Summer Athletics Info
Attention all students interested in playing sports in 2019-20:
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://registermyathlete.com/login/ 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, signed by a medical provider and 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 PHYSICAL OPPORTUNITIES:
– UPDATED: Saturday, June 8, 2019 @ Ventura Orthopedics, 3525 Loma Vista Rd, Suite C (upstairs), 8am – 11am, $25 cash/check payable to “Ventura Orthopedics.” Proceeds will support FTHS Athletics. **Bring the sports physical clearance form and completed physical evaluation form. Parents must accompany students.**
SUMMER TRYOUTS: Check www.foothilltechnology.org (Athletics menu), for summer tryout dates & schedules; many sports will hold tryouts for incoming students beginning June 17. Students who choose not to participate in summer practices/tryouts will need to tryout when the season of sport begins; course schedules will be rearranged at that time if they make the team.
SUMMER PRACTICES: Most teams will hold summer practices/tryouts, though all sports are required to have a 3-week “dead” period during the summer. This 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 times conflict. Check the team webpages for detailed summer info.
