Students in grades 7 & 8 who wish to participate in interscholastic athletics are encouraged to do so. Sixth graders can only act as managers if selected by the coach. Programs include cheerleading, football, volleyball, cross country, golf, wrestling, basketball, softball, track, baseball, tennis, and soccer. These teams compete in the Junior Piedmont District. Students must pass three out of four classes for 8th graders, and four of the five for 7th graders each semester in order to compete in a sport the following semester. A Virginia High School physical is required before students may participate in any interscholastic event. Physical forms can be picked up at BFMS or TGC or printed online http://www.vhsl.org/. In addition to the physical form, every athlete must sign a participation form as well as a concussion policy form.
There is a mandatory meeting prior to each sports season. Both parents and athletes are required to attend. Dates and times are announced a few weeks before each meeting.
Mandatory Parent Meeting Dates for Winter 2016 Sports: Tuesday November 1st at 6:00 or Thursday November 3rd at 3:30. All meetings will be held in the FCHS auditorium. The athlete and parent both must attend and sign in on the clipboard to receive credit for attending.
For sports tryout or practice start information or other questions please call Jessica Slough at 493-6542 or BFMS at 483-5105.
Activity buses are available for students who participate in after-school activities. Buses pick up at the West Hall at 6:00 p.m. and transport students to Franklin County High School, where they will board buses that transport them to the bus stop nearest their homes. Students who ride the activity buses are required to obtain an activity bus pass from the person who is responsible for the activity.
Students are responsible for checking in Guidance to find out which bus to ride and where the bus will stop. PLEASE NOTE: THE ACTIVITY BUS DOES NOT NECESSARILY STOP AT THE SAME PLACE AS THE REGULAR BUS. **ACTIVITY BUS ROUTES
Students must have an activity bus pass, secured from the sponsor or coach in order to ride the activity bus. NO EXCEPTIONS!
The same acceptable bus conduct that is expected on any bus ride is also expected on activity buses. Activity bus transportation is a privilege that can be withdrawn for inappropriate behavior.
