    You must select a training program and a coach, or your application will not submit. If your training program or coach does not appear, then that means they are still missing required information.  Until the program has submitted all required information and coaches have submitted all required information they will not appear, and a student cannot apply to train with them. FBISD wants to assure all programs and coaches have meet all requirements before we allow a student to apply to train with them. Please contact the Coordinator of Health and PE, if you have any questions. 

    Students can apply to participate in Off Campus PE training for the 2021-22 school year July 20th, 2021 thru August 13th, 2021.  Students will only be able to apply to participate in training offered by an approved Off Campus PE establishment.  The electronic application will be posted to this site from July 20th, 2021 thru Aug 13th, 2021.  It is the student's responsibility to prove that they are completing at least 15 hours of national level competition each week. 

    UPDATE:

    For secondary campuses that operate on a block schedule, students enrolled in Off Campus PE are only approved to leave campus for the class period they are scheduled for Off Campus PE (either 1st period or 7th period).  Students will not leave campus every day to participate in Off Campus PE.  The requirements for practice hours and level of training have not changed.

    Off Campus PE Attendance & Grade Verification Sheets - It is the student's responsibility to turn these sheets in to their campus by the end of each grading period.  Failure to turn in these attendance sheets will result in removal from Off Campus PE and a zero grade.
