How to Get a Clearance Card

4 Steps to obtain a CLEARANCE CARD.

A Clearance Card is necessary to participate in Athletics at CCHS.

  1. Complete an Athletic Release and Physical Form (click here to download).  Page one must be completed with parent or guardian signature and insurance information. Page two of the form must be completed by a Physician (MD/DO), Physician’s Assistant (PA), or Nurse Practitioner (NP), licensed in the State of California. It is important that this form is turned into the Athletic Office, to begin the clearance process.
  2. Complete the Athletic Forms online.  Each parent or guardian must login using their student’s email and password to access the forms. There are eight pages that need to be completed. (If you are unable to submit the paperwork at the end of the process, this indicates that a required field was not completed. Please go back and double check forms and complete the missing information and re-submit).
  3. Each family must register, sign-in, and attend an annual parent/guardian Drug and Alcohol Educational meeting prior to the start of their sport (more information on this below).  An attendance list will be provided to the Athletics Office to place in the student’s file for verification of attendance. A student may not participate in a tryout or on a team until this requirement has been met.
  4. Students must come into the Athletic Office to receive their Clearance Card. Clearance card can only be issued by the Athletic office, once the first 3 steps have been completed and grades and eligibility has been verified.

Once the Clearance Card has been obtained the student must turn their Clearance Card in to the coach during tryouts or practice. The athlete CANNOT participate in the tryout or practice if the coach is not given a Clearance Card issued by the Athletic Office.

Alcohol & Drug Awareness Program Details

Cathedral Catholic requires at least one parent/guardian to attend the annual meeting to explore and discuss the perceptions and realities of alcohol and drugs that are pertinent to Cathedral Catholic High School students. In partnership with the San Diego Police Department, Cathedral Catholic administrators and counselors will discuss ongoing concerns about alcohol abuse, the increased access to marijuana, the vaping culture, prescription drug abuse and more. Additionally, optional educational opportunities will be made available to parents/guardians throughout the year related to alcohol and drug abuse. Students whose parent/guardian do not attend a meeting will not be eligible to attend or participate in athletics at Cathedral Catholic High School.
