The Greater South Shore Conference in Indiana

The Greater South Shore Conference is an eight-member Indiana High School Athletic Association athletic conference spanning Lake, La Porte, Newton, and Porter Counties in Northwest Indiana. A ninth member, South Central participates only in football, otherwise participating in the Porter County Conference.

Hanover Central High School will join the conference in all sports except football in 2013, and will begin competing in varsity football in either 2014 or 2015. Boone Grove, a Porter County Conference member, will join the conference in football only, concurrent with the start of Hanover Central's football program. The conference will split into two divisions for football, with the North Division including Calumet, Hammond Bishop Noll, Lake Station Edison, River Forest and Whiting, and the South Division including Boone Grove, Hanover Central, North Newton, South Central and Wheeler. In 2017, the conference will lose North Newton and non-football member Michigan City Marquette, while gaining Griffith.[1]
