Welcome to SHS Athletics

  • Athletic Clearance opens June 1!!!

    Don't wait until the last minute to get cleared.  If you do, you are going to lose valuable time on the field.  Please read EVERYTHING on this site regarding athletic clearance! The "Athletic Eligibility Information for all Grades" dropdown menu under the "Athletics" tab at the top of this page will make this process very easy.

     

    ATTENTION ATHLETES

    Before you know it, the 2022-23 Sports Season will be upon us.  It is IMPERATIVE that you do not wait until the last minute to get cleared for your sport.  The Athletic Clearance website will be available on June 1, 2022.  Follow the easy step by step instructions to save time and frustration.  Part of being an athlete at Salinas High School means we do not procrastinate.  We will have a deadline to clear for all three seasons this year.  The following dates will be strictly adhered to during the 2022-23 sports seasons:

    Season     First Day Of Practice   Deadline to Clear       Date to Clear if Deadline Missed

    Fall           August 5, 2022             July 29, 2022               August 10, 2022

    Winter     October 31, 2022          October 24, 2022         November 11, 2022

    Spring     January 30, 2023          January 23, 2023         February 3, 2023

    There will be no exceptions to these deadlines.

    THIS MEANS THAT YOU WILL MISS AT LEAST FOUR DAYS OF VALUABLE PRACTICE IF YOU MISS THE CLEARANCE DEADLINE! 

    Get on it early and be ready to go on the first day.

    At Salinas High School, we have various sports that we offer throughout the school year. Each student must meet all of the eligibility requirements prior to participating.
