Patrick Hayes, Director of Athletics, Health & Physical Education


Welcome to the Athletic Department of the South Country Central School District, home to the Bellport Clippers.

Interscholastic athletics are an integral part of the educational process of the South Country School District. Athletics is an enriching experience that allows the student athlete to explore the physical and mental excellence within themselves. The South Country's School District’s goal is to develop a competitive athletic program without losing sight of educational values such as sportsmanship, health and scholastic attainment.

The South Country School District has a high participation rate in a well-rounded program of individual and team sports. Bellport athletics offers sports that include varsity, junior varsity and modified programs for students in grades seven through twelve. Our teams and student-athletes have distinguished themselves with winning records and championships in the Section XI, and New York State competitions and nationally recognized. Many teams have been recognized for their combined grade-point average through the NYSPHSAA team Scholar-Athlete program. We are proud of our accomplishments and invite you to take a moment to explore our website.

We wish all our teams a safe and healthy season. #ClipperPride
