SPRING SPORTS REGISTRATION

MCPS and Einstein High School are excited to announce that registration for Spring Sports will open on March 22nd at 10 am! Below is information regarding the upcoming Fall Sports season, as well as the registration process. Additional information can be found in this memo from MCPS regarding the return to athletics.

Registration Information

How to Register
Students must be registered by a parent through the ParentVue Registration Information. More information regarding the registration process can be found in this letter from MCPS. Registration will remain open through April 22, 2021. Registration will close on this date to allow coaches the opportunity to group students appropriately and for coaches and schools to plan program operations.

ParentVue Troubleshooting Information 
If a parent is having trouble logging into the ParentVue Registration Information:

  • If you have never activated your parent account:
    Parents were sent activation information at the beginning of the school year, which included an Activation Key. If you still have this information, use it to activate your parent account. If you do not have the activation information, email Einstein’s Athletics Registration Specialist Robin Dubois robyn_e_dubois@mcpsmd.org or any staff member in the main office: Please call 240-740-2400.
  • Be sure to include the student name, ID and parent name in the email.
  • Forgot your password? Click on the Forgot Password link on the ParentVue Portal.
  • Forgot the email address you used to activate your account? Email Einstein’s Athletics Registration Specialist Robin Dubois robyn_e_dubois@mcpsmd.org or email Einstein’s Athletics Specialist: Jermaine_A_Howell@mcpsmd.org
  • Be sure to include the student name, ID and parent name in the email.
  • If you have a problem with your address in ParentVue and you are getting an error message:

You do not have any students associated with your profile. If you have a student that should be associated with your profile please stop here and contact your school to resolve. If you are attempting to complete an Athletic Registration for a student please also contact your school’s Athletic Specialist for information about how to register. 

The solution to this issue:  

They need to make sure they have completed the annual verification online.  If they have done this, the registrar needs to review the record and accept them.  This will then allow the parent to register for fall sports.  The way to check to see if they are in the annual verification queue is the following:  Parents should contact our Registrar, Ms. Perez at rebecca_a_perez@mcpsmd.org

Pre-Participation Physicals
Students should complete their pre-participation physical (MCPS Form SR-8) so that the medical eligibility form (last page of SR-8) is ready for online submission or for submission to the coach prior to tryouts/practices. Physicals are valid for one calendar year. Note: This is a change from the policy during the virtual engagement in the first semester. At that time, physicals were valid for two years. A partial list of Clinics that offer Sports Physicals within the Montgomery County area is available online. Physicals can be uploaded by the parent during the registration process. However, if a parent needs to submit a physical after the student has already been registered, email an electronic copy of the pre-participation physical (MCPS Form SR-8) to Einstein Athletics Specialist: Jermaine_A_Howell@mcpsmd.org

What is the timeline for the start of sports?
Registration will open on March 22nd. While the Spring season” will begin on April 17th, MCPS will enter into a phase of educating stakeholders at that time, as we prepare for potential in-person operations.  The spring season, per the Maryland Public Secondary Schools Athletic Association (MPSSAA) calendar, runs from April 17, 2021, through June 6, 2021.

What is the MCPS policy on participation by coaches and/or students in in-person activities?
In-person programming will be optional for coaches and student-athletes. As a result, program offerings will be school and team-specific, depending on the selection of coaches and the interest of student-athletes. Program operations will be confirmed in the coming weeks, as schools finalize their options and registrations are received from student-athletes.

Does this mean we will definitely start in-person activities?
All in-person programming and activities would only be conducted if health metrics allow and in alignment with guidelines and protocols designated by the COVID-19 Task Force for MCPS Athletics. Such guidelines are included in the Return to R.A.I.S.E. Strategic Plan and comply with guidelines and recommendations released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE), Maryland Public Secondary Schools Athletic Association (MPSSAA), and Montgomery County.

Will we have contests and games?
It is important to note that in-person programming will begin with conditioning and skills-based practices/tryouts, which must occur for a minimum of 20 calendar days (starting with the first practice) prior to any contests or competition, per MPSSAA regulations. Competition and contests may not occur if health metrics do not allow. Activities will be conducted in-person to the extent possible throughout the semester, pending health metrics and necessary approval.

What adjustments will be made to operations based on COVID-19?
The following resources are available for students and parents/guardians regarding the operations of the MCPS athletics program. All documents, information, and guidance are subject to change, based on the ever-changing dynamics of COVID-19.
