How to Participate

Hello Incoming and Current Prospect Panther Athletes!!
 
We are continuing our online registration process again this year for the upcoming school year.  All students that are interested in playing a sport need to follow the directions below. Prospect High School uses Home Campus to manage all sports clearances.  Please make sure to follow all the steps below to register for the upcoming school year athletic program.
 
Please note, all students must be fully registered, including uploading a current physical dated after June 2nd, 2022 before they can participate in practice or contests for the team they wish to join.  The Athletic Physical Examination Form can be found below and must be completed by your doctor.  We will also have a doctor on campus to do physicals periodically through out the school year.  See right for date, time, and location.  The cost is $25 and cash will only be accepted.
 
All athletes and parents must go to https://www.homecampus.com/login to create an account before they will be eligible to tryout for a team. Please see the attachment below for instructions.
 
What is my Username?
 
What if I play 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.
  • 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 do I do about physicals?
  • The physical form can be downloaded above. This form must be filled out by your doctor. We will also have a doctor on campus that will provide physicals for $25 (cash only). See this page for upcoming dates. 
  • We will accept the physical online by uploading the completed form on Step #1 above as well as turning in a hard copy to the athletic department.

 

Why haven’t I been cleared?
  • Your school will review the information you have submitted and Clear or Deny your student for participation.
  • You will receive an email when the student is cleared.

 

What do I do if my sport is not listed?
  • Please contact your school’s athletic department and ask for your sport to be activated.
We are excited to announce that on June 16, 2022 the CUHSD Board of Trustees approved an agreement with the Kyle J Taylor Foundation to provide Heart Screenings for athletes for the 2022-23 school year. In accordance with this agreement, we will be requiring that 9th and 11th grade athletes have a heart screening as part of their clearance for participation in athletics. The foundation will work with your program to schedule a heart screening on your campus to operate alongside/in conjunction with the physicals you offer. 
 
Why this change?

Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) is the #1 killer of student athletes in the U.S., the #1 cause of death on school campuses, and the #2 cause of medical death among youth under age 25. Electrocardiogram (ECG) heart screening is the most effective tool to identify youth at risk for SCA. Given that 75% of fatalities for student athletes during sports are cardiovascular related, ECG screenings for student athletes can be a valuable component of the clearance process for athletic activity.  There are at least seven recent CUHSD alumni who have been affected by SCA, six of whom lost their lives to this condition. All of them had their usual pre-athletics physical screening and underlying conditions had been missed.  The seventh knew about SCA and asked his doctor for a screening; this led to identification of an underlying condition and proper treatment.

What do 9th and 11th grade athletes need to do?
Athletes in grades 9 and 11 during 2022-23 will need to get a heart screening, either as part of or in addition to their athletic physical, prior to participation in sports. 
  • If their outside doctor completing their physical provides this screening, that meets the requirement.
  • If their outside doctor completing their physical does not provide this screening, they can complete the requirement by getting the screening done at your on campus event hosted by the Foundation ($10).
  • If they get the physical done at your on campus event, they can also get their screening done at your on campus event hosted by the Foundation ($10).
 
What will this mean for you?
  • Use the updated 2022-23 physical form (Spanish); it includes the heart screening requirement for 9th/11th graders. 
  • Work with the representatives from the Kyle J Taylor Foundation to schedule the heart screening event(s) on your campus and communicate information about the event; I will send an introductory email connecting you on July 11 so that you can start planning. 
  • Update websites and other communication channels to include the updated form and the new requirement. 
 
FAQs:
Q: What about 10th and 12th grade students? 
A: These students are not required to get a heart screening, but they are welcomed to participate in your on campus heart screening events if the Foundation can handle the additional numbers. Please work with them to decide if they can be accommodated. 
 
Q: What if a 9th/11th grade athlete already got their physical and didn't get a heart screening?
A: The athlete can either return to their doctor's office or the provider to request a heart screening and an updated form, or they can get their heart screening done at your on campus event for $10. 
 
Q: What if a 9th/11th grade athlete has a financial barrier that makes it difficult for them to get the heart screening?
A: Currently, there is a small charge to the doctor who provides your on campus physicals. Whatever methods you utilize to assist with this barrier can also be explored for the cost of the heart screening.
