AAU JUNIOR Track and Field Championships HELP NEEDED

Coach McQuerry ( the boy’s track coach) sent us this email about helping at the AAU National meet being held at Drake University.  Here is an opportunity to work a big meet, watch some talented kids from all over the country compete.  If you are interested read the information below.  Boys, girls and parents are all invited to help out. 

 

Any help is appreciated!

Have the volunteer by telling me

1. Date(s) you want to work

GO TO HERE FOR OPTIONS, Dates, and Events

AAU Meet Sign Up Sheet

2. Sessions you want to work. Sessions are broken down by colors.

3.  Call Coach McQuerry     and signup…..phone number listed at end of posting

 

Hello all. I hope the summer is treating you well. I’ll try to keep this as short as I can as there is a lot of information.

We’ve been given an amazing fundraising opportunity to work the AAU National meet held here at Drake stadium starting next Saturday, July 26th and runs through the following Saturday, August 2nd.

I NEED YOUR HELP!!!

Each full day you work the people at AAU will provide you with lunch

Each full day you work (2 sessions) I will provide you with a Little Caesar’s gift certificate for a free large pizza.

Here’s the deal:

Each day is broken up into 2 sessions except the final day which is just one

We’d work all of the field events. High jump, long jump, shot put, discuss, javelin, pole vault, triple jump,

 All you do is sit at a table with a laptop in hand and enter the distance of what they tell us the athlete did on each attempt.  REALLY, IT’S THAT EASY

VERY IMPORTANT

Thursday, July 24th at 5:45 pm we are having a meeting at DRAKE STADIUM in the blue seats in front of the press box. Here you will be able to ask questions, learn more about the entering process for the event you work and meet the person you’ll have questions for. You’ll also get to see the event area and where you’ll be working to better familiarize yourself with that environment.

You will need to be there an hour before your event.

If  you work the whole day, you’ll stay with the same event in the afternoon after your lunch.

On the days you don’t work, you are allowed free entry to the meet with your t-shirt or wristband that is supplied for you.

THE MEET STARTS THIS SATURDAY. PLEASE RESPOND TO THIS EMAIL IMMEDIATELY IF YOU PLAN TO WORK OR NOT SO I KNOW HOW MANY T-SHIRTS TO ORDER AND HOW MANY PEOPLE WE NEED EACH DAY.

WE REALLY REALLY REALLY need to get those first few days covered first and we’ll work from there.

Thank you, and remember to get back to me as soon as possible.

Newsletter July 16 2014

We have passed the midpoint of our summer training schedule.  The results are very positive.  There has been a steady turnout of runners every week.  We have picked up several new runners of all grade levels and they are a great fit.  We are still looking for some of our regulars to show up but we know the summer can be pretty busy.   The weekly tempo runs show that we are improving nicely as the summer wears on.  If you have friends invite them to practice.

The Tuesday and Thursday Strength and Conditioning class is going strong.  The two new coaches are quite good at showing you how to gain strength.  Their routines are runner specific.  They are very knowledgeable on the subject.  You do not have to be the Hulk in order to have success in the weight room.

Reminder the season actually starts on August 11th and our first meet is at Urbandale on Sept 4th.  Team in weightroom

Things to Think About:

  1.  We are planning a trip to Ledges State Park on Thursday July 31st .  We will have normal practice and then take off early afternoon and come back around 8 to 9 that night.  Keep that day open if you are interested.  It will also be Joy’s last day, so it is a Good Bye Party as well
  2. Every Tuesday and Thursday our two new Strength and Conditioning Coaches are holding a strength and conditioning class at 9AM.  It lasts about an hour.  If you have the time and are interested please join them.
  3. Please go to the Roosevelt Athletics website and download the forms you need to fill out.  Make sure that you have a doctor’s physical on file.  Please have the Emergency Information Sheet filled out and returned to me before you go the Ledges get together.  Or soon thereafter if you are not going on  the outing
  4. Make sure you have a good pair of shoes.  Remember Fitness Sports on University will give you a discount if you tell them you run for Roosevelt.

School Year Ends on High Note for Rider Cross Country Runners and the Fall Season Begins

Hello Everyone,

Congrats to all of the CC runners as they finished up their seasons.

Meetings have been held at Roosevelt, Merrill and Callanan recruiting runners for the fall.

FOR THE GIRLS TEAM

Welcome to the Roosevelt Girl’s Cross Country Team.  We are excited to start up another season this fall.  We hope that you enjoy your experience as a member of the team.  The team has a rich tradition and has a dedicated group of young athletes that love to run.  Our summer program details are listed below.  For those of you new to the program….the summer runs help prepare you for the challenges of the season.  It is our hope that you can join up with your team mates when you can and run a few miles with friends.  It is way more fun to run in a group than to run alone.  We know summer is a busy time and understand if work, vacation and other things may get in your way.  Feel free to contact us if you would like a plan to help you prepare for the fall if you are unable to attend this summer.  Feel free to contact us with any questions or problems that may come up.

Again, Welcome to the group and let’s get running!!!!!!
