Find out the requirements for participating in high school sports in FCPS.
Students and parents will need to complete several steps prior to participating in high school sports, including:
- A completed VHSL Pre-Participation Exam Form (must be on the VHSL form and completed after May 1, in order to be valid for the next school year).
- Student-athletes in FCPS are required to be covered by medical insurance. If your student is not covered by another plan, there is a link below to an option.
- Each student-athlete and a parent/guardian must go through an online registration process that includes the state-mandated concussion education program and Emergency Care Card information before they may try-out for an athletic team at the high school. Each high school has a unique registration site. Visit the specific high school's athletic/activities internet site to find this. Specific questions can be addressed by the Director of Student Activities at the high school.
