The 2024 season is coming up soon and we cannot wait to see what this year will hold. As always, we are hoping to build upon last year. Some of the new additions and changes coming this year are as followed:
More Practice Days and Times: We will be adding more days and times through the Fall. Beginning in November we will be open Monday through Thursday as well as Saturday mornings. Monday and Wednesdays will be jump practices 4 to 6, Tuesdays and Thursdays will remain the same (4 to 630 and 6 to 830), and Saturdays will be 10 to Noon.
Long Jump and Shot Put Open Practices: Beginning in November we will have open long jump/ triple jump practices on Mondays and Wednesdays 6 to 8 and open Shot Put practice also Mondays and Wednesdays 6 to 8. Currently we don't have any coaching provided for these events, but we are in the works to bring someone on.
We added more cameras! The location of these new cameras allows us to track more of the run through the vault. This will hopefully allow us to catch fixable things we might have missed in the post.
Annual Membership Fee: Beginning in January we will have an annual membership cost of $100. For newer people who are coming for the first time, they will have a month trial period before they will be asked to join. This Full Membership status will be required in order to rent poles monthly or meet by meet. The proceeds from this are going towards continued improvements for the club. Our next project is to improve the outer wall to help with keeping the place warm in the winter as well as cleaning up the image (in short, take down the blue tarps).
2024 waivers are online: This year we are trying a new format for our waivers. They can be filled out and completed online from your phone. In the past, we were more relaxed with making sure that waivers were updated, but with this new process it will be easier for us to track completion as well as easier for parents to complete. You can fill out your waiver for 2024 now on the website under services > waiver. If you wish to pay by card, cash or venmo, let me (Coach Dangel) know and I can create a discount code so you can complete the online portion.
New Monthly Plans: We updated our monthly plan and came up with 2 new options. The first is 8 practices for $200. This is similar to what the monthly plan was in the past. This gives athletes 2 practices a week at a discounted rate. The second option is fully unlimited for $250. This allows athletes to come to as many practices as they would like for a month, PLUS paid registration for home meets during the winter and summer.
We have big plans for this coming year with plenty of other new ideas. Our goal is to have monthly updates throughout the year as well as weekly recaps during the season. Thank you all for helping QCVA be as successful as it has been so far.
