Mission of the Birmingham City School System Athletic Program

The Birmingham Athletic Department’s Mission is to provide Quality Sports Programs that Support Academic Achievement for all Student- Athletes in a safe, secure and nurturing environment.


Birmingham City Schools Athletics Program (BCS) is an essential component of the district’s holistic educational mission. Our philosophy embraces the concept of student-athletes being students first, as well as the principles of fair play, sportsmanship, and gender equity in relation to Title IX.

As member schools of the Alabama High School Athletic Association, BCS athletics is committed to complying with all rules and regulations of the AHSAA in the conduct of its interscholastic athletics department. We believe that participation in sports provides a wealth of opportunities and experiences which assist students in personal growth and accomplishments while promoting student-athlete welfare.
