Charleston County School District (CCSD) officials on Wednesday confirmed that the first-ever CCSD Football Jamboree has been canceled.  

The inaugural exhibition event was scheduled for this Friday, August 13th.

“Obviously, we are disappointed,” said CCSD’s Executive Director of  Athletics, Trevor Strawderman. “With half of our teams in quarantine, it is  just not possible. However, we will continue to follow safety protocol. We  want our student-athletes and coaches healthy and ready for the regular  season.”

District leaders learned Wednesday evening that James Island Charter High School’s varsity team had to pause team activities due to COVID-19 protocols. Four additional teams, Burke High School, Military Magnet Academy, Wando High  School, and West Ashley High School had already been forced to withdraw from the jamboree due to COVID precautions.

Fans who purchased tickets online will receive a full refund.
