The mission of the Fort Worth ISD Athletic Department is to ensure and enhance the quality of life for youth by providing competitive activities.
As your children become involved in Fort Worth ISD Athletics, they will experience some of the most rewarding moments of their lives.
Research shows that athletic participation provides girls and boys with motivation for academic performance and physical activity, a structure to teach time management and self-discipline and a means to develop self-esteem. Student-athletes benefit from a positive sports experience. The Fort Worth ISD Athletic Department provides this information for parents to foster understanding between you and your child's coach, and to ensure an enjoyable season for your child.
