Crystal Springs course use

With CCS taking place at the Crystal Springs course, here are a few course rules that you should be aware of if you are taking your athletes to the course.

First, check the race schedule and make sure you are not practicing on the course on the same day. The rule is you must be done 90 minutes before the start of any competition or 60 minutes after any competition on the course. You cannot practice at the same time as an official competition. Also, do not drive your car on to the course if the gates are open.

If you take your athletes to the course for a practice, please make sure you bring your first aid kit and medical cards. If you take more than 10 athletes to the course for a practice, you will need a pay a $20 fee for each practice. All the info about where to send the payment is in the course handbook (link below).

With the intermittent rain in the next week or so, it's possible that the course will be closed. If you get to the last gate to the course and there is a big sign which says "Cross Country Course Closed", please turn around and go back home. Jumping over the fence could result in you and your athletes getting arrested (not kidding). The reason for the closure is to keep the course in good shape for all the league final meets and CCS. 

You can check back here for updates on whether the course is open or closed. I can save you a trip if I find out the course has been closed already.

HOKA ONE ONE Postal Nationals - NorCal Flagship

For one day only, we're stepping away from the hills and dirt and (hopefully!) rain, and toeing the track to see how your team measures up with others all across the country. For one day only, it's all about 8(and change!) fast laps around the track!

Regardless if you're a JV runner who's season just ended or putting final prep into your legs before the CIF State Championships, the HOKA ONE ONE Postal Nationals is for you. Like other big XC Invites, you'll be competing against a couple hundreds of your closest friends. Like other big T&F Invites, you'll be seeded by times, so that you get to race against those in similar fitness to you. And like every XC race, it's a team thing. That's right, the times of your top 5 athletes will be totaled, so you can compare your team against teams all over the country.
As far as the meet itself, we're looking to end around 8:30pm, so the exact start time is TBD, depending on entries. Tentatively we're looking to start around 4pm, but there will be a better estimate as we get closer to race day. Heats will run slower to faster, so the meet is a constant buildup to the fastest 8(and change!) lappers around. There will also be a community/coaches race, with on-site registration, so that your athletes can watch you coaches and their long-graduated teammates try to relieve their glory days on the oval.
All entries are to be done on Athletic.net, so that we can easily seed heats ahead of time. A full schedule with entries will be posted by Wednesday before the meet. All athletes will be accepted. Cost per team (unlimited entries) is $100, with individual entries being $15 for those smaller schools wishing to bring athletes. All payments will be done on site, with checks being made payable to Maria Carrillo Puma Athletics Boosters.
The entry cost is $100 per team or $15 per individual.

Throwers Clinic at Montgomery High School

From Santa Rosa HS throws coach, Paul Troppy.

I am holding a clinic in two weeks on October 29th. The clinic is for high school/college discus and shot put throwers. We will have John Davis and Summer Pierson as our leaders/coaches. This will be our first clinic. Both of these throwers have been Olympic Trial athletes. Summer threw 61.23 meters (just over 200 feet) last year and John Davis threw 67'4.25" in the shot put in 2001.

The cost of the clinic is $20.

If you have any questions in regards to this clinic, you can reach Mr. Troppy at drshot@att.net.

Catching up with San Francisco University coach, Jim Tracy...

This interview was originally posted on November 22, 2009. Jim sadly passed away on April 6, 2014 after battling with ALS. He was a great coach who is missed by many including myself. I know he would be very pleased to see the success of the University teams this season.
=====================================
Today we catch up with S.F. University coach, Jim Tracy, one of the most successful coaches in NCS and state meet cross country history. He's seen here on the far left side of the picture with his '09 NCS championship boys' team from yesterday's NCS Meet of Champions. His girls' team also collected an NCS title (by the narrowest of margins over College Prep) to go along with their amazing total of championships won in previous years. That total includes 6 state championships for his girls, the most for a girls team in state meet history.

1. How did you get your start with running?
I showed up at Riordan H.S. in San Francisco fall of '64. High School was a super new experience and after one week my best friend said let's do cross country, they have to race two miles. I thought he was crazy but we tried out, made the team and thus was the beginning of four years of c.c. and track and field. It was a fantastic era of bay area running talent full of memorable rivalries. I had excellent teammates and Riordan prospered.

