The genesis of the South Suburban Conference took
place in the fall of 2009 as nine schools left the Lake
Conference. The official start of the conference was
July 1, 2010.
Apple Valley, Bloomington Jefferson, Bloomington
Kennedy, Burnsville, Eagan, Eastview, Lakeville North,
Lakeville South and Rosemount high schools
departed the Lake Conference and added Prior Lake
High School, from the Missota, to create a ten school
conference based primarily on locations south and

Beginning with the 2014 school year, the conference welcomed
Farmington and Shakopee from the defunct Missota conference and
said goodbyes to the Bloomington schools as they left for the new
Metro West conference.
