Athlete Registration (PlanetHS)

  • Registration for both students and parents is now available at PlanetHS.com

    The Athletic Department at Jim Thorpe Area School District hosts their Pre-Participation Athletic Forms online with PlanetHS. This digital platform will allow you, and your student(s), to complete and access athletic forms via computer, tablet, or mobile phone. It is HIPAA, COPPA and FERPA compliant. A link to the privacy policy is located at the bottom of the Sign in page at www.planeths.com.

    PLEASE NOTE: Students should sign up first then the parent. Athletes will have their own account and parents will have their own separate account. Student accounts will be linked with parent accounts. Parents will receive a link from their son/daughter after they sign up. Parents with multiple athletes only need one account.
