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)

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.
