Track and Field- Updates

Athletes and Parents,

 

It was great seeing so many of you yesterday at the school pick up day for athletics. While it was brief it was nice to see so many familiar faces.

 

A few items to cover-

 

  1. If you purchased a jacket, you should have received an email from Team Sales regarding the status. When they arrive we will make sure to communicate that with you.

  2. If you did not receive your spirit wear or uniform we will have one additional day for pickup. We will communicate that date and time once we have it set.

 

 

Go Rams!

Track and Field- IMPORTANT INFO READ AND RESPOND

Good Afternoon Rams, 

 

Please read and respond. Next Wednesday, May 20th from 12-1PM we will have curbside pick up for all remaining Spirit Wear ( including backpack orders and jacket orders). In addition, we will be distributing team uniforms to those individuals that placed an order. 

 

You have probably seen the Riverside mass email from Mr. Anderson referencing spring sports uniform drop off (and senior cap and gown pick up).  Obviously track and field athletes have nothing to drop off to us, but we will be able to use that 12 noon-1pm time slot to quickly give you your uniform that you purchased and the spirit wear that we have at this point.  We obviously will have 100+ track athletes coming through in a one hour time slot, so we need to be prepared ahead of time to hand you a packaged bag with the items that we owe you.  This will be your one opportunity to pick everything up. 

 

That being said, by Saturday, May 16th, please send me your uniform size and we will have it ready for pick up from 12-1PM. Uniform sizes will be on a first come first serve basis. In addition, you MUST respond by Saturday, May 16th with your size to confirm you will be picking up your order. Those that do not respond will need to wait for a later time to receive uniforms. 

 

If you are unable to come at this time and would like to have a friend pick it up, you must respond by Saturday, May 16th with that information. No orders will be handed out without your permission. 

 

We are following LCPS policies and procedures and must compile to their rules. Please help us as we navigate this process. 

 

As much as we would love to and WANT to talk with you, we will need this process to run smoothly and efficiently. When you arrive we will get your order to you and then you will need to exit the line. 

 
 

 

We thank you for your understanding and help with this process. 

 

Go Rams,

Track and Field Week of May 11th

Good Afternoon Rams!

 

Best of luck to all those taking AP tests this week! The remainder of sprint wear will hopefully be completed in the next week or so. We are continuing to get updates and hope to have this completed soon. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

 

Below are the details for the week:

 

D-Squad-

This Weeks Challenge- Full Details were sent out on Friday post Zoom Meeting. If you did not receive the email or would like the full details please feel free to email me.

 

5K a day (at a minimum)

50 crunches ( at a minimum)

Tallest TP Stack

-Submit your points/ totals on Thursday by 12.

-Submit your TP stack photo as well.

 

Zoom Call/ Follow Up This Friday!

 

Sprints-

Monday: 20 mins run. Easy.

4 strides afterwards. These are about 100 meters. Starting slow and building up speed into a stride. About a min after each stride.

Wednesday:  10 200s. With 30 seconds rest between reps. This is hard! Boys and girls, if you’ve been keeping up with the workouts the best you can considering the unfortunate circumstances, you’ll hopefully be able to this with relative ease.

Boys: 40 secs or below

Girls: 48 secs or below

Don’t go fast on the first couple and think you’re feeling great. The 30 sec breaks are gonna catch up to you once you fatigued and on the 7th repetition or so.

Friday: Staying with the longer volume theme of the week...

Mile repeats. 3 of them. 5 mins between each. No set pace. Just push yourselves a little bit. Not an easy or comfortable pace like Monday. Sprinting isn’t comfortable. Especially once fatigue sets in. Endurance work like this not only helps build your lungs up for longer distances but also mentally prepares you to fight through fatigue during the race as well as negative thoughts. If you can mentally fight through things, you’ll be surprised just how much you’re body can take.

Core workouts for Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday.

Tuesday:

400 run. 90 secs or so.

50 meter lunges. 20 push-ups. 10 tuck jumps.

400 run.

