Applications are now available for our afterschool LEARNS Co-Ed Flag Football program. 
First priority will be given to students who are in our LEARNS program, and any available 
spots will then be offered to students outside of our LEARNS program. Please complete the 
attached paperwork and return it to our LEARNS Coordinator Chaz Collins or to our main 
office. For questions regarding Flag Football please email 

We're excited to announce that SMMS Cross Country team is returning this fall to compete 
in the 210 League with 7 other schools!

SMMS will have 4 teams (Varsity and Junior Varsity Boys and Girls teams) that will each be 
racing in two meets. The races will be 1.5 miles long on a fairly flat course (likely at Lacy 
park). Everyone will get a chance to race and all are welcome regardless of previous experience! 
If you're playing other sports in the fall, cross country is a great way to build endurance 
and speed to help with them too. It's also just fun to run with your friends!

The team will practice twice a week before school. We will meet at 7:30am on the SMMS 
field Tuesdays and Thursdays for a bit of running and drills before school. There will often 
be some sort of food like bagels/donuts for the kids to eat after running since they will likely 
work up an appetite.


The volunteer parent coach this year will be Adam Wierman. Adam's daughter Rebecca is a 
6th grader. He is a Professor at Caltech in Computer Science and ran track and cross country 
in college, captaining the team to DIII nationals. 

Important Dates

• First practice: Tue Aug 30 @ 7:30 at the SMMS field. (If you are interested but can't 
make this first practice, don't worry. Just let Coach Wierman know!)

• Regular Practices: Tue/Thu 7:30am at the SMMS field. (Note that we may occasionally 
run on neighborhood roads in addition to on the field.)

• Races: Oct 6 & Nov 10. 

• We will also look into finding a local 5k that we can do as a team for fun to wrap up 
the season. Maybe the Rose Bowl Turkey Trot.

Parent Volunteering

If you are interested in volunteering to help coach or help in any other way (e.g. bringing 
bagels/donuts for after practice or snacks for after the meets) please let us know in the form 
below! Any/all help is appreciated! 

If you have questions about the team, please reach out to Coach Wierman (adamwierman@