2. Tell us a little about your own running from high school to now.
After h.s., I ran at city college of San Francisco and a few small meets at the University of California from which I graduated in '73.

I took a year off from running then began to establish a pattern of training that would accommodate being a working adult. This fluctuated quite a bit as jobs changed, hair fell out, and the running scene began an astonishing surge into mainstream society. By the 1980's, I had finally trained enough to be a better runner and competitor.

3. How did you get into coaching?
At this time I would volunteer some advice to other adults in the excelsior running club and continued learning from their efforts,
I ran through the 80's and was basically an adults' coach.

Finally in the 90's, a good friend of mine, Mike McManus, asked me to join him at university h.s. in San Francisco as his new job and family commitments were such that if u.h.s were to grow and maintain his standards he needed help. Mike and I coached together for three years and thus the groundwork for more success was strengthened. Upon his departure, I remained at u.h.s. and have worked with several assistants since. My present staff is very talented.

4. Who were your coaching mentors then and now?
My very first coach in H.S., Rich Kenneally was a super guy and showed me a lot about how good coaching could enhance kids lives.

At city college I met Lou Vasquez, a fine technical coach who gave me greater knowledge and a desire to learn even more.

Later, I attended a lecture by Arthur Lydiard , a very remarkable man and teacher.

Finally, I have subscribed to Track and Field News for many years and that combined with great conversations with a friend, Robert Darling, I have continued to gain knowledge and perspective on people and athletics.

5. Where else have you coached besides SF University? How long have you been at UHS?
This is my 16th season at San Francisco University high school. Thanks to encouragement from the athletic dept., parents, and supporters of running in general the program there has been a pleasure to direct. The kids have been wonderful and I cherish all my memories of the diverse and talented athletes who have graced my teams with their presence.

6. Might be a little difficult to add them all up but how many NCS championships do your boys have? girls? state meet plaques for girls? boys?
As for winning, yes we like to do it and will continue to do so at every opportunity. Our opponents are talented, the racing worthwhile and our goals of excellence always before us.

Now in my 16th season, the UHS girls have won 12 league championships, 11 section titles, and have 6 state wins plus three seconds. They have also won at least once, every cross country invitational we have entered.

The UHS boys have won 16 league titles, 11 sections, and have been second twice at the state championship and third 5 times. In 13 years at state they have never been worse than sixth.

7. What do you feel have been the keys to success at University during cross country season? How does track factor into the xc success?
The teams succeed because young people have talent, parents encourage them, schools structure them, and I would yell at them if they did not! Seriously, I apply all the knowledge I have gained and demand that they take the chance for success and never fear failure. enjoy vicariously their victories as I remember the opportunities in racing that enhanced my life.

8. What are you expectations of your runners during the summer in preparation for the season?
Summer program: go to a good camp, run with your friends and stay healthy. Remember, the trip to the state meet in Fresno really begins before the school year begins and the joy of the trip never ends.

9. What do you feel are the key workouts for your team during the season? Late season?
Key workouts: I conduct a low mileage, interval speed based program with plenty of races that is supported by adequate stretching, rest, good attitudes, and supportive coaches. Run a variety of intervals on cc terrain controlling the volume and rest cycle and let each athlete reach a level that reflects their talent and interest level.

10. What do you feel are the important points in running well at the state meet on the Woodward Park course?
We go to the state meet every year so we always know the course pretty well. It is an excellent course. Recipe for success-for heavens sake its late November, you've trained all season. Run smart the 1st mile. Measure yourself and opponents the 2nd, and don't give anything back on the third. By all means, when your foot hits the last grass stretch to the finish line, you had better already be sprinting!!!

11. What would be your best advice to a young coach, starting out and with ambition to run a great cross country program?
If you are a new coach, expect to learn from the kids as well as teach them. Keep records, know what you've done so that training is logical and explainable. Give the kids a program they can understand and enjoy, and never ask a veteran opposing coach advice before a big race as we will always lie to you. You'll always enjoy the big win and there is always something to learn from a tough loss.

12. Anything else you would like to add.
Thank you Albert for your interest. It is great to be a cross country coach in Calif. and to compete in the incredible North Coast Section. So many fine coaches and storied programs.

Thank you very much for your time Jim! AJC
