    SPORTS REGISTRATION DATES

    Fall 2024:

    • PRE-REGISTRATION: Between May 13th to June 13th, Alden Athletics will offer parents an early registration period to sign their 7th-12th graders up for fall sports. Click FamilyID on district homepage.
    • This pre-registration period will allow communication with parents/families regarding physical updates and other needed medical documentation before school breaks for the summer in late June. This will provide a communication channel for coaches, so they may contact your children on their team.

The process should take only a minute or so and is to comply with NYS requirements for a 30-day health history update prior to the season beginning.
