Craig Sports Briefs for July 22, 2013: Moffat County High School physicals at end of July at TMH clinic

Athletes who still need to get a physical in order to play sports in the coming school year can do so for cheap at The Memorial Hospital Clinic coming up.

TMH Clinic, 785 Russell St., will offer physicals from 5 to 7 p.m. July 30 for $15. All athletes must have a physical completed before they are allowed to practice. The physicals are available for high school and middle school students.

High school boys golf practice begins Aug. 5, and the rest of high school fall sports begin Aug. 12.

Moffat County boys golf to hold preseason meeting

With high school boys golf starting practice a week before all other fall sports due to weather concerns in the later part of the fall, MCHS is hoping to get a jumpstart on the season.

The team will hold a preseason meeting for anyone interested in playing golf at 7 p.m. July 29 at the high school to go over important information and hand out forms.

Practice begins the following Monday, Aug. 5, and in order to participate all athletes must have completed their physicals and have all parental consent forms signed and turned in.

As a result of the early start to the season, it is common for golfers to miss the first couple days of practice because they do not have the proper paperwork, said co-curricular athletic director Rick Schmitz.

Those forms and other information will be handed out at the preseason meeting.

MCHS having fall sports parents information day

Moffat County School District Athletic Director Rick Schmitz has scheduled a parent’s night for all high school fall sports.

The meeting will begin at 7 p.m. Aug. 12 and will give parents a chance to meet the coaches of the fall sports teams — boys golf, boys and girls cross country, football, volleyball, boys soccer and cheerleading — as well as discuss other information pertinent to the upcoming sports season.

A similar meeting is being planned for middle school fall sports, but does not have a set date yet.

Water aerobics classes at city pool for the summer

Residents looking to get a unique kind of exercise can attend water aerobics in either shallow or deep water this summer.

Water aerobics offer a low-impact form of exercise, making it easier on bones and joints while still offering resistance to improve fitness and flexibility.

The classes began June 3 and run through Aug. 15. They will be at the Craig Swimming Complex, 605 Washington St. Shallow water classes will be Mondays and Wednesdays during the summer from noon to 1 p.m. and 6 to 7 p.m. Deep water will be Tuesdays and Thursdays at the same times.

The drop-in cost for individual courses is $4. For more information, call Craig Parks and Recreation at 826-2029.
