Family ID – Electronic Clearance Forms
For the 2017-18 school year, all of our athletic clearance forms, with the exception of your son's physical and white card will be completed and signed on-line. We have continued to partner with a company called "Family ID" to accommodate our needs. You will be registering with Family ID, but there is no cost. THIS MUST BE DONE EACH YEAR BEFORE YOUR SEASON OF SPORT. See link below for Family ID Link.

Physical Required
All student-athletes are required to pass an annual physical examination performed by a medical doctor before they will be allowed to participate on any athletic team or club. Chiropractors are not accepted.

  • This physical must be completed on a "Bosco" Physical form, which can be found on the Bosco website.
  • Physical also must be signed by an MD and stamped by the hospital or clinic where physical was performed.
  • All physicals for the 2017-18 school year must be completed AFTER June 1, 2017. Any physical completed before June 1, 2017 will not be accepted.
