Important notices or deadlines will always be communicated in three ways; at practice in person, on this page, and on the Facebook page linked here. Weekly announcements are as follows-

As we begin our season, it is important to have good shoes, water, and proper running apparel everyday for practice. Students without these three requirements will not be allowed to participate. This training block will be focused on building base especially within our new runners and beginning up to strength workouts. There will be a bit of a lull in volume and intensity for the first two weeks of the season to help students acclimate to the hotter afternoon temperatures. We are going to train hard and smart this season. Consistency is key, which means following the training plan and coming to practice. If you cannot make practice please communicate with Coach Kyle, Coach Matt, or Coach Mackenzie
