In order to be cleared for each sport, you MUST complete the following four steps:

1. Complete a physical exam  Please use this form: Athletic Pre-Participation Form
This Athletic Pre-Participation Form must be completed by a parent and doctor prior to the start date of your sport. For your convenience, Palma will offer sports physicals for fall season student-athletes on Wednesday, August 4th at 6:00pm in the Steve Clayton Memorial Gym. The cost is $25 each.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The state of California only accepts physicals that are signed, stamped and dated from an MD, DO or PA (DC and RN signed physicals are not allowed).

2. Register online via www.athleticclearance.com
Registration for all seasons is currently open. Parents and their student-athletes will need to visit the site, create an account and register for each sport you intend to play. For a tutorial on using athleticclearnance.com click here

IMPORTANT NOTE: Please do not register for all sports — only for the sports you are planning to play. You can log back into your account to add a sport at a later date.

 
3. Mandatory Parent, Player Meeting. For all high school fall season student-athletes playing Football, Water Polo or running Cross Country your mandatory parent, player meeting is Tuesday, August 3rd at 6:00pm in the MPB. For all other high school and junior high student-athletes your meeting will be Tuesday, August 24th at 6:00pm in the MPB. You will only be required to go to one this year. 
 

4. Take and pass a Baseline Concussion Test

  • All Palma High School student-athletes are required to take the Baseline Concussion Test every two years.
  • If you are a freshman or new to Palma this year you will need to sign up for the Baseline Concussion Test.
  • You will need to reserve your spot and arrive on time. Plan on the test taking 45 minutes. 
  • All Palma Junior HS student-athletes are required to take the test every year. Palma will offer testing for Junior HS student-athletes once school is in session.
  • If you need to take the test you will need to do so only before the first sport you wish to play this coming school year.

PLEASE TAKE THIS TEST SERIOUSLY. It will be used as your baseline to evaluate any possible concussion symptoms in the event of an injury. If this test is not completed prior to the start of your season, you will be held out of all live contact until it is completed and logged.
