Hope everyone survived their first week of the 2019 - 2020 school year. Here is the first official IXC weekly update for those who joined us recently. Our team is pushing 100 students & it was fun meeting all the new people joining our team.
Long Weekend Optional Practice
We have optional practice over the long weekend for JV/V and select Intermediates. These practices are for Groups 1 & 2. Group 3 and students who joined this week, please take the extra day to rest up and recover.
Saturday, 8/31, 8 am - 10 am
Monday, 9/2, 8 am - 10 am
As promised at the parents meeting, we've already had an minor update to the schedule. Please note that the first race for next Saturday, 9/7, starts are 2:45 pm; 15 minutes later than originally scheduled. The timeline including the bus times has been updated. Note that it is not mandatory to take the bus, but please be on site in time for the team warmup. A PDF copy of the finalized schedule is available for download on the schedule page and also here.
The first couple weeks of school is always a big adjustment. Please make sure you are doing your best to stay healthy. Get your sleep in, take your vitamins & supplements, eating healthy foods, staying well hydrated (with your own water bottle), etc.; i.e. do everything in your power to have your immune system in top form. A lot of people went on trips towards the end of the summer, and that means germs from all over the world coming together on campus for the first few weeks. Better to be extra prepared than getting sick.
Let me know if you have any questions & have a great weekend.