20 push ups. 20 sit-ups. 50 meter of broad jumps

400 run.

Set break 5 mins. Repeat once.

Thursday:

5 mins of core exercises if your own choice. No slacking! Lol it’s only 5 mins.

Saturday:

Jumping jacks for a min.

Jog in place for a min.

Butt kicks in place for a min.

High knees in place for a min.

That’s it. Only 4, hopefully CONTINUOUS, mins of cardio.

Additionally (optional) if you have a jump rope. Try to jump rope for a whole min without stopping.

Great exercise for the power in the legs and your brain. The focus it takes to get the rope around for a minute without messing up is very transferable skill to a sport like track and field

Track and Field- A Letter For the Team.

Dear Rams, 


 

There are no words that will make sense of this whole mess. There are a lot of uncertainties right now but one thing I am certain of is that you can always find comfort in sports and your team. The beauty of sports is that it brings people together even during the worst of days and times. It brings people together from all different walks of life, backgrounds, nationalities, ages,  economical status, and so forth. 

 

When we started the season I told you that Track and Field was one of the greatest sports in the world. I told you that it is one of the few sports you can do at any age. Remember the I told you that you can compete even when your 100 years old… don’t believe me? Look up Ida Keeling! She not only competed but she set a record! 

 

Track and Field is not just a high school sport, it’s a life sport. Remember that! 

 

For now, our season is paused but we are not finished. We started the season and we will finish the season, the right way. It may not be anytime soon, it may be different, but I promise you we will finish. 

 

To the Freshman Class and First Time Track Athletes- I am sorry your start to track and field was this but know that your journey has only just begun. And when we do get back out to the track remember you will need to work that much harder to represent the athletes that didn’t get the chance to end their season how we hoped. You will race harder knowing you have to finish the work that our seniors started. Remember that every time you toe the line, enter the circle, etc. 

 

To the Sophomores and Juniors- Remember what it felt like to compete and use that to fuel your fire going into next season. Remember the senior class that laid the foundation to a great season and use that to motivate you more than ever. You have work to do and the young ones will be looking up at you! 

 

To the Senior Class- I am sorry. I wish I had something better to say other than that I am beyond sorry that you were robbed of your senior year. This season we had a number of senior athletes that joined us Freshman year, that dedicated each year with us. Thank you for the laughs, the love, the hard work, the dedication to our program, and most of all the memories.

 

This is my promise to you… that we are not done. Again, I am not sure when or where or what… but we will make sure that you go out with a BANG! And that you get one last time to toe the line, enter the circle, attack the hurdle, and make a jump. One thing I have always loved about our alumni is their dedication to our team, last year we had a number of athletes return from college to cheer the Rams on. I hope you will do the same, remember the door is always OPEN. You are always welcomed. You will always be a Ram, always. 

 

The past few days have felt longer than ever, I say this often and there is no better time to say it but my favorite part of my day is the time I spend coaching you at practice. When I was a high school student athlete, I lived for the moment the bell rang so I could hurry off to practice/meets/ games, fast forward many years later and I feel the same way. I love spending time with you and watching you learn, progress, grow, and just have fun. 

 

I’ll end with this, for me the greatest thing about Sports is the family and community it brings. It brings people together, complete strangers together. We may not be able to practice right now and we may have to keep our distance but we will always be a RAMily. You will always have your teammates to lean on. Remember that. Do not hesitate to reach out, we are still here for you. In fact, we want to hear from you! 

 

Myself, Coach Robertson, Coach Lyman, Coach Green, Coach Frank, and Coach Warthen want you to know that our season may be canceled but we are always here to coach you no matter what. And we are always here for you.
 

#Rollside

#Ramily

 

Go Rams! 

 

Sincerely,

 

Coach Gina 

 

Now as for some questions…. When we get answers I promise you will get answers. For now we are finding out things like you moment by moment. This is untapped territory but I promise when we have answers to questions such as Spirit Wear, Uniforms, Pictures,etc. We will communicate those with you.
