Student-Athlete Participation

To become a Wildcat Student-Athlete, all candidates must complete the online registration process through FamilyID. 

FamilyID replaces the paper Athletic Participation Packet, streamlining the process of sports registration in each season. Once you create an account in FamilyID, your information is saved securely in your FamilyID profile. You enter your information only once for each family member and return to your profile each time it is necessary to update your information, register for a sport/season, and/or give permission.

FamilyID Registration Process

CREATE an ACCOUNT

Click on the FamilyID button to the right, or go directly to www.nfawildcats.org/familyid.  
 
Scroll to the bottom of the page and click on Create Account.  Input your information and be sure to select I Agree to the FamilyID Terms of Service before clicking on Create Account again to finish.
 
You will receive an email with a link to activate your new account. (If you don’t see the email, check your E-mail filters, spam, or junk folders).  Click on the link in your activation E-mail, which will log you in to FamilyID.

REGISTRATION FOR PARTICIPATION IN A SPORT

Once you are in the Norwich Free Academy Winter 2019-2020 Athletics Registration phase, completely provide ALL the information required.  It is helpful to have the following information handy to allow for accurate completion of your online registration: Doctor information, Health Insurance Information, and Student ID#. 
 
When complete, be sure to hit the Submit button.
 
Please note:  FamilyID will store this information so that you have to submit it only once and future sports registrations will require you only to update information and provide permissions.
 
Once the online registration process through FamilyID is complete, and a current physical (paper copy), and Authorization for the Administration of Medication form (paper copy - if necessary) are on file with the NFA Medical Center, you will receive an APPROVAL EMAIL to participate, and the coach will be notified that you are clear to play.  

FamilyID Account Tech Support

If you need assistance with registration, contact FamilyID at support@familyid.com or 781-205-2800 x1.  Support is available 7 days per week and messages will be returned promptly.

NO STUDENT MAY PARTICIPATE IN TRYOUTS OR PRACTICES WITHOUT HAVING BEEN APPROVED. COACHES WILL HAVE A DIGITAL ROSTER OF APPROVED STUDENTS.

It is the responsibility of each student-athlete to review and familiarize themselves with the athletic policies and guidelines outlined in the Student-Athlete & Parent Handbook.

Parents who wish to transport their student-athlete home after away games must fill out and submit the Travel Release Form to the coach prior to the scheduled event.
