Johnston County Public Schools Athletics

  • Johnston County Public Schools is proud of it's rich athletic past, exciting present, and promising future. All prospective and current student athletes are encouraged to commit to their academics throughout the year, required to follow policies and procedures, and promote good sportsmanship and citizenship thoughout their time representing their school.  All contests, practices, and workouts will be conducted keeping the health and safety of student athletes and staff in mind. All athletic activities are held in compliance with the North Carolina High School Athletic Association’s (NCHSAA), NC DPI, and local LEA policies.


    Participation in workouts is optional for athletes. Athletes and parents should contact their school with specific workout questions and to obtain necessary paperwork (see links below), if needed.


    With the current shortage of officials, it is more apparent than ever that we all need to remind ourselves when actively participating or spectating at a contest that sportsmanship is a requirement by all at any JCPS athletic event.

    Thank you for your support in the interscholastic sports experience in whatever role you serve.


    In Johnston County, we offer all NCHSAA recognized sports and a few additional sports at the high school level. For our middle schools, we offer 11 sports opportunities.
