    Effective July 1,2024, the New Jersey Department of Education has mandated changes for eligibility to participate in athletics during the 2024-2025 school year. Please read all the instructions below carefully:

     Step 1: Registration  

    Registration is completed via the Genesis Parent Portal under the forms tab and look for the applicable season and year’s Heritage Middle School Athletics Sign-up 

    (i.e. “Fall 2024 Heritage Middle School/YMCA Athletics Sign Up”).   Registration will be open by the last week of July.   

    Step 2: Medical Requirements

    Students are required to complete the Preparticipation Physical Evaluation Form ONE TIME per calendar year. It is valid for 365 days.  This form must be completed and only the second page of this packet, the medical eligibility form, is returned to Heritage Middle School nurse. For fall sports, the forms are due by August 15th and can be dropped off at the main office Monday- Wednesday from 9-2 or mailed to 20 Foxcroft Drive.  Please keep a copy for your records. Please do not email forms.

    For every new athletics season during the school year (Fall, Winter and Spring) the student's physician is required to complete and retain the Athletic Health History Form .  Only the third page of this packet, the medical eligibility form, will be returned to Heritage Middle School nurse. The first two pages remain on file at the physician’s office.

    Heritage Middle School sports program is funded by the West Essex YMCA and there are participation fees involved for each season.  When tryouts have been completed, there will be a link sent with instructions how to submit payment directly online to the West Essex YMCA.

    If you have any questions, please contact the Athletics Office at  973-535-8000 ext. 8862 or email Mrs. Mullin @ nmulllin@livingston.org

    The athletic office will be closed for the summer and will reopen prior to school starting in September.
