Athletic Clearance and Expectations for Summer Workouts

IMPORTANT: Athletic Clearance and Expectations for Summer Workouts

All students who wish to participate in summer workouts with any of our athletic teams must be medically cleared to participate.  This includes returning students as well as incoming freshmen.  Our Health Aide, Ana Herold, will begin clearing athletes for summer workouts beginning on Monday, May 13 and will continue until the last day of school (Thursday, May 30).  She will also be on campus two afternoons per week over the summer to clear athletes (this will give incoming freshmen an opportunity to be cleared if they cannot make it in before the school year ends).
Health Office Hours over Summer:

  • Beginning June 6, the Health Office will be open from 11:30am to 3:30pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays with the following exceptions:
    • Closed on July 4th, but will be open instead on Wednesday, July 3rd
    • Closed on July 23rd and July 25
    • Open on July 29, 30, and 31 (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday)
    • Closed August 1 through August 4
    • Open from 8:00am to 4:00pm, Monday through Friday beginning on August 5
Athletic Clearance Packets can be downloaded from the district website at http://www.smuhsd.org/cms/page_view?d=x&piid=&vpid=1342583008305.  Students can also obtain a hard copy of the packet from the Health Office.  All items in the packet must be submitted and approved by the Health Aide before participation in summer workouts is allowed (all athlete clearances for 2012-2013 expire on the last day of school).  Returning students who have currently valid physicals must resubmit all other clearance packet items before participating in summer workouts.  These students will need to submit an updated physical examination form as soon as the old form expires to maintain clearance.
NOTE:  Summer workouts are strictly voluntary, and families are not expected to arrange family vacations around these workouts.  Tryouts begin on the first day of official practice during the school year, and any activities outside the regular season of sport cannot be explicitly or implicitly required.  Please contact a member of the school administration if you have any questions or concerns about out-of-season workouts.
Official tryout dates for 2013-2014 are as follows:
  • Fall Sports:  August 16, 2013
  • Winter Sports:  November 4, 2013
  • Spring Sports:  February 3, 2014
