Dear Parent or Guardian of Prospective Gloversville Student/Athlete,
It is with a hopeful spirit that I write this letter regarding Fall Athletics. We are anxiously anticipating the start of the 2020-2021 school year, and specifically the opportunity to get back to athletic normalcy.
We are excited to announce that we are now offering the convenience of online registration through FamilyID (www.familyid.com). FamilyID is a secure registration platform that provides you with an easy, user-friendly way to register for our programs, and helps us to be more administratively efficient and environmentally responsible. When you register through FamilyID, the system keeps track of your information in your FamilyID profile. You enter your information only once for each family member for multiple uses and multiple programs.
The official sign-ups will be opened 30 days prior to the start of your child’s sport season. All varsity, JV and modified sports will begin on Monday, September 21st. Consequently, we will open official sign-ups on Friday, August 21st for those respective levels. These sign-ups will be through the FamilyID link. To locate this link simply access the district main site and go to SITES, Gloversville High School, Athletic Information and click on FamilyID.
The sign-ups will include all modified, JV, and varsity teams. If your son/daughter will be entering grades 7 or 8 in the Fall they should be signing up for a modified level sport unless they have been contacted by a coach. All students entering grades 9 and 10 will be signing up for the JV level (if available) and those entering grades 11 or 12 will sign-up for the varsity team.
Please note that you will be asked to state whether or not you will need an up to date physical offered by the school, or if you will be providing us with that update from your family physician. Please fill this information out to the best of your ability.
Thank you all so much for taking the time to go through this. I hope that you all are staying safe, healthy, and active during these ever changing times. All the best and GO HUSKIES and DRAGONS!
Director of Health, Physical Education and Athletics
