Practice Schedule: Practice begins at 3:45 p.m everyday.
Practice will end by 5:45 each day.
Parents who pick up their student after practice must meet in the
track parking lot on Brand Road. With few exceptions, no one
should cross the bridge back to campus after practice.
All athletes should bring proper attire
to practice. This includes t-shirt, shorts, sweat shirt, sweat
pants, and training shoes.
Parents who attend practice are
respectfully requested to watch from the stands and must stay
outside of the fenced competition area.
In the event of inclement weather, the
coaching staff will determine the status of practice. This
decision will be made by 12 noon on the day of practice. The
athletic director, principal, and Cobb Central Office may elect to
cancel practices at any time they feel it is in the students best
interest. Cold and rain do not automatically cancel practice. On
these days we will try to move indoors for practice. A sign will
be posted on the Track gate directing parents to the front school
parking lot for pick ups.
Attendance at practice is mandatory for
all members of the Cross Country team. Roll will be taken each day
at the beginning of practice. Roll will be taken each day at the
beginning of practice. The head coach will use school definitions
to determine excused and unexcused absences. Athletes should bring
a note or school admit slip when returning from an absence.
Unexcused absences will result in disciplinary action. A fourth
unexcused absence will result in dismissal from the team.
When scheduling tutoring, doctor/dental
appointments, etc., team members should try to work around the
Track Team schedule. This does not imply that students should miss
school instead of practice. Instead, the parent and student should
attempt to schedule appointments on student holidays, early
release days, and non-practice days when possible.
Unexcused tardiness is negative for the
team. Thus, an individual unexcused tardy will result in (but not
limited to) team push-ups, bleacher running, and trash detail.
Multiple unexcused tardies can result in suspension from meets
and/or possibly from the team. If at all possible, let the
coaching staff know if you are to be late for any reason.
