Yes! Practice RAIN or SHINE :-)

Jackrabbits-

Remember we practice rain or shine… just make sure to bring a towel for after practice to put down in your car when you go home.  🙂

Many track and sporting events are not cancelled due to rain, so it is important to know that yes, we do get wet, but we still can run and have fun! (In fact, many of our rainy day practices have been favorites of the kids!) Yay!
