The APS Knights A team will move up to Division 1, while Pace and North Springs will now compete in Division 2. Wesleyan and Lakeside B will move up to Division 2, and the Wildcats have formed a A-team that will also compete in Division 2.

    Five new teams, Lakeside C, Wildcats B, GAC B, Calhoun and Forsythe, will be joining the GHSWPA within Division 3, which will be split in to geographic regions due to the large number of divisional participants.

    Once established, tweet immediate content, like behind-the-scenes photos or unofficial game results, and get retweets from the GHSWPA, from your school or maybe even from your local news agency. Follow the league as a whole using the #GAPolo hashtag.

    ... to the GHSWPA
    Your team Twitter account will be listed as part of the contact information for your team on the league website, and could possibly be used by those outside of the league seeking to learn more about your team or your athletes.

    After two full seasons of using Twitter, the league has experienced its benefits firsthand. We are hoping that each team will join us in the Twitter-verse in 2016!
