If you are interested in trying out for winter sports, then please make sure to get your physical and all necessary paperwork completed and turned into the AJMS front office by OCT 30.

All A and B day students interested in trying out need to sign the interest sheet while at school on your designated school day. Virtual students need to call the school so that they can be added to the interest list of wrestling, boys basketball, or girls basketball. Please call if you have any questions.

Fan Attendance, Parking, and Ticket Policy for 2020 Sports Seasons

As we begin Middle School fall sports, we wanted to provide information regarding fan attendance policy, ticket sales, and parking instructions. There will not be any tickets for sale at the gate during a game. All tickets will be pre sold to athletes only. Each athlete will receive a predetermined number of tickets. The only people that will have access to tickets are immediate family members. Coach Robinson will contact volleyball parents, Coach Mager will contact football parents, and Coach Joyner will contact cheer parents for home and away events. We will use a combination of GoFan and physical tickets depending on where the event is held. Coaches will be in contact with parents about these procedures. Do NOT show up to an event unless you have prepaid for a ticket.

Fans must present tickets and have temperatures checked prior to parking in the high school student parking lot. Once you are through that checkpoint, then you may enter the event and present your prepaid ticket to the ticket taker.

Fans will be required to wear face masks and social distance. You will be given more information once you have entered the event regarding seating. It is important that we follow these South Carolina High School League and Lancaster County School District guidelines so that our student athletes have the opportunity to complete their seasons. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.

When physical forms are returned to the school, please attach the parent permission form, concussion form, emergency information form and a copy of the student's birth certificate. We are NO LONGER able to receive copies from the guidance department. All forms MUST be turned in at the same time, signed and dated by both the athlete and parent/guardian.
