The official season is fast approaching, and here are some things to be aware of as we start.
Official practices begin on Aug 12th, at which time, practices become mandatory rather than voluntary. It would help for athletes and parents to read our team policies on our web page www.mohirunning.com
Registration will open on the Monarch HS web site on July 15th, and all athletes need to be registered, with a current physical, before they will be allowed to participate with the team on Aug 12th. Physicals are valid for one calendar year from the date the physical occurs. I highly recommend getting a physical during the summer, as it will be valid for the entire school year for all sports! You can get a sports physical for around $40 at Walgreens on Hwy 287 and Baseline Rd. with no appointment and no insurance requirement. You must turn in evidence of your current physical to the athletic office at school, it can not be done on the registration site.
Our annual COYOTE CHASE 5K RUN will be held on Saturday August 24th at 8:00am. This is our big fund raiser for XC and we ask that every athlete on the team sign up 4 other individuals, along with themselves, to participate in the event. The goal is 400 participants for this years race! We need your help! Registration can be done on-line at imathlete https://www.imathlete.com/#/legacy?url=%2Fevents%2FEventSearch.aspx%3Fterm%3Dcoyote%20chase%205k We will have great raffle prizes again this year, so bring your $$ to buy raffle tickets.
