FALL SPORTS INFORMATION LETTER 2021
June 14, 2021
Dear Student Athletes and Families,
Greetings to our returning NMHS Student-Athletes and a big welcome to our incoming Freshman Class of 2025! Although Summer vacation is just about to start, we are already planning for the upcoming Fall Season which will be here before we know it. This letter and the video sent home along with it will provide you with some important information you will need for the 2021 Fall Sports Season. You will be provided information regarding Athletic Department Policies and Expectations, Medical Information, Online Registration, Academic Eligibility, CIAC Information, and other important topics. All prospective Fall student-athletes are expected to review this information and watch the video. Additionally, you will see the schedule for individual sport meetings that will take place this week and next week. This individual sport meeting will provide the opportunity to meet the coaching staff of your child's potential sport to get specific information about the tryout schedule, philosophy, and team rules/expectations. This letter will also help provide you with how to find information about out 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: https://nmhs.newmilfordps.org/athletics

- The Link to our Online Registration for Fall Sports (Registration is Open!!)
- The Athletic Handbook and Travel Release Form

- Game Schedules for the 2021 Fall Season (will be updated by the end of June)
- Contact information for the Athletic Department and all of our Head Coaches

Fall Athletics Registration is open!! The addition of the online registration has eliminated the need to collect many forms. The deadline to register for Fall Sports will be August 9th for football and golf, and August 16th for all other Fall Sports It is essential that you register for your sport before these deadlines to allow our nurses enough time to be able to confirm that physicals are up to date. In order to complete the online registration, both students and parents need to read and electronically sign the athletic permission form, concussion education plan and consent, and the sudden cardiac arrest forms. All Fall student athletes need to be registered and “APPROVED” prior to being able to participate on their first day of practice. In addition to completing the online registration, it is necessary that a SIGNED, UP TO DATE PHYSICAL IS UPLOADED TO THE REGISTRATION PAGE. The ENTIRE physical must be uploaded. There are instructions on the “Participant Information” section of the registration page on how to upload the physical. You can scan and upload the file, or you can even take a picture with your phone and upload it that way. Without completing the registration and uploading an up to date physical, a student may not participate in any practices or games. One other note with the online registration is for the Student ID #. If you have not been assigned an ID # or don’t know what it is, you can enter “N/A” and complete your registration. The link for fall registration is: https://www.familyid.com/new-milford-high-school/new-milford-2021-fall-athletics-registration
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.
We have made great efforts to improve the communication between the Athletic Department and Students and Families by having as much of the necessary information available on our Athletics Website. Our Coaches will also set up their own format of communication of team information.
