Philosophy: I emphasize playing the game of baseball with integrity. My focus is on proper fundamentals, hustle, mental and physical toughness and unquestionable sportsmanship. Players should strive to excel in every aspect of the game by preparing themselves physically and mentally, which includes commitment to the team and to the program. It is important to learn how to win and lose with class. Championships are won on the practice field with hard work.

Attention all students interested in playing sports in 2018-19:
2018-19 Incoming 9th graders or transfers! If you are interested in sports at FTHS, please complete the interest form at the link below so we can contact you about summer meeting, tryouts, and programs. Check each team’s page for information on their summer program.
ATHLETE CLEARANCE: Prior to trying out for or practicing with a team, students must submit Athletic Clearance documentation, which includes a sports physical clearance dated within the past 12 months. Online clearance is now available! Begin the online clearance process at https://home.registermyathlete.com/org/CA/00509/ and use the instructions found here. If you are unable to complete clearance online, please contact the school office for a packet at 289-0023 x1016.
Sports Physicals: As part of the athletic clearance process, students must submit a Preparticipation Physical Evaluation Clearance, dated within the past year. If your physical will “expire” during the season of sport, you will need a new physical before that season begins. Sports physicals are valid for one year, therefore we highly recommend scheduling sports physicals annually either in June or August, so you will be cleared for the entire schoolyear and the summer either prior or after.
