Attention Spring Sports Athletes -
The Voorhees Athletic Department is testing a new online process for completing sports paperwork. This process will replace the need for a paper copy of the parent permission form, random drug testing form, steroid form and concussion form. This online program through FamilyID will ultimately be easier to use and more efficient for both you and the school district than our current paper process. When you register through FamilyID, you enter your information once for multiple uses, multiple children and multiple programs. (more…)
