Fall Try-Out Dates: The first available day to begin fall sports activities is Friday, August 21, 2020 (Football) and Monday, August 24, 2020 (All other sports). Tryout times and locations will be listed on the athletics web page by August 7, 2019 or earlier. Link to the schedule: Stoughton Athletics Master Daily Calendar
1. Physical Exams- No student may participate in any practice, tryout or game until a physical exam has been submitted to the Stoughton High School Nurse's office. The physical exam must NOT be dated more than 13 months old through the course of a given season to be eligible to participate. Once a physical exam is over 13 months old the student will be declared ineligible until a valid physical (under 13 months old) is submitted to the Nurse's office. Take this opportunity to double check with the Nurse's office that your most up-to-date physical is on file. If you have been examined within the 13 month period and the Nurse does not have a copy, please contact your primary care and request a copy so the Nurse may clear your son or daughter. If you can not get an appointment, urgent care is an option for those willing to pay an additional fee for the service. Students and Families should make every effort to confirm an up to date physical is on file with the school nurse. In order to be eligible for Day #1 of your sport's tryouts your completed, up-to-date physical needs to be turned into the Nurse's Office by August 21, 2020.
2. Online Registration Form- Students can not try-out or participate in any sport until they have submitted a FamilyID registration form. If you are having technical difficulties please contact FamilyID for assistance at 781-205-2800 x1. In order to be eligible for Day #1 of your sport's tryouts and avoid the late registration penalty, your online registration needs to be completed by Wednesday, August 19th for Football and Friday, August 21st for All Other Fall Sports.
