  • Obtain a physical dated after June 1, 2017

Sports Start Dates

  • First Official Day of Fall sports practice: Aug 7th (football), Aug 14th (all other)

Athletic Clearance Information

Athletic Packet Screening - Athletic Directors will be on site to screen all packets for any missing info. Please note that Athletic Packets must be received by the Athletic Directors by 4pm on the Final Registration Date. After this date and time, the PHS Athletic Department will no longer accept any new student-athletes for Fall sports.


Fall Sports Clearance Dates (All Clearances will be in the Performing Arts Center (PAC) unless otherwise noted):

  • July 21st 9am (Football)
    • JV Athletes can turn in athletic packets for screening 9am at the boy's locker room

Athletic Trainer Introduction Meeting:

  • Come meet our Athletic Trainer, Troy Holland
    • Volleyball & Cross Country, Saturday August 12, 2017, 10am, Room A13
    • Tennis, Golf and Cheer, Saturday August 12, 2017, 11am, Room A13

This process is a requirement to participate in any interscholastic athletic activity. Note that attendance of a clearance date is not necessary to participate in athletics. It is against SRCS and NCS/CIF policy, however, for a student athlete to participate in athletics without successful clearance through this process. Therefore, if your student cannot attend a clearance date, they must see an Athletic Director for clearance before they are allowed to participate in any official athletic practices or contests.


The entire Athletic Packet and Medical Clearance must be completed only once per school year. The Medical Clearance must be dated on or after June 1st for the upcoming school year. Students who participated in either a Fall or Winter Sport this year do not need to complete another Athletic Clearance Packet. However, they will need to have their GPA and credits checked before they start practicing.



Athletic Clearance Packet
Please note that Athletic packets from prior school years cannot be accepted due to several rule/regulation changes for the next school year. Packets should be completed prior to the Athletic Clearance Dates, included in the packet, so that missed practice time is avoided.

Concussion Screening

All students planning on playing Volleyball, Cheer or Football must also complete the MANDATORY concussion education and Baseline testing session offered at Piner High School. All student athletes are required to have a completed written permission slip in hand to attend the concussion baseline screening. These can be picked up from the team's coach or in the main office.


Fall Sports Screenings:

  • Volleyball, August 12, 2017, 10:15 am, Room A13
  • Cheer, August 12, 2017, 11:15 am, Room A13

Santa Rosa City Schools, North Coast Section, and California AB 2127, require that student-athletes complete a baseline concussion screening program prior to participation in any practices or competitions within their sport activity. This screening requires both a computerized baseline testing, along with an educational seminar on concussion signs and symptoms. Both portions must be completed before a student is cleared to participate in any athletic event. Total estimated time of the screening is 2 hours. Piner High School offers these screenings at no cost to families. The Athletic Department has scheduled several dates for these screenings in order to accommodate the needs of students and their families.
