Middle School Athletics

  • East Edisto Middle School is proud to offer an athletic program, which we believe is an essential part of the total educational process, with three primary goals for our student-athletes:

    • to develop cognitive and social-emotional skills that help them work cooperatively with others,
    • to develop and improve personal sport skills and knowledge, and
    • to be actively involved in enjoyable (fun) athletic experiences.

    Dorchester District Two offers the following sports for 7th and 8th grade students:

    Fall

    Winter

    Spring

    Volleyball

    Boys Basketball

    Girls Basketball

    Wrestling

    TBD

    *(Effective 2020-2021, all DD2 Middle School Football, Baseball and Softball programs have been absorbed by the district's high schools.)  7th and 8th grade students may also be eligible to participate in other sports not listed here through the high school they are zoned to attend.

    Our athletic program is a member of the South Carolina High School League and as such, all participants must meet all eligibility requirements.

    All participants in the league must have been promoted from the previous year, not placed. (Students who pass all core and high school credit classes during the first semester of the year may be eligible for sports that start after the second semester begins.)  All participants must remain in good standing during athletic participation, which includes passing all subjects.  Student-athletes with discipline issues will be handled on a case-by-case basis.  School suspensions may result in suspension from playing.

    Participants must not have turned 15 prior to July 1, 2022.
