All athletic paperwork is now being processed by using Athletic Clearance online.

Athletic Director Kent Ringquist said “Lakewood Ranch High School’s Athletic Department is now using Athletic Clearance to process athletic paperwork. We will no longer accept paperwork to be turned in to the athletic Office.”

Ringquist said the new system will benefit both coaches and players.

Ringquist said coaches won’t have to worry about lost paperwork and will be informed right away whether an athlete is cleared to participate.
