Lakeshore Public Schools is pleased to be able to exclusively offer online registration for our athletic programs beginning with the 2019-20 school year.  Online registration will be the only way that an athlete will be able to register for and tryout/participate on an athletic team for Lakeshore Public Schools.  If you do not have access to a computer and need to register your son/daughter there are computers available at the High School for your use in the registration process.  Please come by the Lakeshore HS office between the hours of 7:30am – Noon (Tuesday – Thursday) during the summer break or between 7:30am-3pm (Monday – Friday) during the school year (Last week of August through Middle of June each year).  The only HARD COPY item that is to be returned to the HS office is the MHSAA Physical Card that must be on file in the office prior to the first day of tryouts/practice.  Copies of the MHSAA Physical Card are available within the registration process for download or are available in the HS and MS Offices.
