In an effort to streamline and simplify the process of registration for students wanting to try-out for teams at both high schools, CCPS has signed on with Form ReLeaf, a paperless registration system. All paperwork will be completed and submitted online.
The online process:
- Go to CRHS Athletics or NCHS Athletics to register.
The user may need to Sign Up to open an account.
Once all the information has been completed, the user will receive an email verifying that registration is complete. If an email is not received, registration has not been completed.
- Once all the information is completed on Form ReLeaf, students must take a physical form, found at the top of the registration page, to their doctor to fill out. Once the doctor completes the form, it must be given to the Athletic Director. (Physicals are good for one year from the date the doctor signs it.)
Once Steps 1 & 2 are complete, the student is eligible to try-out for an athletic team.
Students must have a valid physical exam on file with the school. A physical is valid for one calendar year from the date it is signed by the physician. Additionally, students must provide proof of insurance. If they do not have private insurance, they can apply for the School Health Insurance Plan.
Physical exam forms may be found on the high school's online registration site:

Return to Play
Caroline County Public Schools is committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for student-athletes, coaches, staff, officials, spectators, and others who engage in high school sports. CCPS has created a Return to Play committee to develop plans to re-engage our student-athletes utilizing resources from the CDC, Maryland Department of Health, the Maryland Public Secondary Schools Athletic Association (MPSSAA), as well as other reputable sources. The committee will continue to refine its plans based on available guidance from the above-mentioned entities.
handbooks & Policies
Student-Athlete Handbook & Policies
The CCPS Student-Athlete Handbook provides information about all aspects of student athletics. It also includes important information for students with suspected head injuries and/or concussions. All student-athletes and their parents must acknowledge receipt of the handbook each year.
Additionally, CCPS must adhere to the policies and regulations outlined by the Maryland Public Secondary Schools Athletic Association (MPSSAA).
All high school athletic schedules can be found online at Digital Sports. Simply type in the name of your school and find all schedules for the year. This is the official scheduling system of the Bayside Athletic Conference, so all schedules will remain current and reflect any cancellations or reschedules.
