    • Late rides equal cut from events at meets 
    Weather will only cancel practice if 1) There is snow accumulation on the actual track  2) There is lightning.
    Otherwise, we practice in the snow, the cold, the wind, the rain, and the snow.
     
    Please do not bring anything of value to practice as there is no locker room and everyone's stuff goes on a designated section of bleachers.
