  • Hi Parents,
    I am sending an order form home with your child to preorder t-shirts for the State Meet on 10/27. The form will have all the details on it. I'm telling you this because I know that sometimes, thing have a way of getting lost between school and home...

    The shirts will be ordered next Friday (10/15) I will get an invoice from the league that will allow me to pick up the shirts on the day of the State Meet. This is the league's big fundraiser for the year. It allows us to put on a professional-level meet for our athletes.

    So, if you wish, the shirts are available for $10 on pre-order, $12 the day of the meet. Please make out checks to RIPCOA and return the check and order form to me by 10/15/16 and I will be able to put in the order for your child.

  • Today I'm starting a Facebook page for EWG XC. It's focused on getting information out to parents in an easy, timely way. I believe that there is a Facebook app available for free for both iOS and Android phones. There isn't much on the page yet, but if you click on the "LEARN MORE" button, it will take you to the Google Calendar which gives you information about every practice, meet, day, date, time. Also, if you click on an event in the Google Calendar, often you can click on the meet location and get directions to the away meet through Google Maps.
  • Over the years, parents have often asked me about setting up a carpool for pick ups. I've struggled with how to do this and still maintain safety of our kids. I'm going to try to use to get a carpool exchange going with parents. If you send me your email (see my address above) I can send you and "invite" to join carpool-kids and then we can see if this site will work for us. On the site, I've set up a calendar of all practices and meets. From there, I think the way this works is that parents can arrange for rides. I could be wrong, but I can't test the site without some parent volunteers to try it. There is a phone app for iOS that is free. Android users can access the site from a web browser (Chrome). Once we get the site going, I will need feedback from parents as to how (or if) this is working out.
  • If you live in the Mishnock area or Black Plain Road, we have an athlete who really needs a ride home after practices. If you can help out, please contact me at the email address above.
  • NO practice today, Tuesday, September 13th. Coach has an all-day in-service workshop.
  • Great news! The librarians will again be able to host our athletes after school in the jr/sr library. Please impress upon your child the need to focus on homework (I will strongly reinforce) and to be on one's best behavior. 
  • Each x-c team will need volunteers to help out at the finish line at the RI Middle School State meet on Saturday, 10/22/16. If you would like to volunteer to help out at the finish line that day, please see me after practice at some point during the season. I believe you'll need to have a background check before you can volunteer.

Please remember that before ANY athlete can participate in practice, s/he needs to turn in the following forms, completed, signed, and (where applicable) notarized:

1) RIPCOA Risk form (good for grades 7 & 8). If your child turned in a risk form last year in grade 7, you do not need to fill out this form again. This form must be notarized. There are people in the administration building who can notarize for you.

2) Physical form: Physical must be current, must clear the student for participation in athletics.

3) Concussion awareness: Form must be signed and turned in.

4) EWG Sports Handbook: Page must be signed and turn in.

5) School insurance: You MUST enroll in school insurance, even if you already have coverage.

Again, no student will be allowed to come to practice until all forms are turned in.
