Varsity Soccer

Team Overview


The Trinity-Pawling soccer program is built on the School’s reputation of playing with passion and sportsmanship. We welcome student-athletes who want to achieve success — on and off the soccer field. 


Trinity-Pawling varsity soccer competes in the Founders League — one of the most respected leagues in the United States. The Pride has developed its soccer program for consistent competition in the select New England tournament. Many Trinity-Pawling soccer alumni have gone on to play at the Division I, II, and III college levels. Our soccer alumni have seen playing time at Catawba College, Muhlenberg College, Ithaca College, Guilford College, Haverford College, Lake Forest College, Iona College, Nichols College, Dickinson College, and Wesleyan University.
