The official volleyball season begins with a three day tryout starting in August 6th). We expect that our players come in in shape and ready to perform. We expect that our team will be competitive on the court, and that there will be a lot of internal competition for roster spots. Our summer program is an important factor in what we will be able to accomplish as a team.
Please note that the summer activities are not a part of the official high school volleyball season and are therefore distinct from the official FMHS team. Participation is encouraged, but voluntary. Participation does not assure a player of making the FMHS team. Summer performance is not considered in the official season's tryout evaluation.
Register for Fall Sports

This clearing process includes getting a physical, filling out several required forms, and paying the district's athletic participation fee. ($140). The whole process is completed online.

Note that this process must be completed prior to a player being allowed to participate in the Tryout.
