Department of Athletics, Physical Education, and Health
The Department of Athletics, Physical Education, and Health promotes lifelong fitness and positive health behaviors that allows students to be healthy both physically and academically.
The Bibb County School District understands that Health and Physical Education along with Athletics is an important part of the educational process. These programs provide opportunities for learning experiences which are difficult to duplicate in other school activities.
The school district offers a comprehensive athletic program throughout the school year for middle school students (grades 6-8) and high school students (grades 9-12). The athletic program teaches attitudes of responsible team play and cooperation. The athletic program also provides a vehicle for learning mental and physical self-discipline, loyalty, personal pride in the school, respect for the rights of others, and the will to win. Participation in athletics the is entirely voluntary and is extended to all academically eligible students who are willing to assume the responsibilities congruent with the privilege.
The six high schools in the district with athletic programs are members of the Georgia High School Association (GHSA). The GHSA governs all aspects of high school sports including eligibility, participation, and competition for member schools.
