Student Athletes!


If you plan to participate in any sports in season 2, 3 or 4 we would like you to sign up for the "extended summer period" from September 28-November 30th. Coaches want to get connected with athletes during this timeframe! During this period coaches may want to conduct team zoom meetings, Senior, Junior, Sophomore or Freshman meetings, and more. Signing up does not require ASB purchase, but for in-person training when we get that opportunity will require an up-to-date physical. The link to FamilyID is https://www.familyid.com/organizations/fife-high-school and remember to use previous years logins with parent emails. Select all the sports that you will play when you register, one registration is all that is necessary!


Look forward to getting active again! Get'em Trojans!
