New online sports registration now available

Registering students for athletics is now easier than ever. The Olympia School District has partnered with FamilyID, a secure online registration platform that is a user-friendly way to register students for middle and high school sports.


When a family registers through FamilyID, the system keeps track of the information in a FamilyID profile. This allows information to be entered one time for multiple seasons, multiple family members and multiple programs.

Athletic clearance forms in Spanish will continue to be available on this webpage.

To register for sports online, please visit the Sports Clearance Process webpage on each of the four middle school and two comprehensive high school websites. Direct links to those pages, including instructions for completing the online sports clearance process, are below:

Please fill out and submit these forms electronically (via email) to your school front office as paper registration is no longer accepted. For translation into other languages, not listed below, please contact your school front office:


Physical examinations are required for all interscholastic sports participants, including the activities of drill/dance/cheer squads. Verification of a physical examination must be submitted, at the time of clearance, on a form provided by the District and signed by a medical professional licensed to perform physical examinations. Certification for participation will be valid for a 13-month period from the date of the examination.

Transferring Students

In order to become eligible for varsity competition, transferring students must complete the following form and meet the all WIAA and OSD residence requirements.
