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 program are to teach sportsmanship, teamwork, and respect for fellow competitors, officials, opposing team members, and opposing team fans.   Policy 2151 and Procedure 2151P

    COVID-19: As we transition into full athletic activities for the 2021- 2022 school year, FWPS will follow the recommendations from the Washington State Department of Health (DOH).  We will continue to monitor and provide updates when they become available.

    2021 – 2022 middle school and high school schedules are posted on the FWPS Athletics page. link:  https://www.fwps.org/site/default.aspx?PageID=566

    FWPS will continue to pay close attention to the COVID-19 rates in the region, and work in partnership with other districts in the NPSL.

Updated Sport and Fitness Guidance

  • We are committed to keeping you informed around the health and safety measures we have in place for our scholar athletes. To ensure the safest environment, we follow the guidance put forth by the Washington State Department of Health. On Tuesday, July 6, 2021, the Washington State Department of Health (DOH) issued updated Sports and Fitness Guidance: 

    Outdoor Athletics: 

    • Masks are no longer required outdoors; however, unvaccinated individuals should wear face coverings outdoors in crowded public settings, including sporting events, where there is decreased ability to consistently maintain physical distance between non-household members. 
    • People are not required to wear face coverings while engaged in outdoor training or competition in any type of sport. 

    Indoors: 

    • All individuals are required to continue to wear masks, regardless of vaccination status, indoors in K-12 schools, childcare facilities, camps, or other youth settings in areas where children are present or expected to be present. 

    Federal Way Public Schools will follow the updated DOH guidance and not require masks outdoors for athletic activities. However, masks are still required once you enter indoors for any reason (weight room, gyms, restroom, locker room, training room, etc.); at FWPS masks continue to be required indoors, regardless of vaccination status, when children are present.   

    In addition to aligning to DOH guidance, this updated mask guidance aligns with our neighboring school districts (Auburn, Kent, Highline, Kent, and Renton) as well.  We will keep you updated on any changes from the DOH as they come forward.  

    Thank you for all that you do for our scholars in keeping them safe.
