Athletic Start-Up Dates through 2018-19

Dear New Trier Parents and Families,

The next three years will be an exciting time for New Trier District #203 and its constituents. The culmination and conclusion of the District's renovation of the Winnetka Campus will occur in time for the start of the 2017-2018 school year.

In the interim period, the District #203 Board of Education has approved a series of academic calendars designed to support in the construction process and reduce impact on the educational program at Winnetka. These calendars are available in their entirety at http://www.newtrier.k12.il.us/Calendars/School_Year_Calendars_and_Schedules/

It is important to note that, while the New Trier academic calendar will vary considerably, the Illinois High School Association (IHSA) athletic calendar will remain on relatively the same annual schedule for our sports teams. In Illinois, the start of the fall sports season and subsequent contest schedule is fixed on a standard calendar organized by the IHSA and listed below for each of the next four years. We are providing this calendar to help you plan for each succeeding year.

New Trier Athletic teams will begin practice (sometimes referred to as try-outs) on the dates listed below (Football/Fall Sports). As in the past, some accommodations will be made for freshman in those sports that do not have squad size limitations (cuts).

Please contact the New Trier Athletic Department at (847) 784-2225 or the head coach of any individual fall sport with questions regarding the start of the fall sports seasons.
