Preseason preparations are crucial to the success of fall sports. Athletes have to be in good shape in order to succeed in the upcoming season. Each fall sport has its own individuality and different ways to prepare for the season. Boys and girls soccer, volleyball, football, and track all get ready for the season by doing different things.
Boys’ soccer prepares by doing a variety of things. Current junior, Ethan Vogt explained to get ready for their season.   “We organize practices when a certain amount of players are able to come, to get used to playing again.”

Girls soccer prepares differently. “Girls soccer has a summer league all throughout summer to help prepare,” said current sophomore Katie Baker. See article on pre-season prep by Sarah Gormley here.

Varsity football at WHBHS is a big deal! Different than other sports, football spends the majority of the school year and summer staying in shape for the upcoming season. Current sophomore, Kevin Smith, stated, “I personally enjoy this preparation because it gets me in shape and ready for the season. Also, it means that football is almost back.”  See Kevin’s article on the 2022 team here.
Each sport prepares for the fall season differently. Some work on team bonding and others work on getting physically ready for the season. Westhampton Beach High school cannot wait to see what the 2022 season has in store!
