Fall sports will be in full swing next week. In order to participate in athletics, you must first be enrolled as a student at First Baptist Academy for the current 2022-2023 school year.

FBA uses Athletic Clearance to streamline all of our athletic paperwork. Any current or incoming 6th-12th grade student wanting to participate in athletics must have an account. Please see the list of requirements and attachments below:

1) Must have an active Athletic Clearance account with all signatures completed and submitted. (Please make sure and follow all the prompts through to end).

2). Must have a current physical on the required EL2 form. Please have it on file and uploaded into their Athletic Clearance account.

3). Must have completed the 3 required videos from NFHS. This is an annual requirement that must be completed every school year. Please upload the 3 certificates into your Athletic Clearance account.

4) If your student athlete is transferring from a non-terminal grade level, please fill out the attached GA4.

5) If your student is a Homeschool Extension student, they must have both EL7 and EL7V. EL7V is the verification form that is filled out by the county. Please email Jeanette Aricia, ArciaJe@collierschools.com with CCPS.

All athletes must have the above listed requirements before they will be cleared. Please verify all files have uploaded correctly.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.


Blessings,

We are looking forward to a great season for the 2022 FBA Golf Team.


If you have a student who is interested in joining our team, please see the details below for tryouts, criteria and what to expect for the season...


Date: Tuesday, August 16


Time: 3:45 p.m.


Location:

Vineyards Country Club

400 Vineyards Blvd

Naples, FL 34119


Each player will walk and play 9 holes keeping score for the tryout.



Here are the criteria for playing on the team.


Golfers are expected to...

  • know the rules of the game;

  • keep their own score;

  • have tournament experience;

  • play 18 holes walking.

Tournament teams will consist of the top 5 lowest scoring golfers. If there are additional golfers who can compete (in the 6th and 7th spots) they will be able to play their way onto the tournament team during the season. Throughout the season, the 5 lowest scoring players will compete in each tournament (these 5 players will be determined based on scores turned in during matches and practices between tournaments).


Practices will take place on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays each week starting August 18 from 3:30 p.m. - 5:30 p.m. Most matches and tournaments are local with a few travel tournaments on the schedule.


ALL Athletic forms and physical forms must be completed AND all students must watch the concussion videos…please turn in to Jessica Wilder – jwilder@fbalions.org. This needs to be completed BEFORE any student is allowed to participate in any Try Out or Practice.
