Centerville Boys XC
summer Conditioning update (6/10/20)
We will begin this FRIDAY (6/12) FOR SENIORS ONLY. This practice will allow us to set the tone for how conditioning will go this summer with all of our summer leaders. Beginning next week we will start our summer conditioning schedule for June for the rest of the team. We will meet Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. We will start each day at 7:30 and end at 9:00. We are starting a bit earlier because we are attempting to stagger start times with other sports in order to avoid crowds at the high school. Our meeting point will the the Visitor's Entrance to the stadium, as we have met the last few years. Please subscribe to the team calendar to keep up to date as we finalize the July schedule.
As previously mentioned we will maintain the minimum social distance of 6 feet between each person during conditioning. Group sizes will be limited to 5 runners in a group. We will have a sanitizing station for athletes to use when they arrive and whenever needed. For the first two weeks of conditioning we will stay on the Centerville High School property, including the farm loop. No sharing of water bottles or using public water fountains will be permitted other than to fill up your personal bottle. Each athlete who attends conditioning will have to sign-in electronically using a Google Form. To make the process as speedy as possible please bring your own device to sign-in if possible. If you do not have your own device, or would not like to bring it, you may use one of the coaches' devices. You will scan a QR code upon arrival and answer a few questions regarding your health. These procedures have been put into place to protect the community and ourselves so we will do our part in protecting everyone's health.
As a reminder, non of these practices are mandatory. You are not required to participate until August 1st. However, it is expected that you are running this summer to prepare for the season so please follow one of the training plans found here.

summer Conditioning update (6/5/20)
Summer conditioning will NOT begin next week but we will officially start the following week (6/15). In following the rules and regulations provided by Centerville City Schools and the Athletic Department, summer conditioning will look much different than in previous years. We will maintain the minimum social distance of 6 feet between each person. Group sizes will be limited and sanitizing stations will be present at each practice. No sharing of water bottles or using public water fountains will be permitted other than to fill up your personal bottle. Each athlete who attends conditioning will have to sign-in electronically when they arrive using a Google Form. To make the process as speedy as possible please bring your own device to sign-in. If you do not have your own, or would not like to bring it, you may use one of the coaches' devices. You will scan a QR code upon arrival and answer a few questions regarding your health. The form will be simple and ask questions about your body temperature and how you have felt in the past 24 hours. You will have to do this each time you attend any official athletic event over the summer. These procedures have been put into place to protect the community and ourselves so we will do our part in protecting everyone's health.
More information and a complete summer conditioning schedule will be provided after the coaches meet this weekend but I wanted to share what I know right now. As always, if you have any questions please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
IF YOU HAVE NOT STARTED FOLLOWING A TRAINING PLAN YET PLEASE START NOW. CLICK HERE TO FIND ONE.
2020 Captain Application
Anyone who is interested in becoming a captain this season is welcome to complete the application found below. Know that your responses will be shared with your teammates, who will then vote on this year's captains. The final decision will be made by the coaches but the team's input will be very important. Most likely our captains this year will be a few seniors with the possibility of 1 or 2 underclassman being selected as well.
This application is due at 11:59 pm on Friday June 5th.
A lot is up in the air right now so I am sure you will still have plenty of questions going forward but here is what we know.
Right now we do not have an official conditioning schedule for the summer. Sports are beginning to meet again soon but with a group as large as ours it will be difficult to follow guidelines correctly. Do not worry though, summer condition as a full team will happen! Once we have more concrete information I will post a schedule online. Just know that flexibility will be key as we approach this upcoming season.
If you haven't starting running again you should start today. Nothing too intense yet and nothing too long. You should be running 4-6 times a week right now with nothing more than 5-6 miles. This is a long season and we want to build into it. Official training plans will be posted online on May 30th and they will officially start on June 1st. We will not be meeting as a whole team but it is expected that you start your training now to have the best season this fall.
Returning Letter Winners
Once again we will be making a new uniform specific to this season. Please work together to create a design on this site: https://niketeam.nike.com/ I would like to have the design finalized by the first week in June so we can order the uniforms right away.
Captain Applications will also be posted on May 30th and they will be due on June 6th. The team will once again vote on the captains with coaches having a final say.
I hope you and your family are safe and healthy! If you have any questions at all please feel free to email me at email@example.com
