Athletics at the Square


    Spring sports tryouts for boy and girls track, boys soccer, and girls softball will begin on February 22nd at Ligon from 2:30 until about 4-4:30. You will need to have a current physical on file to try out. Every student trying out will have to have a current physical on file and all the paperwork completed to try out. If your child tried out for a fall or winter sport, then they will not need a new physical unless it has expired. If you have any questions, you can email Mr. Nicholas Scheck at

    We are the Mountain Lions, but because Moore Square Magnet Middle School has a small student population of around 620, we cannot support our own athletic sports teams. However, we do partner with Ligon Magnet Middle School to offer team sports opportunities. Interested seventh and eighth graders may try out for sports teams at Ligon. Sixth-grade students are not allowed to participate in sports teams at any middle school. Those students who participate take a brief shuttle ride from Moore Square to Ligon MS after school for tryouts, practices, and games.
