Athletics

The Mason Prep faculty, staff, and coaches strive to develop the whole child, and our athletic program plays a significant part in this effort. Our program is designed to teach basic fundamental skills and then build on those skills at appropriate age levels. Fundamental skills and strategies in several sports can be mastered in the nine years at Mason Prep, and athletes who continue through the middle school years can make an easy transition to high school sports.

Mason Prep athletes also learn the meaning of hard work, integrity, responsibility, commitment, and sportsmanship - critically important traits for each athlete to take to the next level of sport and into adulthood.

Team Sports

Mason Prep’s teams typically involve grades 4 - 8. We play against Lowcountry public and private schools, giving our children an opportunity to make new friends through sport.

  • Volleyball (girls) – Mason Prep fields several teams for girls in Grades 5-8. The volleyball season runs from September to mid-October, with games played through the City of Charleston Recreational Volleyball League.
  • Golf (co-ed, grades 5-8) - Mason Prep competes in a spring golf league, with students competing at several local courses.
  • Basketball (girls and boys) – The basketball program runs from mid-October through early February. Mason Prep fields several teams for boys and girls in fourth through eighth grade in the St. Joseph Athletic Association's league (fourth grade) and the Trident Basketball Association (fifth through eighth grades).
  • Tennis (girls and boys, grades 4-8) - Tennis season takes place in the spring with competition organized through the Charleston Tennis Center.

Developmental Sports

Before students enter a competitive arena, developmental teams are offered in basketball in grades K - 3. These teams participate in intramural sessions with volunteer parent coaches. Rather than a win/loss record, each individual's performing to the best of his or her ability and development of fundamental skills are the Mason Prep measures of success.

Cheer on the Knights!

Instructors: Jackson Soccer Development/Elite Futsal Charleston owner & executive director of coaching, Kevin Jackson and his highly trained staff.
Description: This camp is designed for all players looking to improve his/her skills & tactics. There are many camp opportunities to learn and improve your soccer skills during the summer, but there are very few that can offer both indoor & outdoor facilities. Jackson Soccer Development/Elite Futsal Charleston’s camp is unique because we offer training in the skills and techniques used in both outdoor and futsal (indoor) soccer. The first part of the session will be devoted to the outdoor game. Campers will be learning technical and tactical elements of the game individually and as a team, eventually progressing into small sided drills and game simulating matches. Once play moves inside, players will focus on futsal, the only form of indoor soccer that is recognized world-wide. This area of the camp will work on individual foot skills, fast/accurate passing, movement off the ball, defending and attacking in one-on-one situations, and learning to read to game as it is played at a very fast pace. Appropriate clothing, shinguards, cleats (for outside) & indoor soccer shoes/sneakers (for futsal) are required. Bring a snack & lunch, a soccer ball & water bottle.
