Jr. High Track and Field Information

Hello Penn Manor Jr. High Cross Country families,

The track season is almost here so I want to pass on a few more details to get everyone ready for the first day!

All middle school students will take an Activity bus over to the High School. They will be dropped off at the new entrance where temperatures will be taken. From there, athletes may use the locker rooms to change, but are asked to bring all of their belongings up to the track.

9th graders may start their season with the Varsity team on Monday, March 8th. The coaches will determine which team will be the best fit for them.

All athletes are expected to wear full sweats, bring their own water bottle and wear a mask. As we did in Winter Track, athletes will still need to wear masks during the entire practice.

Please remember to send in the PIAA Recertification form and Code of Conduct on the first day of practice.

Practice will end at 4:30.

If you have additional questions about Jr. High Track and Field, please direct them to Head Varsity Coach, Ben Schober at ben.schober@pennmanor.net

Thank you!

Practice canceled 3/4

Hello Penn Manor Jr. High Cross Country families,

Manor Middle School has switched to remote learning for the remainder of this week. As a result of this, we will not be able to have our last practice on Thursday. Thank you to all of our athletes who were able to come and run together. Even though it felt like a short season, we were still able to work on speed and conditioning along with trying some new exercises!

If you still have a rope and band, please contact me at andrea.kramer@pennmanor.net and we can make arrangements for their return.

I will send out information soon regarding Jr. High Track and Field.

Thank you and GO COMETS!!!

Jr. High Winter Track Update

Happy New Year to all of our Penn Manor Jr. High Cross Country families! We are looking forward to starting Winter Track next Tuesday, January 12th.

Practices will be on Tuesdays/Thursdays at Manor Middle School from 3:00-4:30. We will follow the same guidelines that were in place during Cross Country so all athletes should wear a mask, bring their own water, and will have temperature checks before practice. Activity buses will run after school each day. Athletes may use the locker rooms at Manor Middle School to change and store their belongings except for days when there are home basketball games. We will have an alternate plan on game days. We will meet in our usual spot behind the school and everyone should come dressed for the weather since we will be stretching and running outside.

Updates/cancellations to our practice schedule will be posted on the blog, through the Remind App, and announced in the schools.

If you have any questions, please contact me at andrea.kramer@pennmanor.net.

Thank you and GO COMETS!!!
