Athletic Registration - Online

  • New Online Sports Registration Program
    The Dobbs Ferry School District  launched the new online sport registration FamilyId for the Winter and Spring Seasons with great success. It eased the registration process and replaced the hard-copy forms previously required for a student to participate on an athletic team. To access FamilyID, click the following link: 

    FamilyID is a secure registration platform that provides families with an easy, user-friendly way to register for our athletic programs, and helps us be more administratively efficient and environmentally responsible. When you register through FamilyID, the system keeps track of your information in your FamilyID profile. You will enter your demographics once and can make updates as needed.

    Please make sure your child’s registration is complete by the deadlines listed below.  Students will NOT be able to tryout until registration is complete and cleared by the school’s medical director. 

      A physical exam is required for medical clearance and must have been completed within 12 months prior to the start of any sport season. Please upload the completed physical through FamilyID. (Note: It is important for parents to upload their child’s health appraisal as we do not have access to do so from here.)

    The Dobbs Ferry School District offers a comprehensive athletic program committed to the development of physical fitness, personal growth, safety and achievement of excellence for our students. Any academically eligible student in grades 7-12 may try out for an interscholastic team. There are three sports seasons throughout the year (fall, winter and spring), and a student may participate in one sport per season. The below requirements must be met before participating. (All forms can be found under the “Athletics” tab on the Dobbs Ferry website or under the “Links” tab in FamilyID.)

    Registration will be OPEN for Fall 2017 Sports on the following dates:

    • Varsity/Junior Varsity: July 24th - August 14th
