PRACTICE CONCEPTS
During April, practices will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 600p to 730p.
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.
No specific training for any field events will be provided in April!

During May, practices will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 600p to 730p.
As we move into late May we will begin to introduce younger children to some of the field events as coaches become available.

During June and July, practices will be held on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 645p to 815p.  In June and July we will focus on providing training for all field events in track and field when we will have a full compliment of Coaches. Specific training will be provided for Distance, Sprinting, Pole Vault, Throws, High Jump and Long/Triple Jump

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.
