Athletics

Athletics at Tuscaloosa Academy play an essential role in the advancement of the school’s mission, providing experiences that help our student-athletes develop physically, emotionally and intellectually. Our athletic department exists to support our student-athletes in their holistic development. Student-athletes are encouraged to passionately compete and to pursue athletic excellence, but it is imperative that good sportsmanship prevail at all times and that the educational values of competition be emphasized.

Participation in athletics is an integral part of the student-athlete’s educational experience at the Academy. That participation carries with it responsibilities to the student-athlete’s team, the student body and to the greater TA community.

Among the Academy’s core values is the statement expressing our belief in “creating an environment that helps students reach their full potential.” In the athletic program, we believe this value encourages us to work together to advance what is best for our students. We believe strongly in the value of multi-sport athletes and students who are not defined merely by their participation in athletics. We will work to promote the entire TA community throughout our athletic department.
