We had a very good week of practice and the kids seem to be enjoying the team.  We will not have practice over the next week due to the 8th grade Washington DC trip.  All three coaches are on the trip so we will resume practice after April Vacation.  

We encourage all team members to stay active during the next 2 weeks.  Whether it is a soccer game, lax game, or a running workout, please make sure your child gets outside for a few workouts.  We encourage WOYO's over the next 2 weeks.  WOYO's are Workouts On Your Own.  As mentioned before these workouts can be a game for another sport, a run around your neighborhood, a trip to the WHS track or a run on the treadmill if the weather is poor.  All athletes should remember to stretch and do their warm-up drills prior to their running workout.

We have noticed that not everyone has paid the user fee for the Spring Track Team.  Please be sure to make your payment as soon as possible.  Our athletic director has informed us that athletes cannot participate in our first meet if the payment is not received.  The first meet is scheduled for April 26th against Sudbury so please make the payment by clicking on the link below.  Thanks for your attention to this and thanks to everyone who has already paid the user fee.


Enjoy the rest of the weekend!

First Day of Practice

Despite the snow, we were still able to get our first practice of the season under our belt.  We started with a team meeting, stretching, warm-up drills, a short running workout, cool down and then broke into groups to discuss the different spring track events.  Everyone was enthusiastic about the start of the season and it looks like we have some excellent athletes!

Here is the schedule for the rest of the week:

Tuesday - Practice at Wayland Middle School from 2:30-3:45

Thursday - Practice at Wayland Middle School from 2:30-3:45

Friday - No practice due to 8th grade DC trip preparations

There were a few team members who did not have an updated physical today.  Please be sure to bring a copy of your updated physical to Mr. Farley tomorrow in order to participate.  Athletes cannot participate in practice until an updated physical has been turned in.

Also, several families have not yet paid the user fee for the track team.  Please follow the link below to complete payment.  Thanks for your prompt attention to this.  Please click here to be brought to the payment portal.  Please be sure to click on middle school athletics when completing the payment.

Finally, team members brought home a uniform order form today.  Wayland Boosters provides the uniforms for our team.  The cost of the uniform is $11.00.  All checks should be made out to Wayland Boosters.  There will be a representative from the boosters present at our practice on Thursday to distribute the uniforms to those athletes who do not have one.  If your child has a uniform from XC or track from last year, you do not need to order another one.

We are looking forward to a great season!  Hope to see you at some of our meets!
