New to Herd Football?


If you are new to Carlisle football, below are a few things to know.
  • Carlisle High School has Varsity, Junior Varsity and 9th grade football teams. The 9th grade team is open to 7th through 9th grade students.
  • Our school is in the Mid-Penn  Conference of District 3, in the PIAA. Our youth "feeder" program is Carlisle Area Midget Football & Cheer
  • Players have the opportunity to attend off-season workouts throughout the summer. If your student is considering playing in the fall, they are strongly encouraged to attend summer workouts! 

    Players attend team camp at Lebanon Valley College every July. Again, aspiring players are strongly enouraged to attend. The Boosters provide players with opportunities to earn money to offset the cost of camp.
  • Practice begins in August with two weeks of Heat Acclimation. Participation is mandatory, per PIAA rules. If your child plans to play in the fall, they must be present for practices/Heat Acclimation in August. 
  • The Football Boosters play an essential role in helping to support the players and the program. Visit the Football Boosters' webpage for more information! 
Stay in the loop by signing up for the Booster email list. We can then provide you information about the joining the TeamReach app which is used by coaches to communicate with players and parents.
