WINTER SPORTS INFORMATION LETTER 2021-22
November 1, 2021
Dear Winter Student-Athletes and Families,
We have just about made it through the Fall Season, and now the focus will shift to being prepared for the Winter Season. At this point in time, the Department of Public Health (DPH), the Connecticut State Medical Society Sports Medicine Committee (CSMS SMC), the Governor’s Office, and the CIAC are reviewing the final draft protocols for each Winter Sport. We are anticipating that ALL sports will be taking place this Winter with specific protocols and mitigating strategies in place. We are hoping to receive this guidance by Friday, November 5th. Once we have this information, a date and time will be set and communicated for the Winter Pre-season Sports Meeting and meet the coaches night.
A reminder that our Winter Sports include:
- Boys Basketball - Girls Basketball
- Cheerleading - Dance
- Gymnastics - Boys Ice Hockey
- Boys Indoor Track - Girls Ice Hockey (Coop Masuk Host School)
- Girls Indoor Track - Wrestling
- Boys Swimming and Diving
Winter Sports Registration is now open for all sports. Cheerleading and Dance do not have to register again, as they already registered in the Fall. Please click on this link to register for Winter Sports: FamilyID Winter Sports Registration 2021-22
The deadline to register for Winter Sports will be November 19th. It is essential that you register for your sport by this date 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, the sudden cardiac arrest form, and the COVID notice of risk form. In addition to completing the online registration, it is required that a SIGNED, UP TO DATE PHYSICAL IS UPLOADED TO THE REGISTRATION PAGE. If you cannot upload your most recent physical, then you must bring a copy of your most recent physical to the nurse by the deadlines stated above. The ENTIRE physical must be uploaded or physically brought in to the nurse. There are instructions on the registration page on how to upload physicals. **One change with Athletic Physicals is that current physicals are back to being good for 13 months. 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 if you don’t know what it is, you can enter “N/A” and complete your registration.
The first day of Winter practices for Girls Basketball, Boys Ice Hockey, and Wrestling will be November 29th. All other sports will start on December 2nd.
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.
Additional information will be shared in the forthcoming week(s) in regards to preseason meetings and updates on the Winter Sports plan once it is released by the CIAC. Schedules for Winter Sports can be found on the Athletics Website at: https://nmhs.newmilfordps.org/athletics
If you have sport specific questions, please use the contact information on the Athletic website for our Head Coaches first. If you have any questions in regards to Athletics, please contact me either through email at: email@example.com, or by phone at: 860-350-6647 ext. 1411.
