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!

Zooming Wednesdays 5:45pm – Tons of Track & Field Info, Olympic Video & Analysis, etc!!!

Our Zoom Classes have been great teaching your terrific kids Track & Field!

We do all our stretches, exercises, sprint drills and what is also exciting is our reviewing and understanding of track & field events up close in slow motion : shot put, pole vault, hurdles, javelin, etc !!! 

We note country flags and specific stats of Olympic caliber athletes which they will no doubt recognize in the next Olympic Games & World Championships!!

We have seen the Brazilian Relay team win in a championship and see them celebrate with their fellow country team members; we have seen Sweden’s 21 yr old Mondo Duplantis’ evolution of his Pole Vault world records beginning at 7 years old; we have seen USA’s Delilah Mohammad set the 400m hurdle record 2x in a row with a USA young 21 yr old Sydney McLaughlin close behind… these are just a few examples of what they get to see and understand. 

This is definitely a fun class! 

Hope to see you next Weds!!  Please email Coach Joy for the special Zoom Link!

AQI Awareness!

You bet! This has been such a different time for all. Heatwaves, COVID and now smoke… 😦 Coach Joy is very concerned with everything- especially YOUR health. If AQI is too dangerous, she will send out a class email to let you know that the class will cancel. Always know that if we cancel a class it will be made up at end of session.

If you have any questions about class, text or call Coach Joy: 510-816-8009

BE Positive & Safe! Good Job, You’re Awesome!

Coach Joy Update with our Jackrabbits🐰

Hi Team & Future teammates!

We spoke to Coach Joy to ask her what she thought about all that has been going on and not able to really coach our classes live & not race herself. Here is what she said:

“Hi! Thanks for asking! Well, I know this is a time we are not used to or prepared for, but we are ALL being smart and have to abide by the CDC rules. I can’t wait to get back to coaching in our normal way, but in the meantime we will be safe & practice with small groups & social distancing.”

“This summer sure has been different! For everyone! Gosh, but I am so glad that we were able to have some Zoom classes. It was great to see our super Jackrabbits, and it is always great to teach our little student athletes about our sport of Track & Field!”

“As for me racing track meets, well, there were a lot of competitions cancelled-which we all knew would happen-but the World Masters Group created a Virtual Challenge as well as the USATF Masters had a Virtual Meet, too! So thought it would be fun to support both those events. We would post proof of our results on their result page. It was good to be able to do some type of ‘racing’ even though it wasn’t in a real meet. I still made ‘Virtual’ ribbons for a few other teammates”

See how Coach Joy did here:
