***Concessions sign up. This is something I could really use your help with. We host 6 meets this year at Stratford! Concessions goes a long way to helping provide new equipment, uniforms, and other items the team needs. We are also hosting larger meets including the Marawood Conference meet and the WIAA Regional Meet. Here is the signup link to secure your volunteer spot:https://signup.com/go/WJKdUQzAs they say, "it takes a village". All of us helping out for the concession stands greatly impacts and helps the kids and the running program. We need your help!
Physical forms. Please make sure your physical is up to date and in the system with the school. If you are not sure, ask, and we will figure out what you need. (see the registration link for more details)
Practices. First day of practice is March 6, 2023. Plan to be outside EVERY DAY. This means you will want to have a hoodie, sweats, and other attire to keep you warm at each practice. Practices will run from 3:30pm to 5:30pm. (Finish times will vary based on the training day, we could be done earlier). There may be some weekend practices based on our meet schedule as it has been in prior years. There may also be days off during the season. I'll communicate those changes via REMIND.
Shoes. There are different types of shoes for distance running, sprinting, jumping, throwing, etc. If you are unsure what types of shoes your athlete should have, please contact me, and we can discuss it.
The season runs from March 6th to June 4th. The state track meet is Friday June 3th and Saturday June 4th. Location: LaCrosse, WI.
Donations for drinks: Additionally we are also asking for donations for drinks as we have done in the past. here is a link to that signup site: https://signup.com/go/tgPXXov
As a team we need to be there together. We will be taking attendance daily. You will see in the code of conduct that there is an un-excused absence portion. We are taking this seriously and we ask that you do as well. We cannot get better if we are not at practice and taking it seriously. I am asking you to commit to the team and trust us as coaches to help you get to where you want to go.
