How to Participate

Hello Incoming and Current Prospect Panther Athletes!!
 
We are continuing our online registration process again this year for the upcoming 2020-2021 school year.  All students that are interested in playing a sport need to follow the directions below. Prospect High School uses athleticclearance.com 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 7th, 2020 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 athleticclearance.com to create an account before they will be eligible to tryout for a team. Please see the attachment below for instructions.
