    Athletic Participation Information

    Athletic Participation 2021-2022  

    In order to tryout for a sport at West Millbrook Middle School this year, parents must register and create an account through our new online registration system, DragonFly Max, which is now up and running! 

    Click here to receive directions on how to create your DragonFly Max account. 

     

    All 7th and 8th grade students must have a completed registration prior to trying out for a sport. (WCPSS does not allow 6th graders to try out, but managers may be asked to submit a registration) 

     

    Registration will only need to be completed once and athletic participation will only be granted if all eligibility requirements (Academic & Attendance) have been met and an up-to-date physical exam has been uploaded for each student-athlete participating.  A physical exam is valid for 395 days from the date of the exam. If your physical exam expires during the 2021-2022 school year, a new physical exam must be uploaded before expiration to continue to participate. 

     

    Parents, when registering, please create the account under your name. Once you have an account, you will be able to add your child(ren). Once you have added in your child(ren), you will see a "To-Do" list icon which will take you to all of the required forms. Your DragonFly Max account will also follow you to any WCPSS school you attend, and save all of your forms!
