Student/Athletes train for speed and agility; that is beneficial for other sports. Many students are involved with various sports and activities, so please let me know what I can do to accommodate your student/athlete. The Track season is short.

Every athlete is eligible to compete in every meet. Each team is allowed to enter as many athletes in each event until the City Meet Championships. All athletes will still compete in the maximum amount of events at the City Meet.
7th & 8th grade athletes may enter up to 4 events – 3 individual events maximum plus 1 relay.
4th - 6th grade athletes may enter a total of 3 events, any combination of individual or relay events is permitted.
Borromeo Academy will furnish a uniform T-shirt for all athletes to wear at meets.
1. Parochial league rules do not allow spikes on any tracks.
2. Running shoes will work great for track practice and meets.
3. Racing flats (spikeless racing shoes) are optional.
4. Basketball shoes or cross-training shoes will work best for shot put and discus.
Please feel free to call me with any questions regarding shoes. There are many inexpensive running shoes available right now if your athlete is in need of shoes.
1. Borromeo Academy is in need of several new assistant track coaches! Borromeo Academy also needs additional parents to help with the practices and meets – no experience necessary. Please contact Coach Fred White if interested.
2. Additional help is needed for meet days; the Parochial League will be issuing our assignments for volunteer help at the scheduled track meets. Parents will be asked to perform duties at some meets such as timing, spotting, bullpen staging, etc. As soon as I know the dates and duties needed, I will recruit help. Please let me know if you can help at one or more of the meets. I am also looking for parents who are interested in helping with team organization at meets. Again, if you should have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
3. Parents are needed to take action and candid photos.
Borromeo Academy track coaches promote a positive and constructive environment for all student/athletes and parents. Coaches will address this expectation at practices to all athletes. If a parent has a problem at a meet, you are welcome to address the matter with me; please refrain from going to a track meet official, or calling the Parochial League.

"Then, taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he said the blessing, broke the loaves, and gave them to [his] disciples to set before the people". —Mark 6:41
During Lent our community will participate in CRS Rice Bowl, a faith-in-action program that invites us to reflect on the challenges of global hunger—and our responsibility to respond to the needs of our global human family.
We will be reminded through the Gospel story of Jesus feeding the 5,000 that if we commit to sharing what we have with those in need, trusting in God's abundance, there is more than enough to feed everyone. Through our Lenten prayers, fasting and almsgiving, we can respond to the call to ensure that all our brothers and sisters are fed good, nutritious food that gives them what they need to fulfill their God-given potential.
During this holy season, it is important to come together as a family and reflect on the cross of hunger and lack of proper nutrition, that so many of our brothers and sisters both near and far are forced to carry. In so doing, we pledge to stand alongside these members of our human family, supporting them as the Gospel calls us to do.
Please consider these suggestions in your family’s Lenten plan:
• Use your CRS Rice Bowl and Lenten Calendar daily to guide your prayer, fasting and almsgiving.
• Read the Stories of Hope and daily reflections to inspire your Lenten journey—and guide your Lenten almsgiving.
• Prepare simple, meatless meals on the Fridays of Lent to eat in solidarity with our brothers and sisters around the world.
• Visit crsricebowl.org to watch videos of the people and communities you support through your Lenten gifts to CRS Rice Bowl.
We will collect your CRS Rice Bowls at the end of Lent, so stay tuned to learn more. Thank you for participating in CRS Rice Bowl with your family.
