SLA Athletics

Athletic Director

Our mission at SLA is to guide, support and encourage our Student-Athletes to strive for excellence academically, athletically and socially. Above all else, we want to produce leaders that serve our community. We coach and instill the following core values that guide and govern our actions on and off the field, and we hope these values become a mainstay in our Student-Athletes lives for years to come. 

Excellence - Teamwork - Respect - Accountability - Integrity





Dear Parent/Guardian:


Attached are four forms required for your child to participate in sports at SLA.

Please be sure all information is complete, accurate and notarized if required.







All students MUST have these four forms completed, notarized and turned in before they are

able to participate in sports at the Student Leadership Academy.  In addition, each student must maintain a semester grade point average of 2.0 in order to participate in school sports. If you have any questions, please feel free to call at 941-485-5551.



Thank you,
