Long Trail School golf competes in Vermont Principals Association Division IV and the Southern Vermont League.

The golf program is designed to provide students with the opportunity to develop the athletic and social skills necessary for success both on the course and in life. Coaches focus on providing instruction, expertise, and constructive feedback while also encouraging players to become active, collaborative, and responsible participants within the team and school.
We view athletics as an integral component of the day-to-day experience of our students. LTS athletes are held to a high standard of sportsmanship, teamwork, accountability, integrity, and dedication. This values-based approach guides us throughout the season. We are excited to learn, grow, and compete.
Go Mountain Lions!

Wed 22

Varsity Boys and Girls Golf @ MAU

September 22 @ 3:30 pm


The week of Sept. 13-17 is a short one for practices as the Varsity team has another match on Tuesday; therefore, there will be no practice that day. MS golfers normally assigned to Tuesday are welcome to come to Thursday’s practice if that fits into their schedule and they do not need 5 pm bus service.
5 pm Bus Routes will ONLY be available MONDAY and WEDNESDAY.
Mon., Sept. 13 Practice Tee/Manchester–all golfers welcome Joan Rizio will be assisting with coaching.
Tues., Sept. 14 VARSITY MATCH at Equinox – No practice
Wed., Sept. 15 PRACTICE CANCELED: Practice Tee/Manchester–all golfers welcome
Thurs., Sept 16 Manchester CC —Varsity will play 9; MS may play behind them in groups [pending tee times] MS must sign up on Wed. so we know how many: NO 5 PM BUS SERVICE AVAILABLE FROM PRACTICE. Pickup for all players will be between 5:30 and 6 pm. Joan Rizio will be assisting with coaching.

Student-athletes must attend 10 practices before being eligible to participate in competitions.  Athletes should make their best effort to attend all practices, unless another arrangement is made ahead of time with the coach and for good reason(s).  For example, doctor appointments need to be scheduled way in advance.  In general, skipping practice for “simple” reasons will not count.

Some basic information about the workings of the team:

  • Weather permitting, high schoolers will practice 4 times a week, Monday through Thursday.
    Weather permitting – and after 8/27, middle schoolers will practice on Mondays and Wednesdays then  either Tuesdays OR Thursdays.
  • As often as possible, we will get back to LTS in time for students to catch the 5 pm buses [students will know in advance if this is not possible]
  • LTS owns  a few loaner sets of golf clubs for right handed players if needed for practice or for the season [we will look into getting a left handed set if needed]
  • attire for practice should be appropriate for golf courses {collared shirt, nice shorts/pants/skirt, sneakers or golf shoes – no jeans or tshirts}
