Welcome to Week Three of varsity track and field!
We've made it through a week at home. Tremendous kudos to those of you who are finding ways to stay physically and mentally active! It takes self-discipline, but you never regret working out (and stepping outside for some fresh air).
Practices, Meets & Meetings
Until further notice, all practices and meets are suspended at least through April 12.
But you still have training options!
We will continue to send training plans to our athletes (see attached). We cannot mandate that athletes complete these workouts, and athletes should prioritize safety and wellness. We are sending training suggestions because we believe that a daily routine which includes physical activity is critical to staying well -- always, and especially in this unprecedented and challenging time.
NOTE: Try to get outdoors TODAY while the weather looks good; it looks far less good tomorrow!
Additional resources, to be used in combination with or in place of, the training we send:
Lap(top)s Under the Lights
We managed to "see" each other via a Zoom call! Not the format we'd planned for, but so good to be "together" for an hour. THANK YOU to our donors. We are leaving our online giving link live. At this point, the athletes have decided to gift money to the Food Bank of the Southern Tier and to the Lansing Lunchbox program. We'll be sending $250 checks to each organization; this leaves us with a healthy account to still meet our program needs when we all return. That said, if we continue to raise significant funds, we will carefully plan to ensure maximizing our athletes' experience with the program, and we will consider making a further gift to the Lansing Lunchbox program. Organizers of the Lunchbox program have indicated how very much they are in need of ongoing gifts; they are a program that budgets for summer months and now is serving even more families for a much longer period of time. We understand that families are having to evaluate their budgets at this moment, and we as a program are doing the same. Any and all gifts are greatly appreciated and will be used to further the development of our athletes, their teams, and their community.
Team Virtual Events
Check your email as well as the website: we will continue to have team events take place! The scavenger hunt was a blast -- more activities to come!
We've set up a shared Google photo album; snap a photo before/during/after your workout and share it! If you're having trouble posting, send it to me and I'll get it up there. It's great motivation to know that your teammates are also training!
Keep in touch, Bobcats, and stay well!
