    Union County Public Schools is pleased to partner with Family ID for online registration! These forms must be completed prior to any involvement in pre-season skill development sessions or tryouts.

    How to register to participate in middle school athletics in UCPS:

    NEW STUDENT ATHLETES:

    Step 1: Create a FamilyID Registration. Click below to register. 

    FamilyID Link

    Step 2: Download the NCHSAA Preparticipation Evaluation form upon completion of your FamilyID Registration submission. 

    (Forms linked below)

    Step 3: Submit NCHSAA Preparticipation Evaluation to the Athletic Director of your middle school by uploading a readable version into the appropriate location in FamilyID or emailing directly to the Athletic Director.  A hard copy should only be submitted with the permission of the Athletic Director.  

    You will receive an email notifying you once you submit your FamilyID registration and will receive another email notifying you once your registration has been approved. Please allow time for staff to process the registration for approval. 

    RETURNING STUDENT ATHLETES THAT HAVE USED FAMILY ID PREVIOUSLY:

    Step 2: If your physical is still valid from the previous year and on file with the school, you do not need to upload a new one. Please be aware of when your physical is set to expire. 

    You will receive an email notifying you once you submit your FamilyID registration and will receive another email notifying you once your registration has been approved. Please allow time for staff to process the registration for approval. 

     

    By completing the FamilyID registration and the UCPS Athletic Eligibility packet, my child and I have read and understand the athletic eligibility requirements to participate. I understand, any forgery or failure to properly sign the information contained in the eligibility packet (including Family ID online registration) may result in fines and penalties to my child's school and/or the ineligibility of my student-athlete for 365 days.

    Don't Get Caught Without a Valid Physical! 

    The NCHSAA states that in order to be eligible for practice or participation in high school athletic activities a player must receive a medical examination once every 395 days by a duly licensed physician, nurse practitioner, or physician's assistant. If the athlete's physical expires they become ineligible and can not practice or play until a current physical is on file with the school. This includes in season and out of season workouts.
