Head Coach Abbey (Walters) Ehlers 

Abbey Ehlers is a native of Glenwood Springs. She started running with the Springers program in 1999.  In 2010, after moving back from Chicago, she began coaching as an assistant for the Glenwood Springs High School Cross Country team and for Springers.

As a program, we aim to provide a positive athletic experience for all children.  We hope your child learns the enjoyment of being an athlete, teamwork, hard work, communication, confidence, respect, and sportsmanship.

A parent meeting will be hosted every Thursday after practice from 11:00-11:30 to discuss any updates/answer any questions you may have.  These meetings are NOT mandatory; they are meant to answer questions and to keep you informed.  Items discussed at the meetings that are relevant to the team will be posted on the website.


Team pictures will be taken at the Springers’ Track Meet on Wednesday, July 6.  Please make sure your child wears his/her uniform.


Please respect the equipment the program loans to you.  If it is lost or damaged, you will be billed for it.  Please be sure to remove all meet stickers before you wash your uniform. Wear comfortable workout clothing during practice and uniforms at the meets.  Uniforms are only to be worn at the meets.


Appropriate language and kind actions are expected from all athletes.  Violations of appropriate behavior could result in parent contact, being asked to leave practice, or to not participate in a meet.
