NEW NCAA Division I Initial-Eligibility Academic Requirements
There are new requirements for college-bound student-athletes enrolling full time at an NCAA Division I college or university on or after August 1, 2016.
Click on the following link to see the new requirements:
*Mandatory Concussion Educaton Training*
Parents and student athletes must take concussion education training before sports tryouts. All student athletes and at least one parent or guardian will be required to attend a concussion education session provided by their respective middle and high schools. Attendance at one of these sessions is required before a student will be allowed to try out for any sport. Participation in the concussion education session is mandated by state law (Virginia Code 22.1-271.5). A concussion is a brain injury that is characterized by an onset of impairment of cognitive and/or physical functioning, and is caused by a blow to the head, face, or neck, or to the body that causes a sudden jarring of the head (e.g., a helmet to the head, being
knocked to the ground). A concussion can occur with or without loss of consciousness.
Prince William County Public Schools supports the need to ensure that its staff, students, and the community are aware of the seriousness of brain injuries and concussions and how they can affect the student’s
abilities in the educational setting. In April 2011, the Prince William County School Board adopted a concussion policy that meets the Virginia Code. The law requires parents and students to sign a form attesting that they received training prior to any level of student participation in athletics. Athletes should attend a session at the high school they attend. The meeting will start promptly at 7:00 p.m. and no one will be allowed to enter once a session has started.
* Please see the FPHS Athletic Trainer website for dates and locations.

In an effort to support the FP Booster Club, it is strongly encouraged that all members of the volleyball program have a parent join as a member of the booster club. The cost is only $5.
Please print the "booster membership form" from the group files section and return it to Coach Davila or mail it into the school.
