Athletic Clearance

For each season there is paperwork clearance night, but an athlete must only be cleared once per year. Cheerleading and Danceline have separate clearnce nights. The parent/athlete mandatory drug/alcohol contract and random drug testing presentations are offered online at the Athletics page on the DHS website on the left side under Drug Testing. Starting with the freshman year, a physical is required every two years.


Out of Season Participation / Club Sports

During the season, the athlete's primary commitment needs to be to the high school team that he/she is currently participating on. During the off-season, DHS adheres to NAC 386.696 (NRS 386.430). DHS does not require a pupil to participate in any athletic program for a sanctioned sport that is conducted before or after the season for that sanctioned sport. DHS does not require participation in any out-of-season activity to be able to participate in an upcoming sport.

*Click on the left side under "Forms" for the Off-Season Permit form.

  • Students wanting to play a sport must have 2 or more credits and a 2.0 GPA or better from the previous semester to be eligible to play any sport.
