Hello Parents and Athletes!
In case you missed the parent meeting or would like a recap, here are the important details from last night’s Zoom meeting. Beginning next week, the athletes will be allowed to begin training with the coaches. For now, they will practice twice a week with coaches. Their coach practice days will be Mondays/Thursdays. The first practice with their coaches will be next Thursday, September 25. (6:00-7:30ish pm, West Creek Park). The other days, they will continue running on their own or will practice in small groups. PRACTICES ARE VOLUNTARY. THEY ARE NOT MANDATORY.
*IMPORTANT* Before the athletes are permitted to run with coaches, they must turn in TWO forms: a COVID-19 ATHLETE LIABILITY RELEASE form and a FOOTHILL LEAGUE PARTICIPATION ADMISSION TICKET. Please bring BOTH forms to the first practice. The liability release form needs to be turned in ONE time, at the first practice. The admission ticket MUST be filled out and turned in at EACH practice. The forms can be found on the Valencia High School website under the Athletics tab. The forms are also located under the Resources tab for your convenience.
If you haven’t already, please download the GROUPME app and add both parents and athletes to the Valencia Cross Country group. If you have questions, please contact Coach Matan. This is where the Coaches will provide important updates to practices/races/etc during the season.
All other information regarding race schedule/uniforms/team donations and general cross country business will be forthcoming as we get closer to the season. Feel free to contact the coaches/Booster Club board via GroupMe app or the team gmail account. (under the Contact Coach tab) Please stay well! We are hopeful and looking forward to a great cross country season! GO VIKINGS!
