Hey Cougar XC Athletes & Parents –
Thank you for a great 2017 season. It has definitely been one to remember! This will be the last weekly email – good luck to each of you in winter and spring sports and we will see many of you again next year! Here are a few final announcements:
End of Season Banquet –
The end of season banquet is at Aspen Hall at 5pm this Sunday, November 5th. This is an opportunity to recognize the involvement and accomplishments of every athlete on the team and we encourage attendance of all athletes and families. Most athletes dress semi-formal (no need for parents to dress up). We will be having food catered by Tate & Tate (Santa Fe Chicken or Veggie Enchiladas) and the team will cover the cost of athletes. Please let us know if you will not be attending so we don’t count you in the total for meals! Attendance by families is free but food is only provided to those who have pre-paid. We still need some volunteers to help with setup. Please let us know if you are willing to help!
Team Uniforms –
If you haven’t turned in your uniform yet, please wash it and bring to the banquet in a plastic bag with your name on the outside. We will submit the uniform fine list to the front office after the banquet so please don’t forget to bring it!
Winter/Spring Sports/Cross Training –
We’ve talked to athletes about this plenty, but we can’t stress enough the importance of off-season training to maintain fitness until next season. Participating in a winter and spring sport and running a minimum of 2-3 days a week will make a huge difference in minimizing injuries and improving performance next year. Running 3-4 days a week and participating in Footzone Tuesday Performance Group (TPG) workouts on a semi-regular basis is highly recommended to varsity level athletes hoping to take their performance to the next level. To get more information about TPG workouts, subscribe to the weekly emails at firstname.lastname@example.org
Have a great week and we will see you at the Banquet on Sunday!
