Eagles News · 1st Day of Fall Sports and Online Registration update

Good evening SVHS Community,

We are less than three short days away from the first day of Fall Sports. A few very important reminders, notes and helpful hints.

  • Thanks to those who reached out regarding our coaching vacancies and special thanks to the Germantown Pulse for putting out the article. 
    • We believe we have hired a V. Field Hockey Coach and a JV Cheer coach. An official announcement will come once they complete all the appropriate criteria required to begin coaching. 
    • We are still in need of a JV Boys Soccer Coach and a JV Field hockey coach
  • Due to the late hiring of these coaches- FIELD HOCKEY TRYOUTS WILL BE DELAYED. We will not begin on Wednesday, August 8th. It is our hope that we will begin soon after, but please wait word via eaglesbulletin, our website, facebook and Twitter.  
    • Cheer and Soccer will start on Wednesday per the attached schedule-for both V and JV- with our Varsity Coaches taking on both until the coaching has been finalized. 
  • Note the “Community-Welcome Letter” under more- files and links on our home page. There is important tryout information as well as our tryout and practice dates and times for all of our Fall sports except Team Handball, which will begin on September 11th


The Seneca Valley Athletic Department is aware that a few of your are having complications registering your student athlete via My mcps parental portal (link- https://portal.mcpsmd.org/public/?login ).

It is important to note a few items:

  • For future reference the registration window opens several weeks prior to the first day (July 16th) and will do so again for Winter sports.  As with anything done online, it is important to do things in advance to avoid any last minute complication.
  • You must first register via the Mymcps parental portal (https://portal.mcpsmd.org/public/?login). This is done by creating a username (your email) and then YOU create the password. 
    • If you have registered in the past- and have forgotten your password- contact Athletic Director Jesse Irvin, via email and he can assist you
  • After creating your account- you then will link your student athletes – using their access id and access password. (Sent in the mail in late June) (If you have misplaced it- then the parent/guardian must email Athletic Director Jesse Irvin for the codes.  Student athletes ARE NOT ALLOWED to receive this information.
    • Please note- this is NOT their student id and school password
    • After linking your student athlete- you will log back in and click on their name in the upper left hand corner.
    • You will then scroll down and click on Fall Athletic Registration.
  • ***IMPORTANT NOTE- website under more-files and links on our homepage – “How to register online…” for important and specific directions and hints on how to register your student athletes
  • When completing your registration- please make sure to include an updated physical clearance page -signed by a doctor.  You can upload this by scanning it or by taking a picture and uploading it.  
    • Student athletes will not be cleared to tryout unless they have an updated physical.  (file available under more- files and links on our webpage)
      • NOTE- If the physical is brought in on the day of tryouts- it will delay their ability to start practice until it is cleared through the athletic directors office. 
        • please send it via email or drop it off prior to Wednesday


The Athletic office will be open from 4:30 pm tomorrow until 9 pm and then all day on Tuesday from 8 am until 8 pm to assist anyone who needs assistance registering. Chrome books will be made available to those who need them.
The Athletic Department is looking forward to getting started and cannot wait to see all of our student athletes on Wednesday. Please make sure to visit our website www.svhsathletics.org for specific coaching information- contact info as well as what you will need for tryouts.
