ALL Cross Country Athletes

We are ready to kickstart our Summer Thoroughbred Team, Thoroughbred Track Club.  The goal of this Summer Training is to prepare all high school track and field athletes for their best possible upcoming Fall Cross Country Seasons.  We will focus on base training, general strength, and technique for all levels of high school distance runners. 

While the team meets in person 3 days a week, Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, the team will follow a 7 day-a-week comprehensive program.  This allows you to both get ready for Cross Country Season in the most effective way, while also allowing time for finals, summer vacations, and recovery!  As part of the program, everyone will receive a printed out schedule of every single day's work between June 17th and the beginning of the Fall Cross Country Season. We will meet at Thoroughbred Treadmill Studio at 8:00am Mondays & Wednesdays and Phoenix Lake on Thursday mornings at 8:00am.

Monday, June 17th, is officially the first week of our 10-week Summer Program with the first practice that morning at 8:00am.  However, with most athletes ending their respective track seasons at different times, we want to make sure you are fully recovered and ready to begin training again. So, while Monday is the first official day of practice, please come out to practice when you are rested and ready to go, which could very well be Wednesday or Thursday.  We have a long summer of training ahead of us, followed by an exciting and FULL cross country season, let's be patient!

Please bring with you the following items
-Signed Thoroughbred Track Team Waiver
-A check for $500 made out to Thoroughbred Track Club

Thank you so much and see you soon!

NCS girls track: Act of sportsmanship highlights wet championships

I am sure many of you heard about what happened in the girls' 800m at the NCS MOC meet. If you have not, you can check out Phil Jensen's article detailing what happened at the link below. I understand that many athletes compete very hard to defeat their opponents but the truth is that there is a lot of respect in the sport and this is an example of that which everybody could see.

You can check out the video of the race at this LINK.

I contacted rules expert Hal Harkness and this was his response regarding assistance during a TF event.
Under the current NFHS Rule Book that is good until January, 2020, 4-7-5-g.."It is an unfair act when a competitor receives assistance. Assistance includes:

g. Competitor receiving assistance from another competitor to complete the race. Both competitors shall be disqualified unless a competitor is injured or becomes ill and an appropriate health-care professional is not available, only the injured/ill competitor is disqualified."

Note: Every attempt should be made for the appropriate health-care professionals to make these decisions as to assistance.

There will be additional discussion at the National Rules Committee Meeting is mid-June regarding assistance and when it is allowed.
