Preseason Information

Dear Pingree Students,

To all newcomers and those returning, welcome to Pingree Athletics & Afternoon Programs! Preseason is a great way to prepare for the upcoming season and bond with your peers. Preseason practices are mandatory for all those trying out for the varsity level of their chosen fall sport. Any player not trying out for varsity who wishes to attend is welcome but not required. All football players are required to be at preseason practices. All sub-varsity practices and other fall activities will begin on Wednesday, September 8, 2021.

Please come to preseason prepared with the appropriate athletics attire, equipment, socks, and footwear. Sport-specific requirements are noted below. For field teams, please bring sneakers in addition to cleats for the possibility of indoor practices. If on the turf field, please note that metal cleats or spikes are not allowed. Please bring a water bottle and make sure you are hydrated and prepared for the heat with sunblock. Note that individual lockers will not be available during preseason practices.

Expect to work hard and have fun! If you have any sport specific questions, feel free to reach out to the athletics team or to the coach of your team. Head coaches’ email addresses are hyperlinked if you click on their name on your team page.
