Section T-shirts - $10!
 
Thank you to everyone who submitted designs for the Section 1 t-shirt! It was a difficult decision to choose the final design, but through a blind (no names attached to the designs) vote, Anni Martell's design was chosen. Congratulations Anni! You've won a free t-shirt!
 
For skiers participating in the Section 1 meet on February 3rd, we will be offering section t-shirts for pre-order beginning tomorrow at practice. An image of the shirt is available under the "Handouts" section. The names of all skiers participating in the meet will be printed on the back of the shirt under their school's name.
 
Captains Anni Martell & Chris Acton will have pictures of the shirts and sample sizes to try on at practice on Friday and Saturday. You may pre-order your shirt through either of them, or send an email to "Coach Ski" (isd196NordicSkiTeam@gmail.com) with your name and the size you want to order. Shirts will be available to pick up at the meet, and cash payment will be accepted when you pick up your shirt. If you are unsure whether you will be skiing at the section meet, please do not pester Coach Abery at this time. Final roster decisions should be made next week, and orders will be accepted through the 27th.

PLEASE READ: Transportation (i.e., Bus Policies) for Meets
 
At our first meet yesterday, a number of skiers and parents requested that athletes accompany them home instead of riding the bus.  As we have posted on this website previously, and discussed with athletes.. IT IS DISTRICT POLICY THAT UNLESS A COACH  IS NOTIFIED IN WRITING OF THIS REQUEST PRIOR TO THE EVENT THE ATHLETE MUST RIDE HOME WITH THE TEAM.  Lacking such prior written notification we, as school district coaches, are still legally responsible for the safety of our athletes and cannot release them.
 
At the current time, our team has over 80 skiers. As coaches, we can not possibly keep track during a race of who is leaving and who is riding the bus as we are far too bus with our meet responsibilities. We do not want to inadvertantly leave skiers at race venues because someone thought they had received a ride home from their parents.  We also do not want to encounter the situation we did last night in which we found ourselves wasting significant time looking for 2 skiers whose parents had not provided written notification they would be taking them home.  In addition, neither of the skiers in question notified a coach that they would be leaving.  Behavior such as this creates serious safety issues and ends up inconveniencing many people.
We do realize that for skiers attending high schools other than EHS picking up a skier after a bus ride at the high school and then driving home is an inconvenience and that skiers may sometimes have to leave a meet early to attend another function.  The district provides parents and athletes the flexibility to do this as long as proper procedures are followed.
 
Parents desiring to take responsibility for athletes and drive them home from meets must follow the procedures below per school district policy:
 
(1) Notify Head Coach Abery in writing 1-day prior to the event. The best way to do this is through sending an e-mail directly to Coach Abery (abery001@umn.edu).
(2) Check-out with Coach Abery (or another coach if he is not available) at the venue prior to leaving.  This "check-out" should include both the athlete AND the responsible parent finding one of the coaches and letting them know they will be leaving the race venue.   
 
Through following these procedures coaches can be assured that they are releasing athletes to a legally responsible adult and we can all be sure that our athletes are safe.
