About Us

CMS Athletic Zone

Welcome to the CMS Athletic Zone. This web site provides information on athletic eligibility, the participation fee, eligibility forms, game schedules, board policies & regulations, school / student-athlete achievement, and community partnerships. Information provided is designed to benefit anyone who visits the site. Click on the High School or Middle School tab at the top of the main web page and scroll to a specific school for information relative to that CMS high school or middle school.


Annually, CMS athletic rosters total approximately 10,800 high school and 6,400 middle school participants. Athletic programs on CMS campuses strive to support the academic mission of CMS through athletic experiences that assist in the development of the total student. Participation in athletics provides the opportunity for students to learn social, personal, and physical skills that benefit them through their life experiences. Athletics also provides the opportunity to build school spirit and school pride that in turn keeps students connected with their school long after graduation.


Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools athletic programs are recognized and respected state-wide. Each year, CMS athletic teams win North Carolina High School Athletic Association (NCHSAA) state championships and several CMS high schools are recognized by the NCHSAA as ejection free schools.


Thank you for visiting the CMS Athletic Zone.
