Charger Athletic's News
3/7/17: Spring must be coming, first track practice tonight at 5:00! First track meet is April 1st! Mark and Darrel will have them ready to go! Charge On, Charger Strong!
3/1/17: From our Track Coach Mark Krier,
Spring is here and we're ready to get started. Let's hope it we keep this weather and better all the way through!
TEAM PARENT MEETING -- TRACK NIGHT -- March 2 -- 6pm @ Road Runner: We've set up something special this year -- something many bigger schools also do -- to try to solve a problem we have every season. Darrel and I have talked many times about shin splints. We run in track (!) and it causes a lot of pain for some of our kids each year. It's also usually preventable if you simply wear the right type of running shoes for your physiology. To help us get the right shoes on the right kids, we've set up our team/parent meeting as Saint Al's Track Night on Thursday March 2 from 6pm to 8pm at the Road Runner Sports store in Kildeer. (Thanks to Rosemary Baroud for getting this ball rolling!) This will also be our team parent meeting -- so we'll be giving you information and answering your questions about how our season is planned, what to do and what to expect. Road Runner will close the store for us and have their people fit our kids for shoes on their treadmill setup (they have three), as well as explain the how and why of proper running shoe fitting. We will get 10-20% off in store for all purchases. They also kick back to Saint Alphonsus 7% of the sales. If at least 10 kids sign in for the event, they'll kick back even more. There will also be pizza, Gatorade, and maybe a raffle or two. Please let Mark know ASAP to confirm you can make it -- Road Runner will need to know how to staff and how much pizza they should get! Our hope is that we get as many kids (and parents!) as possible into the right shoes to prevent injuries -- for less money -- and raise a little for St. Al's Athletics -- while learning a bit about how to buy the right shoe for your gait. Win-win-win-win. I need new running shoes for the spring and summer, so I will definitely be there!
2/28/17: What an amazing season our Basketball Teams had! To honor all of our players for their commitment and achievements we will be having a Pep Rally on Wednesday March 8th at 1:30 in the gym to congratulate our awesome Athletes! Come out and help us cheer them on!
2/28/17: Last week our 8th grade girls finished their Charger career with a 38-36 loss in the playoff semi-finals! I had the privilege of coaching this team for 5 years and I could not be more proud of the fight and dedication the girls showed this season. With just 7 girls on the team we competed all season and showed what it means to be a Charger! Good luck in High School Girls! Charge On, Charger Strong.
