2014 Season Practice

· Mandatory every day from 3:30 - 5:45; some days might be shorter, but runners should make sure their schedules allow for the entire practice.

o Runners should not leave practice early.

o If runner is absent from school or leaves school early because of illness, she must email all of the coaches to inform them. It is not OK to tell a teammate and have them tell the coaches.

· For practices off campus (Murphy Candler, Mercer), we will use buses for those students who cannot drive. Parents will pick up students at SPX.

· If a runner misses practice, she will not run in the upcoming race

· If a runner is injured, she should continue to attend practice and participate as she can (i.e. stretching, ab workout, helping coaches & managers with timed runs)

· We will not be making allowances for other sports or activities a student participates in outside of school. Runners must be committed to the cross country program from August (June) until mid-November. Runners should not use other running coaches during the season.


· All runners are expected to participate in every meet. Meet schedule will be completed by mid-June.

· Students may not drive themselves to meets, but may ride with parents or other families

· We will take one team bus to each meet for those who need a ride

Team Mom

· Helps with communications between coaches and families

· Each runner and parent not already receiving email from Julie Braxton (juliebraxton@yahoo.com) should email her so that you can be added to the list serve.
