Winter Sports Letter 2023-2024

October 26, 2023

Dear Student Athletes and Families,

The Winter Season is fast approaching. We will be having our mandatory Winter Sports Information and Meet the Coaches Night on Monday, November 13th at 5:30PM in the NMHS Main Gym. This meeting is mandatory for students interested in Winter Athletics and one parent/guardian. This event will provide information regarding Athletic Department Policies and Expectations, Medical Information, Online Registration, Academic Eligibility, CIAC Information, and other important topics. Following this presentation at approximately 6:00PM, there will be breakout rooms by sport with a meeting held by the Head Coach of that sport. All Winter student-athletes are expected to be at this team meeting with a parent. This 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 is to help provide you with finding information about our Athletic Department, and with some reminders about the start of the Winter season.

Academic Eligibility for Winter Sports is based off of Marking Period 1 grades, which close on October 30th and will be sent out on November 6th. Students interested in participating in a Winter Sport must have passed at least 4.0 credits worth of courses for the 1st Marking Period in order to be eligible to play a Winter Sport.

The deadline to register for Winter Sports will be November 17th. This gives everyone 3 weeks to
register. 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. Athletic Physicals are valid 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 27th. All other sports will start on November 30th.

Winter Sports Registration is 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:
