Last night was our very first practice for the kids running distance and we couldn't be happier with the results! We had 12 kids join us for the practice and there is still time to join the team so don't delay! Practice was held at the new Cal High Stadium under the stadium lights. As a coach I was happily amazed at the level of effort and energy from these young kids! Early on we asked each one them why they were there. And by the way we told them it was an acceptable answer to say that Mom made me come =-) but to our joy most simply said " I love to run!" Those that did say Mom made me we hope and in fact is our goal to have them change that answer in a few weeks time! We are now getting ready to place uniform orders and bags for the kids as well planning out the race schedule for the season. Kids will attend 5-6 races as well as end of the season banquet in their honor to celebrate all of their accomplishments with awards and recognition. We are excited forward to this first season and excited to see how the kids set goals and accomplish them! If you have a child 9-13 that is interested please reach out or even just come out and talk to us at practice M W F 5:30 to 6:30 PM at Cal High Stadium on the very east side of the stadium.
