Trinity College Men's Soccer
We play in the New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC). The NESCAC is widely known as the top DIII soccer league in the country. Our league typically sends 4-5 teams to the NCAA tournament every year...far more than any other conference. 3 of the past 4 years National Champion has come from our league, but even more interesting is that each time the national champion lost in our conference quarter finals.
We had a tough campaign this fall and probably set a record for injuries in one season. We have a strong squad returning to our brand new facility in 2018 and we are highly anticipating this fall with the continued growth the boys have been up to this off season.
The 245' x 390' soccer field can be striped at the NCAA-recommended 225' x 360'. It is a premium sand-based Kentucky Bluegrass sodded field with underdrainage and irrigation. Soccer matches will be playable during rainfall events on this surface, as this type of field provides efficient vertical drainage. The field is accompanied by a 350-seat bleacher system and a new enclosed press box for use by coaches, press and filming. A new scoreboard was provided to match the new stadium features. The field is lit by four Musco sports light towers to 50 FC.
"Obviously, it’s such a jump start for our program to have not only a new field, but with the lights, press box, the whole complex will be a recruiting tool as well as an amazing place to play," said Trinity Men's Soccer Coach Mike Pilger. "It's awesome that we got a natural grass surface, which suits our playing style and makes for a much more appealing brand of soccer. The alumni, players, and coaches are thrilled it turned out the way it has. It’s beautiful!"
The strength and conditioning program used at Trinity College is a “Hybrid Training” model. This means we use an assortment of training styles that meet the requirement of being orthopedically safe and physiologically sound. The entire body must be trained in a comprehensive manner with no exercise overemphasized or underemphasized. The program revolves around the use of ground-based, multi-jointed movement patterns during the weight training portion of the program while concurrently addressing the specific metabolic demands of each sport.
