Greetings from the Columbia Wildcat Athletic Department!

In an attempt to help our Wildcat families to expedite the registration process for athletics, we'd like to announce Family ID. This allows our Wildcat families to sign up for TCS sports electronically and skip the in-person pre-season meeting!

You can access FamilyID at or through our athletic department site found on the district and school webpages.

Student participants are required to have a physical on file and complete all registration pieces including the reading, acknowledgement, and consent of policy pertaining to athletics as well as viewing eligibility and informational videos before participating in CHS/CMS Athletics.

If you are unable to register electronically, we can obtain hard copies for you at any of our sports pre-season meetings. The first in-person athletics pre-season meeting will be held on Tuesday, August 3rd or Thursday, August 5th at 6pm on both nights. If you are unable to complete your registration online through FamilyID, your attendance at one of these meetings is required for Columbia High School and Columbia Middle School.
