•  Athletic Clearance for 2019-2020


    Every student wishing to participate in summer activities, tryoutspractices, or contests must be cleared by OHS Athletics. As a part of the clearance process, every athlete is required to have a yearly physical from a qualified physician. The physical must be completed ON OR AFTER MAY 21, 2019. Please follow the directions below to complete the online clearance process. 
     
     
    We do not accept paper copies of forms for clearance.

    Online Athletics Clearance Process 

    To begin the clearance process please visit the ATHLETICS CLEARANCE online site to get started.  You will have to sign up for each sport your athlete would like to participate in, in order for OHS to see if they have been cleared or not.  Please allow 24-48 hours after you’ve uploaded the physical and completed all of the online portions for the administration to fully clear your athlete.  If you have not received an email after that time confirming that your athlete has been cleared, it is probably due to incomplete forms or a failed upload of the physical.  Please follow the directions below – there is also a troubleshoot to walk you through going back after the account has been created to upload the physical form.

    ***PLEASE READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE STARTING***

    1. Print and bring the District Health Exam Form to your doctor to complete OR go to Med-Care Center  - see flyer Med Care Center Flyer.  Make sure to bring the District Health Exam form with you to your appointment.

    2. Get your athletes STUDENT ID # from them or your Homelink account. If you are an incoming freshman and do not have access to your Homelink account please enter "000000".

    3. Once your physical form is completed you can start the online process

    4. Please go through the OHS Athletics Parent Presentation

    5. Start the online process at Athletic Clearance – http://www.athleticclearance.com

    6. Register for an account – using the parent’s email address

    7. Once registered, find the Start Clearance Here tab – if you have more than one student-athlete attending OHS, you will need to add clearance for each. If your student-athlete plans on playing more than one sport, you will also need to sign up for each sport individually.

    8. Fill in all of the information on the student information page – NOTE:  you must have insurance or purchase the school insurance for your student-athlete to be cleared.

    9. UPLOAD your completed District Health Exam Form to the site toward the bottom of the student information page. Please make sure not to load it just into the library, but into the spot for the physical itself.

    10. Complete the medical history form

    11. Complete the Parent/Guardian Information page

    12. The athlete AND the parent will need to electronically “sign” the required sections.

    13. Submit the clearance

    14. You will receive a confirmation email when everything has been submitted and one when your student-athlete has been CLEARED by the school to participate.

    15. Once you have received the confirmation email that your child has been CLEARED by OHS Athletics (this may take a couple of days) have your athlete go to the Athletics Secretary Kathy Corbett in Student Services so your athlete can receive their TICKET TO TRY OUT that must be turned into their coach before they can participate.

    16. If your athlete would like to participate in more than one sport, each sport has to be signed up for individually. Simply click on the “Start Clearance Here!” and when you hit the “Student Information” page, select your athlete on the drop-down option. Most information is saved, including your physical, but some will require you to resubmit. Go through the medical history, parent/guardian info and signatures to be cleared for the additional sports.


    Physicals

    Physicals must be dated on or after May 21, 2019.  Please upload the completed form into the Athletic Clearance as part of the athletic clearance process.
