Athletics play a prominent role in student life
As a member of Georgia Independent School Association (GISA), Georgia Independent Christian Athletic Association (GICAA-Varsity Soccer only), and the Metro Atlanta Athletic Conference (MAAC-Middle School only), Brandon Hall fields teams at the Varsity, Junior Varsity, and Middle School levels.
Brandon Hall offers diverse athletic offerings that teach its student athletes life skills such as teamwork, sportsmanship, handling adversity, and time management. We encourage students of all skill levels to participate and embrace the opportunity to be part of a team. Our coaches work hard to grow each athlete in his or her skill level as well as character and push athletes to places they did not know were possible.
At the varsity level, the goal is to field a competitive team, with all team members participating in each game. However, it is understood that certain goals and objectives in terms of playoffs and conference games may preclude everyone from playing.
At the varsity level, the school attempts to maintain a no-cut policy and welcomes all student athletes who exhibit character, sportsmanship, individual skills, and commitment, and maintain average or above grades. However, there is an evaluation period in some sports where a student may be asked to play at the intramural level prior to competitive JV or Varsity levels.
Each varsity sport has specific age criteria and will only be altered after a meeting with the coach and athletic director if the situation is deemed appropriate.
The junior varsity program focuses on growing individual skills and teaching students to work as a member of the team. In sports offered at both the junior varsity and varsity levels, there will be at least a two-day evaluation period to determine what team the athlete will participate in.
The middle school program focuses on growing individual skills and teaching students to work as a member of a team for students between grades 6-8. At the middle school level, all athletes who adhere to the athletic department’s standards of expectations should expect to receive some playing time, although the amount of playing time will not be equal.
