Athletic Clearance Instructions

Newbury Park High School Sports Clearance Process

(Updated for 2020-2021 School Year)

The clearance process MUST be completed BEFORE your child will be able to tryout, practice, or play.  Coaches should not allow athletes to participate in tryouts or practices until cleared. Any student who wishes to participate in any sport must follow these steps: 

Get a Physical or Sports Clearance from any doctor. You must use the CVUSD official form below. 

    • Click HERE or go to the Athletics Office to pick up the form.
    • Parents must fill out the top of the form completely and sign in the middle section.
    • The Physical/Sports Clearance Form must be SIGNED and DATED by a medical practitioner.
    • Physicals/Sports Clearances are valid for 12 months from the date of the exam.

**IMPORTANT—Students must have an online profile for EACH SPORT they wish to participate in during the school year. Clearance for one sport does not mean the student is cleared for every sport. Just make sure to check the boxes for each sport the student is interested in. One account can be used to create clearances for multiple students, sports, and school years so be sure to remember your login information. If you need further assistance, view the tutorial video in the top right corner of the home page titled “Need Help?”

Please note:  Sports Clearances should NOT replace your child’s yearly complete physical from their primary care doctor.  Please continue to see your child’s pediatrician who checks growth, pubertal development, school progress, mental health, drug screening, required vaccinations, etc.
