Calendar

For over 100 years now, many successful student athletes have called the Antelope Valley High School campus home. This proud tradition lives on as Antelope Valley Athletics look to continue their winning ways well into the next century. AVHS graduates have gone on to attend some of the most highly ranked college athletic programs across the nation and strive to compete at the highest level in both sports, and life. 

Currently our Lopes have their sights set on future Golden League and CIF titles and beyond. Lopes are contenders, not just on the field, but in the classroom. Please support our student athletes as they strive to represent Antelope Valley in tradition, athletics, education, and beyond...

PHYSICALS AND ONLINE CLEARANCE

All returning and incoming athletes must have completed the Athletic Clearance process before they can participate in any summer and/or school-year sports activities. The Athletic Clearance is valid for one year and must be repeated on an annual basis. Failure to renew the Athletic Clearance prior to summer will result in the student not being able to participate in any summer and/or school-year activities at Antelope Valley High School. 

Participation is only allowed after the Athletic Clearance has been approved by Antelope Valley Athletic Department. Since the 2017-2018 school year the Antelope Valley Union High School District will be using an online Athletic Clearance Process. The only papers that need to be turned in are the physical exam certification that is signed by a medical professional and the bus waiver. Step by step instructions for completing the online process with screenshots matching each step are listed in the AVUHSD Athletic Packet. You will need your physical document, insurance information, and student present in order to complete the online process.

The physical exam certification that is signed by a medical professional can be done by your healthcare provider. However, Dr. Massari is currently open and athletes can bring $20 and get a physical there quickly. 

Students must be cleared both online AND with the physical form to participate in athletics.
