Welcome to the Department of Athletics 

As we continue to navigate the challenges of return to school and return to play, I trust that this day finds you healthy and safe. Please find attached on the website are “Guidelines for Return to Play/Practice Team Sports (PHASE 1.5)” with supplemental information. The return of team sports comes with specific guidelines to be followed. A task force of representatives from the League staff, SC Superintendents, member school athletics directors and coaches, and the SCHSL Sports Medicine Advisory Committee (SMAC) has carefully compiled this information. Additionally, the information has been reviewed and vetted by DHEC, and discussed with a representative from the SC Governor’s office. The goal is to allow the athletes, coaches, and staff to begin and/or continue in-person training and group workouts while maintaining a safe environment.

If anyone has any questions referencing these guidelines, please do not hesitate to contact the school’s athletic office.
