For over 90 years, the FHSAA – through the cooperative efforts of its member schools – has provided opportunities for high school students in Florida to participate on a fair and equitable basis in interscholastic athletic programs that produce vital educational benefits.
The FHSAA sponsors championship programs through which 131 teams and more than 1,000 student-athletes are crowned state champions in 30 sports each year. Through participation in these athletic programs, an estimated almost 800,000 students annually are extended opportunities to receive lessons in leadership, sportsmanship and citizenship . . . lessons not normally taught in the classroom.
