GOHS XC Runners and Parents -
This email contains several important pieces of information. Please read the entire thing.
Runners Needing Rides To/From Practice
We have some talented new Runners with situations where travel to and from practice is difficult for their families right now during Summer practice times. We have 2 more weeks of Summer practices before school starts. If a Runner is walking more than half a mile to/from practice, I would like to see that change.
Afternoon practices will begin on August 9th, when teachers all go back to work on campus. Starting then, practice will begin at 3:00 PM.
If your Runner needs help getting to and from practice, and you would like to be connected with another XC parent for help, please fill out this form: FORM
If you would be willing to be connected to someone needing transportation help, please fill out this form: FORM
Coaches CANNOT transport Runners to and from home. We take care of anything needed during practices.
XC Team Camps Next Week
Next week, in Temecula, practice times/days stay the same as they have been for the last 2 weeks. Coach Martin and Coach Laurence will have many fun activities worked into the practice schedule for each day.
The last day of weekday morning practices will be August 6th. Saturday morning practices will continue throughout the entire season.
Starting August 9th, team practices will be in the afternoon at 3:00 PM. Personal workouts will then be in the mornings. I will be running a first period Running PE class that is intended to help Runners with their morning workouts and is aimed at Varsity athletes. I will be giving guidance counselors a list of Runners I would like in that PE class on August 6th. I will answer more questions about this on August 6th.
Team Parent Meeting
We will have a meeting for all Parents of XC Runners at the beginning of the school year. More information will be coming soon. Remember to check announcements on the team website periodically.
I will be in Mammoth Lakes next week for the Mammoth XC Camp. I will continue to answer Remind messages and emails as I have time.
I will see your Runners tomorrow morning at Butterfield Stage Park for the normal Saturday practice at 6:30 AM.
Running is the Best! Go Wolfpack!
