Information for Register My Athlete

Mandatory Information for Participation In ANY School Sport This Year

Please be aware that Nebo School District requires that athletes who are trying out for any team sport have a current physical exam on file BEFORE trying out for the team. Exams are valid for one year. Parents will need to go to  www.registermyathlete.com to register their student and then upload the physical exam information as well as electronically sign other participation disclosures and information. No student will be allowed to try out for a sport without first completing the athletic registration at the Register My Athlete website.

For 1st Time Registrations:

  • Go to www.registermyathlete.com

  • Click “Login” in top right corner
