Jogging Club

Barksdale Broncos in Training (BIT) is our morning jogging club that meets on Monday and Wednesday at 7:15am. BIT members meet on jogging course on the north side of the school. Fill out the online form here: https://forms.gle/98phWDpCW49AVcdr9

We have a REMIND account where updates are given if weather is questionable for us to go outside or other announcements need to be made. This is the best way to get immediate information. If you would like to receive reminders, please use https://www.remind.com/join/joggingclu or text 81010 and use the message @joggingclu (no “b” on the end) to be added to the text messages.

If you have any questions, please contact Coach Kool at cheryl.kool@pisd.edu
