TSSAA offers Academic Achievement Award certificates to all TSSAA and TMSAA member schools. The program is based on grade point average of students and teams participating in fall sports, winter sports, spring sports and cheerleading. The forms should be filled out and sent to our office at the conclusion of the semester in which the sport is played and be based on the grade point averages at the conclusion of that particular semester. We will then send the certificates to your school.
The team awards are based on the team’s collective GPA. A collective team GPA or 3.0 to 3.24 will entitle the team to receive the Outstanding certificate and a collective team GPA of 3.25 to 4.0 will entitle a team to receive the Distinguished certificate. The school will receive a certificate recognizing the team and each member of the team will also receive a certificate. The Individual Academic Achievement certificate will allow any student-athelte who earns a GPA or 3.5 or above to receive a certificate. Therefore, if a student participates in more than one sport, he or she may receive a certificate for each sport in which he or she participates.
