Both UIL & Katy ISD policy are suspending running club activities until July 13th, therefore we will not hold formal practice this week. Updated training & logbook sessions will occur daily on the Google Sheet. We are looking into extending summer training an additional week.
We are setting up a tentative schedule for our 2020 summer running program. We will begin on June 8th, 2020. Times and locatio We are looking to focus on providing training to prepare athletes for a hopeful 2020 cross country season. We will abide by CDC, KatyISD, and AAU policies to train and keep your athletes safe.
We are an AAU affiliated club that is focused toward junior high and high school athletes who plan to compete in cross country and mid-distance events (800m & higher).. All junior high and high school athletes are welcome and no experienced is necessary! We have all levels of athletes and each is placed within an individualized training which will also include flexibility/core training as well as character development-To become a better athlete, we must become a better person first!
The purpose is to develop cross country and mid-distance athletes in running technique, racing strategies and experience in competitive training sessions, and equally important a developed oxygen delivery system for the upcoming competitive cross country and track & field seasons. Each runner involved in the program is unique and will be coached in a manner that will allow for their best and most positive attributes to be fully demonstrated in an athletic manner. Runners that have no experience will be given as much attention as our many athletes that have run at the state meet level. The primary objective is for each athlete to fully achieve a personal sense of value and purpose towards the betterment of their athletic ability
Even though we have trained a mix of 120 state cross country qualifiers over the past 15 years, we will do our best to make sure your athlete is treated as if they if they were a member of our family. Athletes will begin training on June 8th to kick off our 2020 summer training season at a designated time between 6:30am and 7:00am. Check the practice calendar for times and locations of this week’s practices as I will be updating this week for more details. I will be adding more terms and info about the training throughout the coming weeks. The goal between now and the starting date of Orange Crush is to see how many days in a row you can run. It does not matter if it one mile or 10 miles a day, or 7 minutes or 107 minutes. A Consecutive day or “CD” is simply a nonstop run, that needs to be timed and measured. Exactness is excellence. Practice timing your runs and writing down your training in a log sheet. When logging your runs– call each day’s workout training a “CD”. Depending on your experience and age your goal may be for the new runner- one mile a day non stop, or more experienced runner-5 miles a day nonstop. If you are not sure where your mileage level should be email Coach Scott Kenney (boys)or Coach David Pollack (girls). On Monday, June 8th, we will ask to see your log sheets from your training to determine how you should progress. Make sure to bring: 1. Your Desire to Excel, Positive Attitude, and Honesty! 2. Your log sheets filled out bring them so we can continue from there. 3. Your Watch-Timex Ironman Triathlon is a great watch to get 4. Running Clothes and shoes 5. Fluids! *Orange Crush Running Team is not affiliated with KISD.
We look forward to working with your athletes and helping them achieve their best!
