The Tribe

Mission

The mission of The Tribe is to heartily support the TFS athletic program, coaches, teams, and team members with our presence, by being role models of GREAT character, by promoting the teams in our community, by assisting in FUNctional tasks, by learning about athletic issues, and by FUNDraising to provide excellent and memorable resources.

Support

The TFS standard is to Cheer FOR, not against!  MS and HS athletics are to be fun while developing life lessons, so we ask our “Tribe” to reflect these proactive traits to our students and to our guests while being loud, proud, and positive.  Attendance at contests is of utmost importance to athletes.

Fan Pledge

By entering, I agree to Cheer FOR, Not Against!  I understand profanity, degrading remarks, and intimidating actions will not be tolerated and will result in the lost privilege of attendance.  Spectators are not allowed to enter the competition area.
No artificial noisemakers! No Pets!
