We start August 7th 7am at Nottoway Park. Meet near the bathrooms.
Weather update: we plan on having practice at Nottoway...look for an update Sunday night if there is close to a 100% chance of thunder/heavy rain we will meet at Madison in the cafeteria, hopefully it will be fine. Just a heads up to check your email.
Late forms: If you have forms to turn in do that at 630am on Monday. You might get to run if all signatures are in order and concussion information is good. Late Physicals will get cleared after practice, so you should plan on being at practice to help and can run the second time trial.
Freshmen run a mile time trial on 8/7 and a two mile time trial on 8/14. No freshmen are cut from the team by time. Those that can't run under 14 minutes for boys and 18:00 for girls will stay in the park until they improve their endurance.
Non-Freshmen: run a two mile time trial on 8/7 Boys must run 13:00 for two miles (sophomores 13:30)
Girls must run 17:30. Make the time = make the team.
Those that don't will still run at practice Tu-Fr and try the two mile time trial again on 8/14.
We will talk to each person that doesn't make the team by 8/14 about their options: workout on own Tu-Th and try for a final/last chance on Friday 8/18 coming early 615am (warmups) ready to go at 6:35am. After that there is no more chances to make the team.
Those making the time to be on the team are expected to follow team rules and be at practice every day. After the time trials, one could cut themselves and quit or be dismissed by not following team rules. Team rules will be posted under team files.
We ask that at least one person from each family is on the e-mail list. Parents/athletes can all join the list, but at least one should be on the list to get updates on the season.
