The online registration window for Spring 2020 sports at Northwest will open on Friday, January 31st! Spring sports are scheduled to begin for most sports on Saturday, February 29th. Below is information on registration and Spring sports tryouts that parents and students need to know.
Here is a memo from MCPS on the online registration process: MCPS Spring Online Registration Memo.
How do I register for Spring 2020 sports?
PARENTS may register students through the MyMCPS Parent Portal. The registration window will open on January 31st. Registration should be done online by February 27th 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 February 27th, 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 email Northwest Athletic Director, Anne Rossiter for login information. Parents may also contact the Athletics Office (301-601-4629) for login information.
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 three 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 Northwest Athletic Director, Anne Rossiter, by handing in a paper copy to NW Athletic Director Anne Rossiter (no later than February 27th).
What if I completed the online registration process last year or for a Fall or Winter sport this year?
If a parent registered a student online last year or for a Fall or Winter sport earlier this year, the parent must complete the registration process again for the Spring 2020 season. The good news is that most of the information entered in the previous season 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.
Where can I find information about tryouts at Northwest?
For most Spring sports, tryouts will begin on Saturday, February 29th. More sport-specific information, such as tryout times and schedules and coach contact information will be coming out as it gets closer to the tryout date.
Where can I find game/contest schedules posted for the Spring 2019 school year?
Schedules for games/contests are posted on our website and CountySportszone.
What if I have additional questions?
If you are having trouble either with the myMCPS Parent Portal or the online registration process, please contact NW Athletic Director Anne Rossiter.
