As you may remember, the 2018-2019 school year marked a change in the process by which students were required to register and submit paperwork for the activity of choice. The District will continue to offer the convenience of online registration through FamilyID (www.familyid.com) for the upcoming 2019-2020 school year. Below is information for you to review that may be beneficial:
FamilyID is a secure registration platform that provides students and families with an easy, user-friendly way to register for our programs, and helps us to be more administratively efficient and environmentally responsible. When students and families register through FamilyID, the system keeps track of their information in a FamilyID profile. Students enter their information only one time regardless of the number of activities and events they participate in. The following are points of emphasis:
All information will now be entered online
**with the exception of Section 6 (the actual physical) - this will still be a hard copy that students must have completed by a doctor. Upon completion, students will be able to upload the form into their FamilyID account
- Section 6 forms are available to the right under the "Links" section or by visiting the Athletic Office or website www.norwinathletics.org
- Please note the actual physical cannot be completed/dated prior to June 1st of 2019
Students should not complete the Family ID Account information
**This should be completed by a parent/guardian – The Parent of Guardian should be the account owner
**Email addresses should be those of the parent – keep in mind that emergency contact lists are created from this information
Only create one account per student (do not create a new account for each sport or school year)
**If you forget your login credentials, please contact the FamilyID help line for assistance
**Creating additional accounts may cause certain accounts not to be approved
If students wish to receive a sports physical with their family physician, only Section 6 of the PIAA CIPPE is needed (all information on other Sections can be completed when registering with FamilyID). Again, the physician must complete and sign this form and date after June 1, 2019. Students and/or parents will then be responsible for uploading a signed and dated copy of Section 6 to their FamilyID account.
Please plan to complete your entire registration in Family ID (including uploaded Section 6) at least one (1) week prior to the start of your season. You will receive email notification when your registration has been received AND APPROVED. All late registrations or those not receiving an approval email, will not be guaranteed the opportunity to practice on the first day of tryouts. You can always check the status of your child's Athletic Participation Clearance Status by logging into your FamilyID account and selecting "VIEW OR EDIT MY REGISTRATIONS". Select the "SUMMARY" tab at the end of the current registration.
ImPACT Baseline Testing will once again be offered, free of charge, prior to the start of the spring season for all students entering 7th, 9th, and 11th grades and any student who has not been tested within the last year for a sport. (this will be scheduled through the head coach of each sport).
