Admission Costs to Athletic Events

PSD using digital tickets for athletics

To increase safety, security and convenience for fans and community members, the Poudre School District Athletics Department will use digital tickets for football, volleyball, basketball and wrestling at all four comprehensive high schools, effective immediately.  The move to digital ticketing allows for faster delivery of tickets to fans, contactless transactions and flexibility for ticket holders.  

As part of the policy change, purchasers will no longer receive a physical ticket at the gate.  They will access digital tickets through the mobile Ticket Spicket app or online. 

Students who purchased an Activities Pass and show the Activities icon, located on their student ID, will be admitted without needing to purchase a digital ticket.

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.
