Team Tryouts (ALL Sports) and Changes re: Physical Exam Requirement
Per new LAUSD policy, any student trying out for a high school team must have a physical examination before participating in tryouts. Only the district approved physical exam form will be accepted so make sure you obtain the form from your team's coach, the AD, or download it from this page under the section labeled "Athletic Forms."
IMPORTANT: Make sure the doctor performing the exam signs, dates, and stamps the form or it will not be accepted.
Once completed, turn in the form to the school nurse (or your coach) as she must then clear you to be eligible to attend tryouts. The nurse will notify the Athletic Director who will then notify your team's coach when you are clear and eligible to attend tryouts/compete. Once your physical is cleared by the nurse it is good for one year from the date of the exam. Therefore, if your child already has a cleared physical exam on file with the school, such as in the case that they had one done to tryout and/or play a previous sport, then he/she does not need a new one but rather needs to notify their coach so he/she can seek confirmation from the Athletic Director; however, they would need to have a new physical done before the current one expires so there is no disruption in their athletic eligibility.
NOTE - If your child does not have a physical done AND it is not cleared by the school nurse then he/she may NOT participate in tryouts or compete until such time.
Any questions and/or concerns regarding this district-wide policy, feel free to contact the school's Athletics Office at (310) 847-6053 or the LAUSD Athletics Department at (213) 241-5847.
You Just Made A Team @ Carson High...Now What?
If you just earned a spot on one of our many high school teams you now need to complete an ATHLETIC ELIGIBILITY PACKET.
There are two ways you can get a packet:
- Open the folder at the top right of this page entitled “Eligibility Packet.” It is located under the heading Athletic Forms. Once open, print all documents in the folder and complete them according to the instructions on the document entitled "Packet Instructions."
- Obtain one from either the Athletic Director’s Office or your team’s coach.
Once you have completed all of the pages in your packet, turn it in to your team’s coach who will then give it to the AD who will check it over for accuracy and ultimately, determine your eligibility. NOTE: You MAY NOT participate in any practice or game until you have been cleared by the Athletic Director. Failure to comply with this policy may result in your being ineligible for the entire season and forfeitures for the team.
