Athletic Clearance

WHAT YOU NEED TO PLAY A SPORT IN THE PIL

- Preseason Grade Check (Winter Season)
Students must turn in a preseason grade check form or a printed Synergy Report Card at the beginning of Winter Season ONLY. This must be dated within 2 weeks of the start of the season. Turn into athletics office with blue card. If you are turning in a printed copy of your Synergy Report Card you must have a grade showing in every class (no N/A). If you have classes with N/A listed you must obtain a signature from that teacher with your current grade.

-Physical / Physical Update Form    
A student participating in athletics must have a physical examination by a medical practitioner (valid for 2 years). Students who have a valid physical on file need to complete an Update Form on the years between sports physicals. If athletes have turned in a Physical or Update form for a fall sport, they will not need to do so again for the Winter or Spring seasons.  Links to these forms can be found below. The Cleveland Health Center offers sports physicals.
