The CTK Athletic Association (CTKAA) exists to organize and develop the athletics program so that the students have an opportunity to compete in interscholastic sports at the 1A/2A level in the NCHSAA Catawba Shores Conference. The association provides support and encouragement not only for the Athletic Director, but for the achievement of CTK student-athletes. The CTKAA strives to support athletic and academic excellence while valuing teamwork, sportsmanship, and building and developing skills necessary to compete.
