Practice Time

Meeting Location
Runners will be excused from class a couple minutes early by their teachers to meet the coaches on the playground picnic tables for roll-call. The teachers will have the team roster and they will know who is on the team and send them in the right direction.
Homeschoolers: Runners will need to be at the playground picnic tables for roll-call. This area can be accessed by entering the elementary school doors. Please ring the bell for access. 

After Practice Pick Up Information
Practice will mostly be held up at the soccer/football practice field - so we will walk up there as a team along the sidewalks. If the field is too busy with other sports, we'll practice on the playground field. Either way - we will meet parents for pick up at the elementary school doors by the CSCS sign at 4:15pm.
