POST-MEET RECOVERY AT NEUROSPORT:  fullsizeoutput_ba9f

Neurosport (located near Marlow’s Tavern) is reserving recovery time for our athletes on Saturday, September 15 (after Mustang Stampede) from 2:00pm-3:30pm after the meet.  The recovery will be 15 minutes in the recovery boots and 15 minutes of foam rolling/ stretching. The total session will last approximately 30 minutes.  Cost: $15 drop-in rate per athlete or you can sign up for a membership which will provide you with unlimited sessions for the month for $39.  Kids who have memberships should sign up on mindbody.com

We must give them the names of athletes by this Wednesday, September 12 at 5pm.  Please reserve your time by sending an email to annvance5@att.net.   Send your name and preferred time slot (2pm, 2:30, or 3:00pm).

 

XC PARTICIPATION FEE IS DUE:

We have a few families that have not paid the RHS Participation fee.  Please sign on ASAP.
At the parent orientation meeting, Coach Evans talked about a new Participation Fee that RHS is implementing (other schools have been collecting this in the past). It is a $75 fee per athlete per sport. The funds will stay with Cross Country and not be used by other sports. The funds will be used for things like going to state expenses, uniforms (in the future – we have already purchased this years’ uniforms…etc.), and other expenses that are incurred that Booster fees do not cover.  We definitely plan to use the funds to purchase badly needed new singlets.
Please pay this fee online, if possible using this link:
https://osp.osmsinc.com/FultonGA/Default.aspx drop down on “High” and select Roswell HS. Then click on either Girls CC or Boys CC and follow the prompts. Processing fees have been waived. This is the preferred method of payment so that Coach Evans doesn’t have to write out an individual receipt for each check/payment he receives. He would greatly appreciate your payment online.

It is important to note that the school collects these fees – it does not and cannot go through the booster club.

 

Pasta Dinner this Thursday, 9/20:

Our first Pasta Dinner will be hosted by Emily Smith (runner: Abby Smith) this coming Thursday.  This is a fun carb-loading dinner for our athletes.  We need a lot of parent volunteers to help with set up, cooking and clean up.  Parents, please see the Sign Up Genius and help us out!  All details are in the SUG.

Pasta dinner is immediately following practice and ends at 7:15pm.  We also need a few parents to transport some kids from practice to the dinner.  Please encourage other athlete-drivers (if old enough) to carpool younger athletes.

Lanyards and Magnets:

Runners, if you have not received your lanyard and magnet (they are part of the uniform package), please go to Coach Allegood’s room in E-hall to pick up.
