The Alabama High School Athletic Association (AHSAA), located in Montgomery, acts as the governing body responsible for overseeing intermural athletics and activity programs in the state of Alabama.


Since 1924, the AHSAA has been associated with the National Federation of State High School Associations, a renowned organization in high school sports.

To comply with a court order regarding athletics, the AHSAA merged with the Alabama Interscholastic Athletic Association in 1968, creating a unified high school athletic association for the state of Alabama. It is worth mentioning that the AIAA used to govern athletics exclusively in racially segregated African-American schools.

The AHSAA takes pride in sponsoring state championships programs in an array of sports for both boys and girls. These include Baseball, Softball, Basketball, Football, Cross Country, Soccer, Swimming, Diving, Track and Field, Tennis, Volleyball, Wrestling, and Cheerleading. Furthermore, they also have a dedicated championship for Indoor Track.

Although the AHSAA is the principal organization that regulates high school sports in Alabama, with exclusive authorization for public schools, it is not the sole entity of its kind. The Alabama Independent School Association assumes responsibility for overseeing athletics in approximately 40 private schools statewide. Additionally, there are other smaller organizations like the Alabama Christian Sports Conference and the Alabama Christian Athletic and Academic Association that govern sports in Christian schools and home schools, primarily focusing on eight-man football.

The current person in charge is Alvin Briggs.

Locations for Championship

The AHSAA organizes prestigious championship events in various places all around the state of Alabama. Currently, the championships take place in the following areas:

  • Football ("Super 7") switches between three stadiums in a rotation: Protective Stadium in Birmingham, Bryant–Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa, and Jordan–Hare Stadium in Auburn
  • Basketball – Legacy Arena in Birmingham
  • Baseball – Paterson Field & Riverwalk Stadium in Montgomery
  • Cross Country – Oakville Indian Mounds, located in Lawrence County
  • Indoor Track and Field – Birmingham Crossplex, situated in Birmingham
  • Softball – Lagoon Park, found in Montgomery
  • Soccer – John Hunt Park, situated in Huntsville
  • Swimming – James E. Martin Aquatics Center, located in Auburn
  • Tennis – Decatur, Mobile, and Montgomery

  • Volleyball – Birmingham CrossPlex in Birmingham
  • Wrestling – Von Braun Center in Huntsville (regular tournament); Bill Harris Arena at the Birmingham CrossPlex in Birmingham (duals tournament)
  • Cheerleading – Wallace State Community College in Hanceville


The establishment of the AHSAA dates back to the year 1921. The initial group of schools that became charter members of this association consisted of diverse institutions, including Abbeville, Albany, Aliceville, Andalusia, Auburn, Baldwin County, Barton Academy, Bessemer City, Bibb County, Buhl, Carrollton, Chambers County, Charles Henderson, Chilton County, Clio, Coffeeville, Colbert County, Conecuh County, Cullman, Dadeville, Demopolis, Dothan, Elmore County, Enterprise, Escambia County, Evergreen, Fayette County, Geneva County, Georgiana, Gordo, Greensboro, Greenville, Guntersville, Hackleburg, Hamilton, Headland, Highland Home, Jackson, Lamar County, Lauderdale County, Lincoln, Lowndes County, and Marbury. These diverse schools, each with their unique characteristics and rich histories, contributed to the formation of the AHSAA and continue to be an integral part of it.
