Londonderry High Sports Tryouts Get the 2016 Fall Campaign Rolling

With Londonderry High School’s football and cheerleading teams having begun their tryouts Wednesday, Aug. 10, the 2016 New Hampshire fall sports season is officially off and rolling at the local school. And most of the rest of the Lancer sports squads will get their own tryouts going next Monday, Aug. 15.

The LHS boys’ soccer program begins its tryout sessions that day with double sessions from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m., and then from 4 to 6 p.m. at Lancer Park.

The girls’ soccer players will also pull double sessions that day on their LHS practice field from 7 to 9 a.m. and then from 2 to 4 p.m.

The Lady Lancers’ field hockey players will be on their home field behind the Matthew Thornton school on the Aug. 15 from 7 to 9:30 a.m.

Girls’ volleyball players will be broken up into two groups, with returning varsity players and juniors and seniors in the LHS gymnasium from 8 to10 a.m. and the freshmen and sophomores in the gym from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The school’s boys’ and girls’ cross-country teams will meet on the LHS track at 8 a.m. that day, and the Londonderry High golfers will be out bright and early  at 7 a.m. at the Hidden Creek Country Club in Litchfield.

The LHS unified soccer crew won’t be meeting until Sept. 1 at 2:15 p.m., and they’ll do so in the Londonderry High gym.

All entering ninth grade athletes and new athletes to Londonderry High and their parents must take the free Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on-line course “Heads Up: Concussion in Youth Sports,” on the LHS athletics on-line page, and provide the certificate of completion in order to participate in high school athletics.

No student athlete will be eligible to try out, practice, or represent their school in interscholastic athletics unless there is a current physician’s statement on file in the LHS nurse’s office certifying that the student has no physical or other defect that would cause them to be a risk in athletic activities.

Folks are also asked to note that a physical on or after March 1 of the year of entrance into the high school is good for all four years, but it’s recommended that athletes have a physical each year.

Registration for 2016 Fall sports is ongoing until Sept. 3. Questions can be directed to the LHS athletic office at 432-6941.
