This past Monday night the AVHS Boosters hosted our quarterly membership meeting…and a special meeting it was! Joining us was Chet Gould from JacketBack Embroidery presenting the AVHS Booster Club with a $500 donation!
Just last fall, AVHS Boosters started participating in a program with JacketBack called Promoting Positive Preps. In the program, JacketBack “kicks back” $25 to AVHS Boosters for each letterman jacket they create for AVHS athletes. If you’re interested in participating, information on the program, how and where to buy is included with the actual letter when the athlete receives receives his/her letter. Thank you to JacketBack – we’re already seeing the rewards of this program in a short amount of time!

Step 1: Parents must now register their student online through Athletic Clearances Registration (www.AthleticClearance.com) before a student can try out for a sport. All athletes must provide a current athletic physical form, which is good for one year from the date of the exam. Be sure to print and bring the physical form to your Doctor appointment and once completed please upload the physical form to the athletic clearance site where requested. (Remember—each physical form needs to be signed and stamped by your physician to be deemed valid.) If your student plays multiple sports, physical forms can be transferred from one sport to another (within same school year), but you must register your student, using Athletic Clearances, for every season. The three other traditional registration forms are now included in the on-line process and will be completed electronically so are no longer physically required by Activities.

After completing the on-line registration process, you will receive a confirmation email that your information has been submitted to us. *You must still print this email and include both a parent and student signature. * Bring this signed form along with a copy of the sports physical to Activities for Final Clearance beginning January 22, 2018.
**Checks for Athletic Registration fees for these sports may be turned in with the registration paperwork to the Activities Desk. Please refer to the Spring Sports Registration Fee List link for the suggested amount for each sport. (https://amador.pleasantonusd.net/apps/pages/index.jsp?uREC_ID=300633&type=d&pREC_ID=1110065)
*Payment can also be made on the SPORT page. Click on the button that says Athletic Registration.
Step 2: Complete a baseline concussion screening for your athlete if it is required by your sport. This screening is a computer based test and will take approximately 30 minutes to complete. The test is administered on-site at Amador by our Athletic Trainer. A Baseline Concussion test is good for two years once taken and is a requirement for incoming Freshman athletes.

Step 3: Please ensure that all book bills are cleared for your athlete prior to submitting any paperwork to Activities. Debts must be resolved prior to clearance for tryouts in your sport.
Step 4: In order to participate in sports at Amador a student must be in good academic standing. Grades will be checked for each student at the time of their email and physical form submission to the Activities Desk.
Sports Clearance must be received before a student will be allowed to try out for a Sport. Please ensure that you follow each step to secure your Clearance in a timely matter.
For your convenience, Athletic Registration payments may now be submitted online.
[Checks may also be delivered to the Activities Desk with your paperwork. ]
