The AHS WayThe Patriot Athletics Heritage

When AHS student athletes wear the Patriot jersey, they become part of a rich legacy of Christian athletics. We believe Christian-focused athletics to be one of the most powerful tools to accomplish both victories on the field and in the heart—with becoming better disciples and servants of Jesus Christ the paramount goal.

Before joining the UHSAA, AHS maintained membership in several leagues designed for charter schools and private schools. The Patriots saw success in those leagues, winning many state championships in a variety of sports. In 2018, AHS joined the UHSAA and has already collected both individual and state titles, region championships, and individual accolades across all of our sports. We continue to pursue athletic excellence for our more than 40 teams across nine sports thanks to our top-tier facilities (completely donor funded) and mission-minded coaches who are among the best in their field.

For an in-depth look at our philosophy, principles and practices for our extracurricular programs, please read our handbook, The AHS Way.

You can also check out this video to see what our student-athletes have to say about our athletic programs.

We have a number of high-level, seasoned coaches who instill not only skills and drive, but they also focus on developing Christian character through athletics. Sports offer a unique opportunity to fulfill the mission of AHS to develop the heart, mind and body of our students, and we are excited for students to take advantage of these fantastic programs.”

Do you have questions, comments, commendations, or concerns about athletics at AHS? Please see the descriptions of the athletics administrative team below to determine who to contact.

Sportsmanship at AHS

AHS fans are expected to adhere to the highest levels of sportsmanship, grace, and fellowship at both home and away games. Adult AHS fans should model this behavior as an example to our younger fans. We should cheer for our team and not against the other team. We should not direct negative comments to anyone, including referees, coaches, players, or other fans. PLAYERS play. COACHES coach. OFFICIALS officiate. FANS lift. Always remember the purpose of AHS athletics is to teach life lessons that help our student athletes build a foundation for life as disciples of Jesus Christ. The pursuit of excellence is part of that foundation, yet when viewed with this perspective, “winning the game” is put into its proper place.

Full Participation Policy

The AHS full participation policy means that all students will have the opportunity to participate on a team each season. In most cases, student athletes will be able to participate in their preferred sport. But due to limitations to team size, coaches’ bandwidth, and to provide a positive experience for players, student athletes may be offered an alternative sport to participate in. In the fall, the alternative sport is cross country. In the winter and Spring, the alternative sport is Track and Field. Depending on the team situation, a coach may form a JV or developmental team. Playing time is an earned privilege, not a right. Though a student may make a team, he or she may or may not see significant playing time in games. Coaches make these decisions based on what is in the best interest of the team.

The Full Participation Policy also prohibits students from participating in both a drama production and a sport in the same season. Students may, if both coaches agree, participate in two sports in the same season. The may also do a sport and also ballroom, choir, or orchestra. For full details, click here.

Steps to Join an Athletic Team at AHS

  • Get a current sports physical/health exam. This Health Exam and Consent Form may be taken to your physician for them to sign.
    • For UHSAA sports teams, the health exam must be dated on or after March 10th for the upcoming school year and should be completed before tryouts.
    • For non-UHSAA sports teams, the health exam must be dated within a year from the start of the sports season to be valid and should be completed before tryouts.
  • Register your athlete
  • Make payment
    • All athletes for every league can pay via Payment Links on Veracross. Payment may be made after tryouts are completed and team rosters have been created.
  • Attend tryouts. Tryouts enable coaches to evaluate athlete talent and create their Varsity and JV teams, get to know the players, and begin establishing relationships with the athletes. Often there is no gap between tryouts and when practices begin. Cross Country and Track & Field do not have official tryouts as they primarily rely on individual performance and time trials.
  • Team selection will be announced by the coach following tryouts.
  • Team schedules will be found on the Veracross calendar and will also be communicated to families through the coach. Teams usually create a “team chat” using apps like Ollie, GroupMe, or WhatsApp where the most up-to-date information is shared.
  • Attend the parent meeting. Parents should make every effort to attend the parent meeting at the beginning of the season.
