When: April 5 – May 31; Wednesday, Thursday and Friday; 5:00 – 6:00 pm
Where: NCHS Track
Who: Girls and Boys in Grades 5 – 8
All Girls and Boys will have an opportunity to try running, jumping, sprinting and field events throughout the course of the season. We are all “Born to Run!” All are welcome.
NCBlazers will meet at the entrance to the track nearest the parking lot where the Farm Road fields are located at 5:00 p.m. for team warm-up and speed and conditioning drills. The practice will then last until 6:00 p.m. where pick-up will be from the same parking lot. The Blazers are in the WCC league and therefore will host 2-3 competitions at NCHS this session if we are allowed. All competitions are optional, but it is a good way for your child to evaluate his or her development and bring the NCBlazers community together to celebrate healthy, fun competition. Competitions usually start at 4:00 pm. Due to the inconsistencies of spring weather, there may be a conflict with “HOME” competitions and practices with the HS. Every attempt will be made to make-up any scheduled practices missed as a result. We will have practices during the Spring Break in NC.
The HS schedule is not available at present so it is hard to determine when there will be scheduling conflicts. The one thing we do know is there will be scheduling conflicts. Every effort will be made to make-up missed sessions.
A competitive singlet will be provided to all athletes who are registered. Coach Martin or his representative will collect sizes of all registered Blazers during one or more of the practices to create a ‘bulk’ order during the first two weeks of practice.
When registering it is important to have your 10-digit USATF-CT membership number handy. Registration cannot be completed without it.
Covid 19 has made it difficult to positively determine if and when there will be competitions, especially against teams from other towns. We will be following all Covid protocols, masks (when not running), 6′ distancing (when not running or doing dynamics) and not sharing personal water bottles. The key word this year has been “FLUID”. Flexibility is a must, and we will do everything possible to maintain each child’s safety.
REFUND POLICY: Full refunds minus administrative fees during the first week of the program. No refunds after week one.
