9/14 PRE-SEASON CONDITIONING SESSIONS: Starting 9/28, we will be conducting preseason conditioning sessions to help athletes develop their strength and overall fitness. Sessions for sprinters, jumpers & throwers will be on Mondays and Wednesdays from 4:00-6:00 pm; sessions for cross country & distance track runners will be on Tuesdays & Thursdays from 3:45-5:45. Students must signup each week by 10 pm the night before; coaches will then group participants prior to checkin. Please arrive at Fairfax HS by door #18 for pre-screening & checkin during the first 10 minutes of each session. After that we will be returning the pre-screening equipment and going down to the track, so if you're late you may miss out on the workout. The workouts are intended to be finished in 2 hours. Participation is optional, not required to join the team. All rising 9-12 graders that are intersted in running X-Country in 2020 are eligible to participate. Graduates are not allowed. We will do a warmup run on the trails behind the baseball field, drills and buildups on the band field, an interval workout on the track, a tempo workout on the trails, and stretching / core workout on the turf field. Workouts will be suited to athlete's current fitness level. We recognize that some people may not have exercised much recently and this is their first time getting out. Others may have been training regularly and ready for more demanding workouts.
All participants must abide by the following rules:
1. Sign up in advance by 10pm the night prior to each session. If there are no available spots, sign up on the waiting list and we'll work to get you in on a future date.
2. Arrive outside the fieldhouse by door #18 (stay in your car). One of the FHS coaches or athletic trainers will ask you the scan a barcode with your phone and answer standard COVID-19 screening questions via your phone. They will also take your temperature using a digital thermometer on your forehead.
3. Submit an Emergency Care form to one of the cross country coaches.
4. Show that you have a water bottle containing 32 oz or more.
(Failing to meet the screening questions, having a temperature of 100.4 or higher, not having a signed emergency care form or not having a 32 oz water bottle means you have to go home; no exceptions). You may carpool with another student. However if one person in your car fails the temperature test or screening questions, then all students in the car must go home10
Athletes can then exit the car and start the warmup. During the workout, participants must maintain social distancing (stay at least 10 feet apart). Athletes must wear shorts and a shirt the entire practice and may not take off their shirt. We will monitor the heat and adjust practice in high heat or cancel practice. We are not allowed in the school building and not allowed to use shared equipment (no balls, frisbees, shared water coolers, etc.)
5. Athletes will depart from the lower gate to the track (closest to Lee Hwy) after the session. Athletes are not allowed to hang out on campus before or after practice.
