We will begin practices on Monday, February 11, 2019 at Rowlette Park in Tampa. The first 6 weeks will focus primarily on conditioning. Following our conditioning cycle, we will transition to the track at King High School (Mon & Wed), and Temple Crest Park (Tues & Thurs) for the remainder of the season. Practices will be held Monday thru Thursday, and Saturday for the conditioning phase from (5:30pm – 7:00pm Mon – Thur, and 9:00am on Sat). Our track phase will also include Monday thru Thursday practices with an additional weekend run for our distance athletes on non-competitive Saturday’s. Distance Athletes will have some variation with practice sites to accommodate their longer runs. We ask parents to please invest in a comfortable running shoe for your athlete. Shoes worn during practice should be designed for middle distance running. In addition, please dress appropriately for the weather conditions. We anticipate cooler temperatures for the first few weeks of the conditioning cycle. Last, please make sure that you provide water for your athlete during practice. Hydration is critical to safety and performance. The coaching staff will factor in water and rest breaks through the course of practice. Proper hydration starts at home, not at practice!
