Apprentice Academy Athletics Update

Athletic Dept Logo

The traditional sports calendar for high school athletics is pretty much out the window this year. The NCHSAA has changed the calendar, adjusted the length of the seasons, and limited the number of games that can be played. This causes some difficulties for us in that many of the teams we were scheduled to play are now limited to only playing teams in their conference due to the number of games limitation. Additionally, for various reasons, we are not going to be able to field as many teams this year as I had originally hoped. Despite those barriers we will do all we can to field as many teams as we can and schedule as many games as we can. We will also be starting some practices and skill development sessions for some of our teams beginning 1 October, look for more information soon on specifics.

I want everyone to  be able to make an informed decision before signing up for a particular sport and then end up not being able to participate due to some kind of conflict with other things you have going on. Below are the teams we will be able to offer and the respective season dates for those teams. Once you have had a chance to review please fill out the updated sports interest form and choose the sports that you are planning to participate in.

 Also, just a reminder that if you have not already done so you will need to have the sports eligibility and participation forms packet turned in prior to engaging in any team related activities. More information on that can be found on the athletics page of the school website: https://www.aahsnc.org/athletics

If anyone has any connection to youth high school age teams, be it a school or otherwise, that might be looking for games for any of our sports please have them contact me at richard.kenner@aahsnc.org. If you have any questions of need any clarification on anything feel free to contact me at the same email address or by calling (980) 313 - 8610 press 7 on the automated  system.
