Welcome to the 2014 spring season of Regal Runners!
We are looking forward to a great season and while we are still working on the practice schedule, we are planning on practicing three days a week. Our first practice will be this Sunday March 9th at 2 p.m. at River Dell High School track. Pick up is promptly at 3 p.m.
As a general rule the track is usually colder than other locations around town so please dress accordingly. We encourage many layers, hats and gloves and as you warm up you can peel layers off. Please bring water and either a yoga mat or towel to stretch on as the ground maybe damp. Please keep in mind that bathroom facilities are also not available.
For those that are new to the program, welcome! One of the fun things that we do is to run a contest to design the slogan and logo for the season's team shirt. For example, last year our slogan was “I run like a girl…try to keep up!”, our logo on the front of the shirt was a sneaker print and on the back a girl running into the sunset. Since we would like to practice in this shirt, submissions will be due at the second practice. Entry sheets will be given out at this Sunday's practice or you can print the entry sheet here and submit it to us on Sunday. We will also have sample sizes of the shirts at the next 2 practices.
Your daughter will need to sign in and sign out at each practice. If you have not given your daughter permission to walk home, please tell her she may not sign out until her pick up person has arrived. We appreciate your courtesy in arriving promptly for pickup. Ellen Goria will be covering for me at this Sunday's practice as I am committed to take a training class over the weekend.
The remainder of the schedule will be sent out shortly, but in the meantime, please save the date for Saturday, 3/15 at 9 a.m. Road Runner Sports in Paramus will once again host us for shopping and refreshments. They will also speak to the girls about how to prepare for their first 5K and select proper footwear. REGAL will receive a percentage of the sales from the event.
And our amazing volunteer coaches,
Liz, John, Christine, Christie, Ken, Shawn, Jerry, Americo, Tom, Theresa, Lisbelt, Phil, & Maureen
