Athletics News

Greetings Royals - here is what is happening in the world of Quist Athletics

  • The coaches and I met this week to assess our team's season and active steps they could take to ensure that we were demonstrating sportsmanship in both winning and losing contests. Our coaches are amazing and collaborated to share some great ideas with each other.

  • Practice continued this week. A/B/C rosters have been established and this has been communicated to athletes.

  • If your family has a fine in IC, this was communicated with families. All fees must be paid before participation in contests can happen. Please bring payment (cash or check) to the RQMS main office. Please contact Kate Brown if you have questions.

  • After the break, our games are on Tues (no game - BYE) and Thurs (vs Overland Trail A is away, B is home, C is home) - All of our events are scheduled on our school calendar. Here is the link if you need it.

  • Pictures were taken on Nov 9 & 10. Here is the link to purchase either individual or group photos. Purchase is optional. The deadline to purchase is Nov 19.

  • Please check the website for the presentation that was shared with families during our meeting at the beginning of the season.

  • Here is the link for Remind - please sign up for updates on your cell and the option to communicate directly with coaches.

  • Here are the expectations of what athletes could wear on game days. A Team - warm-ups on away games, shirt & tie on home games. B Team - white jerseys on away games, blue jerseys on home games. C Team - wear your jerseys on game days.

  • Eligibility is pulled on Thursdays and shared with athletes during practices on Fridays. If an athlete is not eligible, this impacts next week's games. In order to become eligible, the athlete needs to complete an Eligibility Rubric AND improve the grade in the classes with D or F grades. 2 or more Ds or 1 F is considered ineligible. Additionally, an athlete could be ineligible if they are not showing RISE/ROAR behaviors in their classes. If there are concerns, teachers will communicate with families about what is happening and coaching will be provided to show improvement.

  • An awesome B team parent has started a Sign-up Genius. Here is the link if you would like to help provide snacks for the B team. There are 15 players total. All snacks/drinks have to be single serving and pre-packaged, due to Covid restrictions. A & C team families, please let me know if one of you could help set up something similar.

  • We have scheduled the end-of-season celebration and get this date to you. This will be for athletes and coaches only and we will send out a sign-up genius for volunteers to help with food at a later date.

We are waiting to see what the end of the season looks like. There is a strong possibility that we will be hosting the championship games for both B and A teams, but we need to wait and see how the end of the season plays out. As soon as we know, we will communicate with you.

Take care,

Catherine "Kate" Brown
