Badger Track Club Summer Series

March 1, 2016

 

2016 Westside Track Club Member,

 

You recently received a letter from Glenn announcing his retirement after 33 years as a coach and mentor. Without a plan to continue a track program on the west side, Glenn’s retirement would have meant the end of the Westside Track Club.

 

Like many of you, we were grateful to Glenn for keeping the Westside club going, but disappointed to receive the news. We feel strongly that there needs to be a track club on the west side. The opportunities offered through the club are hard to find anywhere else nearby. We feel that the opportunity to train and compete in track events should continue. Rather than watch these opportunities disappear, we organized and devised a plan to continue a summer track program here on the west side.

 

The plan going forward will be to continue to offer a summer track season, through an existing running club. In fall of 2016, Scott Brinen, a parent and former track athlete started the Badger Track Club. The Badger Track Club currently offers cross country training for all ages, year round. Scott is excited about incorporating the Westside Track Club program into Badger Track Club’s summer season. Scott loves track and is eager to partner with us to offer track and field opportunities to children in the Madison area. He is very excited to take on the role of head coach and to continue what Glenn started with the Westside Track Club.

We are excited  there will be a summer track program. Please join us as we transition from the Westside Track Club to the Badger Track Club. The Summer Season through the Badger Track Club will run May 15-July 12. Practice days, times and location will be coming soon. The Memorial Track is being resurfaced this summer and so we will need a new location to hold practices. We will let you know as soon as we have more information. If you are interested in joining the Badger Track Club please email Jennifer Howlett, jrhfamilyof5@gmail.com, with your name, your child’s name, age & school and we will add you to the email list. We will email with club updates and a link to register when it becomes available. Again, we are very excited to be able to offer a summer track program and hope that you will join us for Badger Track Club’s Summer Season. If you would like to learn more about Badger Track Club and Coach Scott Brinen please visit the club’s website, http://badgertrackclub.com/. We look forward to seeing you all this summer.

 

Sincerely,

The Westside Track Club Transition Team
