Falcon athletics provides opportunities for our Fort Myers and Southwest Florida students to get active in a safe, fun, and positive environment!

Playing on a team sport is beneficial in many ways as it helps to improve a player’s physical fitness, character development, and socialization skills.

Our athletic programs foster teamwork, discipline, sportsmanship, and respect for opponents and officials. While contests are quite competitive, sportsmanship and good behavior are always our highest priority.
