Athletic Director

  • 2021-2022 Sports Information

    We realize that the COVID-19 pandemic has caused academic, social, emotional, and other hardships for our students and families. We also understand the importance of middle school sports and how participation in athletics contributes to students' overall well-being. 

    Therefore, in support of our student-athletes, eligibility requirements are being waived for the fall semester. Students wishing to play fall sports will be allowed to try out. Please note per the N.C. Department of Public Instruction, that sixth-grade students cannot play football. 

    The eligibility rules for middle school sports will be reinstated for the spring 2022 semester (when we return to school from the winter break). For the spring semester, we will follow the academic and attendance requirements for student-athletes based on the fall 2021 semester: a student cannot fail more than one class and must have a minimum attendance rate of 85 percent. 

    Rising 6th Graders can play all sports except football. Student-athletes MUST have a current physical on file to try out (Physical Form). Student-athletes must also complete the Gfeller Waller concussion form (G-W Form). Please contact the head coach if you have questions regarding eligibility or specific start times.
