The Canyon Athletic Department was hoping to have confirmed summer camp plans by May; however, the OUSD school board and state of California has not confirmed whether or not they will allow summer sports. With that, we wanted to give our community the information they would need should Canyon summer sports camps be permitted.
Athletic Clearance & Sports RegistrationTo sign up for a Canyon summer camp or 2020-2021 sport program, register at at www.athleticclearance.com. In the account select “Start a New Clearance”. Select the 2020-21 school year, Canyon/Anaheim and the sport the student would like to participate in. Then proceed to complete the student’s account. If the student does not have a valid physical you can skip that step for now. Register by May 1st or as soon as possible.Athletic Clearance accounts will be update starting Friday, May 1st. Staff will continue clearing accounts Monday – Friday between 12:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. until the first day of summer sports camp.
If your student-athlete is playing multiple sports there is a chance those accounts will be cleared at different times as staff has to go into the students account for each sport they are registered for so we thank you for your patience.
If you have not already registered please do so today or ASAP! Go to www.athleticclearance.com.
Please note, there is no automatic notification sent to the staff when you submit your www.athleticclearance.com account or when a physical is uploaded at a later date. If you’ve uploaded all documents a Canyon staff member will clear the account in the order of sport summer camp start date.
Only completed accounts (all account information completed including an uploaded current physical, signed and dated by MD or DO, plus an uploaded signed athletic clearance confirmation page) will be cleared at this time. If your account is complete and not cleared by June 20th please email our Athletic Trainer, Mrs. Medina at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you completed the athletic clearance account, but are waiting to get a physical, that is fine. Physicals do not need to be completed until the day before summer camp. Once a physical is completed, upload a copy of the physical to the account. If there is a current physical that was uploaded for the 2019-2020 athletic season account, that physical will transfer over to the 2020-2021 athletic season account and the account will be cleared prior to summer camps by June 1st. Physicals are valid for one calendar year.
If the student has had a physical done in the last 12 months and Canyon does not have it on file, then upload a copy of that physical into the athletic clearance account. If the student needs a physical, call and schedule a physical in June with the students Primary Care Provider (PCP). If you can’t get in to see your PCP before camps starts, you may obtain a physical at a walk-in local urgent care such as Med Post, St. Jude, or Sunrise Urgent care. We suggest you call ahead for availability. Dr. Chris Koutures, with Active Kid MD, is also scheduling physicals at this time in his office so feel free to call, verify your insurance and schedule a physical. The number for Active Kid MD is (714) 974 -2220.
If a physical expires, the account will automatically unclear, therefore you will need to submit a new physical. If a physical expires before June 25th we will not clear the students account as it will not be valid for summer camp.
If you have any questions, please contact our Athletic Trainer, Mrs. Medina: email@example.com
Thank you for your understanding and support.
