Mon 10/22: No Practice

 

**Tues 10/23: **Make-up Meet Away at Wardlaw-Hartridge (Inman Ave Edison) and might also include South Plainfield (to make up that missed Meet)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ALL students MUST have an updated physical and concussion test before they can participate in any after-school sport. Students must be cleared by the School's Doctor and Nurse before participating!!!

 

 

PARENTS - Please Note: Parents are welcome to attend any/all meets whether they are Home or Away. If your child is going home from a meet with you, please let one of the coaches know, so that we are not searching frantically for a child that left "half an hour ago".

 

 

 I. For Meets at Roosevelt Park - park your cars in the lot in front of the ice rink, then walk towards the tennis courts / Parsonage Road to get closer to the Start / Finish Line.

 

 

 

 II. Although scheduled to begin at 4:00, we often have to wait until the other teams arrive, then we walk the course, so everyone knows where to run and no one gets lost, then there is stretching, bathroom breaks, etc. So the actual race sometimes starts a bit later than 4:00. The start time of the race(s) is determined by the Officials, NOT the coaches!!! When there is a large number of runners, we usually split the girls and the boys into different races. Sometimes there is a staggered start, meaning the girls race starts 2-5 minutes after the boy's race, and at other times they wait until all of the boys are finished before the girls race even starts. This is decided by the Officials, not the coaches!

 

 

 

Roosevelt Park is also the home field for some of the areas private (Catholic) schools and Edison's Middle Schools, so we might have to wait until some of those races are finished before we can have our races.***
