What: A club offered to students in grades
1-6 here at CTA Liberty. If your child is in
Kindergarten and they have an older sibling in running club, he/she may also participate. We meet twice a week to build endurace, confidence, friendships and team spirit through long distance running. In 3rd quarter, the runners will have 3 opportunities to compete against other CUSD schools. Additionally, if you would like to run with us, parents are always welcome to volunteer or donate snack. Please fill out BOTH sides of the permission slip and return it with your child.
When: Mondays and Wednesdays from 2:40-3:40 pm throughout 2nd and 3rd quarter. On these days, be sure that your child wears tennis shoes to school and that they bring a water bottle to stay hydrated during the school day and at practice. Our first practice will be Monday, November 4th. In 3rd quarter we will have 3 races against other Chandler schools on Tuesdays or Thursdays.
Where: We meet on the basketball courts and will run around the school grounds and the park adjacent to the school.
Before each race we will have a qualifying race
at practice. To qualify, your child must run 1.5 miles in 25 minutes or less. They will recieve their permission slip at practice that day. The permission slip muts be signed and returned to Miss Freeman by the due date. Running Club races are held at Tumbleweed Park. The races begin at 3:45 pm. We ask that the students try to be there by 3:15 so that we can gather up as a team and warm up for the race. Each race ends at approximately 4:45 pm depending on when all the runners have finished. When the race is over, there is an award ceremony for the top 5 finishers of each grade level and gender. We ask that parents bring their child to and from each race. Parents are not allowed to run with their child during the race.
We use the Remind app which is a text or email alert that you can recieve on your phone or email. This allows us to communicate any last practice cancelations and other important news blasts. A link will be provided when a new group for the 2019 school year is created.
You may also email one of our coaches with any questions you may have.
