Winter Conditioning, 2018-19
Once again, Raptors are offering Winter Condioning ("WINCON") for our members (or anyone who would like to join the club--all are welcome) in the fall, winter and early spring. This program began two years ago and has beena huge success. The coaches have fun, the kids are great and everyone stays in shape so they will be ready when track begins.
We are still unsure about the venue. We are hoping that Raptors can use (or even RENT) the facility at Cougar Field behind AMS, but, as of now, we have no idea whether that will be okayed or not. Last year we met at Espresso Roma, near the MLK campus and that worked well, so we might start with that.
As far as the workout days and times, the workouts will probably be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays, starting sometime around 3:30-3:40 p.m. so kids a from surrounding middle schools can get to the workouts without undue stress.
Depending upon the popularity of the program, and the need for more specific coaching in jumps, relays, sprints, etc. we may expand the days by one or two. . . buts that's in the future. One small step at time!
We hope to start immediately, which shouldn't be difficult since we've been having Raptor workouts throughout this XC season.
If you would like to kept up-to-date on WINCON news, simply email Raptors coach (one of eight!) Rick: email@example.com and ask to be put on the WINCON email list!
