News and Announcements

We wrapped up the first few weeks of Winter Track 2020 today with 102 of you attending, led by our senior leaders, Eva Patt, Peyton O’Hara, and Brooke Transue! Thank you to all of our seniors who were willing to help guide our team during this challenging time!

Reminder Spirit Wear pick-up will be Wednesday Dec 23 as per email directions sent out by the vendor and via track email. So reminder, no practice on Wednesday Dec. 23.

Keep following the training plans, and I will be sending out practice links from our virtual practices as reminders, just in case you forget over the next 2 weeks. Our next virtual practice will be Monday January 4, 2021!

Stay well and awesome and enjoy your Holiday Break!

We held our first virtual practice on Monday spotlighting seniors Halle Jennett, Madison Brown, Clara Kennedy, and Ashley Ryan! If you aren’t getting emails, please email me ASAP.

Our second virtual practice will be tomorrow Dec. 16, same times, putting the spotlight on seniors Matthew Bruchak, Davonte Hinds, and Geoffrey Kleinberg.

Friday’s virtual practice will spotlight seniors Lily Shields, Kyla Fanning, Keerstin Augustin, and Abby Barnes!

We are so proud of our seniors and can’t wait for you all to get to know them more!
Enjoy the snow!

What a great turnout and great workout for you all on Friday! Did you enjoy the JOY playlist as you did the workout?

Sprints/jumps/pole vault- that workout was not easy, and you all did so well completing it in your zones with your pods. 30-60-90’s is a workout we repeat a few times throughout the season to be able to measure your progress. Well done!
Distance – You handled those 200’s with control and progression, and some of you surprised yourself with just how much speed you have. Awesome work! Again, we will repeat that workout a few times during the season to measure your progress. And for those of you who took on the 400m challenge – bravo!
Throws - Lily, Molly, and Kyla were leaders to get you back to Coach Petre’s throw workouts, and we couldn’t be prouder. We will get you throwing when we return.
Hurdlers – It’s almost like you all didn’t have a 9 month break from the last time you hurdled to now, going over those hurdles with ease. Very impressive, and I wish we had more light and time in the day for you to have continued practicing!

So, now we turn to virtual practices to be able to continue to learn training and what winter track is “usually” about. I will be sending out zoom links this weekend for each practice. Practice times remain the same for the groups. Each zoom meeting will include 2 senior leaders and we will be introducing them and sharing pics/video of their previous track experience. Then they will lead you through the training plan that day, and demonstrate one or two of the details of the training plan. You’ll be on your own to do the actual workout, so find a safe area to do the workout. Rodale park has a soft track (in Emmaus behind Pizza Hut), or Emmaus Community park, or an empty parking lot., or even in your neighborhood. In order to be eligible for a Club letter, students must attend 75% of the meetings, so I will be taking attendance for each meeting. It is highly encouraged to attend, as you will get to know each other. You will have the opportunity to ask questions as well.

See you on zoom on Monday! Check your email by tomorrow night!

Good evening,
We still get to have practice tomorrow with some nice weather! Training plans were sent out last night, in preparation for the anticipated shut down beginning 12/12/20 – 1/3/21, confirmed today by our Governor in effort to get COVID more under control.

We will resume in-person practices 1/4/21. We WILL be holding virtual practices starting Monday 12/14/20 via zoom, which will be mostly led by our seniors. Seniors will introduce themselves and share some wisdom, then I will share a video clip or picture from their indoor track experience, and then they will instruct in the training plan that day. The virtual part should not last more than 30-40 minutes. I’ll email out more information later this weekend. On a good note, for our pole vaulters, our brand new mat system arrived!

Good afternoon all,       

Well, we surely got more than a “dusting” of snow and it has been advised for practice to be canceled today, as some have to travel far to get to and from practice.  

        Looking ahead, Friday looks nice and warm for practice, so let’s focus on making it to Friday’s practice! 
Sorry for any inconvenience and see you then,
Coach Kami
