All athletes wanting to participate in CIF sponsor sports, club sports, dance and cheer team
To begin the clearance process please visit www.athleticclearance.com
to get started. You will have to sign up for each sport your athlete would like to participate in, in order for the coach to see if they have been cleared or not. While school is in session, please allow 24-48 business hours after you’ve uploaded the signed, stamped and dated physical, proof of insurance (must have the athlete's name on it) and completed all of the on-line portion for the administration to fully clear your athlete. All physicals must be dated on or after May 18, 2020
in order to be valid for this year's clearance. 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/proof of insurance. 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.
- Academic: 2.0 GPA and passing 3 of 4 classes
- Citizenship: Clear all fees, fines and book returns; meet training rules and expectations; abide by the handbook guidelines
- Residential: Transfer students must complete additional forms after meeting with the Athletic Director to get cleared by both RHS Athletics and CIFSJS before they will be allowed to compete
***PLEASE READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE STARTING***

7. Upload your Dated Physical form including a Dr. Stamp towards the bottom on the physical page.

13. 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.
Is your physical or Proof of Insurance not downloading? Please follow these steps prior to emailing:
1. Log-in to athleticclearance.com

Please note that if your student plays multiple sports, you will be required to register for those sports as well. All sports will be open to sign-up during the summer. If you do not sign-up for a particular sport, the student-athlete will not show up on the cleared roster for the coach and will not be allowed to participate.
You will receive notice that your clearance has been received within 24-48 business hours. If you have not, it is because you have not completed the forms or the physical/proof of insurance was not properly downloaded.
