Parents connect

We had a fine walk of the 5k course with ten parents in attendance. We snapped a photo of the group, and you will find it and dozens of athlete photos from past seasons at this page on Facebook.

TUESDAY 9/2 practice canceled

The PSAL has canceled all practices citywide today, Tuesday Sept 2, in all sports due to poor air quality as measured by the government's Air Quality Index (AQI).

Even when practices are held in hot, humid, or high AQI conditions, activities are modified so that athletes can safely exercise.  Modifications may include shortened practice, lighter demands, longer rest periods, shaded locations, and access to extra water.

Regardless of the workout, each athlete is free to stop and rest, or reduce their effort level, at any time without penalty.  Athletes who are feeling dizzy, suddenly weak, or short of breath are asked to stop immediately and speak to the coach without delay. Your safety is of paramount concern.

Summer practices end

We've had an excellent summer: Senior captain Michael Alvin organized thrice weekly summer runs with 8 to 12 people in attendance most days, and on August 18, our first official team practice with Coach Henning, there were 34 in attendance!  Here's a photo from that first day.

Our last summer practice was held on Governors Island, and included a run around the island and a picnic under a large tree near the colonial fort located there. 

Everyone is looking forward to the start of regular practices with the entire team starting Tuesday, September 2, 4:00pm at HSMSE.
