Mt. Carmel school code:  2UPSG8

Students who are interested in trying out for a sport are required to complete a Ticket to Play each school year AND obtain a pre-participation Sports Physical from a licensed practicioner. 
The athletic department uses an online system called DragonFly MAX to reduce paper and streamline our Ticket to Play completion and approval process.

To complete your Ticket to Play

The Ticket to Play process is required to be done once each school year (not each sport season).
  1. Complete all Ticket to Play forms electronically through Dragonfly MAX
    • Create a free account: Parents should use a computer to create an account with parent email, create a profile for their student(s), then click on the semi-circle at the bottom of the athlete's profile under "Prep for 2021-22" to complete required forms.
        ► The only forms that you will need to upload within DragonFly are a completed and signed Medical History Form and a Sports Physical Exam Form.  You will fill out all other forms electronically.
        ► Note: When the parent/athlete portion of electronic forms are completed, the athlete's profile will show 71%. The other 29% will be completed by the athletic department after all forms have been reviewed.  Once the profile shows 100%, it means all paperwork has been approved and the athlete is cleared for tryouts.
 We have created a step by step instruction sheet to help you through the online Ticket     
to Play process.  Please refer to this guide prior to contacting the athletic department   with questions.  Click here to view the walkthough:
  1. Visit a medical professional for a Pre-Participation Physical Exam.  This can be done with a Physician (MD/DO), Physician’s Assistant (PA), Nurse Practitioner (NP), or Chiropractor (DC) licensed in the state of CA. All students planning to try out for any sport will be required to obtain a Sports Physical. We realize that it may be difficult to get an appointment during this time. If you are unable to visit your child's primary care physican, please try one of these local area physicians that may be able to assist.
        Take these 2 forms with you to your exam: 
        Pre-Participation Medical History form (completed and signed by athlete and parent)
        Sports Physican Exam form (physican will complete and sign)
  1. Completed and signed Medical History and Physical Exam forms can be uploaded to DragonFly.  You must upload Medical History AND pre-Participation Physical Exam forms that are signed/dated.  This must be done before the deadline for your sport season (see time frames below).  If you are unable to upload these documents, please submit the original hard copies to the Athletics office.    
  2. Once you have completed all electronic forms and we have reviewed them, we will manually clear your student for tryouts and you will see a green circle that says 100% and "READY!" on your student's DragonFly profile.  Your student is NOT cleared for tryouts if this is not the case. 
If the above steps are not completed - No try outs. No exceptions!
→ Transfer students are considered students who have attended another high school prior to becoming a student at Mt. Carmel High School. Transfer students must speak with the Athletic Director or Athletic Assistant prior to being added to any team roster. We will assist you in completing any necessary CIF eligibility paperwork that is required before your student can compete in his/her sport.
