Athletic Participation

Athletic Participation

Long Trail bases the success of our athletic program not on wins but on the quality of the athlete’s experience. To help ensure the greatest possible experience, Long Trail strives to provide the best possible coaching, facilities and equipment as well as to schedule competitions against optimally challenging opponents. Athletes also share responsibility in creating a positive experience by supplying commitment, enthusiasm and dedication. This means attending, with a positive attitude, ALL possible practices, games and team events. This is especially true of varsity level student-athletes. If a student-athlete knows s/he will miss a team function, s/he must let the coach or Athletic Director know ahead of time.

As a member of the Vermont Principals’ Association, we adhere to their guidelines regarding athletic programs. To be eligible to participate in our athletic program, athletes need to make sure they have submitted a completed Physical Exam Form and Athletic Participation From.

  • Long Trail School requires all spectators to show proof of full vaccination OR a negative COVID-19 test when attending events. If you wish, you may confirm your vaccination status ahead of time by completing the VACCINATION STATUS FORM.  Your name will be put on a list so you do not need to show proof each time you are on campus.

The test results must include the provider’s name and the date and time of the test. You need to present your vaccination card (the physical card or a photo) or proof of a negative test (within 72 hours) as you enter.

If you submit your dated positive PCR test results from a healthcare professional, you may be eligible to obtain a temporary admittance pass.
