Athletic Fall Preseason Begins August 28, 2017

A Note From Athletic Director Rob Eichem

Looking ahead to next year, fall preseason begins on Monday, August 28, 2017. It is mandatory for all athletes, and if your son or daughter plays a fall sport (boys and girls soccer, field hockey, and cross country), he or she is expected to attend all preseason practices and scrimmages.

Practice times will be determined by the coaches and announced during the summer. Athletes who miss more than 25% of all scheduled preseason obligations (team meetings, practices, scrimmages, etc.) are automatically ineligible to be a team captain and may be required to miss games/meets at the beginning of the season, to be determined by the coaches. Please make your summer plans with this in mind.

As we have a large number of domestic and international boarders who play fall sports, I'm always on the look out for home stays for them during the preseason. If you live locally and are interested in hosting a Solebury athlete next fall, until they can move into the dorms, please let me know via email (reichem@solebury.org).
