We are excited to get the season rolling. We are thrilled to see many kids out for track. It is an honor to coach these great athletes and great students. We are already impressed by their positive attitudes and willingness to work hard towards goals. We hope to be able to help all the student athletes improve and succeed, while having great fun on the journey.
We plan to communicate frequently via this blog, emails and Remind text messages to discuss training, upcoming events, great performances, etc.
Thursday, March 2nd, is the Parents’ Meeting in the high school cafeteria at 6:00 pm. We hope to see at least one parent/guardian per student-athlete - and students are encouraged to attend as well! We will discuss policies, expectations and standards, schedules, procedures, and many other things. Please read the Track Handbook. (Attached in the Expectations section of the website.) Then ask us your questions on it and other things at the meeting. The handbook contains the current schedule. The schedule will be updated on the website. Please print and sign the last page of the handbook and bring it to the Parents’ Meeting.
The AAHS Boy’s have been picked, at least by one knowledgable coach, as the pre-season #3 in the State! The Girl’s rankings haven’t come out yet, but we coaches think they may be ranked even higher!

Practices are Monday- Friday at 3:00. Distance runners will also have non-mandatory, but highly encouraged, Saturday practices on those Saturdays we don’t have meets. These will be at varying times and locations. I also encourage distance runners to go for a brisk walk on Sundays - about an hour or so. It would be great to do this with your parents and talk about track, school and life.
We will be getting information out in several different ways.
As always, if you have any questions please ask us.
We look forward to a great season!
