Online Athletic Clearance FAQ

What is my Username?

Your username is the email address that you registered with.

How do I register for multiple Sports?

If you know you are going to play multiple sports when registering, it is best to add all sports on the first step where you also select the school year and school. If you are registering for additional sports after completing your initial clearance for the year, you will have to complete the process again. The good news is that if you select the student & parent/guardian info from the dropdown on those respective pages, the information will autofill.

Physicals

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

Your Files

This area is meant to store your files so they can be accessed later in the year or perhaps years following.

Why haven’t I been cleared?

Your school will review the information you have submitted before clearing you for participation. Once they review your clearance they will change the status. You will receive an email when you have been cleared for participation

My sport is not listed!

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

I was “Denied” clearance, now what?

You should have received an email with the reason for denial. Please update your clearance accordingly then contact your school’s athletic department and ask them to review your information again.

 

ECG/EKG Requirements

DP Coaches, Parents and Players

Parents need to sign up for their student-athletes for an ECG appointment.  This is required before they step foot on any playing surface for conditioning, tryouts and/or any other sporting events next school year.  This is in addition to completing an annual sport physical which can be done at our Partners in ED, Paramount Urgent Care on Turkey Lake Rd.

 

ECG Required for Athletic participation 2021-22

School Board members approved high schools to require electrocardiogram (ECG) screenings for students wishing to participate in athletic programs. Electrocardiogram (ECG) screenings help identify athletes who are at risk for sudden cardiac arrest which is the leading cause of death in athletics. ECGs will be required of all high school student-athletes prior to the start of their 2021-2022 FHSAA season. Through local medical providers and organizations, ECGs will be offered on high school campuses.
