Athletics Physicals

Attention Parents and Student Athletes:

We are excited to announce that we are moving our athletic physical clearance process digitally for the 2020-21 athletic calendar season. Please be sure to read the following instructions on completing this process. If you have questions, please feel free to reach out to Head Athletic Trainer, Patrick Mirocha at [email protected]. A pdf of the form is here if you prefer to print or preview - 2020-2021 OCPS Physical packet Updated 06082020 COVID-19 (fillable).pdf

IMPORTANT: Due to circumstances beyond our control, there has been a vendor switch for online physicals.

If you completed a digital-physical between January and March of the year (2020), you will have to re-sign all forms and create a new account on this website Athletic Clearance. Your child’s sports physical is still valid and will NOT have to be redone.


Quick steps for parents/students using the online athletic physical clearance process:

  1. Visit Athletic Clearance and choose your state
  2. Watch a quick tutorial video.
  3. Register. PARENTS register with a valid email username and password. You will be asked to type in a code to verify you are human. If this step is skipped your account will not activate. (If this step is skipped, please contact us to activate your account)
  4. Login using the email address that you registered with.
  5. Select “New Clearance” to start the process.
  6. Choose the School Year in which the student plans to participate. Example: Football in Sept 2020 would be the 2020-2021 School Year. Choose the School at which the student attends and will compete, then choose a sport.
  7. Complete all required fields for Student Information, Educational History, Medical History, and Signature Forms. (If you have gone through the process before, you will select the Student and Parent/Guardian from the dropdown menu on those pages)
  8. Once you reach the Confirmation Message you have completed the process. You will need to print out and sign the confirmation message along with your child. It is imperative that you turn in this form to the Athletic Training staff.
  9. If you would like to register for additional sports/activities you may check off those sports below the Confirmation Message. Electronic signatures will be applied to the additional sports/activities.
  10. All of this data will be electronically filed with your school’s athletic department for review. When the student has been cleared for participation, an email notification will be sent.

Your username is the email address that you registered with.

Multiple Sports

Once you complete a clearance for one sport and arrive at the Confirmation Message, you will have the option to check off additional sports/activities for the current school year. PLEASE ONLY CHECK OFF SPORTS YOU KNOW YOU WILL PLAY. Don’t just check ones because you are interested in those. If you decide to participate in an additional sport/activity, later on, you can access the multiple sport check boxes by clicking on “Print” under the Confirmation Message of your original Clearance for that specific year.


The physical form your school uses can be downloaded on the Physicals page. Most schools will accept the physical online (done by uploading the completed form on Step #2) as well as turning in a hard copy to the athletic department. Statuses for this page are as follows:

Completed: All upload areas are filled (may not be required)

In Progress: At least one upload area is filled

Incomplete: No files have been uploaded


Document Library

This area is meant to store your files so they can be accessed later in the year or perhaps years following. You can either upload your files to the Document Library then apply them to your Clearance on the Physical page OR you can choose/browse for the file on the Physical page and the file will save to the Document Library for future use.

Why haven’t I been cleared?

Your school will review the information you have submitted and Clear or Deny your student for participation. You will receive an email when the student is cleared.

My sport is not listed!

Please contact your school’s athletic department and ask for your sport to be activated.
