2014/15 Football Season

2014 Football Season will be starting in a few weeks! All practices will be held at BLMS right after school and will generally run until 4:45 (which is when we would like to have players picked up). Here are some important dates that we should note:

Aug. 4 – Equipment checkout at 5 pm @ BLMS small gym

If you cannot make this date we will hand pads out also Aug. 14 right after school, however, kids will need to be picked up by 4 pm.

Aug. 18 – First day of practice (we will wear helmets and t-shirts and athletic shorts)

Aug. 21 – First day of practice in full pads

More information/schedules/team rules will be handed out once practices start.

Please let me know if you have any questions!

2014/15 Cross Country

     Cross country practice will begin on Monday, August 18. Practice will be from 3:00-4:30
after school five days a week. There will be some exceptions to this which will be noted
in a practice schedule athletes will receive as the season gets underway.
     PLEASE make sure that you have a current physical on file in the office BEFORE
practice on August 18th. Student CANNOT participate without a physical on file.
Athletes will need to wear running shoes and dress appropriately for running outside
regardless of the weather conditions. It is also recommended that they bring a water
bottle as we often are running some distance from the building and as a general rule do
not come inside for water breaks.
     The cross country team meets in the commons area at 3:00 to begin practice as the gyms are being used for volleyball. There are not “tryouts” for cross country. All runners make the team.
We will have 7 cross country meets beginning with the BLHS meet on Thursday, September 4th, and ending with the league meet on Monday, October 13th. Race distances are 1 mile for 7th grade and 2 miles for 8th grade.
     If you have any questions, you can email me atrgore AT usd458 DOT org.  I am looking forward to another great CC season at BLMS!
