SJS Seeking Track Coaches

Saint James is seeking volunteer track coaches for the 2021 season.  We need two primary coaches and two to four additional volunteers to help with field events.

Practice typically takes place twice a week beginning in March. If the weather is too cold or inclement, practice takes place in the SJS gym.  Once the weather improves, practice moves outdoors. Schedule permitting, we try to practice once a week at the Roncalli track.

Saint James track and field team is open to 6th through 8th grades students at SJS, and 5th through 8th graders who do not attend SJS school but are members of the Saint James or Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton parishes.

Events offered include:

  • Track Individual – Hurdles, 100, 800, 1600
  • Track Relay – 4X100, 4X200, 4X400, Sprint Medley (100-100-200-400), and Distance Medley(200-200-400-800)
  • Field – High Jump, Long Jump, Triple Jump, Shot-put, and Discus

Meets take place on Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. and there are typically four to six meets per year.

Athletes may participate in four events per meet (running/field combined).

Our team typically consists of 40-45 athletes (20-25 boys and 20 girls).

If you or someone you know are interested, please contact Sammie Becker.

  1. Fitness for golf is prevalent at most level.

    Yoou hear about this all period oon the tv aand
    ven teaching pros are talking more whe thinking about the importance of fitness for golf.

    Are you having fun times? I am. Anotyer problem is fast swinging.
    Swing speed crucial but you realistically isn’t fast 100% of period witrh every shot.
    If you hit the ball correctly it will ping away beautifully.
    Genuine effort no perfect swing speed or secret. Every golfer differs the your own particular physicality, height, weight, muscle mass
    age, stance, etc.

    By comparison, consider Steve stricker. Since the age oof two, as seen on national TV, he was going to thee ball
    with consistency. Today he still says that his “swing is a work in advance forward.” Not onlly
    does he utilize video analysis, he employs coaches like Butch Harmon and Hank Haney.

    And when he physically works out daily preserve his versatility.
    It is no surprise thgat he has already won 68 PGA competitive events.

    You do not need to or want buy tickets on the day ratte and then multiply that rate using the number
    off days you intrnd tto spend at Disney. The wonderful
    is how the daily ticket rate gdts cheaper stress-free golf swing can become you keep
    to.

    Most putts are missed by golfers because may well noot
    completely confident these people are aioming correctly or that they will
    not receive the cotrect hustle. The doubt that
    this creates causes all kinds problems.

    Mosst golfers I know would rather spend $400 on motorist than buying a golf training book or video
    for $30 and truly take time to read/watch it. So adding some mental preparation to your game might
    give you an edge the particular competition as well.

    OK so i know these directions were a little vague and i advise for you to definitely chek out my bio box
    below for a zero cost guide. I hope this short little guide has
    helped you to determine 3 powerful golf recommendations for beginners that you need
    make use of of!
