We LOVE seeing our parents at performances, games, and competition!

Travis High School prides itself on the success of our many student groups that perform and compete at the highest levels across the Academic, Athletic, and Fine Arts arenas. And, we recognize that without the tremendous support of our Tiger parents, much of this would not be able to occur!


However, we would like to take the opportunity to remind our Tiger parent community about some general expectations for our events and competition.

  • Support your student and their teammates! No matter what they tell you or how old they are, kids love to see their parents in the stands! And they love hearing your voice as you cheer them on!
  • Be LOUD, Be PROUD, Be POSITIVE! Remember, to keep your words positive and encouraging!
  • Parents and spectators should not at any point address the referees, umpires, judges, etc. and/or opposing team players and/or coaches.
  • Referees, umpires, judges have the full authority to have removed any person that they deem to be disruptive, abusive, or disrespectful. Once this occurs, you will be asked to leave by a Travis HS Administrator and/or FBISD Police Officer.
