VHS & VCMS Athletic Online Registration 

Any student wishing to participate in athletics at The Villages High School or The Villages Charter Middle School must have a completed online athletic clearance via prior to participation in practice, workouts or games. Click here for details.

Buffalo Athletics (VHS & VCMS) uses for VHS and VCMS student athletes. Athletic Clearance is a program that requires parents to register their student for participation in athletics. This online clearance will take the place of our "Physical Packet". Students will still have to pick up FHSAA Physical (EL2) Forms to complete and take to their medical provider for evaluation. All other "paperwork" will be done online with Athletic Clearance. Once complete, the physical will be uploaded by the parent or school to Athletic Clearance. See the flyer below for details.
