WE ARE NO LONGER ACCEPTING ENTRIES FOR THE PROGRAM. This page is for parents and athletes already signed up.

WEATHER POLICY:

For safety reasons because we are running on grass we will NOT practice if it is raining or there is any lightning within 25 miles of Madison.  If we start practice and it starts raining, please come back to the location as we will stop practicing.  The one exception is if it is a light mist and it starts after practice.   If the ground is snow covered we will also NOT practice.  Any questions email coach Scott at scottbrinen@gmail.com  WE WILL POST TO FACEBOOK and send an email if practice is cancelled.  The call will be made by 3pm of that day.

COVID SPECIFIC INFO:

If an athlete feels ill or anyone in the immediate household isn’t feeling well, or either or both test positive for COVID please stay home!  If a family member or athlete test positive we ask that you do NOT come to practice for 14 days.  Coach Scott can give you workouts to do on your own.  You do NOT need to communicate the reason why you won’t be able to attend the events, just communicate with us that you won’t be at practice for the day, week etc.  It’s extremely important that we help each other out.  Also, please have the conversation with your child that they should do as much social distancing as possible at practice.

Athletes will be put in groups(Squads) of no more than 25. One coach will be assigned to each squad and will wear a mask the entire time while coaching. That coach will stay at the same location each week, and if they have any children they will have the option of staying with their parent for logistical reasons. Squads will be the same each week and you will rotate through the different locations with the same squad. It is not acceptable to switch squads for safety reasons, you must follow the schedule.   Athletes can wear masks if they wish but it is optional. We will do our best to keep as much social distance as possible while instructing and starting of the running, but it is distance running and kids at times will be close to each other running. You will need to sign a waiver that is linked below (BRING TO FIRST DAY OF PRACTICE).  You cannot practice without the waiver

Cost of the program is $90 and can be paid via Venmo(Preferred) or Paypal Please pay before the first day of practice.  Venmo and Paypal can go to badgertrackclub@gmail.com.

Practice Info:

 

Monday and Thursdays Starting September 14th and Ending November 5th

 

We will start promptly at 5pm and end at 6:30pm.

Parents need to stay in their cars when dropping off and picking up, try your best to be on-time for drop-off and pick-up.

Athletes should come with a backpack and water and any additional clothes they should need.  They can then put their backpacks in an area near to where they will run.  This will keep their drinks and clothes isolated from other athletes.  Please discuss this with your child, and explain it is not ok to share water and any other equipment with other athletes.

Please have a conversation with them about social distancing, no high fives, hugs, touching other athletes.  Advise them to try to practice safe social distance of 6 feet between themselves and athletes during practice.  Coaches will do their best to assist in social distancing, but the kids need to be aware as well.

If you need to talk to the coach or myself for any reason please email me at scottbrinen@gmail.com.
