We have a new way of making sure that all of our Destin High School student athletes are in compliance with FHSAA requirements. EVERY student will now submit the paperwork required via the online portal at AthleticClearance.com as coaches will no longer be accepting the paper forms in person. Please see the instruction in the PDF below for help on how to submit all of the required paperwork via the website.
Additionally, students will be required to complete three short courses (links listed below) and upload the course completion certificates into the Athletic Clearance Portal. Students will receive the certificates after they complete each course. We suggest doing that BEFORE starting the Athletic Clearance process.
Once all documents have been submitted, they will be reviewed by a school administrator. Once reviewed, you will receive an email stating your student has been cleared to participate or further documentation is required. Students will NOT be allowed to tryout or practice until all required paperwork is uploaded & clearance has been given. You will only need to do this once a year and if applicable, can be used for other sports.
The Official FHSAA Link will have all of the additional PDF forms should you need them.
