All athletes who are trying out for a fall sport must have their athletic clearance card prior to being on the playing surface on the 1st day of tryouts on August 6th. (For cross country, we do not have try-outs, so Aug 6 is the beginning of practices and you must be cleared by then.)

To be registered and cleared, you need to register your child, pay the fall fee (or request a waiver), and have a current medical exam (within the past 12 months and not expiring during the season). You can register at this link: https://www.familyid.com/organizations/denver-east-high-school
