Fall Sports Registration & Tryout Info


All student-athletes must be registered with an updated sports physical before they can participate in try-outs or practice.  No exceptions will be made.


  1. Online Registration: Complete online registration at  Please create an account if you are new to 8to18 - this is a one time account setup per family.  All others should use their same login – DO NOT CREATE ANOTHER ACCOUNT.  Creating multiple accounts for the same student-athlete could create issues when registering for future seasons.  Participation fees will be requested at time of registration for non-cut sports only.  Participation fees for cut sports are paid online after rosters are confirmed – an email will go out indicating which roster your child is on and will direct you to payment. 
  2. Confirmation: Review and print registration confirmation email received once registration is complete.  If you do not receive a confirmation email, registration may not have been completed.
  3. Sports Physical:  Sports physicals must be dated on or after October 15, 2020 in order to get thru the entire Fall season.  For incoming freshman, the mandatory State of Illinois Certificate of Child Health Examination form required for entry into NCHS will be accepted in lieu of a sports physical (if you do not have one).  IHSA sports physicals can be found on our athletic page under resources, however, your physician’s office will typically have these also.  Once a season begins, all athletes must have a valid physical on file during their entire season.  Athletes will not be able to participate in tryouts or practice with an expired physical – NO EXCEPTIONS. 

*To see if the physical on file is up-to-date, go to your 8to18 account, select athlete, physical date will show under student info.

Sports physicals should be dropped off at the athletic office between the hours of 8am-2:00pm.  If the office is closed, they can also be dropped off at the main office (same hours apply). All fall sports physicals should be received no later than August 6.

Student-athletes should arrive 30 minutes before try-outs/first practice.  The coaches will be doing check-ins. If the student-athlete is not on the roster, they will need to go to the Athletic office to see what needs to be completed.  Once you are cleared by the Athletic office, a clearance pass will be given to present to the coach for participation.  Sorry, no exceptions will made.
