Athletic Clearance Process

In order to participate in junior high and high school athletics, students are required to complete the athletic clearance process. 

Puyallup School District uses an online system to complete the forms required to participate in both junior high and high school sports. The online system is currently being used for 7-8 junior high and 9-12 high school athletes.

The primary function of the RankOneSport web based service is to help organize, save time, improve communications, and provide documentation. It allows parents to complete eligibility paperwork and electronically sign permission forms, student handbook commitments, complete eligibility forms, etc. Such provisions expedite the athletic clearance process and serves as an electronic repository for athletic paperwork.

Electronic online forms are digitally signed by the parent and student, will be recorded as complete in the system database, and checked by the school athletic director when clearing athletes. There will be no need to bring these clearance forms to the school. There is no log-in or account to remember. Parents will need to know the Student ID to complete the forms.

Clearance forms must be completed ONCE per school year starting in August each year, unless information needs to be updated during the year. The digitally signed forms are good for the current school year (August to July) and the end-of-year summer activities. 
Ninth grade students should select the high school they are participating at, not their resident junior high school.

The forms are available at:

Students participating in high school or junior high sports must compete ALL requirements below and attend one of the athletic clearance sessions scheduled before each sports season at their school.
