FUSD K8 Athletics will have a few changes for the upcoming year. Beginning this 20-21 school year, our first season sports will be basketball and cheer. If you are planning on trying out, make sure you are ready to go by completing all the required documents located in


The 2020-2021 sports K8 sports seasons are as follows:

  • Season 1: Basketball-Cheer
  • Season 2: Baseball/Softball
  • Season 3: Football/Volleyball/Cheer
  • Season 4: Soccer/Wrestling

As a reminder, all sports are open to students grades 6th – 8th with the following exceptions:

  • Football, 7th and 8th grade only
  • Wrestling 4th – 8th grades

This year, due to COVID-19, the AIA is allowing all returning athletes who have a physical from the 2019-2020 school year on file in to use the same physical for the upcoming 2020-221 school year. If you played a sport last year in FUSD you may use the same physical this year. However, if you did not play a sport, did not have a physical during the 2019-2020 school year, or are new to our district, you will need to get one before tryouts begin.

We are excited for an amazing year! If you have any questions please contact your site athletic director.

Thank you,
Jeff Cox, M.Ed.
