FCPS Required Registration Link

November 4, 2020




Dear Herndon Community,


Beginning Monday, November 2, FCPS activities and athletic programs will transition to a new online student registration system.  This new system offers a host of benefits for schools and community members including:

  • One stop shop for registering your student for athletic programs and many common activities occurring throughout the school year
  • Electronic submission of the emergency care card and weight room waiver- only have to fill these out once!
  • A new home for the state-mandated concussion education program

Each family will create an account and from this account, can register their student(s) for various activity and athletic opportunities.  While registering does not guarantee a spot on the team, this information will help to ensure your student is ready to go on the first day of tryouts.  Students can be registered for one or more activities throughout the year and families can sign in as needed to update information.


Please note the following:

  • You will still need to submit a valid VHSL Pre-participation Exam Form (physical) directly to Herndon’s Athletic Trainer, Lisa Petruzzi at  prior to your student’s participation; all other requirements will be completed through this registration process.
  • Families who have already submitted their concussion education verification form will be asked to verify completion again as part of the registration process.  We do apologize for any inconvenience- please bear with us as we make this change

The new registration site is available here:


Should you have questions regarding the registration process, please contact DSA / Jonathan Frohm at

2020-2021 Herndon Football Information Update

Dear Hornets,


For those who do not know me. I am coach Coghlan and I am the head football coach at Herndon High School.  This will be my 3rd year as the head football coach and my 15 year coaching football at HHS.   I hope everyone is excited to begin the 2021 school year.  Even though the school year is starting differently from past years the focus on academics should be everyone’s priority.  Starting a school year virtually has never been done before so please remain patient with the process. If you come across obstacles during this virtual learning period, then please reach out to your teachers. Never be afraid to ask a question!


Football Update-

Starting on September 22ND, we will begin in person football conditioning sessions on the stadium field. This give everyone 3 weeks to email their forms to head athletic trainer.   Football conditioning days will be held on Tuesday and Thursday’s. Attached is a conditioning manual to help you get acclimated to our stretches, agility drills, and conditioning.  Our program will eventually move to into phase 2/3 (limited equipment) beginning in October.  


Every student will be required to email a completed 2020 Physical form and Concussion education page to our athletic trainer.   We are allowed to have a maximum number of 50 people at each session and this includes coaches.  The first 50 students athletes to email their physical forms will be permitted  workout on the 9/22/2020.  If we have more than 50 forms turned into Ms. Petruzzi then I will schedule a second workout session, TBT.
