We are excited that you are interested in playing a sport at Shadow Hills High School. In order to participate in any sport at Shadow Hills, you must gain athletic clearance. Incoming freshman (2015-16 school year) can begin this process now but are not allowed to participate or practice with any team prior to your 8th grade promotion.
