Monday Workout (Sprints/Field Events):
Please have your splits written down PRIOR TO PRACTICE on Monday. A good place to write them down is on your arm (unless you plan on losing your arm prior to practice). We will not take time to do this at practice nor to organize training groups.
Use the charts below and follow these instructions:
If you are a short sprinter (100m/200m) use the GREEN CHART. If you are a long sprinter (300H/400m), use the PURPLE CHART. If you are unsure which type of sprinter you are, check the projection chart, it is highlighted accordingly.
On the PROJECTION chart (it has your name somewhere on it), write down your highlighted time. For example, Josh’s projected 200m time is 21.45 (highlighted in green because he is a short sprinter).
On the PERCENTAGE chart, locate the column with the time closest to your projected time (the time you already wrote down). For example, Josh would locate the 21.5 column on the GREEN CHART since he has a projected time of 21.45 and is a short sprinter. He would NOT use the 21.0 column because 21.45 is much closer to 21.5 than 21.0.
Write down the 100, 150, 200 and 250 split listed in the corresponding column. For example, Josh would write down these times on his arm: 100: 12.4 / 150: 18.5 / 200: 24.7 / 250: 31.4
Check the projection chart and memorize your training group number. Get familiar with who else is in your training group (training groups are labeled 1-9 for boys and 1-7 for girls).
Be on time to practice and be prepared to follow instructions.
Please see the following update from our Athletic Director, Michael Tasker.
Good evening East Athletics team and families,
In light of the events at East High School today, we will be canceling or rescheduling our competitions and practices for the remainder of this week, 3/22 – 3/26. This will align with the closure of the school for this week. This will include all on and off site practices and competitions. We must provide the opportunity for our athletes, coaches, and staff to take the necessary time to decompress, reflect, and attend to their emotional and mental health needs.
There will be more communication in the coming days about what spring break athletic schedules will look like. We will need to discuss this with our school leadership, district leadership, and local authorities in order to receive more guidance on how we will conduct future athletic events. Until that time please do not gather for practices on or off site from East.
Please communicate this information to your entire athletic programs including athletes, their families, and your coaching staff. Also, see the communication directly from East High School and Principal Walker about school closure and other pertinent information.
If you need access to mental health support, services will be available for East High School students and staff at Manual High School (1700 E 28th Ave, Denver, CO 80205) in the gymnasium from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. on Thursday and Friday.
If your student needs to access East High School to retrieve their belongings they will be able to enter the building from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. on Thursday and Friday.
