 Welcome to Crystal River High School

Athletics

As we approach the return to athletic workouts and fall participation, we want to remind everyone of the processes that must be completed. At this time, we do not have a time frame for returning but we are hoping that we can do so soon. We are encouraging all our student-athletes, cheerleaders, band and JROTC students to do the following:

  • Florida state statute and FHSAA requires all students to have a current physical on file with the school. Physicals are valid for one (1) calendar year. You may check with Mrs. Brown or your coach to see the date your physical expires to see if you need a new one. At this time, we have scheduled July 23, 2020 to be our free physical date.  Physicals will be done in the field house and the times will be from 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm for last names beginning with A - M, and 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm for last names beginning N - Z.  The current physical form needed by FHSAA, the EL 2, is available through the athletic tab on this website, and will be available the night of physicals. 
  • All students must register on AthleticClearance.com. During this process, be sure to fill out all sections in order to be cleared for workouts. This will include eSigning your EL 3 and the CCSB forms. Be sure that you provide emergency contact information in the required section. You will also be asked at the end of the process to check any sports you may be interested in playing.
  • Provide a copy of your current health insurance card to Mrs Brown. You may photograph, copy or present the card when you turn in your new physical to her office.
  • If you are a incoming 9th grader or new to Crystal River High School, we need a copy of your birth certificate. Again, a photograph or copy will be sufficient to give to Mrs. Brown.
  • Once we have all this information, we will check GPA for each student and declare eligibility. All student-athletes must have a 2.0 unweighted cumulative GPA in order to be eligible.

It would be beneficial for all student-athletes to view the mandatory videos at this time and present their certificates to our office so that is taken care of before the season starts. The videos that are required can be found at https://nfhslearn.com/  Student-athletes must watch the following videos before participation in their first practice:  Concussion for Students, Heat Illness Prevention, and Sudden Cardiac Arrest. Upon completion of each video, there is a brief quiz and then they can copy and save the completion certificate. These certificates can be sent to Mrs. Brown at browns3@citrus.k12.fl.us.

 If you have any questions, please contact Athletic Director Robert Verlato @ verlator@citrus.k12.fl.us, or Sally Brown @ browns3@citrus.k12.fl.us.
