Fall Sports Preseason Practice Schedule

Fall sports begin Monday, August 26, and preseason is mandatory for all athletes. Parents and guardians, if your son or daughter plays a fall sport (boys and girls soccer, cross country, and field hockey), he or she is expected to attend all preseason practices and scrimmages. 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 sure you have completed both the Parental Authorization for Medical Treatment and Sudden Cardiac Arrest forms prior to the start of practices. Both forms are digital and included in the "Back to School" forms in the parent portal of the school website; they must be completed online. Also, please make sure your son or daughter has completed a physical exam prior to the start of preseason as per state requirements. Any examinations done before May 1, 2019, cannot be used for the 2019-2020 school year. However, we recognize that insurance companies may limit the number of physical exam visits per year. So if your child's yearly exam date does not fall between May 1st and August 26th, please submit a copy of their most recent exam and the next appointment date.

Below is the preseason practice schedule for each fall sport. All athletes should meet at the Athletic Center at least 15 minutes prior to practices on Monday, August 26th.

One final thing...we have a number of domestic and international boarding students who play fall sports, and some are in need of home stays during the preseason. If you live locally and are interested in hosting an athlete — until they can move into the dorms--please contact Director of Athletics Rob Eichem at reichem@solebury.org.
