The Adaptive Sports Junior Nationals were held in Middleton in July. The Junior Nationals is the oldest continuously held competitive sports event for junior athletes (ages 7 to 22) with physical disabilities in North America. Jayquan Jaeger who competed for Badger Track Club, competed in long jump and shot put. He long jumped 2.18 meters and threw the shot 5.12m. He won his division in both events. Great Job Jayquan!

IT’S CROSS COUNTRY SEASON

I hope everyone had a great summer!!  Several of you have contacted me about opportunities for Cross Country this fall.  Since this will be our first official Cross Country season I wanted to get a note out with some updates.  

Middle School
-I recommend you sign up for whatever program your middle school has.  Their program will give you opportunities to train a few days a week as well as race once a week when the season starts.  If you cannot make the training schedule during the week but can make the races just tell the coach that.  If they balk at that have them email coach Scott at scottbrinen@gmail.com and I will talk to them.  I’ll put a workout program together for you to get you in shape for the races!
-We will have some opportunities for racing outside of your school schedule which I will communicate via this news letter.
-Beginners- 2 to 3 times a week 15 minutes running is a great start to the season
-Intermediate Every other day 20 minutes
-Advanced 5 days a week 20 minutes a day, strides Weekend Group Runs with the Club (On weekends To Be announced)

High School
-Again, sign up for whatever program your high school offers.
-We will have opportunities after the season to compete in some races as well.

Adults
-Keep doing whatever training and racing your doing.  If you are road racing it will translate directly to cross country.  I will have some group runs available to do some extra work, Elver Hills, Arboretum, Military Ridge Tempo running…etc (NOTE:Anyone can come to the group runs including kids.  I may be the only person\coach there and I will be participating in the runs so make sure a parent is with them or they are ok doing the run without supervision)

If you do NOT have a Badger Track Club t-shirt or singlet and want one, please contact me with your size and I will order one.  T-shirts are $10 and Singlets are $15.

 

Racing Opportunities
I will add to this list weekly as I find them but here is what I know as of today.
1. Verona High School Cross Country Open free Cross Country Race Sept 2nd 10am Is when the High School races start and after they are complete there  is an open cross country race for all ages. ADULTS and KIDS can race for FREE   This would be a great opener for your Middle school child and a cool one for you adults who are interested.  YOU WILL NEED TO SIGN A WAIVER AT THE COURSE BEFORE YOU RUN.
2.  Indian Lake Trail Run http://friendsofindianlake.org/  October 7th This would also be a great fun run on some very cool terrain
3. USATF Wisconsin Assoc Cross Country Championships in Kenosha WI November 5th.  This is a qualifier for the USATF National Cross Country meet.  I’ll get more info out as we get closer to this date.  Please put this date in your calender.  The Kenosha Parkside course is very cool.  The distances depending on age will be 2k, 3k, 4k, 5k
Badger Track Club Fall Cross Country Program

Date\Time: TBD  
Location: Elver Park 

This will start as soon as the Middle School season ends.  I don’t have a schedule for the Madison schools yet.  When I get that I’ll start working on the dates and get a sign-up and cost on the website.

Thank you!

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
