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.
