All 7th and 8th grade students are welcome to participate in our middle school athletic program. We offer a variety of team and individuals sports throughout our four sports seasons.
We believe that all students have the right to participate in athletics regardless of their experience and ability level. South athletics is a “no cut” program and our coaches are expected to play everyone as equally as possible. Playing time could be adjusted if there are issues regarding attendance, attitude, effort, and cooperation.

All students are required to purchase a South Athletics t-shirt. This shirt will serve as their physical education shirt as well as their athletic uniform. The shirts should be purchased using the Fee Collection Sheet and will be distributed in physical education class.
All students must have a green physical card on file in order to participate. This card must be signed by a physician to verify that the student has had a physical within the past two years and is being allowed to participate in athletics. Students may not participate until this card is turned in.
All students must have an emergency medical treatment form on file in order to participate. This form must be filled out and turned in annually. Physical cards and emergency treatment forms are to be turned in at the Guidance Office on August 23 or August 24 between 7:30 am and 4:00 pm.
Academic eligibility is determined by the previous quarter grades. Quarter 1 eligibility is based on the grades received Quarter 4 of the previous school year for 8th graders only. A student who receives one or more failing quarter grades on their last report card will be placed on academic probation. This means that although they are allowed to practice, they may not participate in the first contest of the season. If the student is passing all classes after the first contest, they are taken off academic probation and are allowed to fully participate. If the student is failing one or more classes after the first contest, the student will no longer be allowed to participate in any capacity for the remainder of quarter.
