2020-2021 Heritage Academy Athletics
Welcome to our athletics page! Heritage Academy employs the best coaches & faculty in Arizona. Part of being the best includes knowing what makes a good team and how to have fun while developing character in youth through academics and athletics. We invite you to come take a tour, meet our staff, come watch a game, and see how our scholars are excelling in the classroom and in competition.
We compete in the CAA (http://azcaapreps.com)
Below are the forms that both scholars and parents need to review and fill out before participating in sports.
1.) 2020 21 Canyon Athletic Association – Athlete physical form
a.) CAA Physical Voucher 20-21 – Voucher for a $25 physical at FastMed Urgent Care. Locations are listed on the physical form.
2.) Athletic-Packet_Maricopa-2020-2021 – This packet needs to be printed and returned to campus. It consists of emergency contact information and consent to treat, parent and athlete code of contact, class fee acknowledgement, transportation permission, insurance information, concussion form, and ECA tax credit information.
3.) Concussion in Sports – Must be watched prior to any participation. Please watch the video and answer all questions (aprox 30 minutes). Then either download the certificate to your computer and email to our AD at firstname.lastname@example.org, or print the certificate and give it to your coach.
4.) Heritage Academy Academic Eligibility – As a reminder, Heritage Academy has an academic eligibility requirement in order to compete. From our handbook: “Academic Eligibility to Compete: Scholar Athlete grades are checked at or before lunchtime every Monday during the sports season. Players must be passing with 70% or above in each of their individual classes to participate in the game/meet, or to practice after school, for that week. Eligibility, therefore, is determined on a week-to-week basis.”
Below are some articles recommended by our athletic staff:
1. “Coaching from the Sidelines”
2. Heritage Academy strongly encourages and recommends that all of our Athletes be Multi-Sport Athletes https://changingthegameproject.com/the-race-to-nowhere-in-youth-sports/
