Basketball was one of the original sports at Athens Christian when ACS was established in 1970. The early teams played their games at Pine Tops here in Athens. As the school grew in size, so did the success of the program. Athens Christian quickly became one of the dominate teams in the Georgia Association of Christian Schools, winning many State Championships during the 1970's, 80's and early 90's.
In the mid 1990's, the Eagles moved to the Georgia Independent School Association where they continued to excell, reaching the State Finals in the first year. Finally, the decision was made to move to the Georgia High School Association in 2000. The Eagles continue to have great success, competing for Region Championships and in State Playoffs.
Through the basketball program ACS coaches teach the importance of fundamentals, hard work, and dedication. Our coaching staff looks forward, each season, to teaching young people life lessons in the athletic arena as they help prepare them for their future.
