You will receive notification from AthleticClearance.com once your athlete has been cleared to tryout/participate in their season of sport.


Completed paperwork must be turned in to the athletic office (emails/fax not accepted) by the designated date below to ensure an athlete is able to particpate in tryouts.
                                                         Fall Sports 06/15/23 (before 12:00)
Winter Sports 10/20/23
Spring Sports 1/19/24
 All Athletic Physicals are valid for 12 Months from the date they occurred and must be valid for the length of the whole sport season.
  • If your physical will expire in the middle of the season, you must have a new physical done before tryouts.
              Ex: If your physical was done in July 2022, you will need a new physical for the 2023-24 school year which                will be good for the entire year.  If you had your physical in January 2023, your physical is good only for                    the Fall 2023-24 sport season.
  • If you are a new student (new to RBHS/PUSD), you can get your physical from your old school and turn it in (as long as it’s not expired or will expire during the sport season) you still must fill out and return the RBHS Paperwork to Play. 
If you’re not sure whether you already had a physical or have other questions, please ask!
