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. Our Facebook page is designed to celebrate nominees and new members of the organization. Coaches in youth sports leagues in Georgia are already naming “Positive Athletes of the Game” each game as a way to emphasize the importance of having a positive attitude.
