July 21-26

Check out the last post and give your opinion.

You only have 2 and 1/2 weeks to get prizes for the Mustang Stampede on August 9th.  We would like everyone to bring people to the race and get at least 5 prizes we can give away in the drawing.  If you have a sponsor of at least $200 that wants their name or logo on the back of the race shirt you only have two weeks.  Talk to Coach McKissick about the fundraising if you have questions.  

Aggie Camp is next week on July 28-30 or 31.  This is a great camp that Coach Barnes, and Coach Line from Bear River, put on with Utah State University.  Camps are a great experience and a lot of fun.  They give you a chance to learn skills to be better and be able to bond with your teammates and other runners from other schools.  HERE is the info for Aggie Camp.  We strongly encourage everyone to try to go to a camp this summer!   We have enough going from the team to get the discounted price.
Mail form and money by July 24th to:
Aggie Track Club
7400 Old Main Hill
Logan, UT. 84322

Calendar?

I have reattached a google calendar at the bottom of the blog.  I have had a recent request to have this option by a parent of an athlete on the team.  However, I have some reservations about a google calendar because it is extra work to put events on it as well as the posts and pages.  I also want everyone paying attention to the the posts and pages on a regular basis not just the schedule of when and where practices are.  If you or your parents would like me to have a calendar as well I will be willing to accommodate this request.  If not many of you really care then I will leave this option off, because it is an extra thing to worry about.   If you would like to have the calendar on the blog then leave a comment on this post and I will base it off of your responses.
Thanks,

--Coach Barnes

Lava and July 14-19

Those going to Lava Camp need to meet at Monarch Meadows at 8:00am on Monday with all your gear and be ready to run, because we will run as soon as you get to camp.  Hopefully you athletes and your parents have communicated with each other about rides to and from camp and what tents you are staying in.  Coach Haag and Coach McKissick will be there Monday morning and will have directions how to get to camp.  Everyone else, practice will be as usual this week, and Coach Denos will be there.
HERE is the Diving Tower release form for those that want to do that at Lava Camp.  You must bring this with you, they no longer let coaches sign for you.  An item that is sometimes handy to bring to Lava as well, if you have room, is a camp chair.

The Gravity Hill 5k is this Saturday July 19 and is put on by Coach Stockton Denos.  It starts on the east side of the State Capitol at 8:00am.  We would encourage you and your family members to participate if you are able.  You can register at www.runnercard.com or click HERE.  Team and family members can enter the code "herrimanxc" and receive 40% off your registration!

Lava Camp is next week July 14-16 and we have been selecting kids that we think will be top kids this season or kids that have been working extra hard and have potential.  We will only take 11-12 girls and 11-12 boys to Lava.   If you have been invited to camp, and have confirmed your spot with the coaching staff,  HERE is the info you need.  Checks need to be made out to James Barnes and handed to him by Thursday.  
HERE is the Diving Tower release form for those that want to do that at camp.  You must bring this with you, they no longer let coaches sign for you.

Everyone else, and those attending Lava, should plan on going to Aggie Camp on July 28-30 or 31.  Camps are a great experience and a lot of fun.  They give you a chance to learn skills to be better and be able to bond with your teammates.  HERE is the info for Aggie Camp.  We strongly encourage everyone to try to go to a camp!

XC Summer Start!

Summer XC is here already!  Hope you are all ready to get rolling.  Those who have not yet registered need to get that done ASAP, that is a priority!  There is not a deadline to register yet, we just ask you to do it when you come out.  If you can't come out the first week we will still help you to register at the time when you are coming out, so don't worry that you might not be able to join us because we have already started.  The info for registration is posted in the last post.  We will meet at Monarch Meadows Park the first couple of days this week, but might change some of the mornings to a different spot, so check the blog again before Wednesday morning.  We will also let you know what is going on this week at practice.

We had a great time in NYC at the Adidas Grand Prix for the Dream Mile this weekend.   Congrats to Lucy Biles for making it to that race and representing our team on a National and World level, it was super cool! 

Congrats to Rory Linkletter for winning the Utah Valley 10k yesterday in Provo and running an awesome time and CR (course record) or 31:21!

We need 8 volunteers to help with the Fort Herriman Days races put on by Run Gr8 on Saturday morning. If you are intersted in helping let Coach Barnes know ASAP.   Those who would like to run one of the races can register HERE.
