Greetings Sea Kings!
This is our second year of the-online clearance process for athletic and extracurricular programs. The packet will be completed online, but students will still need to turn in the hard copy of their physical, the confirmation page, and any physical checks (you can donate online as well, after 8/2/21) to the health office and student store.
We rely on our Participation Donation program to pay for our teams’ transportation, officials, tournament/meet entries, and additional equipment. It is a vital part of our athletic programs and without sufficient funding, we support all of our programs at their highest levels. All donations are tax deductible and our school taxpayer id is #95-6006594. Donations are not refundable.
Clearing for a sport does not mean that you have made the team. It does give you the ability to participate in any voluntary training sessions this school year.
