Parent Volunteer Opportunities

September 4, 2017

Hello All,

With the first few weeks of racing comes opportunities for parents to volunteer in supporting our student-athletes. I am reaching out to compile a list of parents who can help on the following meets/days:

Wednesday, September 6: KingCo 2 Mile Class Races

– Each KingCo school participating in the meet is responsible for supplying 2 volunteers to assist with monitoring the course. The window of time we need to staff is approximately 4:00-7:30pm (first race goes off at 4:30p and last race starts at 6:50pm – volunteers will need to be present in advance of the first race for volunteer briefing and station assignment).

Wednesday, September 13: Newport Home Tri Meet at Kelsey Creek Park

– We are hosting a tri meet with two other high school teams at our “home course” location of Kelsey Creek Park. We will be responsible for all course set up, course monitoring, finish chute organization and results collection, and course take down.

– Our biggest needs are for course monitors and finish chute crew, with a volunteer window of 4:00-6:00pm.

– It would be a bonus to have parents willing to help with flagging and cone setup in the hours before the meet starts (estimate 2/2:30pm start to setup if the park will not let us place flagging the night before), and/or make quick work of tear down after the last racer finishes.

Wednesday, September 20: Newport Home Tri Meet at Kelsey Creek Park

– We are hosting a tri meet with two other high school teams at our “home course” location of Kelsey Creek Park. We will be responsible for all course set up, course monitoring, finish chute organization and results collection, and course take down.

– Our biggest needs are for course monitors and finish chute crew, with a volunteer window of 4:00-6:00pm.

– It would be a bonus to have parents willing to help with flagging and cone setup in the hours before the meet starts (estimate 2/2:30pm start to setup if the park will not let us place flagging the night before), and/or make quick work of tear down after the last racer finishes.

Saturday, October 21: KingCo League Championships

– Each KingCo school participating in the meet is responsible for supplying 2 volunteers to assist with monitoring the course. The window of time we need to staff is TBD (race organizers have not finalized the day’s race schedule yet).

Parents interested in volunteering should complete the Bellevue School District volunteer application: http://www.bsd405.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/Volunteer-Packet-Parent.pdf?x27100

Please also let me know you specific day/time availability and I will add you to my volunteer list. Specific information for each set of volunteers will precede each meet.

Thank you in advance for all of your help!

XC Team Document – Fall Parent Night Follow-Up

August 29, 2017

Dear Cross Country Parents,

Thank you for your patience as I have sorted out my Outlook mailing list for Cross Country. This mailing list should now include all of the primary and secondary emails I received from athlete registration, as well as the few additional emails that I have been requested to add. As always, please let me know if I have missed anyone and I will continue to troubleshoot.

Last night’s Fall Sports Parent Night was a great success. Thank you to all who came out to join us  and share in the program we are developing for our student-athletes. We look forward to a season of cooperatively supporting our runners as they grow as athletes and young people.

A packet of team information was referenced and sent home at this meeting. I have attached a downloadable version to this email for those who did not receive a hard copy. Additional packets will also be available for students to pick up today at practice. IMPORTANT: A signed athlete participation contract and parent policy agreement must be returned to the coaching staff before an athlete may compete in their first race. This form is the top page of the packet.

A link to the package can also be found here.

Thank you all for your support. Go Knights!
