Happy New Year!

From FUMA Athletics

The Fork Union Athletic Department would like to wish you all a very Happy New Year! We are excited to have all the cadets back and focused on a great, successful 2017. This coming year will be an exciting one, as the department is planning to kick off the year with a new athletics website.

FUMA Athletics has partnered with SIDEARM Sports, the No. 1 provider of college athletics websites, to provide the department with its own micro-site that consists of top news articles, team pages, composite schedules, multimedia and more!

Stay tuned for more information on the launch date of the new home of Fork Union Athletics. A countdown and sneak peak will begin on social media this month.
