12 Mar

Is your son or daughter interested in being on St. Mary’s track team? The season starts soon! An informational session and introductory practice will be held this Monday, March 16th at 3:10 in the gym. Parents and students in grades 5-8 are encouraged to attend. There will be a question/answer session followed by a mini practice. Interested students should bring a water bottle, and wear running shoes and exercise attire appropriate for the weather. Extensive running experience is not required; however, the student should be able to run 1 mile without stopping (speed is not a consideration!).

Lindsay Doyle is the head coach, and another parent is needed to share coaching responsibilities. Formal coaching experience is not necessary but running experience is helpful. Practices will be held 2-3 times each week from 3-4pm, beginning Tuesday, March 10. Specific days will be determined based on the availability of the second coach. Last year, meets were held on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 4:00 at Collegiate, St.Christopher’s, and Benedictine. St. Mary’s has a lot of talented runners of all abilities that participated last year and we would love to have more runners join the team!

If you and/or your child is unable to attend Monday’s meeting and you would like additional information, please email Lindsay Doyle at lindsaybill@yahoo.com.
