TEAM PHILOSOPHY & GOALS:

  • Work Hard starting now!

  • Total Commitment, No excuses.

  • Selfless Attitude, team first

  • Being a leader, and being a role model!

  • Working to serve the team, rather than have the team serve you.

  • Study Right, Eat right, sleep right, work hard, play hard!

  • Be smart, give your body the appropriate rest, and then work hard again!

 

OUTDOOR PRACTICE COMMITMENT:

  • As we begin the official season, we ask that athletes be at each & every practice. Do not schedule any appointments during practice or meets unless absolutely unavoidable (i.e. illness).  For such absences you or your parent must personally notify me as to your absence.  DO NOT tell a teammate to tell us.  

  • Nothing should be scheduled during practice time if at all possible.  If a situation does arise, PLEASE notify us by email or Telephone to explain the situation.  3 UNEXCUSED ABSENCES will result in dismissal from the Team.  Things such as job interviews, driving school, hair appointments, etc. will be considered unexcused absences.    

  • Meet Outside on the Track Everyday unless instructed to do otherwise.  Athletes will be allowed to use the athletic locker rooms at the High School before and after practice (athletes must provide their own locks).  

  • Dress appropriately for all weather conditions, we will be outside everyday!!!  WEAR PANTS or TIGHTS EVERYDAY!!!

  • Following practice on the track we will continue our strength training in the Weight Room.  

 

NUTRITION:

  • Be sure that you stay well hydrated throughout the winter and the season. It will make a huge difference in your training.  Water is our friend!  

  • You don’t have to diet or deny yourself favorite treats, but try to maintain a reasonably healthy and well-balanced meal plan to get yourself on the right path to a great season.

 

SHOES!!!

THE RIGHT SHOES ARE ABSOLUTELY CRUCIAL!  To avoid injury and discomfort, make sure that you have a good pair of running shoes that are right for your feet and the way you run.  Spending the time and money to get the right shoes will make a world of difference in your training.  Any old pair will NOT do!  I suggest Buckeye Running Company. They are knowledgeable about running and runners’ needs also located 5mins from the HS on Tylersville.  Plus, you can get a 15% - 20% discount by mentioning Mason Track & Field.  

 

MANDATORY TRACK PARENT MEETING:

The Booster Club (The Mason Running Boosters) and the Coaching Staff would like to have all parents attend a mandatory meeting in the High School Small Commons, Tuesday, February 27 @ 7:00pm.  Prior to the Track portion of the meeting, Mr. Stemple (Mason HS Athletic Director) would like to meet with the parents as well for 20 minutes.  You must send at least 1 parent to this Spring Meeting.
