INDOOR TRACK

Waza Track Club

2021 Indoor Track Season

Practice Schedule

Indoor Track practice will begin Monday, January 18, 2021.

St. John Lutheran Church – Bethlehem Activity Center, 23225 Gill Road, Farmington Hills, MI  48335.  The gym is at the far west end of the facility.

Practice sign up required using BAND app.  

We will conduct training in the gym in an individual training format with proper social distancing and masked participation throughout.  We will endeavor to comply with State of Michigan and CDC guidelines throughout the indoor season.  There will be little tolerance for those that deviate as our continued use of the facility requires strict compliance.

Practice sign up required using BAND app.  

Practices will be M, T, Th, Sa.  M, T, Th will be 6 – 9:30.  There will be 3 slots for training.  6 – 7:30, 7 – 8:30, and 8 – 9:30.  We will take 10 athletes per training slot.  Watch for a sign up invitation to follow.  Sa there will be two specialty training events.  9 – 11 will be throws with 10 slots.  11- 1 will be high jump with 6 slots.  Training slots are first come, first served.

Each athlete will be required to bring their own training mat.  We will assign medicine balls at the beginning of practice and will not share implements.  If you do not have a mat, we can provide Waza TC mats at the beginning of the season.  That mat will become your athletes for the rest of indoor and they can turn it in when the season ends.  Note, some of our mats are in pretty rough shape, so we encourage all to get their own.

The practice cycle will start with check in / hand wash at the entrance to the gym from the west.  Athletes will drop off coats, etc. in the class room south of the gym, get their medicine ball, and then proceed to their individual lane in the gym.  All training will take place masked until CDC guidelines do not require it.

 At the one-hour mark, athletes will move out of the gym with med balls and mats to the carpeted area for core/strength/stretching.  Once practice is over, athletes will transition out of the facility through the classroom door.

 With the exception of a couple parents that will assist with traffic flow and equipment, all parents will be required to remain outside in the parking lot during the training.  Please do NOT leave the property.

Practice sign up required using BAND app.
