BLAZE Practice is Underway!
BLAZE practice is underway! It's very important that all athletes who will be competing with BLAZE for the 2017 Outdoor Season begin conditioning and training ASAP in order to be ready for competition. Here is what you need to know about BLAZE practice:
- Due to the renovation of North DeKalb Stadium, the stadium will not be available for practice this summer.
- Due to the renovation of Emory's track, the All-Comers Meets this year will be held at Buck Godfrey Stadium at 2817 Clifton Springs Rd., Decatur, GA 30034, and at Marist School at 3790 Ashford Dunwoody Road, NE, Atlanta, GA 30319. Click here for more information: https://www.atlantatrackclub.org/2017-all-comers-track-field-meet. BLAZE will likely only attend the meets at Marist.
- For the 2017 Outdoor Season, BLAZE will hold practices at Murphey Candler Park (MCP), 1551 West Nancy Creek Drive, Brookhaven, GA 30319. Practices will be held at the multi-use sports field located on the corner of West Nancy Creek Drive and Candler Lake East. GPS directions to the address for MCP takes you to the baseball fields. To get to the multi-use sports field, cross the bridge and turn right. You’ll be turning into the parking lot and will see the practice field from there.
- BLAZE practice will be held Monday through Thursday from 6:00-8:00 pm. (Exceptions are the Tuesday All Comers Meet practices when they are at Marist.)
