Despite a confirmation message that you have completed the registration, the athlete is NOT cleared. When forms are reviewed by the Athletic Department at the start of the season, a clearance confirmation is issued to clear your student athlete the season or an email is sent stating the problem. Please be patient in this process. The athletics department does not receive a notification when a file has been created or updated. The athletic director or athletic secretary must personally review each file to clear an athlete. We check for new/updated files periodically, always giving priority to the current/upcoming season.

Click “Start clearances here” and select 2021/22 school year; Newbury Park HS; Sport. Click “Submit.”

At this point, the athlete is NOT cleared. When forms are reviewed at the start of the season, a clearance confirmation is issued to clear your student athlete the season or an email is sent stating the problem.
