Effective with the 2010-2011 school year,
middle school athletics sponsored by the           TRACK
school district were dropped due to budget         May 5-7
cuts. Once that occurred, many of the high                Boys state track meet @ Jefferson
school booster clubs either set up or began        May 12-14
working with other youth organizations to                 Girls state track meet @ Albany
establish high school “feeder” programs.

It is important to note that the school district
does not have authority over these groups and
whatever league requirements they may have.
All questions related to the league eligibility
requirements and other guidelines should be
directed to the coaches or others involved with
the leagues.

The Paulding County School District, abiding
by the requirements of the Georgia High
School Association, governs all of the sports
activities and eligibility requirements for
student-athletes in grades 9-12.
