Athletic Clearance Information

Please be patient for athletic clearances and response time to emails over the summer. Wait times will be longer than usual.

Trying to get cleared?

Please allow 48 business hours from submission of your Athletic Clearance account for clearances during the school year. Please allow 1-2 weeks from submission of your Athletic Clearance account for clearances over the summer. Please also refrain from sending multiple emails with the same message, as this further delays our response time.

Athletic Clearance Process:

·         Students must get cleared prior to any athletic participation.

·         As a reminder, there is a 48 business hour grace period after submitting your Athletic Clearance and after making any changes to your profile during the school year. Please be patient, as we must manually check all student-athlete profiles from all sports.

·         In season sports have priority for clearances. If you are emailing for an off-season sport, please be patient as we work on clearing in-season student-athletes first.

·         The Preparticipation Physical Evaluation is valid for 365 calendar days from the date the physical was done.

·         The ECG is a one-time requiprement while in high school.

·         Please visit the following website for Athletic Clearance: https://athleticclearance.fhsaahome.org/

When can I begin completing my account for the 2023-2024 school year?

You can begin completing your Athletic Clearance account for the 2025-2025 school year now. If you need to make any updates or changes to your 2023-2024 Athletic Clearance account, please contact Ms. Matz:  [email protected] .

Do I need an ECG?

Per OCPS, all student-athletes, marching band, color guard, sea cadets, and competitive dance students are required to have an ECG completed prior to participation for the 2023-2024 school year. For incoming 9th graders and new students, only an ECG completed after January 1st, 2023 will be accepted. If the student-athlete was in high school prior to the 2023-2024 school year and completed the Athletic Clearance process including the ECG, these students do not need to get another ECG. Only one is required per four years in high school.

What is my Username?

Your username is the email address you registered with. We highly recommend not using a student OCPS email address to register.

What if I want to play multiple sports or want to choose a different sport later?

If you know you are going to play multiple sports when registering, it is best to add all sports on the first step where you also select the school year and school. If you are registering for additional sports after completing your initial clearance for the year, please contact Mrs. Kiley O’Neill or Ms. Dana Matz for assistance. 

What if I have more than one child? Do I need to create separate accounts for each?

No. Once you click on ‘Start Clearance Here’ in your dashboard, you will select the year and school for whichever child you are completing it for. It will then give you the option of selecting a current child in your account, or adding another child. All children will then appear in your dashboard. You will have to complete all required steps and documentation for each child.

Where do I upload forms?

Under the files section of the profile.

Why haven’t I been cleared?

The Athletic Training staff at Lake Nona High School will review the information you have submitted and either Clear or Deny each student-athlete for participation. Please allow at least 48 business hours for this process duing the school year, and 1-2 weeks over the summer. If the student-athlete is cleared you will receive an email stating they are cleared. If something is missing or completed incorrectly, you will receive an email notification stating the student-athlete was denied. The email will also include steps you will need to take to obtain clearance for the student-athlete. Student-athletes are NOT allowed to participate of any kind until they are cleared.
