Foothill's athletic department is a competitive program with a wide variety of sports to provide opportunities for all students.
Athletics at Foothill are self-funded. Athletic director costs, trainer fees, transportation expenses, uniform expenses, equipment upgrading/replacement and tournament entry fees are self-funded. As such, a voluntary donation is asked of each player to help fund these valuable programs as well as to support our Foothill Athletic Boosters.
All students are welcome to participate in athletics whether or not a donation is made. However, without your generous support, athletics at Foothill would be unable to continue.

Informational Sports Meetings
Athletes and their parents/guardians should attend the informational meetings for fall, winter and spring sports. Please check the website for meeting dates. You'll get all the info you need regarding fall sports.
Athletes must complete the sports packet (AthleticClearance.com), including a physical exam, before they allowed to try out for a team or attend practice. Fall sports: It's crucial that the sports packet be completed online before school ends in June to allow time for processing.
Access the entire sports packet. An annual physical exam or statement by a medical doctor is required certifying that the student is physically fit to participate in athletics. The sports packet page includes a form athletes should take to their physical exam and then upload with their sports packet. Please note that a chiropractor's assessment is no longer valid.
The voluntary donations for sports are truly appreciated since our athletic programs at Foothill are all self-funded and cannot run without the support of the community. Voluntary donations can be submitted at the FHS Webstore or checks can be delivered to the Foothill office (checks made out to Foothill High School with the sport in the memo line).
All athletic teams at Foothill stress sportsmanship and fair play. Participation depends on the following:
- Completion of the sports packet (available online)
- Attend a pre-season meeting with the coaching staff
- Attend all tryouts and practices
- Follow all rules of eligibility, both transfer and academic
Pre-season sport meetings are held before the beginning of each season of sport. These informational meetings will be held virtually via Zoom/Meet or in the Large Gym (unless otherwise indicated).
It is strongly encouraged that all families get involved with the Foothill Athletic Boosters.
