Athletics

South Middle School words.
Football, volleyball, and basketball are open to students who are in the seventh and eighth grades and who will not reach their fifteenth birthday before September 1. A student may complete a season that is already in progress. A seventh or eighth-grade student must have been promoted the previous year in order to participate in athletics. The S.C. High School League does not allow students below  the  seventh-grade level to play on interscholastic teams. Sixth-grade teams may continue to play on the  teams provided by the Lancaster County Recreation Department. Policies and/or regulations governing the interscholastic athletic program are set forth by the S.C. High School League, the school district, and South Middle School.
