Athletic Clearance Edition

As we welcome students back to campus and in-person athletics (YAY!), we have revised the Athletic Clearance Process. Please read on and feel free to forward this email to your sports community.

Beginning September 24th, we ask all student-athletes/families to upload required documents to their athleticclearance.com account online.

Here are some of the key revisions to the process:

SIGNATURES

The student-athlete AND parent/guardian, will need to read the form(s) (located on the right side of the screen) and type in a full name on the line requesting an online signature indicating the forms have been read, understood, and individuals will adhere to the corresponding text.  You may also download a copy of the forms via the link below the text.  

The first half of the section is for a parent name and the last half is for a student name; enter each field with a full name as prompted and DO NOT USE AUTO-FILL.

Again, make sure that you go over them with your student present and have him/her sign their section as well.

PHYSICALS

Once completed, scan the IUSD Physical Form and upload it to your clearance account in the physicals section/”Physical Form”.

You must also upload a copy of your proof of medical insurance card; attach it in the physicals section where it says “Proof of Insurance”

If you do not have a scanner, you may simply take a picture of the form with your phone

Email or save it to your computer and upload the documents that way.

CONFIRMATION PAGE

When you reach the final step and see the CONFIRMATION MESSAGE, select all additional sports that the athlete is interested in and/or participating in.

PRINT OUT the confirmation/signature page.  Parent/Guardian signs, student signs and dates. Here’s what the confirmation page looks like:

Upload a picture of the signed confirmation to the Physicals Section where it says “Confirmation Message”. Here are the different sections you will see:

You can also return to this section from the landing page by clicking the pencil in the column labelled Uploads. Here is what the landing page looks like:

COVID WAIVERS (There are 2)

Print & sign the COVID waiver form and upload a picture of the signed waiver to the physicals section where it says “COVID Waiver”

Print & sign the COVID protocols letter form and upload a picture of the last page to the physical section where it says “Additional Form”

CLEARANCE STATUS

You are NOT CLEARED to participate until all of the above steps are completed and verified by the school. Your student can stop by the office to indicate all steps are complete or they/you can email meredithkohl@iusd.org that you have completed the process.

If there is an item missing you will receive an auto-reply denial message explaing the steps needed to complete the process.

Once cleared, the user on the account will recieve an email indicating the student athlete is cleared.

You can check your status by logging back into your account and looking at the “Status” column. You will see either a green Cleared, red Uncleared or red Denied. Here is where you can find the Status column:

For more information, please open and follow the updated step-by-step instructions sheets below.

ASB August Athletes of the Month

Noah Scherson, Football

A junior receiver this year, Noah promises to continue his offensive contributions this when football resumes.

“Noah Scherson […] was our leading receiver last year as a Sophomore, came a few yards away from breaking the UNI receiving yards record in a season last year.  Awesome student and person.  He is a joy to coach!” 

–Coach Hernandez, UHS Football


Ashley Wallin, Water Polo

A sophomore driver, Ashley is set to lead Uni’s offense in the pool this year.

“I have known Ashley for some time now, and watching her grow into the athlete she is becoming is great to see.  It is not without a lot of hard work that she has put towards [water polo], and she deserves the recognition.  She came onto the team last year, and immediately made an impact.  She was able to compete as one of our top level performers in her swimming, shooting, and over all water polo abilities.  She is also a top defender and all around balanced player.  The fact that she has a few more years to continue to grow and mature as an athlete is exciting to me because her future is bright in this sport.  In and out of the water, she holds high standards as being a good teammate.  All of her teammates seem to adore her and respect her.  She commits to practice and games with 100% of her effort.  She is a real joy to coach. “

–Coach Briggs, UHS Boys & Girls Water polo

Congratulations to Noah Scherson & Ashley Wallin! 🏈🤽‍♀️

Uni’s Sword & Shield Covers Athletic Training During COVID-10

REPS AND DRILLS: HOW STUDENT-ATHLETES ARE TRAINING DURING COVID-19

By Amitis Tajallaei, Staff Writer

Trojan athletes across different grades have been training mentally and physically to stay in shape during the postponed fall season. For the 2020-2021 school year, CIF-SS decided to condense three seasons of sports into two seasons, a fall season and a spring season.

With the coronavirus pandemic and the distance learning orders, training and staying motivated have been a struggle for many athletes because of the Covid-19 quarantine and many athletes have had to adjust their schedules and change their mentality to be able to stay in shape. 

 “I train 6 days a week, with 4 days conditioning, running and jump rope, and the other 2 I do Pilates and bodyweight training,” Said senior lacrosse player Mya Wang, “I always listen to music while exercising to lift spirits, even if it’s just a minuscule amount” 

The promising return of California sports has been welcomed by all athletes who have been training hard. 

