Cross-Country – If you missed Thursday’s Cross Country Team information session and you intend to participate, please sign-up via electronic sign-up form on the BNS website (Students/Athletics-Fall Sports/Cross Country Team). Cross Country may be the ONLY sports activity allowed for the Fall Session…so make up your mind whether to participate…this is your chance to get into shape for your other athletic activities, relieve stress, get a sports credit, try something new!  Practices are starting today and will be every Monday, Wednesday and Friday with all running members meeting at 2:50 pm by the Oval Track for stretching, and warm-up (masks to be worn for that)… followed by a run (around oval track, the big grass field and the Terry Fox Route) – Social distance running bubbles enforced via sending out the Junior Girls first then Boys, followed by the Senior Girls then Boys. Upon finishing, there will be a cool-down (get into sweats, and warm clothing) and post run stretching (wearing of masks again). Practice is usually over by 4:00pm – 4:15pm at the latest. You will need to attend practice a minimum of TWICE a week to be on the Team (unless you can assure Mr. Seehagen you are running somewhere else – soccer, lacrosse, rugby, etc.). Proper running shoes and gear (wet-wick shirt, shorts/ running shorts/pants needed) – No Jeans! Any questions see Mr. Seehagen in room #19 or Ms. Oatway in the Sports Center.
