Detailed Instrtuctions for Online Registration Step by Step Instructions

How do I register for Fall 2018 sports?

PARENTS may register students through the myMCPS Parent Portal. Registration should be done online by August 6th to ensure that it is processed in time for the student to be able to participate in tryouts on the first day.

What if the parent needs login information or to add a student to the parent account?

Parents may email Paint Branch Athletic Director, Heather Podosek for login information.

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

Yes, students need an up to date physical to participate in athletics. Physicals are good for one (1) calendar year.  Incoming 9th graders will need to get new physicals for High School.   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 Paint Branch Athletic Director, Heather Podosek or by handing in a paper copy to the coach on the first day of tryouts.

What if I completed the online registration process for the Winter 2017-2018 or Spring 2018 season at Paint Branch?

If a parent registered a student online in the Winter, the parent must complete the registration process again for the Fall 2018 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 Paint Branch?

Information about tryouts can be found on the Tryouts page of the Paint Branch Athletics website. For most Fall sports, tryouts will begin on August 8th. More sport-specific information, such as tryout times and schedules and coach contact information can be found on this page.

When will game/contest schedules be posted for the 2018-2019 school year?

Schedules for games/contests will be finalized in mid-July and should be posted on our website and CountySportszone by the end of July.
