Mr. Robert McIntyre, Director
Welcome to the Athletic Department of the South Country Central School District, home to the Bellport Clippers.
We have an outstanding athletic program, which includes a number of championship teams. Our nationally recognized Bellport Varsity Football Team won the Long Island Championship for the 6th time in 2010. During that same season our Girls Volleyball Team won the Suffolk County Championship. The Varsity Boys Track 4 x 800 Relay Team won the Suffolk County Championship, the New York Relays and the Melrose games the past two years, and in 2012 the team won a league title. Ninety percent of our varsity teams receive the New York State Scholar Team Award on an annual basis. We are proud of our accomplishments and invite you to take a moment to explore our website.
For more information about our programs, please feel free to call my office at (631)730-1597 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
