We as a coaching staff are excited to be back for another year of fun, hard work, and accomplishments! 2014 was a memorable year for Wildcat XC, and we hope to help make 2015 even better! Here's a couple of quick reminders before our season starts:
1. Our first official practice is Monday, August 3rd from 7:00-8:30 AM at the DHS track. For the week of August 3rd-7th, we will practice from 7-8:30 AM each morning. Afternoon practices will start Monday, August 10th, when practice will run from 3:30 to 5:15 PM. Please be reminded that practices for the week of August 3rd-7th are mandatory unless coaches have received notification of a previous commitment.
2. All runners will need to submit a completed physical form before they are allowed to practice. The NEW physical form can be found under "Forms" on the DHS XC website, and it can also be found on the DHS website and the DeKalb County Schools website. Please make sure that all parts are completed, including all signatures. Athletes without proper forms will not be allowed to practice. NO EXCEPTIONS!
3. One date to put on your calendar: Our annual XC Booster Club Meeting will be on Thursday, August 13th from 6-8 PM in the DHS cafeteria. All runners must have a parent/guardian present at this meeting, where we will go over team expectations, our schedule for the season, as well as have the opportunity to purchase uniforms and spirit wear. Please make sure that you are able to attend!
4. Our meet schedule is finalized and was posted last week on the team website under the 'Schedule' heading. We will discuss some of these meets in more detail at the August 13th meeting, but should you have any questions at this time, please email Coach Boucher.
That's it for now! We look forward to starting the season off strong on Monday at 7 AM.
