Purpose
The purpose of the Regions Bank Directors Cup is to recognize those athletic departments in all GHSA classifications who have excelled and shown superior performance.

The Award
Since the 1999-2000 school year, the GADA has presented this award annually. Award-winning schools will receive a Regions Bank Directors Cup Trophy and a Wall Banner. Beginning with the 2002-2003 school year, the award will be presented to the top male program, top female program, and top overall program in each classification.

Scoring Structure
Twenty-five GHSA sports will be counted in the standings each school year. Each school’s eight highest scoring sports for each gender shall be counted in the Regions Bank Directors Cup Standings. Co-ed sports have been categorized based on majority number of participants.

There are no ties for cup winners. In the event of a points tie a winner will be determined by the number of championships won. Then by the number of runners up in championships (if needed). Then by third places (if needed) etc…

Effective immediately (3/28/13), full points will be given to all schools earning GHSA state points in all sports that are GHSA sanctioned. In years past if a sport did not have a minimum of 65 schools in a classification participating in that sport then only half points were given. The only exception to the “all sports that are sanctioned by the GHSA earn full points” phrase is wrestling. The GADA will still only award points to a school in one wrestling event (Dual or Traditional). If a school participates in both Duals and Traditional State wrestling tournaments it will only be awarded the highest of the two scores.

The 25 sports include:

  • Football (M)
  • Volleyball (W)
  • Cross Country (M)
