Season Start

First of all BIG THANKS to all the parents who helped with the Stampede on Saturday!  You were awesome!  Good job to the athletes that went out and got good prizes for the race and for all those who helped out.  The race went smoothly and everyone seemed to have a good time.  Thanks to our SBOs for their help too.  Results are up on the Stampede Page.
Thanks to Jorgensens for hosting our team BBQ!


Time Trials will be at the High School Track Monday Night.  Start showing up between 7:30-7:45pm.  Plan on doing this for your Family Night and bring the whole family.  We will introduce the coaches, captains, and team, have a parent meeting while the kids are warming up, and the races will be run under the lights.  The parent meeting will be at about 8:00pm.  Everyone bring a treat to share for after the race (fruit and healthier treats are also good to bring).  You don't need to set treats out until after the races.  The team disclosure is on registermyathlete to be e-signed, but parents and athletes should all take a few minutes and read and become familiar with the disclosure before Time Trials.  HERE

Parents, we also have new parent and family shirts with our new logo that you can purchase for $10. 
We will have the new parent shirts on Monday night at Time Trials so you can purchase them there with cash or check while supplies last,

Eligibility was due last week on Thursday, but a lot of you still haven't turned it in, which means you will not be on the team if you don't hurry.  Check out the Eligibility Page for instructions and please get it done and in at the beginning of Time Trials.  YOU CANNOT COMPETE UNTIL EVERYTHING IS TURNED IN!

Uniforms need to be paid for in the main office.  They are $45 this year and sizes need to be given to Coach Barnes with your receipt. Use the office pay form on the Eligibility Page when you go into the office if you can.  This needs to be done ASAP!  You cannot compete without a uniform.

Spirit Packs are ready to order this week.  They will be $160 for the pack and we will have some additional items that may be purchased in addition.  More info is on the Eligibility Page and at the parent meeting tomorrow.  These will need to be paid for in the main office.   Sizes need to be given to Coach Barnes with your receipt.  The gear is way nice this year, even better than past years and the best swag to date.  We would like everyone to have a spirit pack and you will want one too.  We will not order extra or do additional orders.

If you have gotten a sponsor and have turned the money into the main office then you can talk to Coach Barnes about using it toward Fees, Spirit Pack, Uniforms, etc..  You can still get sponsors at anytime, but we cannot reimburse you for any past purchases after the fact.  We are trying get away from banners, and some of you missed the boat on the stampede shirts, so we would have to figure something else out.  We will start our Snap fundraiser on Tuesday at practice.  

Spike Night at RUN GR8 will be on the Tuesday the 16th.  If you are new or need new spikes this would be a great time to get spikes for the season.  There will be discounts on trainers as well.
