How to Register For a School Sport

Students in grades 7-12 who wish to participate on an interscholastic sports team (modified, freshman, JV or varsity) must do the following to register:

1. Submit a valid sports physical.
Athletes who missed Sport Physical Night in June have one more opportunity to receive a sports physical through the school district on Monday, August 14, 9am-11am in the College Room at Tappan Zee High School.

For those who choose to have the sports physical done by their child’s private physician, it’s recommended that the physical is timed to cover the entire school year. If the physical expires during the school year (or mid-season), a student athlete will not be able to compete until a new physical is on file.
