Athletics at Fossil Ridge

By being a member of a Fossil Ridge athletic team, regardless of time spent in actual competition, a student can learn many valuable lessons such as working together to meet team goals and good sportsmanship, including appreciating good play by an opponent, respect for others and winning and losing with dignity, being able to accept instruction and criticism, and self-control and responsibility for one’s own actions. We want all of our students to have a positive experience as a student-athlete. Our goal is to provide the highest quality coaching, the best facilities and equipment available and a wide variety of athletic competition for our young men and women. Most importantly, we strive to teach and engrain within our student athletes lessons that will guide them on their journey beyond the walls of our school. Please contact our FRHS Athletic Department Secretary if you have further questions at 488.6268.

Unified Sports Program

Unified Sports at Fossil Ridge High School joins students with and without intellectual disabilities on the same team. We are guided and inspired by a simple principle: playing together is a quick path to friendship and understanding.  PSD and Fossil Ridge High School are proud to offer four unified sports: Unified Flag Football in the Fall, Unified Cheerleading in the Fall and Winter, Unified Basketball in the Winter, and Unified Soccer in the Fall.
