    • If you are in need of a physical, you can receive it during this clearance opportunity
    • If you have a physical on file, you must still obtain COVID clearance (Document 4) to participate in a sport
    • All student athletes must obtain a COVID clearance (Document 4) before being allowed to practice, and the Medical Director will be granting that clearance in an effort to avoid any of our student-athletes from having to make an appointment with their own Personal Health Care Provider

    • All student-athletes who do not attend Wednesday, February 17, 2021’s Clearance Opportunity, will need to obtain COVID clearance from their Personal Health Care Provider which may cause a delay in when you may start practicing.
  • All cleared Varsity student-athletes may begin practicing after they receive clearance on Wednesday, February 17th, however the coaches will inform you as to when practices will start.
  • All JV and Modified practices will not begin until at least Saturday, February 27, 2021.  Information regarding the specifics of the JV and Modified programs will be forthcoming.
