Athletic Registration for Sports for the School Year 22-23

If you have not already registered your student athlete by completing the online FinalForms, they must be completed for the Fall season. Winter season registration due Nov 7:

  • Fall: Football, Volleyball, Girls Swim/Dive, Girls Soccer, Cross Country, Golf, and Slowpitch Softball
  • Winter: Boys Basketball, Girls Basketball, Gymnastics, Boys Swim & Dive, Boys Wrestling, and Girls Wrestling

The online registration process must be complete in order for Athletes to be cleared in time to participate. Registration is also open for ALL Sports during the 2022-2023 school year. Ballard HS uses FinalForms, an online system, that boosts compliance and safety and allows you to complete and sign forms from your computer, tablet, or mobile device. Data is also saved, so you will never need to enter the same information twice and pre-populates information wherever possible, for each of your students.

You may login any time to update information including emergency medical contacts and information. You will be required to sign your forms once per year and any time you make an update.

We ask that all parent/guardians of athletes use FinalForms

Already have an account? Log in to FinalForms

Parents follow the prompts to create your account, manage your students and sign your forms. A parent must create their FinalForms account first, before your student is able to create their account. Select the Parent Playbook to get started in FinalForms.
