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 by supplying commitment, enthusiasm and dedication. This means attending ALL practices, competitions and team events with a positive attitude. This is especially true of varsity level student-athletes.

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 Form.

See pages 10-14 of the Student and Parent Handbook for Co-Curricular Participations Standards and Athletic Policies.

In August, there is a mandatory athletics information night for all students planning on participating in athletes over the course of the upcoming year, and at least one parent.  Pre-season practices begin mid-August for varsity sports.

Regular practices for upper and middle school fall and spring sports typically run every day, Monday through Friday, that school is in session. Winter practices are posted in November.
