Heritage Academy-Gateway Athletics
Our #1 goal and focus is to build great athletes! Part of being a great athlete includes knowing what makes a good team and how to have a fun while developing character in youth through both academics and athletics. What makes us different and stand-above the rest when it comes to the Athletic experience? We are passionate about creating multi-sport athletes at our campus. By building great multi-sport athletes, we create great youth who have an inner-drive to become the best all-around person that they can be. Heritage Academy has a unique environment where ANY scholar who wants to participate and compete in a sport can. We make every possible effort to keep a NO CUT policy and there is a team for your athlete whether they are an all-star or a rookie! Heritage Academy employs the best coaches & faculty in the Valley. We invite you to come watch one of our games and meet our coaches and athletes to see what makes us stand above the rest.

4 Required Items for ALL athletes:
There are 4 required items to become eligible to compete as an Athlete at our campus for all athletic contests:
1-Heritage Academy has an academic eligibility requirement in order to compete. Here is the wording from our handbook: “Academic Eligibility to Compete: Scholar Athlete grades are checked on Mondays before 4th hour (or the first day of the school week) during the sports season. Players must be passing with 70% or above in each of their individual classes to participate in the athletic contest, or to practice after school, for that week. Eligibility, therefore, is determined on a week-to-week basis and is checked on Mondays but is valid for Tuesday through the following Monday.”
2-Athletic Packet 2018-2019 This packet includes a current sports physical by a medical professional. Sports physicals are good (per our league bylaws) for twelve calendar months. The sports physical cannot expire during the season they are participating in. Our recommendation is to get a physical during the summer and then it will be good for the entire upcoming school year. Once every part of the Athletic Packet is completed, please scan or take a picture of it (please no printed copies of the packet) and email it directly to: email@example.com
3-CAA Concussion Course Student Guide. Must be completed by every athlete for this 18-19 school year prior to any participation per our league bylaws. Please watch the training video and answer all questions (aprox 30 minutes). Please scan or take a picture of the certificate once it has been completed and email it to Coach Godfrey at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Junior High athletes will only have to take it once during junior high (either 7th or 8th grade year). High School athletes will only have to take it once during their 9-12th grade years. Here is a direct link to where they register to take the course: https://learn.barrowneuro.org/login/index.php. There is an enrollment key that is required for the training: It is CAA18! If your 12-year-old scholar athlete is having issues registering for a username/password on the link above, the following concussion training will be acceptable for this school year: https://nfhslearn.com/courses/61151/concussion-in-sports
