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. 
Starting June 2020, the athletic department has transitioned to 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 2020-21" to complete required forms.
        ► The only forms that you will need to print and turn in to the athletics office are the "Dragonfly Completion Page" and Medical History/Physical Forms.  Please check back for dates that we will begin accepting these forms.  We are not able to accept any forms while the office is still closed to the public.  
        ► Note: When the parent/athlete portion of electronic forms are completed, the athlete's profile will show 86%. The other 14% will be completed by the athletic department after parent/athlete complete steps 2 and 3 below.
 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 forms with you to your exam: Pre-Participation Medical History & Physical Forms
        Page one should be completed and signed by parent/athlete.
        Page two is for the health care provider to complete and sign.
  1. Keep your forms in a safe place for the summer. Hard copy forms will be collected before tryouts (Fall sports deadline TBA - we are not accepting forms while the office is currently closed to the public).  You must submit the original, hard copy Medical History and Pre-Participation Physical Exam forms that are signed/stamped/dated by healthcare provider to the athletic office along with the Dragonfly Completion Page.  This must be done before the deadline for your sport season (see time frames below). Without the original forms, the athlete will not be cleared to participate. We do not accept uploaded, emailed, faxed, xeroxed copies, etc.
  1. Once you have completed all electronic forms and we have received the hard copies of your student's medical history and sports physical, we will manually clear your student for tryouts and you will see a green circle that says "READY!" on your student's DragonFly profile.  Your student is NOT cleared for tryouts if this is not the case. 
If these 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.
