Athletics at Sutton
SPORTS SPONSORSHIP BY APS AND PTA
Atlanta Public Schools sponsors six sports at the middle school level. APS funds these sports and provides guidance on their delivery. APS sports games are competitive with other middle schools and are typically available for 7th and 8th-graders only.
The Sutton Middle School PTA supplements these five sports with other offerings, both at the competitive level for 7th and 8th-graders (sometimes 6th if noted for the particular sport that year), and at the intramural level for all grades. The SMS PTA funds these sports and offers guidance on their delivery. The PTA also supports and funds additional teams in the same sports that APS sponsors.
While the financial support for these teams comes from different sources, the delivery of the sports themselves should be consistent for parents and athletes. APS sports will be delivered in the same manner as PTA sports.