“I’ve been training with college athletes and working out to stay in shape,” Junior football Noah Scherson said, “Fall is my favorite season. Football season being pushed back has changed my perspective and made me appreciate the sport even more. Since we haven’t played in so long I realize how much I miss it.”

The loss of a fall season has impacted sports far beyond the scope of the field play. The absence of unity and motivation that comes through Offseason Training Activities and team practices frustrates players as they aspire to train together. 

“With sports being canceled it is hard for me to stay motivated and to continue my training at the same intensity,” said sophomore water polo player Ashley Wallin, “To stay motivated I surround myself with a team and friends that are very motivated which keeps me working hard”

Some athletes are doubtful about the continuation of sports this year which contributes to losing motivation, despite CIFs announcement about the fall season being resumed in winter, 

“[Fall season being delayed] makes me worried that there won’t be a season for us to win this year,” said senior water polo player Matt Wallin, and to stay motivated “ I remind myself that I need to keep training to play in college”

Despite all the challenges, athletes across all sports still are finding the strength to train their best and stay motivated to prepare for the upcoming sports seasons.

Baseball’s Back! …Sortof

Dipatches from Fall Camp

This Monday, Uni Baseball was the first athletic program to head out onto the field for a Fall Athletic Camp. Coach Hindman and two of his returning Seniors reflect on the camp experience….

The Covid restrictions we are under for our Fall Camp helps us realize there are more important things in life than Baseball. Getting used to wearing face covering and keeping our distance from teammates in a team sport will take some getting used to, but it will make us better at communicating. It is exciting to see the smiles on our players faces, and that is what makes it all worth it. –Steve Hindman, Head Baseball Coach

Being unable to use baseballs out on the field and having to stay socially distanced has obviously shifted the way that we typically practice, but that hasn’t stopped us from continuing to put in the work to get better. We have ramped up our physical conditioning to put us into the best shape possible once we are allowed to fully return, making sure we win those games that come down to the wire in the final few innings. Additionally, although our ability to work on pitching, fielding, and throwing has been nearly entirely eliminated, turning our focus to hitting and baserunning has allowed us to specialize much more on the minute details of these two aspects and perfect them before our full return. I definitely miss taking batting practice and turning double plays, but this will just make it that much better once we are able to fully return.–Beckett Kreter, Senior

COVID regulations and social distancing guidelines have forced us to adapt our approach to practices. We may not be able to throw the ball around but we are given the opportunity to sharpen the fundamentals of baseball. Our increased emphasis on conditioning ensures that by the time season rolls around we will be able to run circles around other teams, especially in the later innings of a game. We’ve also shifted our focus to hitting and base running to get back into the rhythm of baseball, and hopefully knock off some of the rust from our six months stuck inside. Not being able to pitch or field might not be ideal but our team prides itself on our ability to overcome adversity and I believe this experience will only strengthen the bond of our team.–Ryan Shaw, Senior

Uni Athletics is excited to welcome our athletes back for conditioning and socially-distanced skill training. In the weeks ahead, we look forward to sharing more reflections from the field, pool and course with our community. GO TROJANS!

Football, Golf, Water Polo Fall Camps begin next week!

*Girls complete 3 miles in 27 min or faster
*Boys complete 3 miles in 24 min or faster
*IUSD COVID Waiver UHS COVID Protocols Letter are required at this time to tryout. BOTH (2) forms can be turned into the UHS Athletics Office or emailed to meredithkohl@iusd.org

Interested in Cross Country?

See what fellow Trojans have to say about last week’s tryout…

I was excited and nervous to run the tryouts on Monday. I didn’t know what to expect but it was a really good experience before and after the run. I really enjoyed the warm-up jog to the start of the run and the encouraging people along the run. I am interested in XC this year because I love to run and it takes my mind off stressful school work. I am also very happy XC is a no contact sport so we could tryout even with the COVID 19 pandemic. I really enjoyed the tryout, and I thought it was a very good experience. —Kaitlyn Carmichael, Freshman

Before tryouts, I was excited to be on campus, but also a little nervous since I hadn’t done any training with other people recently. Being a transfer student, most of the campus was new to me, which meant I was experiencing everything similarly to the freshmen. I was interested in joining cross country because I wanted to improve my running endurance, a skill required in many of the other sports I compete in. I also wanted to represent Uni as an athlete, and this was my first opportunity to do so this year. Despite the COVID-19 safety protocols, I’m just happy to return to training and look forward to the season even if I have to wear a mask or social distance. –Sydney Gaw, Sophomore


Uni Athletics Makes Headlines

Chris Carter named head coach for University High boys volleyball team

By Tim Burt, OC Sports Zone

Chris Carter, who has coached volleyball at El Toro, Foothill and Yorba Linda, has been named new varsity boys coach at University High, Athletic Director Tom Shrake said Monday.

