Welcome to our athletics page! Heritage Academy employs the best coaches & faculty in the Valley. Part of being the best includes knowing what makes a good team and how to have a 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 awesome scholars are excelling on the court/field and off the court/field.
Some good reads recommended by athletic staff:
1. “Coaching from the Sidelines”
2. Heritage Academy strongly encourages and recommends that all of our Athletes be Multi-Sport Athletes http://changingthegameproject.com/the-race-to-nowhere-in-youth-sports/
Below are the forms that both scholars and parents need to review and fill out before participating in sports.

As a reminder, 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 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.”
Mandatory material for all sport participants:
- Concussion in Sports<<(click there). Must be watched prior to any participation. Please watch videos and answer all questions (aprox 30 minutes). Then either download the certificate to your computer and email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or print the certificate and give to your coach.
Interested in coaching at Heritage? Please send a resumé and email to Athletic Director, Kyle Leybas: email@example.com.
