Athletic Director- Mr. Tom Swift
In preparation for the next season, there are several things to keep in mind. All students must have a valid PIAA physical uploaded into Family ID. No student may try-out or participate in sports without a valid physical form signed by a physician. Physicals must be completed after June 1 and before the start of the sports season and should be turned into the head coach.
If you have a question or concern with your child's team, please direct your inquiries to his or her coach. If you fail to get a resolution, please contact Mr. Thomas Swift at firstname.lastname@example.org
Any changes to daily sports schedules will be sent out via Remind: www.remind.com/join/fugettsp
Students suspended may not participate in the Fugett Athletics program. Students academically ineligible may not participate, but may try-out for a sport.

Athletic Department Philosophy
The Fugett Middle School Athletic Program is comprised of a 7th grade and an 8th grade program.
The eighth grade program is a program designed for just eighth graders. In rare exceptions (ie. safety reasons or due to a low number of participants), seventh graders be permitted to play on the same team with 8th graders. This is only with the permission of the Athletic Director. If this were to occur, the opposing coach would be notified.
Because, in many cases, the 7th grade program is an "exposure" program, winning should not be paramount. Instead, within each coach's discretion, all players should have an opportunity to participate.
Each coach and student athlete will consistently demonstrate positive character and good sportsmanship.
In accordance with the PIAA rules, student athletes must meet eligibility requirements in order to participate.
Taunting the opposing player/team, running up the score, booing or hissing while a player is attempting a shot, or intentionally showing up the other coach or team is forbidden.
