Conditioning exercises will be part of each
practice, to ensure children are able to keep up
the rigors of their sport, particularly the first
two weeks of official practice. If your child is not
typically active outdoors, they will be diminishing
their ability to be successful. Although NBP
is cautious not to overwork athletes, certain levels
of conditioning must take place in order for
athletes to sustain the physical rigors of track and
field. Please ensure that your child drinks plenty
of water throughout the day. If you have any
questions, please see your coach or a board member.
