Online Athletic Clearance FAQ

 

What is my Username?

Your username is the email address that you registered with.

Multiple Sports

Once you complete a clearance for one sport and arrive at the Confirmation Message, you will have the option to check off additional sports/activities for the current school year. PLEASE ONLY CHECK OFF SPORTS YOU KNOW YOU WILL PLAY. If you decide to participate in an additional sport/activity later on, you can access the multiple sport check boxes by clicking on “Print” under the Confirmation Message of your original Clearance for that specific year.

 

What if I have more than one child? Do I need to create separate accounts for each?

No. Once you click on ‘Start Clearance Here’ in your dashboard, you will select the year and school for whichever child you are completing it for. Then it will give you the option of selecting a current child in your account, or adding another child. All children will then appear in your dashboard. You will have to complete all required steps and documentation for each child.

EL2 FHSAA Physical Form

The physical form can be downloaded on Physicals page, found at www.bluedartersathletics.com or in the front office at Apopka. OCPS will accept the physical on-line (done by uploading the completed form on Step #9 above) or turning in a hard copy to the athletic department.

Statuses for this page are as follows:

  • Completed: All upload areas are filled (may not be required)
  • In Progress: At least one upload area is filled
  • Incomplete: No files have been uploaded

Document Library

This area is meant to store your files so they can be accessed later in the year or perhaps years following. You can either upload your files to the Document Library then apply them to your Clearance on the Physical page OR you can choose/browse for the file on the Physical page and the file will save to the Document Library for future use.

Why haven’t I been cleared?

Your school will review the information you have submitted and either “Clear” or “Deny” your student for participation. You will receive an email when the student is cleared. If there is something missing or completed wrong, you will receive an email notification.
