Positive Athlete Program

Cobb County is participating in the Positive Athlete Program which recognizes athletes for being a positive influence. Please take a moment to visit their website and nominate a positive athlete you know!  There is a link at the bottom of the page for nominations.


What Is Positive Athlete Georgia?

Positive Athlete Georgia is a movement by high-character professional athletes tied to Georgia professional and collegiate sports teams to promote the benefits of “positivity” to young athletes. These athletes believe it is crucial to begin shaping the futures of young athletes for life skills beyond athletic competition and to learn how to give back to their community. Current and former professional athletes are members of this organization, and high school athletes will be invited to join based on being nominated by a coach, school administrator, parent or fan for the annual Georgia Positive High School Athlete Awards.
