Cocke County Schools offer athletics opportunities to students in grades 6-8 and at the high school level to students across the school district. Our schools are members of the Tennessee Secondary Schools Athletic Association (TSSAA) and operate under rules and guidelines set forth by the state organization.
The Cocke County School System views participation in athletics as an important element in the educational and physical development of our students. Like other extra-curricular activities, athletics allow our students to take ownership of a piece of the educational experience within their schools. Participation in our athletics programs is voluntary. Team membership carries with it responsibilities to teammates, coaches, school, families and the communities they represent.
Both of our high schools, Cocke County High School and Cosby High School have a Director of Athletics who is responsible for the management and oversight of athletics programs at their respective schools. The principals at each of our K-8 schools oversee the athletics programs at their schools. The Elementary Schools are members of the Cocke County Elementary Athletics Association.
