Introducing the Online Athletics Registration Platform FamilyID

New system replaces the “Gray Card”

While no decisions have been made about interscholastic athletic programs for the fall of 2020, we do want to let you know that beginning this year, we will be using an online system known as FamilyID for registration for Niskayuna Central School District athletic programs.

The new FamilyID online system will be the way that students will register for athletics and provide the health documentation that is required for participation. This replaces the Gray Card that has been used in the past.

FamilyID is a secure registration platform. When you register through FamilyID, the system keeps track of your information in your FamilyID profile. You only need to enter your information only once for each family member for multiple uses and multiple programs.

While registration for interscholastic for the fall won’t take place until later this month, families can access the FamillyID system at the following link and create their account. Please scroll down for step-by-step instructions and technical support.
