FIYA PING PONG PROGRAM DETAILS
Similar to our Cross Country program, in FIYA Ping Pong, students are able to compete on behalf of their school as independent athletes or as part of a team. Please read details below.
As part of our vision, we're grateful to be offering an additional sport to our student athletes to explore because we believe every child should have the equal opportunity to participate in school sports, regardless of their athletic background or skill-level. Every child deserves to excell inside and outside of the classroom, and we recognize FIYA is fortunate to be one of the platforms for them to do so. GET PRACTICING and we look forward to seeing you there!
Now announcing FIYA's latest sports offering, PING PONG!
As part of our mission and commitment in offering a variety of sports for our student athletes, FIYA hosted its very first Ping Pong tournament this March of 2019!
