Activities and Athletics

Federal Way Public Schools believes activities and athletics are important choices to be offered in a comprehensive and challenging educational experience for all scholars. The goals of the activities and athletic programs are to teach sportsmanship, teamwork, and respect for fellow competitors, officials, opposing team members, and opposing team fans. Policy 2151 and Procedure 2151P

To this end, the district holds the following beliefs:

  1. Participation in any activity and/ or athletic program is contingent upon the scholar’s achievement of required academic standards and regular attendance in all classes.
  2. Scholars participating in any activity and/or athletic program will be focused on learning and improvement, both as an individual and as a member of a team or group.
  3. Activity advisors and coaches will teach, practice, and model respect, responsibility, and integrity. Scholar participants will demonstrate these qualities.
  4. Activity advisors and coaches will include families as partners in the education and development of their scholars.
  5. The purpose and goals of all activity and/or athletic programs will be clearly defined and articulated to scholars and parent/guardian(s).
  6. All Washington Interscholastic Activities Association (WIAA) and North Puget Sound League (NPSL) athletic requirements and standards are in place to assist scholar athletes with player safety and eligibility in the athletic handbook which is found on the district website. Please request an Athletic Handbook from your school’s athletic director.

In order to represent our community, school, and themselves in interscholastic competition or performance, scholars will be responsible, concerned about their health, and refrain from using drugs, alcohol, and/or any tobacco products (including e-cigarettes and vaping).


Each scholar develops cultural confidence as a learner and rigorously applies his/her knowledge and skills to new and different experiences.

Extracurricular activities provide a channel for reinforcing the lessons learned in the classroom, offering scholars the opportunity to apply academic skills in a realworld context, and are thus considered part of a wellrounded education.
