to participate at first practices

Once again, the Southington public schools athletic department will go with FamilyID online registration for 2018 fall sports at the middle and high schools.

FamilyID is a secure registration platform that provides athletes with an easy, user-friendly way to register for middle school and high school programs. The FamilyID system keeps track of profile information to allow each family member to apply for multiple programs throughout the year.

All athletes that are interested in participating in fall sports must register online. To register online, an applicant must have had a physical exam within the past 13 months which was signed by a physician. It also must be in effect for the entire length of the sports season. If a student’s physical expires during the season, they will not be able to play until a new physical exam is received.

Applicants will need the following information to complete the registration: doctor, health insurance, emergency contacts, and phone numbers. To register, visit www.familyid.com/southington-athletics. Click on “Programs” on that site to register.

The registration deadline is Tuesday, Aug. 21 for all fall sports except football. Football’s registration deadline is Friday, Aug. 10. The nurse will be in the office on Monday, Aug. 20, to approve physicals. Fall sports begin on Thursday, Aug. 23 for all sports except football. Football starts on Friday, Aug. 17.

All online registration and updated physicals must be completed and in the nurse’s office before students can try out or practice.
