Welcome to Samohi Athletics. We are excited for you to join the Viking family this upcoming school year. Tryout dates and times are listed below by season and sport. Students can play multiple sports as long as they are not during the same season (i.e., a student can play both Football and Basketball but cannot play Football and Cross Country.) In order to participate in tryouts, all students must complete the Online Athletic Clearance process which includes a physical examination. Instructions for completing this process are included in this packet. Athletic Clearance must be completed by the first day of tryouts unless a different date is specified below. It is recommended that you complete this process well in advance of the tryout date to ensure that your child is cleared to participate as the approval process may take a few days. Please read the full instructions on the clearance process. For updates contact the Athletics Office at (310) 395-3204 ext 71536 or 71532 or email Mr. Patenaude at
