Nereid’s pre-season program is a two week program to get athletes back in the swing of practice, as well as give new athletes an opportunity to join the competitive team.

Pre-season practice runs 5 days a week (M-F from 4-6)

The Fall pre-season runs from August 17th-August 28th


Athletes will run through a wide array of land and water workouts testing fitness, skill, enthusiasm, attitude and work ethic. At the end of the two weeks, the coaches will sit down with each athlete to tell them which Fall 2020 program to sign up for. Those programs include: Varsity, Novice, Middle School and Recreational

For those athletes that want to be on our competitive racing teams, Varsity and Novice, Fall Pre-Season is mandatory. This is to make sure each athlete is on the proper team before heading into the season. For athletes that are only interested in the Middle School and Recreational program to start, pre-season is not mandatory but encouraged!

Once the two week period is complete, coaches will talk to each athlete, and inform them of which program to sign up for. Athletes and parents will have one week to sign up for their program.
