Please do not wait until the last minute.

2018 Winter Sports - Athletic Clearance Paperwork Collection

The first official day of Winter Sports will be October 29th, 2018.


Submit Winter Sports Athletic Clearance Paperwork to Mr. Peffer or Mr. Hashimoto in Office B after school if they are in there, by Monday, October 22nd, 2018. Please do not leave the paperwork under the door without giving it to Mr. Peffer or Mr. Hashimoto.


All paperwork will be due prior to the first day of tryouts


You can find the directions on how to complete this process by following the posting called "Step by Step: Athletic Clearance Packet."


It is not sufficient to turn paperwork into the coach. You will not be allowed to tryout or practice without cleared paperwork. Any paperwork turned in on the first official day of your sport is not be guaranteed to be cleared in time for practice that day.


Note to multi-sport athletes: If you are currently playing a sport, you will need to finish your season with that sport before trying out for the next sport. All you will need to do is turn in a new Signature Page to get cleared.



  • Online Athletic Clearance Information Sheet must be submitted first

  • You must have the doctor stamp, sign & date a CURRENT physical examination form from an M.D. or a D.O.

  • Incomplete paperwork WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED. All signatures on Signature page are required.

  • You will not be allowed to participate in any tryouts and/or practices until you have complete and cleared paperwork.


The Athletic Clearance Packet has now been split into 2 simple submissions: one online Google Form and one printed (See Signature Page and Physical Form below) and submitted.

The Physical Examination Form must still be completed by the physician as well as the signature of the athlete and parent/guardian agreeing to the American HS Athletic Code and consent to medical treatment in case of an injury must be submitted.  

However, the basic student, parent, insurance, and contact information can now be done online.


Athletic Clearance Information Sheet (Complete the form here & submit online only)


Read the Read Only Documents found on this page in the Athletics Locker.


Signature Page and Physical Forms

  1. Print and complete after reading all of the necessary Read-Only Documents

  2. Submit printed and completed documents to Athletic Directors during listed collection dates above


Declaration of Parent/Volunteer Driver of F.U.S.D. Students

If you have a parent or guardian that will possibly be transporting students to an American HS athletic contest this year, please fill out the form and attach the appropriate documents. You may turn it in along with your clearance paperwork.


NOTE: PHYSICAL EXAM FORMS POLICY Physicals are NOT SAVED from year to year, so you will need to submit evidence or copy of a physical each new school year. Athletic physicals are good for 1 calendar year from the date received. Before submitting, check to be sure you have the doctor’s STAMP, SIGNATURE & CURRENT EXAM DATE (must be for the current school year) on the form. The old Athletic Clearance Form is no longer available on the website and will not be accepted.

Physical Exam Forms Policy

Please be aware that we will not be saving physicals from year to year, so you will need to submit evidence or copy of a physical each new school year. We realize that some insurance carriers will not provide a physical exam each year, so the doctor's office will still need to sign off with a current date on the clearance form for you to turn in.
Also, when you submit them, please make sure that you have the doctor's signature and office stamp (MD or DO only - We will not accept a chiropractic, or DC, physical examination).
The signature form needs to be submitted with this form after you and your parent/guardian have signed it.
