Varsity Football is open to boys in grades 10 through 12 (9th grade boys may participate at the varsity level at the discretion of the varsity head coach). Hickory Grove houses two football teams which practice daily from late July until November, with workouts continuing in the off season. The varsity team competes for both a conference title within the Central Piedmont Football Conference as well as competing for a state title as a member of North Carolina Independent School Athletic Association (NCISAA).
Student-athletes must have a current physical/parent permission form completed before participating in any tryouts or practices. If you are not sure about your child's status, please contact the Athletic Office at (704) 531-4038 prior to the start of the athletic season.
