-As the exciting Track and Field season comes to an end we find ourselves only a few weeks away from the start of Cross Country! Our summer training program begins on Monday, June 18th. The consistency of our athletes over these off-season months is the most important factor to the program's success. These optional workouts are highly encouraged for all XC runners and any athlete of any sport looking to get in shape prior to their fall season.
-The inaugural Senior Camp was a success with the senior runners discussing expectations and sharpening their Ultimate and Nuke'Em skills. Pictures can be found here.
-Encourage your athletes to stick around and spend time with their teammates after each summer workout. Ultimate and Nuke'Em are a blast and a great opportunity to strengthen the bonds between teammates.
-The boys and girls XC teams have multiple yoga sessions scheduled over the summer at The Space in the Green Oak mall. This is free for all athletes attending our summer workouts. Our first session is this Thursday, the 21st.
-With the new season approaching parents/guardians are encouraged to review the documents on the Info/Docs page of the team website. The files on this page provide a wealth of information on the program and are excellent resources for new parents.
-Please remind athletes to reacquaint themselves with their running2win account. Coach Elsey sends out frequent communications through the websites r-mail feature. Runners needing to create an account can find step by step instructions in the 2018 9th grade info packet.
-Send positive thoughts to our athletes wrapping up their 2018 Track and Field season at New Balance Nationals on Sunday, the 17th. The Emerging Elite DMR begins at 10:10 and the Emerging Elite 4x4 starts at 1:15. The schedule, start lists, and results can be found here. The live webcast can be found here.
