What is my Username?
Your username is the email address that you registered with. Normally the student’s email.
If you know or think your student will play multiple sports, it is best to add all sports on the first step. 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 and parent info from the dropdown on those respective pages, the information will autofill.
The physical form can be downloaded on Medical History page. Please note that physicals expire after 365 days from the date it is signed by the physician. Also, the FHSAA EL2 Physical is the only form accepted. The form MUST BE SIGNED by the PARENT, STUDENT, all yes answers explained and Florida PHYSICIAN prior to uploading the file.
This area is meant to store your files so you can access them later in the year or perhaps years following. Why haven’t I been cleared? The Athletics Department will review the information you have submitted and Clear or Deny your student for participation within a reasonable time frame. You will receive an email when the student is cleared to participate.
My student was denied, now what?
You should have received an email with the reason for denial. Please update your Clearance record accordingly, then send an email to the Athletic Director or Athletic Trainer and ask to review the information. Of course, if you have any challenges with this process, please email the Athletic Department for assistance.
