Sonoran Foothill Athletics

    The following information is from the Deer Valley Unified School District:


    Deer Valley Unified School District (DVUSD) provides its middle school student athletes with multiple opportunities to compete throughout the school year.

    In 2022-23, we changed the order of our seasons so that we could align with our neighboring districts to offer more athletic opportunities for our students. Not only do we have the opportunity for post-season regional championships, but we now are opening up in season tournaments hosted by high schools throughout all three districts (Dysart, Peoria and DVUSD).

    We also needed to make a change to the order of our seasons due to the fact that we were experiencing a shortage of game officials in previous years when the sports seasons coincided with the high school seasons. By making this change, we had one of our best years in regard to official coverage!

    Both the high school athletic directors and the district athletic directors believe that the current seasonal format is best for the long term development of our athletic programs.

    The continuation of our current season schedule will allow us to continue and grow our partnership with the Peoria and Dysart Districts, as well as allow us to continue to build our connections between the middle schools and high schools within our own district. As our middle schools compete outside of the high school seasons, this will allow for high school coaches and assistant coaches to become more involved with our middle school programs.

    As we continue to move forward in partnership with our high schools and neighboring districts, our goal is to provide as many athletic opportunities for our students within DVUSD. We look forward to a great 2023-24 school year!

    Please read ALL REQUIREMENTS below.  Student athletes will not be able to participate if they have not met all the requirements. 


    Before an athlete can participate in any way (including tryouts) they must have all paperwork completed and on file. DVUSD uses the Register My Athlete (RMA) website to submit all physicals and other required paperwork prior to athletic participation. RMA will also include a link to a required Brainbook Concussion Course that each athlete must complete.  When registering for the course in Brainbook, select the high school your athlete will most likely attend in 9th grade.  Also remember to electronically save the course completion form showing successful completion of the course as you will need to upload this form in RMA. No forms will be accepted in person. Please follow the link below.
