Fairhope Middle School has an active sports program with loyal Pirate fans! Students are encouraged to try-out for sports with the understanding that they are expected to maintain at least a "C" academic average to participate if they are selected for a team. Parents are encouraged to go to the Alabama High School Athletic Association website at www.ahsaa.com and select AHSAA and then Information to view the slide show, “What Every Parent Should Know about AHSAA Eligibility Rules.” This slide show addresses eligibility in middle school too.

    Documents required for participation in middle school sports include: a copy of a certified birth certificate, current physical exam form signed by a doctor (good for a calendar year), an Insurance Form (good for a school year), and upon selection for a team, a copy of the Concussion Information Form signed by the student athlete and parent.
