Athletic Clearance

All student-athletes will register with the FHSAA sponsored online paperless eligibility system, athleticclearance.com The physical form (EL2) will still need to be printed and signed by the physician, but instead of bringing it to the school, you will upload it to the secure site. In the event of an emergency, medical staff will have immediate access to vital information. The EL3 Consent Form, and insurance information will be submitted online utilizing digital signatures. Although easy to navigate, please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

All student-athletes must be cleared prior to participation, conditioning, or tryouts.

BEFORE you register, please gather the following items: 

  • An updated physical (EL2) or a copy, (if your current physical is less than a year old, you can obtain a copy from the athletic office) 
    • All physicals expire after one year 
    • Page 4 must be signed and dated by the physician, student-athlete, and parent/guardian
  • Insurance and physician information

  • 3 NFHS online courses with the student-athlete name
