Sun City is excited to announce that Tracy Sawyer is going to be our Group 1 coach this fall. Our group 1 kids are the kids who have zero or little running experience and are just getting their first taste of cross-country or still getting acclimated to the sport. Her last name may be familiar because her husband Andy was our hurdles coach this spring during track season and did an amazing job.
Our first group in cross-country is for kids just out to have fun, learn a little bit about running, and play a few games at the end of practice. No one ever has to run a race but we would encourage these “harriers” to race as well, especially with the reward of a popsicle and ribbon at the end of a meet.
Group 1, since it is our beginners group only practices during our regular season from September 15th to October 17th. Any child who would like to continue training after the 17th we will move to Group 2 for the 2nd half of the season if he/she would like to continue on running.
Coach Sawyer, like the rest of the coaches, has kids on the team and her entire family runs.
Currently we have coaches for each of our groups but we could use some extra help in both group one and two to help Coach Tracy and Coach Aleah out. Whether or not you have any running experience we would love to have you help. Message me on Facebook if this is something you are interested in.
Remember, there is a discount for signing up for Sun City by September 8th.
