Fall 2019 Sports Registration Information

The online registration window for Fall 2019 sports at Walter Johnson will open on July 15th! Fall sports are scheduled to begin for most sports on Wednesday, August 14th. Below is information on registration and Fall sports tryouts that parents and students need to know.Here is a memo from MCPS on the online registration process: MCPS Fall Registration Memo.How do I register for Fall 2019 sports?PARENTS may register students through the myMCPS Parent Portal. The registration window will open on July 15th. Registration should be done online by August 11th to ensure that it is processed in time for the student to be able to participate in tryouts on the first day. (Registration will remain open after August 11th, but waiting until after that date may delay your student’s ability to tryout).What if the parent needs login information or to add a student to the parent account?

Parents may contact the Main Office (301-803-7100) for login information. Parents may also email Athletic Director Tom Rogers – thomas_w_rogers@mcpsmd.org

Will the student need a Physical Clearance Form (Physical)?

Yes, students need an up to date physical to participate in athletics. If a student already has a physical on file at the school, it is good for one calendar year. Otherwise, the student will need an updated physical, completed by a physician. Parents can download the Physical Clearance Form. There are four ways to submit the Physical Clearance Form: by scanning it and uploading it during the online registration process, by scanning it and emailing it to Walter Johnson Athletic Director Tom Rogers, by handing in a paper copy to the Main Office at WJ (Attn: Athletic Director Tom Rogers – no later than August 9th) or by handing in a paper copy to the coach on the first day of tryouts.
*Note: Students entering Walter Johnson for the first time should plan to submit a new Physical Clearance Form for the season. Medical records from middle schools and for transferring students likely have not yet been filed at WJ in time for August tryouts.

What if I completed the online registration process last year?

If a parent registered a student online last year, the parent must complete the registration process again for the Fall 2019 season. The good news is that most of the information entered in the previous registration will have saved and will be pre-populated, which will make the process easier in the current season.

Does MCPS have more detailed directions for how to use the myMCPS portal and register online?

Yes! More detailed directions can be found here.
