Welcome to Spartan Athletics!
There is a rich tradition of athletic participation and success at Athens Academy! Currently, we offer twenty varsity team programs along with seventeen junior varsity and fifteen middle school teams in twelve different sports and compete as a member of the Georgia High School Athletic Association. We have received the prestigious GHSA Class A Director’s Cup in 2000-01, 2002-03 and 2004-05, which is given annually to the top athletic program in the state. A component of our success is the award winning physical education department and its programs which has been recognized nationally for the past decade. Our coaches have significant experience within their sport and are committed to providing opportunities for student-athletes to develop their potential in a competitive yet nurturing environment. We invite you to explore our website to discover the myriad of successes experienced by our student-athletes and coaches.
The following statement has been included in many of our publications over the years, as Athens Academy believes it is an important reminder for coaches, students, and families as they prepare for athletic participation.
"We arrange participation for each athlete appropriate to age, development, ability, and interest. Varsity competition emphasizes winning, but is done in a framework that allows athletes to feel successful by meeting personal performance goals. The sub-varsity level prepares athletes for varsity play while providing as much participation as possible for each team member.
So that our athletes receive quality instruction with a realistic opportunity for playing time, the size of teams in some sports is limited. Students "try out" for teams. Although there is no guarantee that a student will be selected for a specific team, the number and variety of offerings provide many opportunities for each player."
If you have questions, concerns, or ideas that will help us improve the athletic experience for each student athlete contact Kevin Petroski, Athletic Director

With coaches, student athletes, and parents working together, we all look forward to another successful year of Spartan Athletics.
