Brandon Hall’s Approach to Athletics

Brandon Hall is a member of the Georgia Independent School Association (GISA) and the Metro Atlanta Athletic Conference (MAAC-Middle School only). Brandon Hall fields teams at the Varsity, Junior Varsity, and Middle School (when enrollment numbers allow) 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 all levels of athletics at Brandon Hall the goal is for each student athlete to have an excellent experience participating on the athletic team. They will leave with a better understanding of  structure, accountability, and camaraderie with teammates. The student athletes will also have an ability to handle adversity while developing their leadership and athletic skills.

+Varsity Level

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, while adhering to the school and GISA's academic policies. 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. Playing time is not guaranteed at the varsity level. Each coach has a specific criteria that is used to determine playing time. 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.

+ Junior Varsity Level

The JV 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.

+ Middle School Level

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. Middle school teams are formed only when enrollment numbers allow.

Since 2018, Premier Sports Medicine has worked with our student athletes every day after school. In addition to handling injuries, their staff helps with rehab from injuries, organizes sports nutrition workshops for parents and student athletes, provides all student athletes with a concussion baseline test, and many more benefits.

The athletic programs at Brandon Hall offer our students the opportunity to discover themselves outside of the classroom and to learn valuable skills such as sportsmanship, leadership, and teamwork. I believe strongly in encouraging our students of all skill levels to take advantage of the opportunity to participate and compete in high school athletics and experience being a member of a Brandon Hall team. Brandon Hall is equipped with coaches that are committed and dedicated to helping your child learn and grow on and off of the court/field and are prepared to challenge your child to new and exciting heights.

Through all of our athletes’ successes, none of it would be possible without our parents! The Brandon Hall Booster Club’s mission is to maintain the core foundation that supports the athletic programs and create significant opportunities for parents to be involved with Brandon Hall Athletics. From athletic training services to ensure proper safety of our athletes, to ticket and concession stands, to upgrading the weight room space, to help providing livestream opportunities, our Booster Club helps make it possible!
