Union Academy High School Athletics are governed by the rules and regulations of the North Carolina High School Athletic Association. Union Academy is a member of the Yadkin Valley Conference beginning the Fall of 2021. We offer 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.


Each coach has received training and certification through the National Federation of High Schools including but not limited to CPR, Modeling Behavior, and Concussion Awareness. This also includes national recognition in the "Heads Up" program by all football coaches, which focuses on safe practices and guidelines to prevent concussions. In 2020-21, Union Academy Charter School was nationally recognized 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.


Please visit each team's webpage to view specific sport information, including coach's contact information and game and practice schedules.


Union Academy Cardinal athletic teams CONTINUE to support our community!
