Meet the coaches night


All parents are invited to attend our annual “Meet the Coaches” evening on Thursday, January 31, at 6:15 pm in the Fenwick Student Cafeteria.  A light buffet style dinner will be served.

The coaches will talk about our upcoming season, special meets, expectations for our athletes, training, diet, and more.  It’s a great opportunity to connect with other parents too.

Please look for the information sheet and form that your son will be bringing home.  

Also parents, if I do not have your email address, please send me an email and I will get you on our newsletter email listing.  The newsletter is a great way to get the latest in Fenwick Track happenings, directed from the coaches to our parents.

The coaching staff hopes that you’ll be able to make some time on January 31 to join us for food, information, and a warm welcome to our program.
