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.
Mandatory Sports Meetings
Athletes and their parents must 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 turn in completed sports packets, including a physical exam, before they allowed to try out for a team or attend practice. FALL SPORTS: It's crucial that all sports packets be turned in before school ends in June.

An annual physical exam or statement by a medical doctor is required certifying that the student is physically fit to participate in athletics.
