In order for your TRACK & FIELD season to be successful, we are looking for some help in the following areas:
HEAD COACH - In search of one (possibly two)to oversee SJS TRACK & FIELD.
SUB-ELEMENTARY COACH - we need one (possibly two) coaches for our sub-elementary team (grades 1st - 4th). This person would be responsible for practices, signing up students for each meet, and getting where they need to be at the meets.
MIDDE SCHOOL COACH - we need one (possibly two) coaches for our middle school team (grades 5th - 6th). This person would be responsible for practices, signing up students for each meet, and getting where they need to be at the meets.
JUNIOR HIGH COACH - we need one (possibly two) coaches for our junior high team (grades 7th - 8th). This person would be responsible for practices, signing up students for each meet, and getting where they need to be at the meets.
FIELD EVENTS COACH - we need one (possibly two) coaches for our FIELD EVENTS’ team, which includes all jumping and throwing events. This person would be responsible for practices, signing up students for each meet, and getting where they need to be at the meets.
Please consider taking one or more of these spots. Each of the coaching assignments must be filled in order to have a team for that grade level or specific area.
Plenty of guidance and support will be there for anyone willing to take on one or several roles. You must have met all the Child Protection requirements to be coach. If you are interested and haven’t done so, it is a very easy process and can be done ASAP. Please don’t let that hinder your decision to take on a lead role.
I know many of you are saying that you would love to help but don’t know enough. Don’t let that stop you! We have all the resources to get former SJS students and some of the high school coaches to assist with practices, meets, etc.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at email@example.com.
