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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
