Athlete Eligibility Requirements, Health Insurance and Clearance Procedure

covid update 2020-2021

We are unsure what the sports seasons will look like this year. We are in the process of working on our athletic clearance for the new school year. Please check back and check the news section of schoolloop for information at the beginning of July for the athletic clearance and after July 21st for the fall sports season plan. 

Requirements for athletic clearance

The 20-21 athletic clearance website is not available for Wilcox at this time. Please check back for updates and we will let you know when you can begin.


In order to be cleared to try out for a sport, the following steps must be done.

---Parents/guardians and the student athlete should visit the athletic clearance website and create an account. On here you will be able to view our Wilcox Athlete Guidelines and all other requirements. Parents/guardians and student athletes will then digitally sign acknowledging they have received and reviewed the materials. 

---Student athletes must have health insurance. If you are in need of health insurance you can purchase a low cost plan. Please see the section to the right called Options for Health Insurance.

---Student athletes must have a current physical on record. Physicals are good for 365 days. Once your physical is completed, please upload it to the Athletic Clearance website. If you are unable to submit it online, please turn a copy in to the head coach or athletic director. It is recommended that you keep a copy for your records. 

---Here is a link to a form to take to the doctor for your physical. 


If you are unable to complete the clearance requirements online, please contact the coach or email Ms. Stott to arrange for a paper packet.

Other eligibility requirements

This is not a comprehensive list of requirements, but rather a few other reminders of some of the requirements to be eligible to play a sport. 

- During the season, the student athlete must be enrolled in 20 units.

- For the previous grading period, the student athletes must have been enrolled in 20 units and received a 2.0 GPA. If they received a 1.6-1.99 GPA they may apply for  academic probation. If you are in this situation, please discuss the matter with your coach. 

- Student athlete must not have turned 19 prior to June 15th of the preceding year.
