Athletics at the Square


    Winter sports tryouts, boys and girls basketball, will start on November 15th. 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 sport, then they will not need a new physical unless it is expired. Only students who have current physicals turned into Mr. Scheck will be allowed to ride the bus from Moore Square to Ligon. 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 team sports. 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.
