      WIAA Announces New Start Date for Fall Sports

      During its July 7th meeting, the WIAA Executive Board took action to delay the start of the fall season until September 5th for football and September 7th for all other fall sports.  The Board will continue to work with staff, member schools and state agencies to monitor the impact of COVID-19.  The Board plans to make its next statement concerning the start of fall sports on July 22nd following its next scheduled meeting.  In the interim, a committee of Board members, staff, and select WIAA stakeholders will work to create a fall schedule with the adjusted start dates.

      Summer Conditioning is Going Virtual (for now)

      On June 23 we heard from the Deputy Superintendent that "Northshore Schools will not allow district athletic activities until at a minimum phase 3 is reached." This means that we will not be able to conduct our usual July in person conditioning at least until mid-July at the earliest. So for now our pre season conditioning will consist of individual training efforts supported by training schedules found on this website (see article below). Additionally the coaches will schedule online meetings with athletes to offer further guidance and support. An important reminder to register for fall sports in Final Forms as early as possible as updates and messages from the athletic department will come through that. In addition ALL forms need to be completed prior to attending in person training this includes athletic physicals. Completed physicals may be sent to Lance Gatter (lgatter@nsd.org) electronically or by regular mail to the school.

      Preseason Cross Country Conditioning

      Why are June, July, August the 3 most important words in cross country? Because these are the months that matter the most in our short competitive season. Most of our runners are done with their competitions at the end of 9-10 weeks. It can take on average 5-6 weeks to get the body fully conditioned for running and another 2-3 weeks to be ready for competition. If you begin training on the first day of practice on Aug 24 you should be ready to race by the end of the season. At least in theory. We all know everyone is different and some people need more time than others. We have found that over time those athletes who have more running under their belt coming into the season tend to be healthier and stronger runners and suffer fewer injuries than those who wait until the start of the season. What kind of season do you want to have? 

      There are 3 new documents in the More Great Links page of this website.

      2) Return To Running: Follow this plan if you have been running a few days per week since March
