West Hills High School Athletic Clearance Process

Welcome to the Online Clearance Process Guide. Here you will find the directions to complete the clearance process to participate in athletics and activities; please review both portions of the clearance process.  A PARENT must create an account at AthleticClearance.com to clear their student athletes. You will need to create a "new clearance" for each sport you participate in, every year. Do not print out the consent form from a previous season as you will NOT be cleared without entering "new clearance" information, even if you have already participated in that sport in a prior season.

Have licensed MD or DO complete the bottom portion of the Physical Form.

**NOTE** Kaiser does not use our physical form for their exams. The completed form they provide contains the same information and WILL be accepted by the office if attached to the completed and signed top portion of the school's physical form. 

Step 4

Bring a copy of current physical, signed COVID waiver (if necessary), and the signed clearance/consent email to the Assistant Principal's Secretaries' Office.

All clearance forms are reviewed by WHHS Staff prior to approval. Students who are on the Loss of Privilege list may not be cleared until they are removed from the list.  Please speak with your assigned Assistant Principal to work out a plan to get off the list. Students and your Assistant Principal can work out a plan to get you cleared in time for tryouts. 

Students will be required to clear for each sport individually. The system will maintain student records so that when clearing for additional sports or in future years, you will only be required to update information. You can maintain multiple students with the same parent account.

Thank you.
