Practice Saturday, Meet Sunday - Important Information

Good morning Everyone.


We are practicing Saturday January 5, 2019 at 2 PM, Bowie High School and have our second All-Comers Meet on Sunday January 6, 2019 at 7 AM, Prince George's Sports & Learning Complex. I will be out of town with my High School team on Saturday and will arrive at the meet on Sunday afternoon. Coach David will conduct practice and will be in charge at the meet along with Coach Paul and Coach Princess. Please work with them. Any and all assistance is appreciated. Remember, we will need parents to pick up the 8 & under group at the finish of their events.


Saturday's practice will not last the full two hours. The sprinters will work on starts, relay exchanges and perform some light running drills. Coach Paul has discretion on the workout for the middle distance and distance runners.


***** ALL ATHLETES WILL COMPETE IN THE AGE GROUP THAT THEY WILL BE ON AS OF DECEMBER 31, 2019 *******

***** The age groups are as follows: 8&under; 9-10; 11-12; 13-14; 15 & up *****


On Sunday, all participants will run the 55M unless one of the coaches decides otherwise on the day of the meet. The sprint group will run the 400M and the 200M. Some may be pulled into the 800M depending on the meet flow. We will try to run as many 4x200M relays as possible. The lineups will be determined at the meet depending on who is available. Coach Paul will determine what events that the middle distance group will run.


If your child has practiced the hurdles, shot put, and long jump, they will compete in those events.


Finally. If you need a uniform, please email myself, kevindt66@yahoo.com and David, davidthompson2016@gmail.com, with your child's name, age group, and size. I will try to find a uniform top or club t-shirt in their size and have it for practice on Saturday.


If you need to reach David on Sunday morning, his cell phone number is 240-406-6239.


I'll see everyone on Sunday.


Thanks.


Coach Kevin
