Brrrrrrr…….this afternoon our athletes braved the sub 55 degree temperatures as our Socal winter continues on for a brisk practice!
We continue to be inspired by the enthusiasm and good attitudes we see on the field. Keep up the good work, 10U.

We have been gently reminded that my good friend, Coach Jim (12U Coach), brings Dum-Dum lollipops as a special treat to some practices, so stay tuned and keep coming to practice 🙂

With a meet coming up, please remember that we’re all on the same team and continue to be encouraging to all of our teammates! One of the best parts about running is that you can improve individually with practice and hard work. When you improve in event that becomes a Personal Record (PR). You’ll begin to hear us talk about PRs in practice, since every athlete has the opportunity to improve throughout the season!

We are now less than 60 hours away from our practice meet. Please try to get enough sleep and eat healthy/hearty meals, so you can be at your best. It is forecasted to be in the 40s at 7:45am when we arrive to warm-up for the meet. Remember to dress in layers, since it should warm up to the 50s as the day goes on. Please bring your water bottles to take on the field. You’ll also want to bring food/snacks/etc., but these need to stay in the stands and off the field.
Finally, remember, that this is our practice meet and there may be delays as we are all learning together. Your patience is appreciated and please reach out to me or any of the coaches with questions.

As a reminder, athletes sign-up for their events at practice. This year, we have paperless sign-ups using Coach Ryan’s web-based app. Thanks to all the parents who have reached out to me for sign-ups when their athletes were unable to sign-up at practice. Please reach out to me via email or text by tomorrow (Thursday) if you need to sign up or modify any of your sign-ups.

Stay strong, 10U….”WE LOVE TO RUN!”

If you have any questions, please email or call/text 805-822-9341
