High Desert Middle School

Welcome to High Desert Athletics!

With the uncertainty of fall athletics and activities, the Family ID registration portal has been suspended and will not open at this time.

As we receive updated information from our governing bodies, information pertaining to fall sports and registration will be communicated from your athletic department and posted to this page.

We appreciate your patience.

Students will find a connection to athletic activities in which they can participate and find enjoyment during their middle and high school careers. We encourage parents to actively support their children in both their academic and athletic pursuits.



Parents of students wishing to participate in athletics register online using FamilyID. FamilyID is a secure, user-friendly online registration platform that streamlines the application process and allows parents to enter information once for multiple family members and athletic teams. Please be aware that you cannot sign up through your phone or tablet, you must be on a desktop or laptop to register through FamilyID.

To participate, athletes must complete the following:
Register through FamilyID
* Have a valid physical on file at the school
* Pay the $40 pay to play fee in the Main Office, cash, check or charge or pay online through Touchbase using your student's ID number.


Sports physicals are required for athletes competing in 6th grade athletics. Students who continue to participate in extracurricular sports after 6th grade must complete a physical exam in grades 7, 9, and 11 or if this is their first time participating with a Bend-La Pine Schools team. All physicals need to be completed prior to the sports season and not before May 1st of the summer before the current academic year. Please be sure to print out the OSAA School Sports Pre-Participation Examination form (osaa.org English/Spanish) and take it to your child's sports physical appointment. When you have completed the sports physical, please turn it in to the school.

Coaches, teachers and parents have a shared responsibility to help guide, nurture and support youth in developing the confidence, skills and attitudes that will enable hem to make good choices on and off the playing fields.
