Foot Locker and November 28- December 3

Please get the Foot Locker permission slip HERE to Coach Barnes ASAP if you haven't already.  MAKE SURE YOU GET THIS TO COACH BARNES before we leave or you WILL NOT get on the bus!

Remember this is through Provo High, not Jordan District, so you will all need to have parents excuse Thursday and Friday for vacation and take a vacation release around to your teachers.  Make sure to get any work needed so you don't fall behind those two days.

I have been very impressed with most of the athletes who have been at practice every day or close to everyday.   This group will go this weekend and race well, maybe even PR.  Kudos to you! 
On the other hand, I have been extremely unimpressed with some of your efforts to be at practice, and I am not talking about this past Holiday week.  I think some of you think this Foot Locker trip is just a "Joy Ride", but it is not.  This is the Western US XC Regional Championships that we are attending, and some of you could get extremely embarrassed!   Everyone that is planning on going to Foot Locker should make it a priority to be at practice the next couple of days.  
--Coach Barnes

Monday - 3:20pm @ Rosecrest Park

Tuesday - 3:20pm @ Monarch Meadows

Wednesday - 3:20pm @ Rosecrest Park

Thursday - Leave HS to California at 6:00am

 A couple of things to know for newbies:
  •  We are staying at a the Fairfield Inn in West Covina CA.
  •  You need money for food and snacks, other than the breakfasts provided by the hotel.
  • I have to have the permission slip signed and in my hands before we leave.
  • Don't forget your running shoes and racers.  You might want road shoes or blank spikes in your spikes for the race.
  • You need to have parents excuse you or do a vacation release for Thursday and Friday if you haven't already, (this is not a Jordan District activity, it is through Provo High).
  • You need to be caught up on classwork and assignments before you leave.
  • Do NOT test rules on this trip, especially in the hotels or you will be going home via parents.
  • We will get back to the HS late Sunday night.
  • Let's go have fun, race hard, and be the most respectful and well behaved team there!
Big congrats to Rory Linkletter who earned a spot on the Canadian National Team this weekend to compete at the World XC Championships in Uganda in March.  Rory was 6th place with a 30:07 10k on grass and mud!  Great job Rory and congrats!

Thanksgiving and November 21-26

Big thanks to all athletes and parent who came to the banquet last week, and to all those who helped with prep and take down.  Special thanks to Deborah Bracken and those who decorated for the banquet! 

This is the last major week before Foot Locker, so make it a good one.  Some of you have really slacked in your training a bit, and others have done well.  Hope to see you all out everyday we can train up until Foot Locker.  Hopefully you all registered for your races at Foot Locker, because the prices shot up last week.  There is a Moratorium for us Thursday through Saturday, so you will be on your own.  
Please get the Foot Locker permission slip HERE to Coach Barnes ASAP if you haven't already.

Monday - 3:20pm @ Rosecrest

Tuesday -  3:10pm @ Monarch Meadows - Turkey Bowl anyone?!

Banquet and November 14-19

Banquet 
The XC Banquet is this Friday November 18th at 6:00pm in the High School Tech Atrium.  Cost is $11 per person and that amount needs to be paid in the Main Office into the XC Club Account by Wednesday November 16th so we can have count for our caterers.  Please give the receipt to Coach Barnes.  Dress will be nice dress and Sunday dress for Athletes.  At $11 a person we are not going to get a bunch of extra food, we need a count The Banquet is Sunday dress (boys in shirts and ties and girls in dresses and skirts).
Let people know that might not be paying attention to the blog.

Pay attention to the weather and dress appropriate for practices.  Even though the weather will turned cold it does not mean that you can slack with hydration, sleep, and nutrition.  Doing core and stretching on your own will help too.  Let's work hard and be smart for the next 3 weeks so that Foot Locker is a good experience and then you can take a break!  Some of you have missed a lot of practice and are pushing not going because of not being at practice.  Change your ways!

Please turn varsity uniforms into Coach Barnes ASAP.  Please wash them and put them in a baggy with your name on it.

Please get the Foot Locker permission slip HERE to Coach Barnes ASAP.  Hopefully you all signed up for the race before yesterday because the price just went way up!
