Practice on Wednesday and Friday

Tue October 20 2009 @ 08:03 PM

Athletes and Parents.

We will be starting practice on Wednesday and Friday of this week at 5:30PM instead of 6:00PM. The earlier start will help us to complete practice in daylight rather than finishing in darkness as we have done the last couple of practices. Please make note of the earlier start time. I may be a little late tomorrow because of a meeting at work, but Mr. Schoener will be there at 5:30PM.

See you tomorrow. Coach

5:30PM Start for Practice on Friday 9/18

Thu September 17 2009 @ 03:21 PM

We are planning on starting practice at 5:30PM on Friday instead of 6:00 PM. I know that a lot of team members are planning on attending the Welcome Back to School Dance and if we start practice a little earlier you will be able to get there on time and won't miss Fr. Steve spinning your favorite disks.

See you at practice!!

Practice on Friday and No Practice on Monday

Thu September 03 2009 @ 11:06 PM

Hi,

I just thought that I would send out a reminder regarding practice. We will have practice tomorrow at 6:00 PM at Deep Meadow Park. We will not have a scheduled practice on Monday, Labor Day September 7. I am recommending that you try to run on your own this weekend and on Monday. I know that a number of people are planning on getting in a last weekend at the shore, but I would recommend that you try to run approximately 20-30 minutes of easy paced distance running each day.

I will see you tomorrow at practice.

Practice Reminder

Tue August 18 2009 @ 09:53 PM

It was nice to see everybody at practice on Monday. We will again be practicing at Deep Meadow Park from 6:00PM to 7:00 PM tomorrow Wednesday August 19.

Just a reminder about rain: Typically we don't run if it is raining. The general rule of thumb is that if it is raining consistently 15 minutes before a scheduled practice we will cancel practice.

See you tomorrow.

Coach Ed

St. Joseph/St. Robert 2009 CYO Cross Country Season

Sun August 09 2009 @ 10:38 PM

Greetings Atletes and Parents:

Welcome to the 2009 SJR Cross Country Season. We are a little over a month away from the first XC meet of the season on Sunday September 13. I am planning to start training sessions for the season a little earlier than we have done in the past years, with the hope that the athletes can get in a little more base milage in before the first meet. We will begin workouts on Monday August 17 at 6:OO PM at Horsham Park. Workouts will generally last about 1 hour. Parents are encouraged to run with the athletes or take advantage of the trails for walking or other fitness activities. The Archdiocese CYO Coaches meeting is scheduled for Sunday August 23. I should have the complete meet schedule after that meeting.

Our goal is to build individual fitness, self esteem and to foster a sense of teamwork and spirt among all the athletes on the team.

It is not too late to join the team, we are still looking or more athletes in order to have enough runners to compete in each of the three age graded catagories. We really need more girls and 7th and 8th grade boys to join, so if you have any friends who are thinking about it encourage them to come out and try practicing with us to see if they like it.

In the meantime you should begin running on your own to begin develping your fitness and start logging you base mileage before the start of the season. Also, now is a good time to begin getting new running shoes if you need them. I would suggest that you go to a store that specializes in running shoes and will make sure that you get the proper shoes and the right fit. Two stores that I would recommend are Bucks County Running Company in Doylestown and Born To Run in Springhouse.

I look forward to seeing you all on Monday August 17 at Deep Meadow Park on Horsham Road (across from the police station). We will meet at the picnic pavillion. If you have any questions feel free to call me.

Regards, Coach Ed Clark 215-343-0525 home 609-868-9506 Cell
