Important Info

  • The CCS has a rich history of healthy competition and winning athletic programs. It is our belief that athletics is the front porch of education and an integral part of the development of young people. We believe that we must compete at the highest level while maintaining integrity, respect for our opponents, and good sportsmanship.  As we prepare for the start of team competitions again, it is important that students and parents read the following eligibility requirements carefully.



    Final Forms is the student-athlete registration system that is being utilized by Cumberland County Schools. It is an online enrollment platform that will streamline your child’s information and registration details all in one centralized system. All student-athletes must set up a new account for the 2021-2022 school year. Contact Ms. Johnson if you need any assistance accessing your account or have additional questions.

    New Accounts:

    1. Accounts may be registered at Final Forms
    2. Locate the parent icon and click NEW ACCOUNT.
    3. Type your NAME, DATE OF BIRTH, and EMAIL.
    4. Next, click REGISTER. (NOTE: You will receive an email within 2 minutes prompting you to confirm and complete your registration. If you do not receive an email, then check your spam folder.
