    Athletic Director

    Extension: 83107 

    Welcome to the FDHS Department of Athletics. We are dedicated to fostering both physical and mental development of our students as a part of our athletic programs.  When participating in or attending an event we expect our students to represent themselves as young adults.  It is our hope through mental and physical development our students can fully benefit from the opportunities awaiting them in post-secondary education and training program. 

    Fall Season start date: August 11th. Please contact the designated coach for more details about tryouts and practices. All athletes must be approved on If you have questions about that contact our Athletic Director (info above).

    Steps for being approved to participate in athletics:

    1. Get an up to date Sports Physical
    2. Complete all registration items and upload a scanned copy of your physical to
    3. Await approval status on formreleaf. (You should receive an email notification. You may need to check your spam folder if you don't see it in your inbox.)
    4. Status must be Approved (Once everything is completed the athletic director reviews everything and gives the final approval. This cannot be done by a coach)

    All documents you may need:  


    As with any extra curricular activity in PG County all athletes must meet academic guidelines.  Students must maintain a GPA of 2.0 or higher to participate.  Any final quarter grades prior to or during the season determine a player's eligibility.  

    Sports Seasons 

    Please refer to the MPSSAA Handbook for updated season dates each year.

    The sports season first practice dates are as follows:

    • Winter season starts November 15th*
    • Spring season starts March 1st*

     *When November 15th or March 1st falls on Sunday, practice will start the preceding Saturday.

    All athletes must participate in a certain number of practices prior to playing in an official game/competition. This means students need to complete all participation requirements as early as possible so they can begin practice on the first day of the season.

    Tryouts & Interest Meetings
