One parent from every family needs to attend this meeting. If your athlete did not run track season 2014, they will need to be fitted for a new uniform. If your athlete is not fitted at these meetings, their uniform may not be in in time for the first meet.
Clothing orders may also be placed, and sample sizes will be available.
Go to the "Registration" tab above for more information, the link to the registration form, payment and Welcome Letter.
Regular season practice begins Monday, August 25 at 5:30pm, location TBD. Practices are usually held Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday weekly. You must attend at least 3 of the 4 days to be on Cougar Track Club. If you are in other sports factor that in before applying. Exceptions: Soccer- you must attend Cougar practice 2 days and make-up a practice on your own for a 3rd day of running each week. We are not making exceptions for other sports as we do not see enough "training effect cross over".
Team Rule: "Do only that which brings Honor to Yourself, your Team and your Family"
Team Motto: "Reputation is who people think you are and Character is who you are when no one is looking"
Team Motto: "Humble in Victory, Gracious in Defeat"
Team Motto: "The will to win means nothing without the will to prepare"
Team philosophy comes from the famous quote by Pierre de Coubertin who revived the Modern Olympic Games: "The most important thing in the Olympic Games is not to win but to take part, just as the most important thing in life is not the triumph but the struggle. The essential thing is not to have conquered but to have fought well."
Team Strategy: ''As one" We win as One, we lose as One, we race as One single force on the field of competition
