Interscholastic Athletic Programs
The district offers a full range of interscholastic sports. Programs for students in grades 7-12 normally require attendance at practice five or six days per week for 2 to 2.5 hours each practice. There is a selection process for teams that involve competition with other schools in our league and section.

Registering for teams and physicals
Our Athletic Department is now using FinalForms for registering students for athletic teams and sports physicals. If your child plans to participate in a sport this school year, you will need to create an account on FinalForms and register your child(ren) for a physical and the specific sport.
To log in to FinalForms to register your child for a sports physical, go to https://horseheads-ny.finalforms.com/. You will then create a parent/guardian account, confirm your registration through an email which will be sent to you once you create the account, then go back to the site to register each child. The site will then ask for the following required information:
- Student name
- Student email address - Please note: When setting up your account, the site asks for your student-athlete’s email address. This must be your child’s school email address.
- Basic medical history and health information
- Insurance company and policy number
- Doctor, dentist, hospital preference and contact information
- For instructions on how to set up your account and register your child(ren), click here.
When you complete the student registration, you will be able to see the open registrations. You can then select the sport or physical for registration.
Once you register your student(s), an email will be sent to your student(s) to sign required forms. This is why we require you to enter your student’s school email address.
If you have questions, please contact the Athletic Office at 607-739-5601, x4254 or email@example.com.

Students will receive information about team sign-ups in their physical education classes. Sign-ups begin 30 days prior to the start of the sports season. The district uses FinalForms for registration for sports and sports physicals.
Students entering Grade 7 who wish to participate in a fall sport will receive information in their sixth-grade elementary physical education class in May. New students who enter during the summer and wish to participate in sports should call the Athletic Office and schedule a summer physical with the school medical provider. This physical will meet the requirements for the entire school year.

Please note: If your child is transferring from another school and participated in interscholastic sports in his or her previous school, please complete this form and bring it to the school when registering your child.
We will hold school sports physicals in the summer each year. This enables all of our students interested in athletics to be prepared for each sport season for the full school year. A physical less than one year old at the beginning of the sport season is acceptable.
Student athletes who need a school sports physical should register online. For more information, click here.
