Online Athletic Clearance FAQ

  • What is my Username?

Your username is the email address that you registered with.

  • Multiple Sports

Once you complete a clearance for one sport and arrive at the Confirmation Message, you will have the option to check off additional sports/activities for the current school year. If you decide to participate in an additional sport/activity later on, you can access the multiple sport check boxes by clicking on “Print” under the Confirmation Message of your original Clearance for that specific year.

  • Physicals

The physical form your school uses can be downloaded on Physicals page. Most schools will accept the physical online (done by uploading the completed form on Step #1) as well as turning in a hard copy to the athletic department.

  • Document Library

This area is meant to store your files so they can be accessed later in the year or perhaps years following. You can either upload your files to the Document Library then apply them to your Clearance on the Physical page OR you can choose/browse for the file on the Physical page and the file will save to the Document Library for future use.

  • Why haven’t I been cleared?

Your school will review the information you have submitted and Clear or Deny your student for participation. You will receive an email when the student is cleared.

  • My sport is not listed!

Please contact your school’s athletic department and ask your sport to be activated.
