Who is the coach?
First time runner?
There is nothing wrong with being a rookie. You have to start from the bottom in order to reach the top. Coach MarQuan understands that it is a process and that everyone has a different background, work ethic, and growth pattern. Everyone will be treated with fairness and patience. All you have to do is try you best and you will yield results. You might actually turn out to be a natural runner.
When do practices start?
Parents are responsible for arranging rides to/from practice and events. It is extremely important that students are prepared with the appropriate gear for each practice and event. Students should wear comfortable running shorts, t-shirt, running shoes, and bring a water bottle to all practices and events.
