FeePay for 2018-19 Winter Athletes

FeePay for the 2018-19 Winter Sports Season is open for enrollment at this time.  Please be sure that your athlete is signed up via FeePay prior to the first day of practice/tryouts.

 

SQUAD SELECTION

In accordance with the MHS philosophy of athletics and our desire to have as many students as possible participate in the athletic program at MHS, we encourage coaches to retain as many athletes as possible (most sports utilizing a rubric system) without affecting the integrity of their sport.  Time, facilities, equipment, personal preference, and other factors place limitations on the most effective squad size for any particular sport.  When developing policy with respect to squad selection, we strive to maximize opportunities for our athletes without diluting the quality of the program. Most of our athletic teams do not cut at the Freshmen level, however in Volleyball, Basketball, Soccer, and Hockey the above mentioned factors may force us to cut from year to year in those sports. Remember, if you get cut from one of these sports it may open the door to a new opportunity.

ATHLETIC FORMS:

All athletic forms, except the physical form, will be submitted electronically when you sign-up to register your student(s) via FeePay.   The forms will auto-populate at the time that you choose the fall sport or any year long club that charges a club user fee. 

For those that do not have access to a computer, the athletic office will accept hardcopy forms.  We anticipate 90% of all required forms, EXCEPT THE PHYSICAL FORM, to be submitted electronically.  

NOTE:  ALL PHYSICAL FORMS MUST BE TURNED INTO THE ATHLETIC OFFICE PRIOR TO THE FIRST DAY OF TRYOUTS/PRACTICE OR  YOUR STUDENT WILL BE INELIGIBLE TO PARTICIPATE UNTIL A VALID DATE IS ON FILE.  

You will be unable to register for a winter or spring sport via FeePay until a pre-determined date established by the district.  A district correspondence will go out in October and March informing you that you are able to sign up via FeePay.  Again, at the time you choose the sport you wish to sign your student up for and the forms needed will then auto-populate.  These forms include the consent form, concussion form, emergency contact card and transportation/driving waivers.  Again, the only form that you will need to turn into the athletic office will be the MEDICAL CLEARANCE FORM which you can now find here on the MHS website under Athletics<Athletic Information<Forms.
