New Online Registration System for Riverhead Athletes

New Online Registration System for Riverhead Athletes
To streamline the registration process for all Riverhead Central School District middle and high school athletes, the athletic department is inaugurating a new online registration system.

The new registration system, which will be available for the Winter 2017/18 sporting season, will not only make it easier for the school district to track information, but for parents and students.  Once an athlete’s required information is inputted into the system via any computer or smartphone, written documents will no longer be required. The only documentation students must provide to the district are physicals for the nurse’s approval.

The new system will also include a phone app that can be downloaded to allow parents to easily manage their child’s athletic information.

Official registration through the new system will commence on October 10 for the winter season, December 22 for the late winter middle school sports season and February 2, 2018 for the spring 2018 season.     

To access the new system, visit, click the parents’ tab and follow the directions to register for an account. For more detailed instructions, visit Riverhead Central School District’s athletic page at
