Athletic Clearance Forms

Click here to access athletic clearance forms.    If your student is planning to participate in athletics at Newport Harbor, it is mandatory for them to have the following documents completed and submitted to the athletic office prior to participating in a sport or summer program.  Please be sure to attach a copy of your student's current medical insurance card. If you do not have medical insurance, you can obtain coverage for your student for school athletic events from Myers-Stevens. Click here for information/application.  Make sure you initial the IV Insurance Certification section.


Concussion Management

Newport Harbor High School places student safety as our number one priority.  In the unfortunate situation when a student suffers a concussion we immediately implement our Return to Learn Protocol in the classroom and our Return to Play Protocol if a student is involved in our athletic programs.  We all need to be vigilant in our communication with one another.  We cannot implement our protocol if we do not know a concussion has occurred.  Parents  need to communicate with their students counselor immediately and we strongly suggest meeting with a doctor.  A doctor’s note is helpful in guiding us in accommodating your student’s needs.  The counselor will then inform your students teachers and begin to monitor your student’s progress as established by our Return to Learn Protocol.  If you have a student/athlete and the injury is not identified by the trainer/coach/athletic director please follow the same protocol as a non-athlete.   Teachers will work with your student and make accommodations based upon his/her progress.  If symptoms have a prolonged effect on your students classroom performance a student study team may be necessary.


Preventative measures taken by Newport Harbor High School Athletic Program:

  • Parent Notification in Registration Packet: Heads- Up Concussion
  • Required Baseline Testing for Student/Athletes ( All Freshman/ Juniors and new student transfers ).
  • Every two Years:  Coaches have Concussion Training ((AB1451)-District run on-line


The two documents below are to assist the concussed student to “return to the classroom and learning environment” in a scientific manner regarding brain activity.


Medical science and concussion care experts have found that a concussed athlete must take a gradual and progressive, stage by stage, step by step return to practice under medical supervision to minimize risks and allow the brain to properly recover. 

A.B. 2127 and CIF Bylaws mandated a MINIMUM timeline, but medical experts recognize that many adolescent concussion patients may take much longer to recover.  Always be cautious as returning to practice and play too quickly may have catastrophic consequences. 

Below is the CIF Website. Find the tab Medicine , then click on concussion for more valuable information regarding concussions.


CIF Victory with Honor

The NHHS Athletic Department in association with the NMUSD, CIF, the Josephson Institute of Ethics and the community share the goal of teaching the importance of character. All of the athletes at NHHS strive to understand the importance of being a “Person of Character” by living according to the Six Pillars of Character. All of the coaches at NHHS have been trained with the Josephson objectives as noted below:

The Student Athlete at NHHS

  • Is a good person, someone to look up to and admire
  • Knows the difference between right and wrong and always tries to do what is right
  • Sets a good example for everyone
  • Makes the world a better place
  • Lives according to the “Six Pillars of Character”
