2021 FEAST TRACK AND FIELD IS ON THE STARTING LINE
January means the start of track season! After last year’s season was cut short, coaches, athletes, and fans are excited to get started again. Practices start in mid-January, and our first HS meet is February 11th.
The first official FEAST Track practice will be on Wednesday, January 20th, at Wheatley Heights Sports Complex from 4:45pm to 6:45pm. This season practices will be held at Wheatley Heights Sports Center since Randolph HS is not allowing outside groups this year. Practices are typically held at 4:45pm on Mondays and Wednesdays, although there are some exceptions during the first four weeks of practice.
TRACK KICKOFF MEETINGS:
Each athlete and at least one parent must attend one of the following:
January 1st Noon at Lopez MS
There will be a workout at 10am that precedes the kickoff meeting.
January 4th, 6:30pm at FEAST
There will be a workout at 4:45pm that precedes the meeting.
January 7th, 6:30pm at FEAST
We will review team policies, schedules, and have warm-ups and uniform samples available to check sizing at all the kickoff meetings.
Online registration opens January 1st and is $75/athlete with a $250 family max. Registration will close January 20th. Our online store, where warm-ups, meet shorts, and other items are available for purchase, will also open on January 1st and close January 20th.
Meet Worker Volunteers Needed: FEAST will be hosting our HS meet on February 20th, and our MS meet on April 17th. If you are interested in working at either meet, please notify Coach Dunn at firstname.lastname@example.org. We need field event workers, concession-stand workers, and workers in the press box.
If you have any questions regarding FEAST Track and Field, please contact Coach Dunn.
We would love to have more athletes come out and join our team.
TRACK & FIELD 2021 IS AROUND THE CORNER.
Off-season workouts are underway, meet schedules are being developed, and coaches are preparing for the upcoming season. Please pray for the FEAST track and field teams and their upcoming season.
If you were not on the team last year and want to join this year or just want to find out more about the teams, please contact the FEAST Track Commissioner and HS Head Coach, David Dunn, at email@example.com
Everyone who wants to participate in track this season or is interested needs to attend one of our three kickoff meetings along with one parent.
KICKOFF MEETINGS (must attend one)
January 1st Noon at Lopez Middle School, park behind the school. Optional 10 am workout will precede the meeting.
January 4th 6:30pm at FEAST
January 7th 6:30pm at FEAST
We will have uniforms and warmups available to try on at the kickoff meetings.
OPTIONAL OFF-SEASON WORKOUTS
Several FEAST runners and coaches are meeting twice a week for pre-season workouts. If you are interested in joining these workouts, please contact David Dunn (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Tida Lanoce (email@example.com). Athletes can attend one, some or all of these workouts. Additionally, if you have specific middle school track team questions, you can contact the FEAST MS Track Coach, Doug Halsell (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Finally, if anyone is interested in coaching or helping out at practices, please let us know.
Track and Field will host kickoff meetings on January 4th and 7th. The meetings will start at 6:30pm at FEAST, 7735 Mockingbird Lane.
Anyone interested in participating in track for the first time should contact Coach Dunn at email@example.com and he can answer any questions you may have. He will also send you a reminder about the kickoff meetings (everybody needs to attend one). Come to the meeting to learn more about the track season and practices, meet the coaches and try on uniforms and warm-ups for sizing.
Track registration fee is only $75 and the only other costs are having to buy meet shorts, good running shoes, and warm-ups (provide your own or buy from the team). $75 gives you two workouts per week with experienced track and field coaches plus your entry into seven meets. This very low price is due in part to our ability to generate income at the two meets we will host.
Last year’s season was cut short, so many of our athletes are anxious to return to the track and compete at meets again. We are currently working on securing meets and will host our own MS and HS meet as well. When we host our own meets, each family will need to help out in some way at these meets.
In the meantime, begin your workouts now on your own and get ready for the season. There will be several informal workouts held in November and December for anyone interested. Contact Coach Dunn for more details on these workouts, as well as for any off-season workout guidance or questions you have.
Congratulations to our Graduating FEAST Track and Field Seniors.
While the FEAST Spring Track Season was cut short, we still want to honor our graduating 2020 seniors. On July 16th, the FEAST Track Coaches, the senior athletes, and their families all gathered together to recognize each senior and their accomplishments both on and off the track. The picture shown here was taken at the July 16th Senior Recognition Event.
These seniors will definitely be missed as they move forward to new challenges and opportunities and they carry with them a lot of cherished memories. As head coach, it is my hope that they carry with them three learnings from their HS track and field days.
Your spiritual life requires regular, consistent work very similar to your athletic training life. Muscles weaken without consistent work and your relation to Christ will likewise weaken and go adrift without consistent work. So, #1 is a consistent, active pursuit of your relationship with Christ. #2 is a consistent effort towards physical fitness. While you may not maintain the fitness level of your HS senior year, my hope is that physical fitness becomes a routine part of your life. And #3, that track will have created a desire in you to help others. The teamwork, the friendships, the perseverance through trials, the encouragement you gave and received have hopefully generated a longing to help and love others in whatever plans God has for you.
Congratulations to Isabel Bettencourt, Michael Braymer, Keagan Bogart, Samuel Dech, Samuel Flores, Gabriel Lyons, C.J. Telfer and Silas Paterka.
