Practices will be Monday, Wednesdays and Friday 3:30-5:00 pm until further notice.


Athletes should meet at the back of the gym. Backpacks will be left in the gym while we work out. Please dress appropriately, bring water and tie back long hair. Sunscreen is a great idea. Sunglasses are recommended since the wind and glare can be fierce on Hart's track. Students may miss only one practice per week due to other commitments.

Weekly Meet Treats
Water, fruit, cookies, snack foods ... it's a great way to reward our athletes, keep up their energy and stave off hunger on the drive home. We have 100 athletes to feed, it is a great idea to coordinate with a another parent to provide snack one day. Please e-mail the coach to let her know at which meet you'd like to provide snacks. Thank you for your support.

IMPORTANT: WE NEED PARENT DRIVERS. You must be approved through the school district before you can transport students. Please look below for the forms that must be completed for parent drivers. (You can use your computer to fill out form.) Plan in advance. It takes time for your driver and volunteer clearances to be approved.
