Online Registration for Fall 2018 Athletes beginning June 1st

In response to cutting back on the collection of paperwork, HCPSS has decided to allow families to submit the necessary documents to participate in HS Athletics via HCPSS Connect.  Paperwork can still be submitted as we have done for years but we are hoping that many families will take advantage of this online submission process.

Online registration for 2018 athletics will be available beginning June 1 via HCPSS Connect using this link: http://www.hcpss.org/connect/

When attempting to submit online, we have been told to make sure Pop Ups are Allowed and use parents account for Connect

Please, make sure Physicals have all signatures (Parent/Guardian, Athlete, and Physician) before scanning and uploading. 

Utility (BGE, Potomac Edison, Sun City,...Water, Cable/Satellite are allowed)

**No Cell Phone Bills will be accepted** 

Parents will be able to fill out required forms, upload physicals and proof of residency, and more. For more information, please contact your school’s Athletics and Activities manager.

Athletic Rules of Conduct

At all Howard County athletic events, we strive to provide a pleasant and safe environment for all spectators and participants. We ask fans to refrain from:

  • Intimidating or harassing the players, coaches, officials, or fans
  • Using profanity
  • Throwing objects
  • Entering the playing area
  • Loitering in the hallways or on the grounds
  • Those who fail to abide by the Rules of Conduct will be asked to leave the contest, and could result in a trespass letter banning the spectator from future athletic events at the school.

Admission is a privilege to observe a contest, not a license to display insensitive or offensive behavior. Enjoy the event! Be a fan, not a fanatic!
