FVMS Spring Athletics
Based on feedback from middle school principals and athletic directors, any interested middle school student-athletes will have the opportunity to participate in skill development, conditioning workouts, and, for some sports, intramural competitions beginning in the second semester. Students will be able to participate in athletic activities only on days when they are in school for face-to-face instruction. Virtual Academy students wishing to participate will be assigned to a cohort and allowed to participate during the week that the cohort is at school. This means contests and games between schools will not be held. Circumstances will continue to be reviewed as conditions change. The scheduled dates for when each sport is in season are listed below. Students will be permitted to participate in multiple sports but only if the sports are in different seasons. Students can only participate in one sport per season.
- Season 1- January 25-February 19.
- Boys’ Basketball, Girls’ Basketball, and Cheerleading
- Season 2- February 22-March 26
- Volleyball, Girls’ Soccer, Football, and Cheerleading
- Season 3- April 7-May 14
- Softball, Boys’ Track and Field, Girls’ Track and Field, Boys’ Soccer
Students will have to follow all current protocols including wearing a mask over the mouth and nose at all times. Locker rooms will not be available for student use so students will need to wear clothes to school that they will participate in during practices. Students will only be able to use the water fountains to fill up water bottles. They will not be permitted to drink directly from the water fountain. Virtual students will have to undergo a health screening before entering the school.
Coaches will share specific details and procedures about athletic activities related to their sports with students and parents once rosters are finalized.
If you are interested in participating in athletic activities this school year, please complete this Google Form. In addition, you will need to complete the Middle School Athletic Participation Form found at this LINK. The participation form includes the physical form that must be completed if your child did not receive and turn in a physical form to Coach Umphrey on or after March 1, 2020. If you wish to participate in Basketball or Cheerleading, you will need to turn in the full athletic participation form including the physical form by January 22nd. The form may be returned to the school when you pick up your child’s 3rd quarter course material or to our front office.
Lastly, athletic activities are open to all 7th and 8th-grade students. After assessing interest and determining available space, we will decide if interested 6th-grade students are able to participate in that sport.
