Athletics

Erskine Academy has 33 interscholastic sports teams at the Varsity and Junior Varsity level that participate in the Maine Principals’ Association and Kennebec Valley Athletic Conference competitions. Team coaches include faculty and staff members, alumni, and local

community members. We have an athletic trainer available during after school practice times and at home games. Students are encouraged to participate in one or more sports seasons.

NOTE: All schedules are subject to change, and it is best to check with the school (207) 445-2962 or email Athletic Director Chuck Karter before traveling to games.  PLEASE BE ADVISED THERE IS A NO SMOKING AND NO PETS POLICY AT ALL ATHLETIC EVENTS. ERSKINE ACADEMY IS A SMOKE-FREE CAMPUS.

The Athletic Department requires all student-athletes to submit the following forms by the first day of tryouts: Pre-Participation Health History, Parent-Student Permission Contract, and the Concussion Management and Policy Acknowledgement, which are available below.

Changes to Spring Sports Schedule:
To Erskine Academy Spring Sports Athletes and Families,
With a heavy heart, I inform you that due to the extraordinary situation in regard to the Covid-19 Pandemic, the Maine Principals Association has decided to cancel the 2020 Spring Sports season for all Maine High Schools. This decision was not made lightly by the Administration of the MPA, and was crafted in concert with the guidelines of the CDC and the recommendation of the Commissioner of Education for the State of Maine.
It seems that life, as we knew it, will change drastically as we move forward from this point on. I feel that one of the things that will continue to be part of the “new normal” will be the fellowship that happens for all of us when we set out on the journey of each sports season. The EA Coaching staff and I have connected throughout this time away from school and it is clear to me that we all miss you very much. It is difficult for us to know that you will not be celebrating your love of the game, overcoming challenges, and sharing these experiences with teammates/coaches. The “do your part-stay apart” message we received from the State of Maine is very contradictory and out of character for Erskine athletes and families…and our teams in general. But I do understand the need for protecting ourselves and our families and minimizing the risk for those most vulnerable.
With the closure of all schools, we have done our best to stay connected through the world of Zoom, Google Meet, Facebook, and several other means…making the best of a bad situation. I am confident you all can meet this challenge and continue to demonstrate those character traits that are the hallmark of EA student-athletes.
I want to say to those senior athletes that I am truly sorry for the hand you have been dealt in this situation. I will miss the chance to watch you play your sport this Spring and at the same time feel fortunate that I have had the honor to watch you perform for the past 3 years. Thank you!
There are many questions and, at this time, there are no real answers. The changes are happening so quickly that there are no predictions for what the future holds. Ultimately, our goal is for you all to be happy and healthy in these uncertain times. Do your schoolwork, get some exercise and spend time outdoors, be a good teammate at home, and reach out to your coach or team members to say hi or to just stay connected. Hopefully the danger of this virus will soon go away and we can all get back to “normal” as soon as possible. BUT, until then, stay well, stay home, and stay strong!
There will be continued discussions with Mr McQuarrie, Mr Soule, Mr Clark, and our Guidance Staff in regard to academic expectations and recognition for Erskine Academy students. We will contact you all with additional information and expectations as they develop.
I wish you and your family all the best and I look forward to seeing you again soon.
Sincerely,
Chuck Karter
Athletic Administrator
