Union Academy Athletics Mission Statement

To provide student athletes with the opportunity to develop their character and athletic abilities in an environment which challenges athletes to support the overall mission of Union Academy through sportsmanship, commitment, teamwork, integrity, and high academic standards.
Per state requirements, in order for students to participate in any athletic workouts, tryouts, practices or contests during the current academic year, an UPDATED PHYSICAL and COMPLETED ATHLETIC PACKET must be on file. Please make sure all appropriate paperwork is up to date and submitted through the Athletic Clearance website (directions posted to the right).  Direct any questions with this process to your child's coach, Cameron Hudson, Athletic Trainer or Michelle Phifer, Athletic Director.
In an effort to reduce the Earth's carbon footprint, the Union Academy Athletic Department has moved to an online portal for collection of the annual NCHSAA required athletic packet.  Instructions for submitting the athletic packet, the physical form, as well as a link to the "Athletic Clearance" site can be found to the right.
Please do NOT submit any athletic paperwork to your child's homeroom teacher or
to the business office.

Union Academy Middle School Athletics is governed by the rules and regulations of the North Carolina Department of Instruction, followed by the North Carolina High School Athletic Association.  Union Academy is a member of the Carolina Beltway Conference and offers a wide variety of male, female and coed teams during the fall, winter and spring seasons. For team participation, annual membership in the Cardinal Athletic Club is required.


Although not mandated by NCDPI, Union Academy takes the extra step in providing a safe learning environment to our middle school athletes as we prepare them for the next level of play during High School. Each coach has received training and certification through the National Federation of High Schools in courses that include but not limited to CPR, Modeling Behavior, and Concussion Awareness. In 2020-21, Union Academy Charter School was recognized nationally as a Level 1 Honor School by the NFHS for having over 90% of the coaching staff earn certification in additional courses offered through the program.
