Athletics

FWCD’s athletic tradition is renowned. Dynamic Physical Education, which includes lessons focused on fitness development, coordination, body management and game-playing, starts immediately in kindergarten. In Middle School, students pursue a sampling of athletic endeavors in a physical education developmental program that introduces them to the sports offered in the FWCD athletic program, and competitive, interscholastic sports begin in seventh grade. Upper School students may choose from 23 varsity sports. Athletics not only promotes healthy bodies, it teaches perseverance, sacrifice, discipline, sportsmanship and teamwork—valuable tools to take into adulthood.

FWCD varsity sports include baseball, basketball, cheerleading, cross country, field hockey, football, golf, lacrosse, soccer, softball, swimming, tennis, track and field, volleyball and wrestling, divided into three sports seasons: fall, winter and spring. Fourth-grade, Middle School and Upper School students may also participate in ballet to fulfill their athletics requirement.

Varsity teams compete in the Southwest Preparatory Conference, which comprises 16 schools, 15 from Texas and one from Oklahoma.
