Indoor Update - 1/3

Darts - 
Happy 2016! It is a great time to set some goals, make some plans, and really show some determination and effort to accomplish some great things in the upcoming year (or track season). I hope you have enjoyed the break, and that you are ready and excited to get some work done in January. I love this time of year as we get a fresh start and we get going with our first indoor track meets. The invitation to participate in indoor track is still out there to EVERYONE getting this email (even if you didn't do much in December). We will meet tomorrow (Monday) at 2:45 in the cafeteria - I hope to see most of you there!

2015 Year In Review - For those of you interested, I did a write up on the highlights of 2015. It is posted on our track blog - 

USU Invite - The Utah State Indoor Meet is this coming Saturday (1/9) in Logan at the Nelson Fieldhouse. The main goal is just to get some opening marks and have fun competing. I will send out specific information (schedule, entry fees, address, etc.) later in the week. We will be taking 1 bus or you can travel up there on your own. The bus will leave Davis early (approximately 6:30am) and the events will begin around 8:30am. More details to come. 

Spikes - For those of you new to track and field, it is a good time to look into buying some racing spikes. There are different spikes for sprints/hurdles and distance races. If you are planning on doing the long jump, pole vault, or high jump, you can use sprint spikes to start with (even though there are specialized jumping spikes as well). I recommend going to Striders in Layton or Wasatch Running Center in Centerville. Both places have a good selection of sprint or distance spikes. You can also shop online - has some great deals on track spikes. Occasionally (if you are lucky), you can find a killer deal on spikes at Ross - but it is sometimes hard to find the correct spikes. Let me or your event coach know if you have specific spike questions.
