Middle School Athletic Regulations
The handbook for middle/junior high school athletic programs has been written to assist local boards of education and their staffs in carrying out the intent and purpose of General Statute 115C-47 (4) which makes it the responsibility of the local board of education to regulate extracurricular activities, including athletics.  This manual provides guidelines for LEAs to provide consistency, sportsmanship and fairness for all children who choose to participate in interscholastic athletics. To view a copy of the Middle/Junior High School Athletic Manual, look under Athletic Information.  If a situation is not covered in the middle school manual, please refer to the NCHSAA Handbook for guidance.
