Dear Parents and Student/Athletes,
I want to take this opportunity to provide information on our preseason athletic program. The preseason athletic program is for experienced student/athletes in forms III-VI in field hockey, football, boys’ soccer, girls’ soccer and volleyball. Students who return for preseason have prepared for the physical demands of 2-3 practices each day by following the workout program located in the athletic section of the Abbey website.
Preseason is short and intense and physical preparation is the key for individual and team success. If you have any questions about the preseason athletic program, do not hesitate to contact me.
Al Brown, Director of Athletics

The school does not open until Tuesday, September 7th. Most students who arrive early make arrangements to stay with teammates who live locally or stay off campus in a hotel.
Each student must have their physical exam complete and on file in the Medical Services office prior to arriving for preseason.
Boarders are assigned to their school year housing. Day students are welcome to participate in preseason practices/activities but leave campus each day after their last practice and reside at home.
School and Dormitory Rules: All Preseason Athletes
All school rules are in effect during preseason. All preseason athletes and parents must thoroughly read the student handbook.
