Practice Week of September 5

Week of September 5th:

In order to accomodate for the later start to the 2017-2018 school year, we will be offering practices the week of September 5th to get the season well under way before the first meet.  Since this is still summer for the students, we do not expect that most of the team will be able or approved to attend. We look forward to having a meeting after the half-day school day on September 11th and our first full-team practice on September 12th. More information to follow.

The September 5th start date is a change from the information provided at the end of year interest meeting - there is a later start date due to board approval of September 5th as the start date.  Please review the updated handout here: https://tinyurl.com/HMSXC2017 

Flexibility is going to be necessary this year as we navigate how our practice needs may change due to having active construction sites at the schools.  Please follow our Remind text message alert account so that you may receive text message alerts of changes or details of practice locations.

About the 2017 Season

About the 2017 Season:

 

Staff  

Mrs Courtney Baker - head coach cbaker@haddonfield.k12.nj.us

Mrs Maureen Baker - assistant coach          

 

Program philosophy The middle school cross country program exposes the team members to distance training and racing at the 1.5 mile distance. Students of all ability levels and experience are welcome to become part of the program. They will be challenged to steadily progress in their training and improve in their performances.

 

Communication Updates will also be provided here on the "team news" tab on this website. Please follow us on twitter for updates, as well: @HMSTrackXC  All team members and parents are asked to follow the Remind account (formerly known as Remind101).

 

Remind Account Sign Up: Sign up for text message updates to be texted directly to you from the coaches by texting the number 81010 with the message @hmstrackxc or go to https://remind.com/join/hmstrackxc for updates.

 

Permission and Medical Packet is due to the nurse's office before practicing with the team (please see additional details at the bottom of this note regarding required medical paperwork and online registration).  Packets take approximately 24 hours to process.  Newcomers are always welcome to join the team anytime during the season.

 

Preparing for the Season: Training before the season is not expected for the team; most team members are new to running at the first practice. As an option for those who have asked how to prepare themselves for the season, this schedule is being provided that offers three levels for athletes to work with the goal of increasing mileage/time spent running: http://www.tinyurl.com/HMSXCSummer2017

 

PracticesWeekly schedules will be posted on the e-board.  We will have a combination of practices at the middle school and the high school.  For HMS practices, students meet in the gym and practices will be held from 3:00-3:45. For HMHS practices, students meet at (and may be picked up at) the flag pole area at the Kings Highway main entrance from 3:30-4:30.


Running/Clothing: Wear supportive running shoes to prevent injuries. Bring extra sweats to keep warm in the later part of the season. Bring a labeled or identifiable water bottle.

Attendance: We understand that the students may be involved in other activities that may conflict with the cross country schedule. We hope the students are able to attend practices/meets regularly but understand when this is not possible. The athletes can notify coaches at practice when conflicts are expected for the season.

Practice/ Meet Cancellations: In the event of rain or inclement weather, cancelations will  be announced to the students before the end of the school day.  This will occur over the HMS school announcements.  Cancelations and/or changes in scheduling will also be posted on twitter (@HMSTrackXC) and Remind text messaging system.

More Information About Registering for the Team: 

Online registration for high school and middle school sports (all seasons) is open.  The link is located on the right side of our athletics website (http://haddonfieldathletics.org).

Online registration and medical clearance must be completed in advance of the actual first practice to avoid delays in participation. Middle School students DO NOT need to complete Impact Concussion Testing.

  • Questions regarding medical sports forms should be addressed to our School Nurse, Mrs. Barranger (mbarranger@haddonfield.k12.nj.us) for the middle school.  Hard copies of the Medical Sports Forms should be dropped off or mailed attention to the school nurse.
