To the 5th, 6th, 7th, & 8th grade Albers/Dville Parents,
My name is Nancy Rakers, and I am the new Albers/Dville Cross Country Coach. Please talk you your children to see if they are interested in joining cross country this year. We are signed up for about 5 meets, with the first cross country meet in early September and the last meet will be in early October. The meets are typically no more than 2 miles. Most meets will be after school, but we may have a couple Saturday morning meets.
I would like to start conditioning practices prior to school starting to get the kids ready, and was hoping to start the week of July 1st. I plan to have 4 practices a week during the summer, 2 in Damiansville (Mondays and Fridays) and 2 in Albers (Tuesdays and Saturdays). The kids are not required to make all 4 practices each week. But with having practice in both towns, I was hoping to alleviate some of the carpooling problems.
Practices would start at 7am and will last about 30/45 minutes. Albers practices will start at the JC Park and Damiansville practices will start at the Damiansville Park.
Once school starts, practices will either be after school or in the evenings. Hoping to try and not conflict with 5th/6th grade basketball or soccer.
Cross Country is a pretty inexpensive sport, and the only item I recommend is that the kids have a good pair of running shoes with a lot of support. Our practices will start off slow to get everyone acclimated to running, but I am hoping to have the kids up to 10 miles or more a week by our first meet.
My main goals for this year are for the kids to be able to run 2 miles without stopping by our first meet and most importantly have fun!
This year we will be making Albers/Dville history by being the first ever Cross Country Team! If your child(ren) is(are) interested, please let me know by Wednesday June 26th. My cell number is 618.204.1109.
Parents- feel free to join us too!
