Our communities rally around our student populations. When the student athlete succeeds, the supporting fans feel that success. Yet, programs still run into unnecessary speed bumps. Student athlete participation can reach a stand still when the programs cannot guarantee the athlete has health clearance, as well as parental clearance.
Athletes who wish to participate in sports must be cleared before they tryout or begin practices. This year, our partnering schools will be using an online service to do this.
Parents should visit http://SCHOOL_NAME.8to18.com to have their child cleared for sports. Unlike other years, there is no paperwork to fill out or sign as all of this will be done electronically online. The only paperwork that schools will collect is the IHSA physical form. This is available on the registration websites of most schools, or at the front desk of the school. Freshmen can use their incoming physical for sports. Physicals must be renewed every 13 months to be valid.
Again, Parents should visit the athletic clearance website at http://SCHOOL_NAME.8to18.com to have your child cleared for sports.
