Varsity Soccer - Boys
Pingree competes in the Eastern Independent League (EIL). The boys have won the EIL several times and finished in the top third a majority of the past few seasons. Several alumni have gone on to play successfully at the collegiate level. Pingree coaches aim to develop players’ instincts for soccer through small-sided games and emphasis on patterns and positions.
Pingree boys soccer strives to instill a strong work ethic and determination through teamwork and commitment to the program. Players will have access to an experienced coaching staff that focuses on tactics and individual decision-making on the field. Our goals are to fulfill the potential of each individual and the team, and to build upon our past success, improving our program every day.
