With the summer season quickly approaching the Excel Program would like to announce a few changes made to it’s summer programming options. Traditionally the program has offered two groups; one for guys and one for girls. Due to large demand on the guy’s side, the program has shifted to having three groups instead of two this summer. Those groups will be divided up by age level into groups of Girl’s Grades 6-12, Guy’s Grades 6-8, and Guy’s Grades 9-12.
Start Date: Monday, June 13, 2016 Dead/Off Week- July 4- July 8
End Date: Friday, July 29, 2016
Times for each group will be as follows:
Girl’s Grades 6-12 (Runs Monday/Wednesday/Friday from 8:30-9:45)
Boy’s Grades 9-12 (Runs Monday/Wednesday/Friday from 9:45-11:00)
Boy’s Grades 6-8 (Runs Monday/Wednesday/Friday from 11:00-12:15)
Also new this year, is a requirement that all attending athletes have an up to date physical on file. Athletes without an up to date physical will not be allowed to participate in the Excel program until a physical is received. Physical’s must be dated AFTER April 16, 2016.Please contact the athletic office with any questions regarding this new requirement.
In addition, in trying to make the Excel program a bit more dynamic, we may change some Friday workout times to allow for a change of location, or a larger group activity. These events will be communicated in advance.
