What's New...

  • Dear FCUSD families / students / coaches:

    As we prepare for the 2022-23 athletic seasons, parents please update the annual Physical Examination form dated after June 1, and complete the Athletic Clearance registration online (check the school website for the address). Our success is attributed directly thanks to students' commitment, parents' support and especially our coaches' dedication to our student-athletes.

    High school info: Fall sports start on July 25th for football.  All other sports start on August 1st. That includes cross country, girls golf, girls tennis and girls volleyball. Please check with your high school athletic department for locations and time.

Girls and boys volleyball will start Aug. 22, cross country will start on Aug. 29, followed by boys basketball on Oct. 17 and girls basketball on Jan. 9. Track and field will start on March 6.  Other sports such as boys and girls soccer and wrestling schedules are still being determined.

  • Education-Based Athletics

    Our athletic programs firmly believe that all participants are students first and athletes second. Unlike youth sports and collegial level, FCUSD is an Education-Based Athletic program. FCUSD recognizes athletic competition as an integral part of the school experience. As such, all athletes should have the opportunity to participate in some form of interscholastic athletics within the limitations of each individual sport and such participation should encourage positive scholastic growth and achievement. Both the student athletes and the sport itself should be a credit to the school and the community. FCUSD realizes that an effective interscholastic athletic program is a product of the responsible cooperation among its five major contributors: the student athlete, the parents/guardians, the coaching staff, the school site and our district administration. FCUSD strives to strengthen the integrity of students and adults in the community by promoting the concepts of sportsmanship, honesty, and quality academics. These priorities advance the highest principles of character, trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, and good citizenship.
