Welcome to the Liberty Middle School Athletic Page!
Update Regarding LMS Athletics and Covid-19:
GHSA has authorized "voluntary workouts" for athletes beginning June 22 on school campuses with guidelines, LMS football has 2 groups that will workout on campus(see football page). Keep in mind that the dead week this year is 6/29-7/5 in which no school related sports activity can take place. Click this link to see our Covid Plan: LMS Covid 19 Plan
These guidelines of course will probably change in the next few weeks but just know that LMS is committed to keeping your child safe.
We thank you for your patience and understanding during this time of uncertainty. Below is the latest statement from GHSA:
The GHSA and the Sports Medicine Advisory Council appreciates our member schools' efforts during the successful implementation of the Coronavirus Guidance Plan.
The GHSA has elected to implement: 1) intra-squad competitions (7-on-7, 3-on-3, ... ) are allowed but competition between schools is illegal, 2) Groups of 50 are allowed to re-group if it can be done safely, 3) Cheerleading, Softball and Volleyball tryouts are allowed, 4) mask and face covering are recommended and 5) Each student should have their own personal water bottle (water bottles may be re-filled during workouts). No use of water fountains or “water cows” is allowed, starting Monday, July 6th with the following stipulations:
1. Recommend a mask or face covering.
2. Groups may be re grouped into a group with up to the limit of 50 individuals.
3. Water bottles may be refilled during workouts
FOOTBALL- NO helmets, shoulder pads, girdles, knee or thigh pads can be worn AT ANY TIME. The face mask and face covering recommended guideline does not refer to helmets or helmet face masks, but to the use of cloth face covering/masks to help slow the spread of Covid-19.

Recommendations and restrictions are fluid and subject to change. Safety must be our top priority.
