Parent Involvement

How Parents Can Help the Coaches

  • Excuse all absences in advance with one of the coaches.  The attendance office does not inform coaches of excused school absences.  Athletic absences may be excused in advance by the athlete or his/her parents by notifying a coach with a phone call or voice mail, a note left in one of the coaches’ school mailboxes, or by dropping by their class rooms
  • Be mindful of team practice/racing schedules when arranging appointments and family trips.  Team Calendar
  • Attend meetings! Meeting announcements will be posted on this website throughout  the season.
  • Take digital photos, print or slides to contribute to the Team Photo Book, the end-of-season slide show or the season CD summary. Add them to our Shutterfly account.
  • Volunteer to transport our team tent.  Tent Sign Up
  • Organize fund raising activities.
  • Donate equipment, money, or time to the team.
  • Make your home available for team dinners.
  • Make sure your athlete has a pair of new (or nearly new) running shoes.  Running shoes last for 300-500 miles.
  • Consider buying your athlete a digital wrist watch (running watch).  These may be purchased for as little as $25 at a store such as Target.
