We will be taking team and individual photos through Bell Photography the first week of practice, on Thursday, March 16 at 3:45 pm. The Bell photo packets will be handed out at the parent meeting and will be available to students in Coach Morris’s room. Options range from $25 to $55, and include different photo sizes, as well as photo magnets and even a magazine cover. The packages can also be found at the Bell Photographers webpage at www.bellphoto.com. The web code for Rocky Mountain Picture Day is RMMS93Sports22. Questions can be directed to Bell Photographers at firstname.lastname@example.org.
It is our goal that no student go without sweats this season. If you feel that the price is prohibitive for your athlete, please talk to Coach Morris and we will try to work something out. Coach Morris will do the same with photos if possible.
What to Wear To Practice and Meets:
Students need to report to practice with good running shoes (not basketball or street shoes), warm sweats, gloves, and a water bottle. Students should go to meets with warm sweats, a blanket, a beanie, plenty of water, and food. Meets in Idaho get very cold.
RMMS Track received $17,600 in grants and matching funds this season (grant from Dick’s Sporting Goods and Brooks, Matching funds from District 93). We will have a throws circle with safety net on site this season, as well as a high jump pad and all accessories. Also new will be indoor hurdles, indoor starting blocks, shot puts and discuses, conditioning and training equipment, and more.
