The Fall Sports Registration Night is a great time to meet the coaches, gather information about practice times, participation fees, and learn about our athletics program as a whole. The forms needed for Fall Registration can be found on our website at:

Our Family Pass option is for all High School level games (Varsity and JV). We do charge gate admission at any home game. This is a great opportunity to order a pass and not have to pay at each game. It covers any High School game for the Fall Season (Football and Volleyball).
