Tryout Information

Registration for all fall sports will take place via the MyMCPS Portal beginning on JULY 15. The registration deadline is AUGUST 12. Your information must be in the system in order for your child to tryout when the season begins on AUGUST 14. If your child is not registered on the MCPS Portal (not the student portal) they will not be able to tryout. Use the Google Chrome browser when registering.

All physicals must be uploaded to the portal or turned in or emailed to the Athletic Director on or before AUGUST 12

PRE-PARTICIPATION PHYSICAL EVALUATION FOR ATHLETICS

Students will not be eligible for the first day of tryouts if you bring your paperwork to the coach. All information must be in the MyMCPS Portal. Even if your child was registered for a sport in a previous season you must do the same process again for this season.

How Do I Register?

  1. Register your child on the MyMCPS Portal.
  2. If your child has a current physical on file it will show up when you register. If not, complete the registration and upload the physical by AUGUST 12 to ensure you child is eligible to compete on AUGUST 14.
  3. Some teams may require additional forms but they are sport-specific and not required by MCPS. They will not be on the registration portal.  Please contact the coach to obtain these forms.
