Session 13 Pre-season Track sign-up!!

Next week will start a new off-season training session sanctioned by DPS.

Please complete the link at the bottom – even if you completed one for the previous session, you will need to do so again.

The sign-up link will close promptly at 5:00pm, this Friday, March 12th. If you miss this deadline you will have to wait until the next session.

Once we receive the sign-up rosters we will determine practice times for next week (aiming for it to stay the same as now, but I will send an update either way).

Pre-Season Track Begins!!

We will officially start pre-season practice next week!

These practices are part of DPS sanctioned off-season training protocols that require ALL ATHLETES TO COMPLETE THE FOLLOWING COVID WAIVER (link below) BY THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 18TH @ 5PM.

If the waiver is not complete by this time there will be no exceptions made and the athlete will have to wait 3 weeks until the next session.

After we have everyone signed up, I will update everyone with practice dates/times.

East Track Update (Track still cancelled)

FYI – in-person practice on the East Track is still cancelled for this week as originally planned for session 8. The previous post was for the East Cross Country Virtual Running Club. We will keep you updated with any news regarding the restart of off-season training for Track & Field. Thanks! – Coach Tasker

Running Club Schedule Changes – December

Due to the lack of sun and the increase in covid cases, we are changing the running club schedule.

In December, the group will only meet once a week on Wednesdays, depending on your school schedule, at 9:30am or 3:00pm at the big E. This will cut down on the size of the group and allow you to run in daylight. During winter break, we will not meet.

The other days will be virtual or you can meet and run in small groups. We will post training schedules for those training for 5Ks and another set of training schedules for those training for an April half marathon. See Final Surge for workout details.

We will not run a 5K in December. If cases decrease, we will try to run a 5K in January. If they increase, we won’t.

Remember masks and social distancing are required at practice. You can remove your mask during your run, but they must be worn at all other times.

We hope you all had a nice fall break!!

Hey Track Athletes!
