Club Sports

Club Sports at Atlanta Classical Academy increase the available avenues of involvement for students, faculty, parents and the community at large. Club sports promote activity, interaction and the opportunity to pursue, share or discover a passion. This kind of pursuit is consistent with the philosophy of the athletics program.

The school has placed all sports sanctioned by the Georgia High School Association (GHSA) and Metro Atlanta Athletic Conference (MAAC) under the direction of the Atlanta Classical Academy Athletics Department. Therefore, those programs are funded by the school’s athletics budget. Club sports that fall outside of the GHSA and MAAC umbrella are self-funded programs that have their operating costs built into a registration fee paid by each participant.

Physical Examination Form

All students must have a completed physical examination, parental consent, and a signed concussion awareness form. Physical examinations are valid for one year. No student will be allowed to participate without the proper paperwork on file. You may access these forms via MyPaymentsPlus

Academic Eligibility

A student may not participate in athletics at Atlanta Classical if they have an F in any subject. Academic eligibility is determined by quarter-ending grades.

COVID-19 Updates

Atlanta Classical Academy will continue to follow GHSA guidelines regarding athletics for the 2021-2022 academic year. For more information regarding health and safety protocol for extracurricular activities, please refer to our most recent Health and Safety Guidelines.

Please note: Our coaches will follow CDC and GHSA safety precautions, but participation in Atlanta Classical athletics does include possible exposure to and illness from infectious diseases including but not limited to MRSA, influenza, and COVID-19. For this reason, ACA requires that all athletes have a participation waiver on file, which can be found through MyPaymentsPlus.

Philosophy of Athletics

Athletics will provide a vehicle by which to teach student-athletes to become virtuous citizens. Atlanta Classical will maintain proper management of a community in which every individual recognizes his or her particular role and performs his or her own task as part of a properly functioning community. Students and coaches will set goals and adhere to them even when faced with obstacles. Students will learn that sport requires courage. The spirit of sport is challenge: the greater the challenge, the greater the victory. During competition, student athletes must remain courteous and honest. They must retain the ability to treat others with honor and civility as well as enjoying the game for its own sake, with proper consideration for fairness, ethics, and respect. By doing so, we will adhere to all governing organizations’ rules and regulations. Student-athletes will also become students of the game in which they are participating. They will gain a life-long appreciation for the game as well as learn how to set and assess realistic goals.
