PRACTICE CONCEPTS
Practices focus on the basics (putting down a base) with a focus on a dynamic warm-up, general fitness, running, developing core strength, and stretching.

WHAT TO BRING TO PRACTICE
Athletes should dress in layers, wear running shoes, and bring a water jug, hand-towel, and spiked track shoes.

INCLEMENT WEATHER
If inclement weather warrants a cancellation of practice, we will send emails and text messages to parents.  We will also post a cancellation notice on the Shocker Track Club Youth Team Facebook pages.
