About the 2018 Season

About the 2018 Season:

 

Staff  

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

Mrs Maureen Baker - assistant coach 

Mrs. Michelle Cannaday - 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.  We do not expect athletes to train prior to the season, but since many team members have asked how to best prepare, we have an optional summer training plan available here for guidance:  https://tinyurl.com/HMSXCSummer2018 

 

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).- directions are below. We will text the schedule weekly and any reminders or announcements, as needed. 

 

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).  Newcomers are always welcome to join the team anytime during the season, but please understand that after the start of the season we need to allow for processing time for the team nurse and team doctor to clear the student to practice. 

 

More Information About Registering for the Team:  https://haddonfieldathletics.org/main/adnews/ID/46711124 

**Please note that Impact Concussion Testing is NOT required for the middle school team**

 

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. (linked above)

 

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 middle school 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.

*We will have interest meetings at 12:15 on Thursday September 6th and Friday September 7th in the HMS gym.  The meetings are optional and will be brief to pass out team information.

*Our first practice will be Tuesday September 11th 3:00-3:45 in the middle school gym.

 

Home Meets- Team members meet at Pennypacker Park picnic table area (near the baseball field/small parking lot in the park) at 4:00.  Middle school boys and girls races will follow the high school races and will begin at approximately 4:45-5:00.  The  middle school course is 1.5 miles within the park.  It is at the officials discretion, based on number of athletes running, whether the girls and boys race together in one race or in two separate races.  This is unknown until race time. (A note about parking: Please park in the Bancroft/Hopkins Pond lots.  The small lot at he course fills up, and it will be blocked off for parking shortly after 4:00, since the high school and middle school race course runs along the lot entrance.)

 

Uniforms - Shirts will be available to purchase online for $11 during August - from 8/7 through 8/27.  To allow for shirts to arrive in time for the first meet, the order is being placed prior to the season. If you miss the order deadline, coaches may have extras available in limited sizing or the student may wear any black shirt of their choice during races.  Please see the link below.  The team uniform is the short sleeve black top and the other items are optional.

 

Here is the link to purchase uniform (short sleeve top) and other optional gear (by popular request): https://tinyurl.com/HMSXC2018Gear


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 to all practices and meets.
 

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.

Meet Schedule: Please see the "Schedule" tab on the team webpage.

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.
