10U Bantam practice this week

Hi 10U Bantam families,

Just a quick reminder that we have a normal practice schedule this week including practice at our regular time tomorrow (Monday) on President’s Day. Our Bantam team is so fun this year and we are having a great time out there! We appreciate all of your support, and please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions.

10U Bantams – Specialty practice info

February 7, 2020

 

Hello 10U Bantam families,

 

I absolutely love the enthusiasm of our athletes and have already had multiple questions since our first practice about specialty practices. Our Bantams are ready to work!! 

 

Specialties will start next week, and the available options are listed on the Tigres website under practice schedule or listed below for your convenience. Remember, your athlete can come to all specialties or none, it depends completely on their schedule and desire to try some of the events (i.e. shot put and high jump) that they will not experience during our team workouts. 

 

We had such a fun and productive practice on Wednesday!! Hopefully, your athlete had a great introduction to our upcoming season 🙂 

 

See you Monday!

Coach Kristin

10U Bantam practice reminders

Good Morning 10U Bantam parents,

 

Just a quick couple of reminders for tonight’s practice:

 

  • It is supposed to be COLD this evening and we will be talking for a bit before we get them moving so please have your athletes arrive with sweatpants and warm jackets.

 

  • We will be ending earlier today so please arrive to the Buena athlete to pick up your athlete by 5:30-5:45

 

  • Please label EVERYTHING that they bring to practice.

 

Feel free to email me with any and all questions that you have bantams@venturatigres.org

 

We are so excited for our season to begin!!

 

Coach Kristin

Welcome to 10U (Bantams) 2020

February 3, 2020

 

Hello 10 U Bantam families!

 

Thank you for attending the parent meeting tonight. Your 10 U Bantam coaching staff is really looking forward to our first practice this week.

 

I wanted to recap the most important information that we covered:

 

Coaching staff:

Kristin Daw – Head Bantams coach

Patrick Brown – Assistant Coach

JJ Chapman – Assistant Coach

Jason Daw – Assistant Coach

Molly Brennan Dufau – Assistant Coach

Sean Feeney – Assistant Coach

Sean Fisher – Assistant Coach

Dave Gilbert – Assistant Coach

Joanne Johnson – Assistant Coach

Leah Kahler – Assistant Coach

Autumn Watson – Assistant Coach

 

Goals for the season:

  1. Safety
  2. Fun and an appreciation for the benefits of sports and exercise
  3. Good Sportsmanship
  4. Developing your athlete’s abilities and helping them to achieve their goals

 

Questions and information:

The most efficient way to communicate with me is through email on the website. I am also available for questions after practice. I will email on a regular basis, especially once the meets begin in March. You can text me as well, but I am a teacher and am therefore slow to respond during the school day. 

 

Practice:

10 U Bantams will have team practices on Mondays and Wednesdays from 4:30-6:00 at the Buena High School track. 

Parents are welcomed to stay and watch, but only athletes and coaches are allowed on the field. There are no sign in and sign-outs this year, but at the end of practice, we will keep our 10 U Bantams on the field until they get a visual on their ride home. Please be on time for pickup; a coach must stay with your athlete until you arrive.

Athletes will work with specialty coaches on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. 

 

Mondays

4:30 – 6:00 pm  Team Workout — Endurance

 

Wednesdays
4:30 – 6:00 pm  Team Workout — Warrior

 

Tuesday – Specialty practice – athlete choice
4:30-5:15 Hurdles Strength/Plyos Shot Put High Jump
5:15-6:00 Hurdles Strength/Plyos Relay High Jump

 

Thursday – Specialty practice – athlete choice
4:30-5:15 Long Jump High Jump Speed Develop. Recovery Run
5:15-6:00 Long Jump High Jump Speed Develop.

 

Friday – Specialty practice – athlete choice
4:30-5:15 Hurdles Relay Long Jump
5:15-6:00 Hurdles Shot Put Relays

 

Preparation for practice:

Please have your athlete dressed and ready to go. Our athletes LOVE their Tigres gear, which means many of them have the same water bottles, bags, and sweatshirts. PLEASE label everything!! If they need a snack before practice, please have it be something easy to digest. They are only allowed water in their water bottles on the track. 

 

Attendance:

We understand that other sports, illness, and injury may conflict with practice. You do not need to email me if your athlete will not attend practice, but I would appreciate knowing if they are injured as well as if they are not going to attend a meet.

 

Meets:

10 U Bantams will have the option to participate in the following events:

 

Field – Long Jump, High Jump, and Shot Put  

Relay – 4X100 and the 4X400

Distance – 800 and 1600

Sprints – 100, 200, and 400

 

Athletes can participate in 4 events at each meet with a maximum of 3 running events. The 4X100 counts toward their running event total, but the 4X400 is free 🙂

Some athletes will already know what events they are interested in, while others are still deciding. We are going to encourage them to try everything until they decide which events they like the most. Event sign-ups will be on Mondays and Wednesdays by my bag on the field. 

 

Setting up the relay teams for the 4X100 and the 4X400 takes time. Once your athlete selects the relay, they are making a commitment to three other athletes on the team. Relay teams will be created based upon times and attendance. There may be times that I cannot build a full relay team due to numbers, but I will do my best to make certain it is a fair process. 

 

I will send out more information regarding meets as the dates come closer, but for your future planning, the meet schedule on the website is accurate and meets typically go from 8:00 – 3:00ish. 

 

We look forward to greeting former and new athletes on Wednesday!!

 

See you soon,

Kristin Daw (805) 766-7171

Bantams- End of season picnic information

Hi Bantam families!

 

Yesterday was the last meet for many of our athletes, and I was SO impressed with their focus in their events and support for their teammates! We finally had some warmer weather and there were some impressive PRs for the sprinters. Watching their progress throughout the season has truly been awesome!

 

We hope that you put the May 19th date for the Tigres picnic on your calendar! We will be at the Ventura Unified School District Service Center on Stanley. Bantams are being asked to bring desserts (and any needed serving utensils) for 12 people and the Tigres organization is providing pizza and water. Lunch is 12:00-1:00, and after lunch and announcements, we will break into our smaller age groups.

 

If your athlete has misplaced something over the course of the season, the lost and found will be brought to the picnic location for one last look before everything that is unclaimed is donated.

 

I hope to see you there,

Coach Kristin
