Registering for a sport:
All students who sign up go on the waitlist until medical forms are cleared. Although the website has a default message saying the team is full, that is not the reason for going to the waitlist. Please read the info below on medical clearance for more details.
**Please note the approximate costs listed for each sport. We will ask for payment at the parent meeting which will be held after an early season practice.

To facilitate tracking and communication of the medical clearance process, allnew registrations will be placed on a "waiting list" until the athlete has been cleared by the nurse and school physician to participate. The website automatically notifies the person signing up that the program is full - that is just a default setting. The program is not full; if that message has been received, the student is registered and they are on the wait list until medical forms are approved.
When MJSAO has been informed that a student has been cleared, they will be removed from the waiting list and his/her parent(s) will be notified via e-mail of the change in status.
You can also at any time check your child's status by clicking on Edit My Account on the main menu and logging in with your e-mail address and password. If the program you registered for indicates that your child remains on the wait list, he/she has not yet been cleared to participate.
Please be sure to complete the required medical forms – either the Athletic Pre-Participation form (this should be filled out by your physician) or the Health History update form. These are available at https://www.madisonpublicschools.org/Page/385.
If the link does not work, please visit our Forms section and download the document.
For each sport in which a child registers, new medical forms must be submitted. Depending on the date of the child's last physical, either the short update form or the full physical form needs to be turned in.
The forms are reviewed by the school nurse and then sent to the school physician who approves a child to participate. This process takes several days. Please see that medical forms are submitted by the registration deadline to make certain that your child will be cleared in time for the start of the season.
