•If your athlete has a wait time between school & practice, they must either leave the school grounds and return at the appropriate time or check in with After Care by 3:10 PM. There is no charge for athletes who are waiting for practice to begin. There is to be no loitering in the parking lot or at lockers. If an athlete needs to speak to a teacher, they should check in first, and then request permission to do so. This is for the safety and consideration of your child and the faculty/staff at Grace.
Thank you for your support.Athletes must be picked up at the ending practice time or after returning from away games. Please have a conversation with your athlete regarding the amount of notice time needed when we are returning from a game, and the coaches will make every effort to give you the needed advanced notice.

Any athlete remaining after practice or game is scheduled to end will either…

A. be checked in to After Care if it is still open
OR will…
B. be charged the after-hours rate of $12 for the
first 5 minutes and $1.20 for every minute thereafter.

• If you are unable to attend practices at Grace, you should run wherever you can – in your neighborhood, backyard, a park close by, etc. Smart phones usually have apps to measure how far you have walked/run, so you could use that technology to measure your 3.1 or 2.0 mile run.
Try to limit the amount of time you are walking during practice, even if you have to run slowly.
Don’t forget to warm up before and stretch before & after running.
