Dear Storm Family,


I would like to thank everyone who helped out with the mock meet, results are posted to our website hopefully you got an idea of what the meet will look like this weekend.


We are going to need some people to stick around and help clean up at the end, it takes a while to tear down the timing equipment and pack it up, and we will need help to move to our storage unit across the street. If we could have a couple of dads or moms who have trucks able to return and assist with tear down it will help a lot. 


We will be sending out another email about this weekend's meet and volunteer duties needed.


We will also have a schedule of the day's events.

Our first track meet will be this weekend hosting the San Fernando Valley Rush at Valencia High School.


Please sign up to volunteer during the meet.

Setup starts at 7:00 am, We need lots of help with the setup, we meet at the Track, 


We will need a few people to setup our staging area in the center of the field, that requires setting up benches for the kids to sit on during staging. a few pop up tents. We need parents to put the hurdles out for the start of the 80 meter Midget races.


Athletes this week will be signing up with their coaches what events they would like to do, Depending on the age of the athlete there are limits in how many events they can do each week. Gremlins are limited to a maximum of 3 events, everyone else is limited to 4 events maximum, but 1 event has to be a relay for Bantam through Youth, Intermediates 4th event can be an individual event (ie not limited to a relay), If you have any questions about the number of events please ask your coach. The conference has a very strict policy about over eventing, the athlete will be Disqualified in all events of the day if they compete in too many events at a meet.
