Sports Physical Night is June 15th at Nipomo High School

AGHS Athletics is moving to a new system for athletic clearance, HOMECAMPUS.COM. Students must complete the athletic clearance process before participating in athletics each school year. This includes tryouts, practices, weightlifting, and offseason workouts.

All necessary information required for clearance is collected online including the Sports Physical Form. Please make sure to upload both pages of the form: History Intake and Physical Examination.

Parents/Guardians can use the same account for multiple students. Also, each student can be cleared for multiple sports at the time of clearance or another sport can be added later in the year if necessary.

Sports Physical Night will be held the evening of June 15th at Nipomo High School. Students can attend with a parent/guardian and receive a free sports physical in order to be cleared for the 23-24 school year including the summer. More detailed information will be added soon.

For any questions regarding Athletic Clearance, please email Asst. Athletic Director James Carter at james.carter@lmusd.org.
