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.
All participants of sports activities, including cheerleaders, must have a current physical.
