Cool Runnings Homeschool Track Team
To our Cool Runnings Homeschool family,
The Cool Runnings Homeschool Track and Cross Country team has been running strong for almost 15 years. It has been a terrific place for homeschoolers to meet up to run, train, and compete. Many local homeschoolers have benefited from the training they received from Coach Art and Cool Runnings.
This year, however, brings some changes to our team. Kelly MacDonald, Coach Artís assistant for the last several years, has taken a full time position at Abilene Christian Schools and will no longer be serving as the team's manager/assistant coach. Also, AISD is now allowing homeschool students to compete on AISD sports teams. Most of our high school students have chosen to go this route this year. Because of these changes, Coach Art has decided to redo how he is training students. There will no longer be a set group meeting time to run at ACU. If your student still wants to train with Coach Art, he will offer private training times at a time that will work for both him and your student. If a few students want to group together for those training times, Coach will work with you on that. Please contact Coach through email or text to discuss what will work best for both of you.
Thank you for helping the Cool Runnings team be such a great place for our students these many years. While it will look different this year, we hope your students continue to run and train their bodies. We pray everyoneís school year goes wonderfully!
