Rocky Run will have 2 teams of 15 students each. Students will have 2-3 events that they will participate in.
Once they know these events, they should start studying; lots of resources are on the blackboard and RR SO website.
Students must meet once a week with their partner with Mrs. Ritchie in Room 132 on a Monday or Wednesday from 2:30-3:30pm.
We are a Division B Team, the general rules and manual must be followed closely.
Please read over and talk over the events with your child. We have to put students in each of the 23 topics so not everyone will get their top choice.
Mrs. Ritchie is NOT the sole coach on this team. Each parent must commit to helping their child and partner practice, study, and prepare.
