    Extension: 83107 

    Welcome to the FDHS Department of Athletics. We are dedicated to fostering both physical and mental development of our students as a part of our athletic programs.  When participating in or attending an event we expect our students to represent themselves as young adults.  It is our hope through mental and physical development our students can fully benefit from the opportunities awaiting them in post-secondary education and training program. 

    Steps for being approved to play:

     

    1. Get an up to date Sports Physical
    2. Complete all registration items and upload a scanned copy of your physical to formreleaf.com
    3. Await approval status on formreleaf. (You should receive an email notification. You may need to check your spam folder if you don't see it in your inbox.)
    4. Status must be Approved (Once everything is completed the athletic director reviews everything and gives the final approval. This cannot be done by a coach)

     

    All documents you may need:  

    Eligibility  

    As with any extra curricular activity in PG County all athletes must meet academic guidelines.  Students must maintain a GPA of 2.0 or higher to participate.  Any final quarter grades prior to or during the season determine a player's eligibility.  

     

    Tryouts & Interest Meetings

    Each sport has individual tryout dates and times.  If the information is not provided on the sport's web page please contact the coach directly.  VERY IMPORTANT - All student athletes must complete their profile on formreleaf.com, provide a printed copy of the Medical Card and upload their complete Sports Physical

    We also welcome submissions of pictures and short videos of our athletic events.  If you would like to share media with the Douglass Eagle family please email it to Angela.Alcain@pgcps.org.

    Recruiting Information

    Parents,

    Rick Wire, recruiting guru, will be presenting at Gwynn Park HS on Thursday May 24th at 7 pm. If you have a student-athlete interested in playing sports at the next level you really need to attend this presentation. Rick Wire presented at Frederick Douglass HS back in December 2017 and everyone who attended learned a lot about the recruiting business. The presentation is free of charge.