Carter replaces Neda Eaton, who was serving as interim head boys volleyball coach last season at University.

“I want to create a culture at Uni where winning is a result of process based learning in a safe learning environment,” Carter said in an Email Monday night. “In my gym mistakes are known as being part of the sport and part of the process as long as there is intention behind the error and a attempt at correction post feedback. I want players to love not only practice and games, but to fall in love the grind and nitty gritty of becoming a better athlete, especially when it’s hard. Learning to put team over self will also be at the forefront of my coaching philosophy. …Read the full article here.

“I want to bring a culture where every athlete in the program knows each other by name from seniors on varsity to incoming freshmen at tryouts. We ask our lower levels to cheer for varsity and vice versa but if our athletes know each other as people as well as players, it creates a space where the athletes can support each other as much as we as coaches support the athletes.”

Uni tennis coach John Kessler healthy and ready to guide girls and boys teams in same season

By Tim Burt, OC Sports Zone

University High School’s long-time and highly successful tennis coach John Kessler said he is “doing much better” and ready to coach both the varsity boys and girls tennis teams next spring.

“I have recovered nicely from my event in November,” Kessler said in an Email to OC Sports Zone Sunday…Read the full article here.

“As a teacher and coach this whole situation is tough. We want to be with our students in the classroom and with our athletes on the court. However, with the current situation that isn’t possible so we all have to be flexible and creative to find ways to make this all work.”

SUMMER CAMPS UPDATE

Because of current requirements for opening schools as presented by the Governor and posted on the COVID19.CA.gov websitewe will not be able to resume athletic summer camps this summer. As guidelines change, CIF Sections may allow athletic activity to potentially resume following summer time rules up until December. This will provide the time necessary to prepare our athletes for the upcoming seasons.

If you have questions, please contact the head coach(es) of your sports of interest or our Athletic Director, Coach Shrake (tomshrake@iusd.org).

On Thursday, July 30th by 12 p.m. noon, we will shred all summer camp payments made via check. If you would prefer to void/destroy your check personally, please email meredithkohl@iusd.org to arrange a time to pick it up.

2020-2021 SPORTS UPDATE

On Monday, July 20th, the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) announced changes to 2020-2021 sports calendars due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Sports will be postponed for the fall and commence again starting in December, assuming it is safe to do so at that time. Here are some of the highlights of that announcement:

  • The regular three seasons of sports will be condensed into two seasons, Fall and Spring
  • Fall sports will start in December and Spring sports will start in March
  • Fall sports will consist of Cross Country, Football, Boys and Girls Volleyball, Boys and Girls Water Polo and Traditional Competitive Cheer
  • Spring sports will consist of Baseball, Boys and Girls Basketball, Boys and Girls Golf, Boys and Girls Lacrosse, Boys and Girls Soccer, Softball, Boys and Girls Swim, Boys and Girls Tennis, Track and Field, and Wrestling
  • The seasons will allow for pre-season and league competition, and includes CIF playoffs and one State playoff game
  • Athletes will be allowed to participate for their high school team and their club teams for this year only during the season of sport
  • Summertime rules will be extended from when the school year begins in August/September through December and the beginning of Fall sports (rev. 7/23/20)

This sports calendar was developed with input from all state section commissioners and state officials. We are hopeful that it allows enough time for the current COVID-19 crisis to subside. However, this athletic calendar also allows for some flexibility based upon the available data prior to the start of each season.

Here is the link for the CIF State Media release https://cifstate.org/covid-19/7.20.20_release and the CIF Southern Section Sports Calendar.

Please stay safe, follow health guidelines, and be part of the solution towards reopening schools and sports.

ATHLETIC CLEARANCE

In preparation for a return to play, we encourage all Uni athletes to continue to submit athletic clearance paperwork for the 2020-2021 school year. Full instructions can be found below or here.

We apologize for the confusion and disruption this may cause, but safety for our staff and students and adherence to state and county guidelines has to be our priority.  We are so grateful for your flexibility and patience! At this time all summer sports camps will be postponed until further notice. We hope to resume later in the summer and will be in touch with specific information as soon as we know more.

Please attempt to do so beginning June 15. In the meantime, all student-athletes are encouraged to setup their 2020-2021 athleticclearance.com account. Instructions can be found below.

In addition to your primary care doctor, locations within the Irvine area, including Hoag Health Woodbridge (flyer attached) and Family Care Center’s Woodbridge Walk-in Clinic are ready to take sports physical appointments. Students must call ahead to schedule appointments and must bring an IUSD physical form with them for the doctor to complete.
