Dear Parents/ Guardians,
Journey’s Fall athletics teams are up and running and off to a great start. My name is Zac Vine (Email: firstname.lastname@example.org) and I am the Athletic Director at Journey Middle School this year.
Our Fall Sports Teams include Cross Country Running, Basketball, and Cheer Club. Practices for all Fall sports have started, yet students are still welcome to sign up.
Our Cross Country Running Team, coached by Mrs. Stephanie Croft, is practicing at lunch hour on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. The team is preparing for the Regional Cross Country meet held on Wednesday, October 17th at the Juan De Fuca Sports Complex. The races will start at 3:45 sharp. Students are responsible for arranging their own rides to and from the meet.
Our Basketball Teams will be practicing on a weekly basis during the month of October & November, and league games will begin in November. This year’s basketball coaches are:
Mrs. Meghan Murphy – Girls 6/7 Basketball
Mrs. Brittany Sims – Girls 6/7 Basketball
Mrs. Jess Federici – Girls Basketball Assistant Coach
Mr. Brandon Von Hooydonk – Boys 6/7 Basketball
Mr. Chris McLeod – Boys 6/7 Basketball
Mr. Alex Wright (Community Coach) – Boys 7/8 Basketball
Mr. Zac Vine – Boys 7/8 Basketball
Basketball practices will be held during lunch hour for the Girls Basketball Teams and the Boys 6/7 Basketball Team. Students can find the day and time of their respective practices on the schedule outside of the gym. The Boys 7/8 Basketball Team will be practicing after school on Mondays and Wednesdays from 3:15 – 4:30.
Basketball games will be played during the month of November. Teams will play 3 small tournaments during the weeks of Nov. 5th, Nov. 19th, and Nov. 26th. A schedule with all the exact times and locations of the games will be handed out to students at the beginning of October. Tournaments are 3 teams, round-robin style tournaments, and will always run from 3:30pm- 6:00pm. Students are responsible for arranging their own rides to and from all games. Buses and teacher driven vehicles will not be provided.
Our Journey Cheer Club is also practicing during lunch hour, and students are still welcome to sign up and come out. There is a great buzz around the school already this year for our athletics and we hope to keep that enthusiasm going all year long. Our Winter and Spring sports will include Volleyball, Rugby, Badminton, and Track & Field. We are looking forward to another amazing year here at Journey!
