ACA Club Sports

Parent-led club sports at Atlanta Classical Academy increase the available avenues of athletic involvement for students, faculty, parents and the community at large. They 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 Department. This policy assumes that Atlanta Classical Academy students would rather participate in a club sport that has some level of affiliation with the school versus involvement in the same activity without school affiliation.

The school has placed all sports sanctioned by the Georgia High School Association (GHSA) 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 umbrella are self-funded programs that have their operating costs built into a registration fee paid by each participant. This means that field space, uniforms, practice schedules, and games are managed by an ACA faculty sponsor and parent volunteer outside of the Athletics Department.

Club Sports must have a club sport advisor or coach from the Atlanta Classical Academy faculty and/or staff. The sports club will be approved by the Athletics Department and the administration. The club sport advisor/coach will be the point of contact and source of all information regarding their program. No discounts will be offered for club sports.


Future Club Sports at ACA  – Qualifications

Submit the following details:

Find a Faculty or Staff member to sponsor and coach the club (note: this is fully facilitated outside of the Athletics Department). The faculty and staff sponsor will be responsible for:

  • Identifying field space and finding local schools to compete in matches where applicable. Working to purchase uniforms, communicate with parents, and organize practices and games via Teamsnap.

  • Setting the sports fee that will cover the cost of the club, this includes field cost, uniform cost, coach stipend, and league fee.

Once a faculty and staff sponsor has been identified and agreed to these responsibilities, please formally submit their name and club sport request to

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.
