A bit of an unconventional start to the season due to the location change and some fog rolling in, but it was great to see the Youth Intermediate team.  I know the coaches were all thrilled with positive attitudes of everyone – this is going to be an AMAZING year!

We covered a ton of information with the team, but here are a few things to note:

  • Specialty practices are starting tomorrow.  Please see the schedule of options at: https://www.venturatigres.org/practice/  We strongly encourage all sprinters to do one of the Speed Development sessions on Thursdays and the distance runners to do the Recovery Run on Thursdays.  Please take advantage of these specialty days to try new things.
  • The first homework assignment for the team is to get on the team page (YTH&INT 13-16) and look over the training plan located on the left hand of the page.  Athletes should familiarize themselves with this page so they will know what we will be doing every day.
  • The second homework assignment is to fill out the goal sheet, also located on the left hand of the the YTH& INT team page.  Fill it out and bring it turn it in to the coaches at practice.  It is really great to look back at them at the end of the year and hopefully when they are old like their coaches, they will look back at these goal sheets with some great memories.

We hope all the athletes had a great time and can’t wait to see everyone at the next practice.  If you have any questions or concerns, please email youth@venturatigres.org or call/text 650-678-3681
