Overview

MAPL CHAMPS

2017

Blair soccer is rich in history and tradition. Each season, our aim is to assimilate new faces with established players to form a committed and cohesive unit, both on and off the field. Discipline, organization and communication guide our daily work, and it is the responsibility of the group to internalize these principles if we are to be successful.

At the varsity level, Blair faces a grueling schedule as a member of the Mid-Atlantic Prep League (MAPL) and a participant in the highly competitive New Jersey prep “A” division. Fielding a schedule of approximately 18 games, including the much-anticipated Peddie Day match, Blair soccer requires intense physical and mental preparation. Thus, fitness is crucial to the success of the team and, under the guidance of our coaching staff, our players train extremely hard to achieve peak condition.

Blair also maintains successful JV and 3rds programs, providing opportunities for future varsity players to mature and develop, while also affording students the chance to participate and enjoy the sport at an appropriate level. The teams play approximately 15 games against our MAPL rivals and a number of local high schools. Both JV and 3rds end the fall season on Peddie Day.
