WE ARE THE DANES

Fountain Valley School of Colorado athletics has something for everyone. There are several traditional team competitive sports spanning across the varsity and JV levels as well as competitive climbing, mountain biking and equestrian teams, and an outdoor education program.

In its history, FVS has captured team and individual state titles. Most recently, the boys and girls climbing teams finished second in the 2016 state championships (the boys won the 2012 state title), and the boys soccer team advanced to the 2015 state final. The English riding team has won two national titles in the last eight years and won seven ribbons at the 2016 IEA Zone 8 Finals. Swimmer Eliza Rhee '19 advanced to the swimming and diving state championshps in four events in 2016 (two individual and two as part of an FVS relay team), and the mountain biking team finished sixth in the state.

WHO IS DUKE THE DANE?

Fountain Valley School athletic teams became known as the Great Danes, and later simply the Danes, in the late 1930s. Founding Headmaster Francis Froelicher's dogs, both Great Danes and both named Duke, were the inspiration for the School's official mascot.
