4 Steps to obtain a CLEARANCE CARD are listed below.

A Clearance Card is necessary to participate in Athletics.

  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 student athletic forms online.  Each parent or guardian must login using their student’s ID and password to access the forms. There are eight pages that need to be completed during this process. (If you are unable to submit the paperwork at the end of the process, this means that a portion of the forms were not completed. Please double check forms and complete the missing information and re-submit).
  3. Each family must register, sign-in, and attend the parent/guardian Drug and Alcohol Educational meeting (More information on this in next section).  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 on a team until the requirement has been met. (This means that a student may not play in a game or scrimmage).
  4. Once the Athletic Release and Physical Form has been completed and turned in, the online forms have been submitted, attendance at the Drug and Alcohol Awareness meeting is verified, and grades checked, the Athletic Office will print a Clearance Card.Students must come into the Athletic Office to pick up their Clearance Card. The student will then turn in their Clearance Card to the coach during tryouts. The student must have this card to participate in sports at Cathedral Catholic High School.

** Transfer students are considered students who have attended another high school prior to becoming a student at Cathedral Catholic High School. Transfer students must meet with the Athletic Director to begin the Clearance Card process. The student must clear Residential Eligibility before being allowed to participate at Cathedral Catholic High School. Transfer students need to contact the Athletic Office, (858) 523-4022, to set an appointment. **

Clearance Cards are available for pickup in the Athletic Office.
The Athletic Office hours are Monday-Friday, 7 a.m.- 3 p.m.


Alcohol & Drug Awareness Program
Parent/Guardian Program/Education

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. If a parent/guardian has not completed this requirement before tryouts, a temporary Clearance Card can be issued that allows the student to tryout and practice. Student may NOT compete in games/competitions/scrimmages through the school until this requirement is met.
