FamilyID is a secure registration platform that provides you with an easy, user-friendly way to register for our programs, and helps us to be more efficient and environmentally responsible. When you register through FamilyID, the system tracks your information in your FamilyID profile, so you enter your information only once for multiple uses, multiple family members and multiple programs.

This year registration will be done online through Family ID. All parents/guardians will need to register through the online web page. You must register your student within this time period for them to participate in Sports.
STEPS YOU NEED TO TAKE PRIOR TO REGISTRATION
PHYSICAL EXAMS: A physical exam must be current (within the past 13 months) and signed by the physician. If the student’s physical expires during the season, they will not be able to play until a new exam is received. Free physical exams will be available by our school physician Dr. Colmer. Please sign up with the nurse if you need an updated physical.
COMPLETE ONLINE CONCUSSION COURSE: State law requires that student/athletes, along with their parent(s)/guardian(s) complete an online concussion course. During registration you will be asked to sign off that you have completed this course: It is available at http://www.cdc.gov/headsup/youthsports/training/index.html
ATHLETIC USER FEES:
There is a user fee for all of our student athletes. The fee is $50. This year we are excited to announce that we are offering both online payments through UniPay directly on our website as well as payment by check. The link can be found on the left hand side under Online Payment Center on our Athletics page. https://unipaygold.unibank.com/Default.aspx?customerid=1388 .
If you choose not to pay online a check can be written to Dennis-Yarmouth Regional School District and turned into the Student Athlete’s Coach.
In hopes to never hold back any of our student athletes due to financial reasons it has been our practice that if your student athlete is receiving free/reduced lunch he/she will receive a waiver. We will need documentation for this waiver to be created. If there is an individual issue and you are unable to afford this user fee please email or call me at school so we can discuss each individual case. There is a $100 family user fee limit per school year per building.
We ask that you hold off on payment until your child has officially made a team. Since all of our winter sports are cut programs we want to make sure we don't have to refund any families that pay prior to making a team.

Mattacheese is committed to establishing an athletic program of excellence. We believe that a dynamic program of student athletics is vital to the educational, physical and social development of the student. Athletes develop the qualities of sportsmanship, leadership, teamwork, responsibility and competitiveness through their sport. The Mattacheese School Staff strives to nurture these qualities in students because we believe that the early incorporation of these qualities translates into success as adults. A strong sports program is a vital part of student life and provides a balance with academics, which the students need for a well-rounded middle school experience.
Student-athletes earn the privilege to participate by succeeding academically, and the resulting positive outcomes continue far beyond graduation. These programs exist to prepare young men and women for the next level of life, not the next level of athletics. Victories are achieved through athletics by developing successful athletes and teams, but more importantly, wins are achieved through the educational experience by developing successful and responsible students, leaders, and community members.
An unlimited participation policy will be used whenever possible. There are, however, factors which necessitate the size of the squad to be limited in order to maintain a high level of safety, coaching, playing time, and practice time. The following will be considered reasons to limit the size of the squad:
1. Nature of the sport
2. Access to facility space and time
3. An exceptionally large number of students trying out for a sport (e.g. 60 candidates for basketball)
4. Safety factors (e.g. ratio of students to coaches)
Whenever possible, cuts will not be made until after three tryout sessions. The approximate size of the squad will be announced at the first tryout.
Mattacheese offers 9 different middle school athletic participation sports including Fall: Volleyball (Varsity) Cross Country (co-ed), Soccer (boys and girls) (JV and Varsity), Field Hockey (Varsity), Winter: Basketball (boys and girls) (JV and Varsity), Spring: Fast-pitch Softball (girls JV and Varsity), Tennis (co-ed), Track and Field (co-ed) and Baseball(JV and Varsity).
