Founders offers a variety of sports for male and female student athletes in 6th-12th grade. We also offer non-competitive sports through our extracurricular clubs. For high school sports, we participate in the Honor Charter Athletic League (HCAL). For middle school sports, we participate in TCSAAL and TAIAO, a state-wide academic and athletic league for charter schools. Information regarding their programs may be on the leagues' websites. Our student athletes are required to complete an annual physical prior to trying out for a sport. We also require each student athlete and their parent/guardian to read and sign the Athletic Code of Conduct which can be found in our FCA Family Handbook. If you are interested in participating in one of the following sports, please email one of our Athletic Directors, Coach Munoz or Coach Chambless.

Physicals and Participation Forms

Before a student can participate in Founders Classical Academy’s after-school athletics program, the student must undergo a physical exam with a licensed physician, and his or her family must complete several sports participation forms. Physicals must be passed once every calendar year, whereas sports participation forms must be completed each school year.

If you are the parent of a student in 5th-12th grade who intends to compete in athletics, please schedule your student's physical during the summer. The required athletics forms are available to athletes through TeamSnap. You may also click here to download a copy.
