Families of 6th grade students interested in the Patton 6th Grade Running Club,
It is my pleasure to write this letter for the inaugural Charles F Patton 6th Grade Running Club. My name is Matt Hurray. I am a science teacher at Unionville High School and I will be coaching the new 6th grade Running Club at Patton Middle School. Having coached Patton runners since the first season of the 7th and 8th grade team in 2007, I can speak to the power that this program has on student’s self-esteem, self-motivation, and of course running ability!
The 2018 season will last during the months of September and October. In general we will strive to practice 2 or 3 times per week in addition to 4 meets through the season. Practices will start after school and will last until around 4:15pm (please be gracious if we run about 10 minutes late!). Practices will generally consist of a warmup, a running workout, and then will finish with general strength and stretching. A full schedule will be released closer to the beginning of the season.
As it is with most humble beginnings, we will not be able to accept all students who are interested. The team will be capped at 40 runners; ultimately all runners must be registered on FamilyID (https://www.ucfsd.org/inside-athletics/family-id), and we will first look to accept runners who are able to be committed to all practices and meets throughout the season. If you intend on registering for the club please use the following Google Form by August 1st:
