WOHS will be using a new digital format for sports physicals and it is now active for OCPS. Our athletes will be able to fill out their physical paperwork digitally on www.AthleticClearance.com.
Click here to review the instructions for that process. Click here for the new physical packet which has changed slightly from this year. The only pages that the parents and athletes need to have filled out will be the EL2 by the doctor. The rest is filled out electronically on the Athletic Clearance website.
Follow the instructions on how to create an Athletic Clearance Account and to submit the physical online. You will upload the EL2 form (pages 1 & 2) and sign all the other forms electronically. At the end of the online process, there is an option to print a sport specific “wet” signature page. Please print a page for each sport you plan on playing this year. A parent/guardian must sign a clearance page for each sport going to be played. Once all forms have been completed online you will be notified if they have been accepted or declined (and given a reason). The Athletic Training staff will periodically check. Allow up to 1 week to receive a reply. If you have questions, please feel free to reach out to our Athletic Trainers, Matthew Laws at email@example.com, Jennifer Laws at Jennifer.firstname.lastname@example.org, or Michael Taylor at Michael.email@example.com.
