Who may attend pre-season camp?
Any Upper School student interested in playing on a varsity, junior varsity, or freshman fall team is encouraged to attend pre-season camp. All students planning on attending the pre-season camp must notify the Athletic Office by filling out the Back to School Form by August 1st. There is no cost for pre-season camp. Middle School students may not attend pre-season practice.
Where will I stay during camp?
All students playing Field Hockey, Soccer, and Football are required to live on campus for pre-season camp from August 23rd – August 28th. Resident students for Tennis and Cross Country will also be allowed to live on campus. In order to assist our facilities staff in preparing the dorms for the opening of School, all day students will be required to vacate their dorm rooms by 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, August 28th. Only resident students will be permitted to live in the dorms after August 28th. Students who will be resident students during the school year will be able to occupy their assigned rooms during camp. Students may not use their cars during pre-season camp. All dorms will be closed over Labor Day weekend. Arrangements will be made to accommodate those resident students who are unable to return home for the weekend.
Since all School policies will be in effect starting with those athletes attending camp, there will be a meeting on Thursday, August 23rd at 1:00 p.m. in the dining hall. Amy Roth, director of resident life, will give a brief orientation and overview of the current rules and regulations. No student is permitted to leave campus without notifying either their coach or a member of the Resident Life Office.
What should I bring to camp?
All students will be responsible for their own bed linens and towels. Please note that the dorm beds require extra long sheets. Students should also bring plenty of socks, t-shirts and gym shorts for multiple daily practices. There are coin-operated washers and dryers available on campus, if needed. Students should purchase spikes prior to camp. It is strongly suggested that players break in new spikes before camp, so practice time is not lost to blisters. Field Hockey players are expected to have their own goggles and stick. Soccer players are required to have their own shin guards, which meet the NFHS standards.
All students must have a recent physical exam and a parental permission form on file with The Hun School, before they will be permitted to practice. Please make an appointment to see your doctor. Click here to visit the Office of Health Services page on The Hun School website for specific information about what is needed in terms of health forms. We ask that each student please bring an extra copy of their completed physical form to camp.
Thank you for your cooperation. Have a safe and happy summer!
