Thanks to those of you who were able to make it to the first week of official practices. We’re going to continue this week to make sure we’re ramping up a bit while still thinking about each athletes current fitness. The main workouts this week will focus on getting a bit more speed endurance in and continued emphasis on strength. If you’re going to miss practices, please make sure you communicate with Coach Young so that he knows it’s an excused absence. The Athletic department is putting an emphasis on athletes being responsible and accountable for showing up and we’re being asked to take attendance for more than just contact tracing.
If you are not cleared to practice (at least Family ID and Physical) you can’t come to practice. Please make sure you get these done as quickly as possible. As we get closer to the season, you won’t be cleared to race until the Pay-to-Play is taken care of.
