Registering Students for Athletic Participation

Parents will register their students for participation in athletics this year online. You will need to go to the Register My Athlete website (registermyathlete.com) and create an account. You can then register your student online. If you have questions about this process you can contact the coach or an administrator at Payson High school. There is also a resource on the UHSAA website (http://www.uhsaa.org/train-4.html) that provides instructions on this process. All students participating in athletics are required to get a physical. The forms can either be printed from the Register My Athlete website or you can get a form in the front office at Payson High School. Once the physical is complete the form needs to be turned in to the athletic director at Payson High School.
