MPS Athletics is excited to introduce a new online registration system for our athletic families! This new paperless system will ease the burden on parents, guardians, students, schools, and staff during the registration period for high school sports.

Read our Registration Guide here.
We encourage families to register via the new online registration system as soon as possible. By doing so, MPS student-athletes will be ready to hit the ground running for the first day of practice. This new MPS Student-Athlete Eligibility Registration system is also a long-term solution that will allow parents and guardians to create one account per family that will carry over from season to season.
The MPS Student-Athlete Eligibility Registration system primarily serves the need for a paperless eligibility process to aid each athletic program in making sure all athletes are cleared for athletic participation before the first official day of sport practice. This system eliminates the need to keep track of required paper forms and waivers ensuring that athlete eligibility is valid and makes way for the student to join the team.
By creating a personal, password-protected account, students and parents/guardians will be able to complete and sign consent waivers, submit current physical form, concussion agreement, code of conduct, WIAA Rules form, school specific student handbook, transportation permissions, activity fee payment, and all other forms that will allow for athletic participation in MPS City Conference sports.
Once an account has been created, families will still be able to make changes in this electronic format. All activity packets, policies, and documents will be available for future reference.
Do not wait - sign up today!
