Practice Will Run 2:15 to 3:15 Next week due to Early-Out

** CLIFF NOTES: PICK UP EARLY DUE TO EARLY-OUT NEXT WEEK; BE ON THE FIELD AT 3:15 PM. YOUR KIDS WILL WAIT FOR YOU ON THE FIELD OR IN THE OFFICE IF YOU ARE MORE THAN 10 MINS LATE.  **
  
We had another amazing track practice this past Wednesday. Thank you to Coach Fharo, Coach Beky and Coach Janene for all their hard work out there. They were working hard, let me tell you. The kids broke into three groups to practice sprinting, soccer kick and broad jump. Sounds like they may try softball throw next week. Any expert throwers out there, we'd love to have a softball coach out on the field . . .
 
Coach Tim Vadney ran a truly valuable training session this past Sunday morning at South High to get the kids used to being on a track and to practice their running form and racing starts. Next such practice will be Sunday, March 22 from 9 am - 10 am. Parents are encouraged to supervise their children as necessary. This is an informal event and attendance will not be taken. We know this is not the best time for everyone, but we encourage anyone who is free at that time to take advantage of it.
 
Good luck in the marathon this weekend, Coach Vadney!!!!!
 
Pick up time has not gone as smoothly as we would like, so we have to ask you to do us a favor: 
Please come to the back field to pick up your child rather than wait in the parking lot or outside. 
We will attempt to make eye contact with you or whoever is picking up your child and note their departure. We will bring anyone left after 10 minutes to the office.
 
There was some confusion last week, with kids asserting their parents were waiting in the lot or out front and darting off, as well as a complaint from a parent who felt we did not appear to be taking enough responsibility for the kids' safety at dismissal. Safety is a concern for us.This is why we are asking parents to be at the field when practice lets out. If you are able to help us dismiss the kids safely when practice is over, or help in anyway, we always welcome more assistance.
 
We do plan to take attendance, but we do not plan to require a signature to release your child, check id's at pick up, etc. If you have any concerns about your child in particular, whether it be health, safety or otherwise, please email or talk to one of us after practice and we will do our best to accommodate your situation.
 
Please remember, this program is run by parent volunteers with limited free time, just like you. Your child is in no way obligated to participate. And please, please check your email or the website before practice each week for any schedule changes. We do not plan to send home paperwork every time we need to make an adjustment.
