There will be no Sonics practice this Wednesday, April 4 at Westbury High School. The rest of this week’s practices at Klein High and Sharpstown High will be unchanged.
Spring is just around the corner and so is a new season of AAU youth track and field! We always begin our seasons with a series of Saturday conditioning sessions to start getting the kids in shape in preparation for the meets that begin in mid-March. For our north side group, these sessions will begin this Saturday, February 17 at 10:00 AM at Klein High School, 16715 Stuebner-Airline Rd. in Spring. Our south side group will have their first session the following Saturday, February 24 at 1:00 PM at Sharpstown High School, 7504 Bissonnet St., Houston. These sessions can be expected to last approximately 1-1/2 to 2 hours.
If you are new to the Sonics, we invite you to bring your young athletes out to one of these sessions to see what we’re all about before you make the commitment to join. Please make sure they are dressed appropriately for the weather and fitted with shoes suitable for running. Also be sure to bring plenty of water so they can stay properly hydrated.
The plan is to continue these Saturday sessions through March 10, weather permitting, after which we will transition into our weeknight schedule (details to come in a future email). We look forward to seeing you all at the track!
Due to this morning’s rain, the 10:00 AM practice at Klein High School has been cancelled. Our next practice session there will be Wednesday, March 15 at 6:30 PM.
We will continue to monitor the weather today to determine whether the 1:00 PM practice at Sharpstown will proceed as scheduled. We will notify everyone ASAP if conditions force us to cancel that session as well.
The 2017 track season is here and the Sonics are ready to get things ramped up! We will have our first practice sessions this coming Saturday, February 18. The north side practice will be held at 10:00 AM at Klein High School, 16715 Stuebner Airline Rd., Spring, and the south side practice will be at 1:00 PM at Sharpstown High School, 7504 Bissonnet St., Houston. You can expect these sessions to last roughly 90 minutes.
If you’re a first-time visitor, be sure to dress your child(ren) appropriately for the weather and have comfortable running shoes and plenty of water to drink. These sessions won’t be intense; we will just be going through basic conditioning and fundamental running technique. If you are unsure about whether track is going to be the right program to commit your child(ren) to, just bring them out, meet the coaches and we will give them a taste of what it’s all about. There is no commitment to sign up. We will have registration details available if and when you are ready to jump in.
We hope to see you all this Saturday!
After the grueling three-day district qualifier meet in the heat, we’re giving our athletes a much deserved break so there will be no practices today, Monday, June 13. We will resume with our normal schedule on Tuesday.
