Sport Participation Requirements: Athletic Registration found under Links
The Mahwah High School Athletic Department is excited to announce that we are now offering the convenience of online registration for all sports through PowerMedia*
IMPORTANT NOTE: There are 2 separate processes involved with being cleared to participate in a sport:
1. Athletic Registration
2. Physical Examination Completion
While the registration process is now 100% paperless, the Physical Exam form (including the Health History questionnaire) still needs to be either hand-delivered to our school nurse, Mrs. Mary Beth Kakolewski, or emailed firstname.lastname@example.org, or uploaded into the online registration.
A student athlete is not cleared to participate until you receive an email confirmation stating that all registration forms have been successfully completed online AND the physical exam date has been validated.
Footnote: *Power Media is a secure registration platform that provides you with an easy, user-friendly way to register for our athletic programs, and helps us to be more administratively and environmentally responsible. When you register, the system keeps track of your family profile so you enter information only once for multiple student-athletes and multiple sports teams.
