NLPS Athletics Registration

  • New London Public Schools Student-Athletes and Families,

    I hope this email finds you and yours healthy and in good spirits. I apologize for the delay in getting the 2020-2021 athletic participation information out to you. Since last March it has been the hope of the New London Athletic Department that sports will return safely to the playing arenas. The current situation is extremely fluid and changes to our plan can and will be made daily as necessary. Although our hope is to get back to normal with no restrictions to our sports activities, it is just not feasible at this time. We ask for your support and flexibility as we navigate these uncertain times for the well-being of our student-athletes, coaches and staff. Our department is committed to do all we can to ensure the safety of our student-athletes and school community. Although sports at the youth and professional levels are occurring around the country, please understand that New London Athletics and the CIAC are education-based extracurricular programs and that our priority is the safety of all students.

    At the bottom is a link to a form that all prospective student-athletes and their families must fill out and submit in order to participate in athletics in our district. There are numerous questions to answer and policies to read. Please fill this out carefully.  You will notice that you will be able to submit one form for each sport, each season.  The starting dates for sports have changed since this form was made. Please see the updated CIAC start and play dates below. Cheer will also begin on September 11.


    Please see the Spring 2021 sports plan here:

    You can find an email list of our coaches here

    I will be sending out additional information as we get closer to the start of school.

    Lastly, each prospective student-athlete is required to have an updated physical in order to participate. A physical is “good” for up to fifteen months. Please email me a copy of the physical.  I will forward to the school nurse for her to keep on file. If a current physical is already on file, please let me know that and I will check on it.

    Please let me know of any questions or problems.

    Whaler Pride!
