Activities and Athletics
Welcome to the JCPS Activities and Athletics Department. You can go directly to www.jcpsathletics.com for full access to all things athletic in JCPS. You will find helpful forms, schedules, and contact information on our site. Feel free to email our department with questions that you have. Encourage your child to get involved in something extracurricular. Whether your child’s interests lie on the courts and athletic fields, in answering Quick Recall questions, or in debating key issues, we have something for him or her. Talk with the athletic director at your child's school about all of the possibilities.
JCPS currently has 10,000 middle and high school students playing a sport, and many thousands more have participated in a school activity. We currently offer 14 boys’ and 14 girls’ sports throughout the year. Our teams and clubs have experienced great success, but our ultimate goal is to help your child grow as a person and be ready for whatever his or her next step is. Whether students are leaving elementary school for a new middle school adventure or graduating from one of our high schools, coaches and sponsors want to assist them and prepare them for the future. We promote Character First! at all times, and this motto drives all decisions that we make. Come be a part of what we do. We would love to have you!

The Office of Academic Competition is a division of the Department of Academics/Activities/Athletics. This office coordinates the Quick Recall leagues for elementary, middle, and high schools and runs a tournament each year for each of those levels of competition. The Office of Academic Competition also coordinates Future Problem Solving team competitions and chess and debate leagues. It also works with the 15th District Parent Teacher Association (PTA) on the county spelling bee and acts as a liaison with the Kentucky Association of Academic Competition, which organizes the statewide Governor's Cup competition each year.
Information provided includes schedules for league matches, score reports and stat sheets, training information, rules manuals, general information, and reminders. Score reports are updated weekly as the season progresses. Rule books and manuals are available in PDF format.
