Greetings Track Families,
We'll practice twice this week again, on Tuesday and Thursday from 5 until dark at College Park.
As we mentioned at the parent meet a couple of weeks ago, running shoes are vital for your athletes' comfort, health, and performance. I still see some of our kids at practice in basketball shoes and skateboard shoes. Please put your kids into running shoes. Even more important , please have your runner WEAR those running shoes to practice.
Spikes can be worn on College Park's track if your athlete has a pair. I have replacement spikes in my red bag. No, spikes are not required for our team. Some kids will insist that they must have them, but it's not true. Don't buy their hype. If you do get spikes, only pyramid style spikes 1/4" inch or shorter are allowed in CYO competition. Talk to your coach if you want any additional input.

We have 229 kids signed up at the moment, and we will only accept new sign-ups through the end of this week.
Don't Like Track After All?
If our track program is not working for you or your familiy for whatever reason, I am happy to issue refunds for your fees and either return or shred your volunteer deposit check. Please let me know and provide a mailing address where the refund check is to be sent. By dropping formally, we will know to remove you from the volunteer assignments you may be leaving behind. I am happy to give back at least partial refunds well into the season, so there's no hurry.
Miss Past Track News?
If you are joined us late and want to read past email newsletters, please check the News link on the team web site. The mechanism I'm using to archive these mails is a "blog" which makes me feel extremely trendy indeed. Look out, we could have a podcast next season! (No, I wouldn't do that to you.)
See you on the track,
