First - I apologize to everyone who signed up for track and will not be joining the team. I promise this is the last email update you will get for winter track. I will have a final list after Monday's practice.

Parents - these emails are not going to the athletes - please forward it to them.

All updates and links were emailed or posted to Schoology.

We had a few questions by some parents and I would like to provide an update.

We are having practice for all members of the team on Monday (Nov. 13) (the meeting with Mr. Swarm and letter writing campaign is the practice). They are also athletes who need to take the 3200m time trials to secure their place on the team.

Please see the practice schedule for this week (see attachment). The one in the information packet will go into effect after Thanksgiving. My plan is to send the practice schedule on Sundays via email, post on Schoology, twitter and website.

The letter writing campaign is our best fundraiser - so we need the athletes on Monday to bring at least 5 emails (of course we want them to bring more) and we ask that everyone post it on their social media or share it with your friend groups. This is better than selling candies or restaurant night. Athletes can start their campaign at home if they wish (we have included detail on how to complete the campaign in the attachment). The team get 95% of the proceeds. Parents are family are welcome to donate to the team too. If you want get a workout in or do run after please bring your gear to workout.

Sprinters have 3 practices - make sure you are attending the right now. The selection was based on your performance at the two time trials we did last week. If, you were select for night sprints and cannot make it - please attend the afternoon sprints but let us know. If, you have lots of home and will not make the night practices - please go to the afternoon practice - don't just skip the day.

We have another team fundraiser on Thursday, Nov. 16th at Road Runner Sports in Falls Church, this is chance for you to get fitted and purchase shoes - we highly recommend this for athletes new to track and field - without the proper shoes - 99% of new athletes get shin splints because they don't have the proper shoes. If, you have the shoes for over 6 months to year - you probably need new ones. They will have pizza and prizes too. Every runner needs spikes even if you do not get them there - you already need to get fitted so you purchase the right ones else where.

Team Spirit Pack Online store is now open - there is no requirement to purchase anything. We will pick up all the gear and deliver it to the team. Parents, you can buy track gear if you wish for yourself. here is the link -

This Friday, the activities office will be host all the Winter Sports Madness at 7PM with games and fun (see flyer). All athletes are welcome but only seniors will be allowed to participate in the activities - please email if you are interested in taking part and representing the team.
