The Poplar Grove Athletics Program encourages students to grow through both winning and defeat.  Our coaching staff maintains positive interactions with our athletes while teaching lifelong skills including discipline and teamwork.

Poplar Grove competes in the Harpeth Valley Athletic Conference (HVAC) for most sports.  Middle School teams are fielded in 13 sports at Poplar Grove.


Any 5th, 6th, 7th, or 8th grade boy or girl is eligible to play on school teams if he/she keeps a passing grade in every subject and does not have behavior concerns.  The student must also have a current physical on file with the Athletic Director.

We are dedicated to the development of a high-quality program that will instill pride in our students. In order to make this program successful for all students we need the support of all PGS families and our community.
