  • Please do not allow your children to eat RIGHT before practice.

  • A light meal or snack after school and dinner after practice is recommended if possible.

  • Please have your child go to the bathroom before practice. The high school rest rooms may not be available.

  • Practices will probably result in some sore muscles and joints. Sore ankles and various leg muscles soreness are normal and should disappear during the first few weeks when practices are regularly attended. If your child has continuing pain, particularly in the foot or around the ankle, knee or shin areas, make sure the coach knows!

  • Bring sweats to practice. Always dress warmer than you think necessary. It is easier to take off sweats than put on the sweats you didn’t bring! You want to keep your muscles warm throughout the practice.

  • We are a team and strongly support athletes encouraging each other during practices and track meets.
