Runners & Superfans,
This Saturday the Strafford cross country team will be hosting our annual high school cross country meet and we need your help to make it a success. We will need parents and runners to be at school by 7:00 a.m. with all the races be completed by 11:00 am. Runners need to check in with Coach Clements and parents who are willing to help can find me. We need several parents to help with directing runners and a big group to help with the finish line. All these jobs are quick and painless and there is no running involved. You will also be able to watch your kiddo run at all times. Please consider helping, it would be greatly appreciated.
Should there be a specific job you would be interested in, just send me an email and I’ll see what I can do.

Also, we will have Strafford Invitational shirts for sale, which resemble the white shirts the kids received at camp. First come, first served.

This is an all high school race but we would be more than happy to have middle school parents involved.

Coach Fabro

Runners & Superfans,

I’m so excited about the upcoming season and just wanted to keep you in the loop about all the exciting events we have planned.

August 18th – Jr. High practice starts.

August 22nd – Cross country night at the concession stand.  We will need jr high parents to work the 1st half of the game and high school for the last half.  The booster club has been very generous with cross country so lets help them out this Friday.

August 30th – STRAFFORD HIGH SCHOOL XC INVITATIONAL – This is our home meet and we will need lots of parents to help.  7am – 11 am and you will be able to see your child run.  I will send out more information before the race.

September 13th – Strafford “Jog for a Hog” Citizens 5K.  This is our annual team fundraiser and we will need your help to make it a success.  Please let everyone know about the race and encourage them to participate.  It is a donation only race so people can pay what they would like.  Great prizes and snacks after.  More info to come.

I gave the runners a practice calendar that has the dates of this seasons meets but I may have to change some of those dates and locations.  District pairings will not be released until the 15th and based on that I may have to move some meets around.  I will send out a  meet only schedule after the 15th.

Thanks for all your support and I’m looking forward to a great year.

Calling all Runners and Superfans,

Monday is the kick-off to the 2014 season and I am super stoked.  We have had some amazing training runs this summer and a herd of kids working hard and training together.  Here is the scoop for practice next week:


2. Practice will start at 6:30 am with runners meeting at the gym entrance by the softball field.  Please budget 1 1/2 hours for practice. One practice a day until week two.

3. Please have appropriate running shows and clothing, water bottle, and a WATCH with stopwatch function.

4. Positive, upbeat, & can do attitude is mandatory.


See you Monday,

Coach Fabro
