Dear Mill Creek Families,
Is your child interested in turning out for a sport during 4th season? If so, this message is for you!
Why should I worry about this now? There is nothing worse than when an athlete wants to try out for a team but can’t because they aren’t registered or don’t have a physical. We want to work together with you to help all kids who want to be involved in athletics, have that become a reality. While not all family members likely have the next two weeks off for a holiday break, the kids can use this time to work on registering for athletics or making an appointment for a physical. The local Kent Multi-Care offers walk in physicals and works with families on the financial end of it if there are needs.
Why do we have to register online? As you may or may not know, Kent School District moved to online registration through FamilyID (www.familyid.com) this year. 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.
What does my child need to be cleared prior to April 17th when Boys Soccer and Track begin? Two things are needed. 1) A current physical which included the doctor’s signature, a date next to the signature, and the document must state your child is cleared for athletics. It is best if you have the doctor fill out the KSD physical form so that all required elements will be included. Copies are located in the Mill Creek front office or can be found online on the KSD Athletics Page. A scanned copy is also attached to this email, and 2) To be registered on-line. We have a paper copy if necessary, but it is best to register online because then your online registration will be done and you’ll never have to do it again.
Will I have to ever register my child again? The basic answer is ‘no’. Once you’ve registered your child online, it is done. With that said, before each sports season you will need to get online and click a few buttons giving permission for the next sports season. For example, if you register for 3rd season and then your child decides to participate in track, you will need to get online and click a few buttons to give permission for track. This process takes 2 minutes at the most.
How do we register online? The directions are located below. As a parent of KSD athletes, I can honestly tell you that it will take about 15 minutes to complete and it is simple once you make the account. Your child can likely make the account on his/her own and begin filling out the registration and then all you may need to do is check your child’s work and put the electronic signatures in.
What if we have questions? If the questions are about FamilyID, you may want to call them directly at 888-800-5583 x1 or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org . You are also welcome to contact me and I’ll do my best to help you! My contact information is: email@example.com or 253-373-7464.
I want to partner with you to help all kids be eligible for athletics at Mill Creek! Please let me know if you have questions or need help.
