Hello Titan Parents!!
Below is some helpful information for you to know about this season.
During the Athletics Period:
We have broken the girls up into 4 running groups; sprinting, mid distance, distance and training. Each group reports to their group coach for attendance, injuries and any other concerns. Our goal is to set up a team atmosphere for the different running events and camaraderie between the girls. We will be timing the girls to push them to get ready for competition and celebrating their personal records through out the season. Grading rubrics will be used for each group and will be posted on our website and hallway as soon as they are established.
Sprinting – Lauren Roig - firstname.lastname@example.org
Mid Distance – Iesha Collins – email@example.com
Distance – Tracy Brantley – firstname.lastname@example.org
Training – Amanda Reyes – email@example.com
After school practice:
Only field events and relays will practice after school. Field events consist of high jump, long jump, triple jump, hurdles, shot and disc. Practice will end every day at 5pm and one coach is signed up to stay with all athletes until they are picked up. Please pick up all students in the back of the school between the boys and girls locker rooms. That way we can keep track of all students still waiting. Please try and be there as close to 5 as possible and no later that 5:30. We know that sometimes traffic and commutes sometimes make it tough, please let us know about special cases.
On rainy days we will either practice inside in the gyms and weight room or we will cancel it. If we do cancel it we will make the decision before the end of the day, so students can make their busses or get word to you if they are a car rider. We will also be sending out text through remind 101. If you have not signed up yet, please see our website to sign up for reminders.
Before school time:
Our goal as a staff is to open the Athletic hallway door at 7:45. We will do our best each day to do this, but please understand if there is a day it is not open. Please have your athlete wait by the door until we arrive. This is an opportunity for them to stretch and foam roll before we start our work outs. Also, this is a great time for them to do any exercises that the trainers have given them.
Our track meets this year is on Thursday. We will be leaving straight from school to the meet sight. Please see the schedule attached. We will provide meals before the students leave school. It will be $5 a meal and they will need to turn in their money on the Friday before the meet. All meets except for the meet at Taylor middle school the girls will have to be picked up from the meet site. There will be a bus bringing the girls back from Taylor to Tippit. A coach will stay with them until they are all picked up at all sites.
Track meet times:
Each track meet is run by different schools, so we can not guarantee when your child's event will run. We will do our best to keep them on time. Your child will know the order of events and can text or call to update you on how the meet is progressing. We also can not guarantee when the meets will be over. We will do our best to send a remind text when we are leaving the meet site, but please understand if we fail to do so. We love coaching your athletes and often get wrapped up with them in the moment of competition. We will also ask them to text or call you as we are heading home.
The weather this time of year is always tricky. We can start running in beautiful 70degree weather, but end in cold, damp 40's –50's. Please make sure that your daughter brings layers to wear and also a blanket if needed. Also during Athletics class we will practice in cold weather. It is a good idea for them to keep a sweat shirt or tights available in the athletics locker in case they need it.
The practice shirt will be used for practice. We would like each girl to have one of these shirts for class. They will wear their team shirt instead of the red athletics shirt. If the are financial concerns, please have your student let their coach know.
If you can not make the payment now, but would like to still get one you can post date a check and please add a note to the bottom of the form. Make all checks out to Tippit Girls Athletics.
Thank you as always for sharing your daughters with us. We enjoy working with them everyday and pushing them to exceed their own expectations and experience success. We love it when they say, "I didn't think I could do that" and it is our goal that those feelings of success and confidence are something they carry with them for the rest of their life.
Please email us if you have any questions or concerns and if you would like sign up on the specific Remind 101 group. Follow the directions below.
