1st Day of PracticeWe will cover info at practice as the week goes on, but here is the run down of what to expect on the first day.
Be at the track ready to warm-up before 3:10. 3:10 is our official start time each day. On Monday, we will check to make sure registration has been completed by the athletes, introduce the coaching staff and go over team policies and expectations. We will also go over what the rest of the week looks like. Afterwards, we will break into event groups.
Monday's will be our team meeting days. This is where we will talk about what happened at meets the week before, recognize outstanding performances and talk about what to expect the week ahead.
Every athlete will join an event group to train with. The event groups are as follows:
- Middle and Long Distance Runners (800, 1600 and 3200 runners)
- Sprinters and Jumpers (100, 200, 400, hurdles, high jump, long jump, triple jump, long jump and sprint relays)
- Throwers (discus and shot)
Run Colorado Spike Night
Every member of the team will need to have a quality pair of running shoes or throwing slicks. We recommend that you go to Run Colorado and get properly fitted for shoes by doing a gate analysis (it's free!) on their treadmill. We also recommend that athletes have appropriate competition shoes such as spikes to compete in at meets.
On Friday night from 5:30 to 7:30 we will be having our MVHS Spike Night at Run Colorado off of I-25 and Arapahoe. That night all running shoes, spikes, throwing slicks and apparel will be 20% off for Vista athletes. Pizza will also be provided for everyone.
Here is the link to our team handbook where you can find out additional information on the season along with all of our team policies and expectations.
