Practices will be focusing on an introduction to cross-country. Each day will consist of light introductory running, running drills, race strategies, and lots of fun running games.

Be a part of the Amoeba Game, Marker Game, Relay Games, Banana relays, Caterpillar Crawl, Ultimate Frisbee with high school team, and two cross-country meets. Treats and Gatorade will be provided after each practice and awards on meet day.

All practices will meet at the track at 3:45 p.m. Practices will be done by 5 p.m., each day.

"We plan on being very low key in the approach with the kids. Having fun and participation will constantly be stressed above all else," said Head Coach Jeff Morris.

Workouts are intended to introduce running for longer periods of time (which very seldom get over 10-20 minutes in length at one time) stressing some of the basic fundamentals and techniques while learning to enjoy running.

"Coach Kay Morris and I look forward to working with the younger kids. Their enthusiasm and excitement is contagious and they are fun."

For more information call Coach Morris at the high school, 218-346-1515, or at home in the evening 218-371-5992 or email jmorris@perham.k12.mn.us.
