 ATTENDANCE: We are reemphasizing the need for daily attendance at practices. If an athlete cannot be in attendance, an emailed or hand-written "excused absence" message from the parent is necessary in order to qualify for each meet. An athlete with an unexcused absence will not be allowed to run, but should still join us for the bus ride and to cheer on his/ her team.
*Friday practices= begin at 7:20am and end at 7:40am   
*Team race v Open race. Team race= top 7 fastest athletes. Open races are reserved for those athletes placing 8th or higher at the previous meet.
Mondays 3:30-5:00= core strength, long run
Tuesdays 3:30-5:00= repeats, hills, sprint work, upper/ lower body strength training
Wednesdays 3:30-5:00= 2 mile tempo run, core strength, course/ race tips, MITCHELL'S

Athletes should always plan to ride the bus with the team to and from every event. The "transportation release form" must be used to remove an athlete from riding the team bus.
