You may turn it into the office or to Mr Comp, our Athletic Director, with the $30 Registration Fee, BY FRIDAY, September 8th.
Our first XC practice will be held on Wednesday, September 5th. Our runners will train together on M/T/W from 3:50-5:00, every week through the last week of October.
- Mondays we do a timed distance run (at Fernwood)
- Tuesdays we run hills (at Humboldt Park, just south of tennis courts)
- Wednesdays we focus on speed (at Humboldt Park, just south of tennis courts)
- On Thurdays, we race (with the exception of our Conference meet which is held on Saturday, October 14th)
We have five coaches, all parent volunteers, who love to run and are passionate about sharing that love with our young athletes. Our intention is to prepare the children to reach their own personal goals, support one another, and most importantly HAVE FUN! Thank you to the parents and families for supporting our team! YAY Fernwood!
Coaches Abby, Amy, Casey, Erin and Lorinda
