ATHLETIC CLEARANCES

An annual athletic clearance is required to play sports at LCHS. Instructions for obtaining an athletic clearance are here. Essentially, you need to 1) download the doctor's form and get it signed by a doctor; 2) create or sign in to your account on athleticclearance.com, fill out and "sign" the online forms and acknowledgements, upload a copy of your insurance card to the site, and print and sign the confirmation page; 3) on your registration day, using a check payable to LCHS ASB with your name and student ID no. on the memo line, pay $65 for ASB membership and $200 for transportation donation; and 4) give Ms. Kalb your doctor's form, the confirmation page, and your ASB payment receipt.

DIVISION PLACEMENT FOR LCHS BOYS

For the 2016-17 school year the LCHS boys water polo team will compete in Div. 5. We previously were in Div. 3, but there is a new system this year for the playoff divisions. Instead of assigning divisions by league (e.g., all Rio Hondo League teams were in Div. 3), starting this year the divisions are assigned according to each team's power ranking, which is based on its record the past two years. South Pasadena and San Marino have been assigned to Div. 4, while La Canada, Temple City and Monrovia are in Div. 5. (Crescenta Valley and Hoover are in Div. 2, Flintridge Prep is in Div. 4, and Glendale is in Div. 7.) Div. 5 has 45 schools, 32 of which will go to the playoffs, and LCHS's power ranking is the 23rd highest in Div. 5.


TEAM UNIFORMS

For Club games, players wear 1) a Club swimsuit imprinted with "LCWP," and 2) a white team polo shirt personalized with the player's last name.

For LCHS games, players wear 1) a LCHS swimsuit imprinted with "LC," 2) a team polo shirt, and 3) team shorts. Note that CIF rules prohibit wearing a club suit in a high school game.
