For your child to be cleared to participate on a sports team, the 3-step process detailed below must be completed. All team managers and statisticians need to complete steps 1 and 2 only.
Step 1 – Sign-up with the Nurse:
Fall Sports sign-ups with the school nurse will begin the week of Monday May 14th. 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.
· All current 6th grade students are to sign-up with the LMS nurse
· All current 7th & 8th grade students are to sign-up with the UMS nurse
· All current 9th thru 11th grade students are to sign-up with the MHS nurse
All MHS sports forms are due in the nurse’s office by Thursday July 26th
All UMS sports forms are due in the nurse’s office by Thursday August 16th
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 practices.
All Physical Evaluation Forms must be reviewed by the school physician per NJ state law for your child to be cleared to participate. Please hand your forms into the nurse by the date listed above to allow enough time for review and processing. Current 6th grade students may hand in completed health forms to the LMS nurse up to the last day of school. After that the forms must be handed into the UMS nurse. 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.
During the summer recess, the nurse’s office will be open based on a schedule that will be published on the UMS & MHS website calendars. This schedule will be available on the website starting June 1st.
No clearance from our school physician will take place August 20th thru August 25th. Please keep that in mind when scheduling your child’s physical.
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.

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 2018 fall season will open on May 26th at 12:00am. All FamilyID registration must be completed by August 10th for high school sports and September 1st for Upper Middle School Sports.

Step 3 - ImPACT Baseline Test (MHS Sports only):
The online ImPACT baseline test is required once a year during the freshman & junior years before the athlete’s first sport. If you are in 10th or 12th grade and this is your first time on a sports team or you are new to Montgomery High School, you will need to take the baseline test. If you are currently being treated by a doctor for a concussion, do not take the baseline test and see one of the Athletic Trainers ASAP.
