9. Show up for practice on time, ready to run at 7pm. Roll call with coaches is from 6:50 to 7:00.
10. Accomplish home-practice workouts as assigned. Too many missed workouts will result in moving down one level (e.g. Black squad to Grey squad).
11. Obtain a coach's excusal ahead of time to miss a practice or race.

giving thanks to God the Father through him.
