Spring Sports Registration NOW OPEN

To all Students in 9th-12th Grade Interested in Participating in a 2021 Spring Sport:

PIAA Spring Sports are scheduled to start March 8, 2021.

In an effort to provide our students, parents, and staff the safest possible method for conducting 2021 Spring Sport Registrations, the Northwestern Lehigh Athletic Department now hosts our Pre-Participation Athletic Forms and Registration online at PlanetHS.  This digital platform will allow our parents and students to complete and access registration forms via computer, tablet, or smart phone.  It is HIPAA, COPPA, and FERPA compliant.

For students who did NOT play a school-sponsored Fall or Winter Sport:

  • Parents AND Students must create SEPARATE accounts, using different emails and/or mobile phone numbers.
  • Students must be sure to create accounts using accurate information, including their Official Name that appears on their report card, date of birth, graduation year, and SCHOOL ATTENDING during the 2020-2021 School Year.
    • Students in 7th & 8th grade choose Middle School.
    • Students in 9th-12th grade choose High School.
  • Please take the time to review the "Getting Started" video, the attached "PlanetHS Parent & Student Guide", and the attached "Kick Off Letter" prior to registration as it will eliminate any mistakes.

Lastly, please note that LVHN will once again be providing complimentary sport physicals.  Typically, physicals are provided at schools but with the influence of COVID-19, they will instead be offering free physicals at many of their convenient locations. YOU DO NOT NEED A PHYSICAL IF YOU ALREADY PLAYED A SCHOOL SPONSORED FALL 2020 or WINTER 2020-2021 SPORT.
