All primary and junior students will have 3 practices a week – Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 8:15 am.
Grades 1-2 will stay on school property, Grades 3-8 will be taken to Christie Pits to train (meet at the school and then travel to Christie Pits with Ana. In order to go to Christie Pits Ana must have your permission form.
Students may be dropped off in the morning on Mon, Wed and Friday at 8:15 am at the track. However, the teacher volunteers who are running the training will not be able to escort the students back to their classrooms (as they have to get to their own classes when the bell rings). If a couple of parent volunteers (who are watching their kids anyway) could help with this (especially for the grade 1 and 2 kids) that would be great.
The South Qualifying Meet for grades 1 to 8 will be at Ashbridges Bay on October 8th. This is the only race for grades 1 and 2.
The South Conference Finals will be at Ashbridges Bay on Monday, October 21st for students who qualify from grades 3 to 8 only.
The City Finals will be at Centennial Park on Thursday, October 24th.
Grades 1-2 will run about 1 km.
Grades 3 will run about 1.5 km
Grades 4-6 will run about 2 km
Grades 7-8 will run approx. 3 km
Parent volunteers for the October 8th race are VERY MUCH needed and appreciated. There will be a lot of kids to organize and we will need your help!
