I update the practices/calendar every week.  These will have what we are doing (may change due to weather or other conditions).  You can also subscribe by clicking the + sign at the bottom.
RPE Input:
Feedback from the athletes is critical to provide the best coaching I can.  We use a simple online Relative Perceived Exertion (RPE) database to track and assess training.  All athletes are asked to fill this out after practices (even practices outside Exceleration).  This tool will help me plan for practice.
