Welcome to our athletics page! Heritage Academy employs the best coaches & faculty in the Valley. Our high school teams participate in the Arizona Interscholastic Association in the 2A conference. Our junior high sports participate in the Canyon Athletic Association.
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 https://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:
Register My Athlete Instructions (SPORTS CLEARANCE INSTRUCTIONS)
Junior High CAA Concussion Student Guide (MUST BE COMPLETED ONE TIME IN JUNIOR HIGH)
High School AIA Concussion Course Instructions (MUST BE COMPLETED ONE TIME IN HIGH SCHOOL)
