INFORMATION FOR THE 1 DAY BKL PROGRAM:
|Location:||Ray School (Rear parking lot, near school garden and gymnasium entrance)|
|Technique:||Dryland (Please wear tennis shoes; no skis needed!)|
Parking: Please park in the main parking lot, bus drop-off, or parent drop-off circles and walk your child to and from the sign-in location. DO NOT drive into the rear staff parking lot closest to the start of practice as this area becomes very crowded with children at the beginning and end of practice and has no good turnaround spot.
Clothing for mild temperatures: We still have beautiful fall weather, so please send your children in appropriate clothing. This means: tennis shoes, light mittens or gloves, hat, lightweight jacket. We will be running through the woods and playing in fields and don’t want your children to get too hot – or to get cold. (Snow pants and boots will be too hot for tomorrow.)
Sign-in: We expect that sign-in processes will become more efficient over time. However, please bear with us while we work out the kinks. All K/1 and 2nd grade students should be signed-in and out of practice by a parent. Children in 3rd or higher grades can sign themselves in, however our coaches still need a verbal or visual verification that their parent/guardian is present at sign-out. As a reminder, please make sure that your child is under adult supervision at all times before and after practice! No child may be unsupervised on the Ray School property!
Bathrooms: Please make sure that your child has gone to the bathroom before practice starts. If needed, there are restrooms in the Ray School that can be used under adult supervision.
FORD SAYRE CLOTHING:
We still have Ford Sayre t-shirts in all sizes for $5. Shirts, and other great items, can be ordered on our online gear store, and will be delivered at our next practice.
REMINDERS ON TIPS FOR A SUCCESSFUL PRACTICE:
- Practice starts at 3:30 and is only one hour long since sunset is before 4:15. We do our best to begin on time, so try to arrive early so your child can get checked in and find his/her grade level group. We will have signs posted to make it easy.
- Wear non-cotton layers, wool socks and running shoes (no winter boots), hat, and light gloves or mittens. See our What to Wear When you Ski page for more information.
- Sign your child in and out of every practice!
- Save a few minutes to come say hello at the end of practice to the coaches. They are wonderful and want to meet you! You can read about them online on the Meet Our Coaches page.
LOST and FOUND
We will have a small lost and found bucket by the K/1 check-in area. Any items that are found will go in this bucket.
Lost: Two pairs of Axeman leather mittens. If you have found them, please bring them to the lost and found bucket.
