Until further notice, the Tuesday/Thursday practices at Sharpstown High School have been put on hold due to demolition work being done on site that is directly impacting the track. We will resume Wednesday practices at Westbury High School while investigating its availability on Tuesdays and Thursdays. We should this question resolved before the end of this week.

Due to STAAR testing this week, there will be no practice at Sharpstown on Tuesday, April 10 in order to give our youngsters a better opportunity to prepare for their tests and be well-rested. We will, however, be having Wednesday practices at Westbury and Klein.
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.
Sonics Wednesday practice, April 20, at Klein High has been cancelled due to continued rain and commuting difficulties around the north side of the city. South side practice tonight at Westbury High is tentative at this time. If you are considering coming out to run, please contact Coach Tim Woods (281-658-7405) to confirm before heading over there.
This Friday, April 15, there will be no practice held at Westbury High School. The normal Wednesday/Friday practice schedule will resume next week.
This week the Sonics will begin holding practice sessions at 6:30 PM on Wednesdays and Fridays at Westbury High School, 11911 Chimney Rock Rd, Houston, TX 77035. This means that on the south side of town we will have practice opportunities every weeknight! However, this does NOT mean that we expect our athletes to add two additional practices to their weekly schedule. But what it does mean is that we have much greater flexibility. With three different south side locations and five evenings available, it should be easier for everyone to get the recommended 2-3 sessions per week to ensure continued development. It also means that when we have our inevitable rain-outs, we will have more options for make-up practice sessions.
Kudos to Coaches Tim Woods and Dana Raspberry for doing the leg-work to secure this new site for us!
