All ATC nominations for the 2019-20 school year will be submitted through Home Campus under the "FHSAA Forms" tab.

  • Select "Academic Team Champion"
  • Select "Add New" 
  • Choose team
  • Ensure GPAs are rounded off to the nearest thousandth (e.g., 3.214)
  • Double check that there are no duplicates on your roster

1. The team must have committed to participate in FHSAA state series competition in its nominating sport and honored that commitment by participating in the district tournament or meet.

2. The team must have at least a 3.0 cumulative grade point average on an unweighted 4.0 scale (A=4, B=3, C=2, D=1).

3. The following minimum number of team members has been adopted for individual sports: bowling = 5; cross country = 5; golf = 4; swimming & diving = 9; tennis = 5; track & field = 14; weightlifting = 6; wrestling = 8.

4. Each sport will also have a maximum number of team members allowed.  Home Campus will automatically pull the top GPA's from your roster.

5. All classes for which high school credit has been awarded or could have been awarded must be considered for determining the cumulative GPA.

6. Boys and girls teams must be separate (e.g, boys soccer and girls soccer).

7. Ties for first place will be broken on the basis of total number of team members having a 4.0 GPA, 3.75-3.99 GPA, 3.5-3.74 GPA, 3.25-3.49 GPA and 3.0-3.24 GPA.  Each level will be considered in descending order until the tie is broken.

8. Only student-athletes’ GPAs will be used.  Team managers, statisticians or student trainers will not be included when computing the team GPA.

9. Fall teams use the previous spring semester cumulative unweighted GPA.  Winter and spring teams use the first semester cumulative unweighted GPA.

10. GPAs must be rounded off to the nearest thousandth (e.g., 3.214).

11. Call the Communications Department at (352) 372-9551 ext. 170 if you have any questions.
