Summer 2018 Tryouts/Practice

Attention all students interested in playing sports in 2018-19:

  • 2018-19 Incoming 9th graders or transfers! If you are interested in sports at FTHS, please complete the interest form at the link below so we can contact you about summer meeting, tryouts, and programs. Check each team’s page for information on their summer program.

  • ATHLETE CLEARANCE: Prior to trying out for or practicing with a team, students must submit Athletic Clearance documentation, which includes a sports physical clearance dated within the past 12 months. Begin the online clearance process at https://home.registermyathlete.com/org/CA/00509/ and use the instructions found here. If you are unable to complete clearance online, please contact the school office for a packet at 289-0023 x1016.

  • SPORTS PHYSICALS: As part of the athletic clearance process, students must submit a Preparticipation Physical Evaluation Clearance, dated within the past year. If your physical will “expire” during the season of sport, you will need a new physical before that season begins. Sports physicals are valid for one year, therefore we highly recommend scheduling sports physicals annually in May/June, so you will be cleared for the summer and entire schoolyear. See below for sports physical opportunities that support the Foothill Athletics Program:

    • Sports Physicals opportunity: Monday, June 18, 2018, $25 cash/credit/check payable to “Foothill Athletics Boosters”, 4:00 – 6:30pm (first come, first served). Bring  Sports Physical Clearance form and Physical Evaluation Form. Parent/guardian must accompany student.

  • TRYOUTS: Check each team’s webpage for summer tryout dates & schedules; many sports will hold tryouts for incoming students beginning June 19.  Students who choose not to participate in summer practices/tryouts will need to tryout when the season of sport begins; schedules will be rearranged if they make the team at that time.

  • SUMMER PRACTICES:  Most teams will hold summer practices/tryouts, though all sports are required to have a 3-week “dead” period during the summer. The dead period is a good time to make vacation plans.  Summer practices are not mandatory but are highly recommended and help us coordinate your initial course schedule.  Fall Sports have priority during summer if practice times conflict.
