Fall Sports Letter 2024-2025

May 31, 2024

Dear Student Athletes and Families,

Greetings to our returning NMHS Student-Athletes and a big welcome to our incoming Freshman Class of 2028!  Although Summer vacation is just about to start, we are already planning for the upcoming 2024 Fall Season which will be here before we know it.  This letter will provide you with some important information you will need for the 2024 Fall Sports Season.  We will be having our Fall Sports Information and Meet the Coaches Night on Monday, June 10th at 5:00PM in the NMHS Theater.  You will be provided information regarding Athletic Department Policies and Expectations, Medical Information, Online Registration‚Äč, Academic Eligibility, CIAC Information, and other important topics.  All prospective Fall student-athletes are expected to attend this meeting with a parent/guardian.  After my 30 minute presentation, teams will separate into breakout rooms to meet the coaches of the sport you are interested in.  This individual sport meeting will provide the opportunity to meet the coaching staff of your child's potential sport, set up team communications, get specific information about the tryout schedule, philosophy, and team rules/expectations. Cheerleading and Dance are not required to attend  as they have already had tryouts.  Girls Cross Country will not be meeting after my presentation as they have already had a meeting.  Unified Soccer will send out information when the new school year starts.  This letter will also help provide you with how to find information about the NMHS Athletic Department, and with some reminders about the start of the Fall season.

The majority of the information you will need to know can be found on the high school web page under the “Athletics” tab.  The link to this page is:

Here you can find:

  • The Athletic Handbook and Travel Release Form

  • Start Dates and First Day of Practice times and locations (will be updated with times in mid-July)

  • Game Schedules for the 2024 Fall Season (will be updated by the end of June)

  • Contact information for the Athletic Department and all of our Head Coaches

  • Resources for Parents and Student-Athletes

We are likely transitioning to a new and improved registration system for the 2024-2025 school year.  Once the details are finalized, instructions and links to register will be communicated.  Once Registration is open, the deadline to register for Fall Sports will be July 31st.  It is essential that you register for your sport before this deadline to allow our nurses enough time to be able to confirm that physicals are up to date. Please check your physicals to make sure they are current. It is necessary that a SIGNED, UP TO DATE PHYSICAL IS UPLOADED TO THE REGISTRATION PAGE once registration is open.  The ENTIRE physical must be uploaded.  Physicals are good for 13 months.  Again, instructions and links will be communicated when registration is up and running.  Without completing the registration and uploading an up to date physical, a student may not participate in any practices or games. 

Our coaches will be provided with a report of students on the first day of practice which will tell them who is approved or unapproved.  Please make sure to register ahead of time to avoid any delays.  Additionally, please review the Athletic Handbook on the high school web page so you are familiar with the expectations and policies of the New Milford High School Athletic Department.  Our Coaches will also set up their own format of communication of team information. 

A reminder that our Fall Sports include:

                     - Cheerleading                       - Dance

                     - Boys Cross Country             - Girls Cross Country

                     - Field Hockey                       - Football

                     - Boys Soccer                         - Girls Soccer

                     - Girls Swimming and Diving - Girls Volleyball

                     - Unified Soccer                     - Golf

If you cannot make the meeting and/or if have sport specific questions, please use the contact information on the Athletic website for our Head Coaches.  If you have any questions in regards to Athletics, please contact me either through email at:, or by phone at: 860-350-6647 ext. 1411.  Looking forward to a great Fall Season!

Go Green Wave!
