Have you completed the parent survey this season?
Please make sure you have completed the Parent Survey for the 2018 season. This will be used by the coaches and the boosters to share information with parents. 

GPS Watches
GPS watches are a great tool for runners to track their mileage and pacing. The GPS technology has become much more reliable and affordable in the last few years. GPS watches are not rechargeable and will last for many years. We encourage runners to get a GPS watch. Refurbished Garmin products work very well and can be purchased from Heart rate monitoring is not a feature that is needed. We recently purchased several Garmin Forerunner 25 GPS watches and have been quite impressed with them.

Daily Pulse Check Form
New this year athletes will do a morning pulse check to measure their resting heart rate. Use this link to access the form. You must be logged in through an email address in order do so. Athletes should use a watch to count their heart beats for 10 seconds and then multiply that number by 6. It is important that this is done at the same time each day. It is best to do this in bed a few minutes after an alarm.

Meet Line-ups
Most meets consist of several races per gender (Varsity, JV, C Race, Middle School, etc.) and we assign runners to a specific race based upon their previous race performances, practice attendance, current fitness level, and meet parameters.  Line-ups will be established several days before each meet so runners and families can plan accordingly.  You can view the meet line-up spreadsheet here - 2018 AHS Boys CC Meet Line-ups.
