Athletic & Activity Clearance Procedure

In order to participate in extracurricular sports and activities, students must have the required paperwork on file.

Procedure For Getting "Cleared" (complete the steps in order!):

  1. Print out and complete all required forms (see details below). Be sure that parent/guardian and student sign each form as needed.
  2. For all sports (including Dance teams), take Physical form to the Health Office and get "Yellow Card" signed off there
  3. Take all remaining forms and your Participation Donation (see details below) to the Student Store
  4. Give Anti-Hazing Pledge form to your coach or activity advisor

Required Forms For All Sports and Activities:

  • The YELLOW CARD (aka Clearance Form) completed and signed by parent/guardian. The card can be picked up in the Athletic Office or Student Store or printed from page 16 of the Athletic/Activity Packet. A new card is required for every sport or activity the student participates in.

Participation Donation Information

Click here to view the Participation Donation for each sport and activity.
 
The suggested Participation Donations for the 2016-2017 school year will, as always, be calculated based on the number of students participating in the activities, the events scheduled for the activities, and the cost of officiating, competition fees and transportation. Each activity will have a different suggested amount based on these variables. Participation donations do NOT  include the coaching or advisor stipends. While the suggested participation donation is not mandatory, it is needed in order to keep all activities and clubs viable.
 
As always, the student's involvement in any given activity will not be curtailed or increased based upon any donation. The donation, whether made or not made, will be completely confidential, known only by the Student Store, and will never be shared with the coaching staff or activities advisors. The coaches/advisors will only be made aware of the bottom line so that he/she can make prudent financial decisions regarding his/her program(s).
