Practice Information

Runners will leave their backpacks by the basketball court fence.  We will begin practice with some fun warm-ups, followed by a game or two in order to get the energy flowing.  We then break runners into grade levels for individualized games, skills, and drills, and finish with a cool down before dismissing runners to their classes. 

Please ensure your child has a labeled water bottle for each practice and comes with sunscreen already applied! 

Practices are cancelled if the wind chill is under 30 degrees, and/or if it is physically snowing or raining. Please look for an email 

Dress for Success:  Runners need to dress according to the weather and in comfortable clothes.  

55 degrees and warmer - Running shoes, t-shirt, shorts.

45-54 degrees - Running shoes, t-shirt, sweatshirt/windbreaker, shorts or sweat pants.

44 degrees and cooler - Running shoes, t-shirt, sweatshirt/windbreaker, sweat pants, consider head band and gloves.  If it is windy, dress one cooler level down.

Running shoes:  We encourage you to purchase quality running shoes for your runner(s).  Please check your child’s current running shoes for wear.  Buy them a little large, not tight.
