Please see the following letter concerning the return of sports for middle schools and the packet that needs to be completed in order for students to participate.

COVID Athletic Parent Letter

2021 Athletic Preparticipation Packet

We believe participation in athletics teaches students valuable skills such as teamwork, dedication, perseverance, and time-management. We offer a variety of sports at the middle school level such as: football, volleyball, basketball, cheerleading, and track. Our student athletes are also able to participate in sports such as cross country, swimming, wrestling, soccer, tennis, golf, baseball, and softball at Sumter High School.

We believe that academics comes before sports, however, and a student may lose their eligibility to participate in a sport if their grades are unsatisfactory or if their behavior has become an issue at school.

A student must be in 7th or 8th grade and have a current physical examination form on file in order to participate in sports.

Please contact our Athletic Coordinator, Mr. Pedro Washington, at 803-775-0821 or pedro.washington@sumterschools.net if you have any questions.
