Currently, we have almost 120 athletes signed up for our summer program. That's 120 athletes that potentially could help our TEAM this year. But just showing up each day won't be enough. We will have to be ready to work hard each day and be ready for the challenges that lie ahead. As a TEAM we have some big goals to accomplish this year. In order to do that it will take every member of Vista Nation to be on the same page and ready to contribute!
Here is what is going on during week #1.
Payment and Registration
Please bring a check with you tomorrow for $100 to pay for summer XC. Checks should be made out to MVHS XC. If you have not already registered for summer XC please do so. Fees are not due until the first day of conditioning on the 10th, but registration needs to happen ASAP. Currently, only about half of our athletes are registered. The entire process takes about 2 minutes at the link below:
I would like for all of the returning upperclassmen (Jrs and Srs) to talk with the coaches over breakfast after the first run of summer conditioning. This is something new we are going to do this year. After our first TEAM run on Monday, June 10th I would like all of the upperclassmen, both boys and girls, to come up to my classroom for breakfast. We are going to talk about the season ahead and the goal setting meeting after practice that day. I will provide food, all you need to do is show up.
TEAM Goal Setting BBQ's
The Team goal setting BBQ's are set for the following dates. The goal setting meeting is for all members of the TEAM including incoming freshman. I consider this to be the most important conversation we have as a TEAM all season so please plan on being in attendance if you are in town this week.
Boys Goal Setting BBQ: Wednesday, June 12th @ Carson Hart's House (6 p.m.)
Girls Goals Setting BBQ: Thursday, June 13th @ Kenzie Haberkorn's House (6 p.m.)
I will email out addresses and directions for the BBQ's later in the week.
The calendar for the months of June, July, and August are now posted. When changes are made to the practice schedule I will will post on the blog and/or send out an email/text.
Individual Goal Setting Meetings
At the team goal setting meetings you will also be setting some individual goals for yourself. Whatever those goals may be, I encourage every member of the team to to sit down with either myself, or own of the other coaches to talk about your goals. Just let us know when and we will be happy to talk with you about the goals you have for the 2013 XC season.
Workouts for the summer are now posted. Details will be provided during the first week of practice and at the goal setting meetings. I've taken a little bit of a different approach this year with the summer workouts and added both miles and minutes to the schedules. One isn't any better than the other. The reason I did this was to make things easier on people when they are out of town and can't be at practice. Workouts are posted here:http://www.vistanationxc.com/summer-conditioning-camp.html
Need more mileage?
If you look over the workout logs and feel they are not enough for you come talk to me.
I am happy to adjust workout schedules for people, but not until we sit down and come up with a well thought out plan together.
