Wow, the mock meet was fantastic and the kids did great. I want to thank everyone who helped out during the meet and especially with the setup and teardown, it takes a little bit more to come out early and get everything setup and then to stay a bit late to make sure it all gets put up also.  Thank you. Results are still being complied, but will be published to the website on the track page, the data may change, to correct errors that I may have caused.  
This week, Valencia High has open house on Thursday, so we will have practice on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, and not on Thursday.
Saturday will be our first meet at Valencia High School, we will set up at 7:00 AM, The meet will start at 8:45 AM  We expect the meet to end between 2:00  and 3:00 PM.  We will have another email going out with more information specific to the meet.
See you at practice

This Weeks Track & Field Practice 
This week our practices will be held on Monday, Tuesday, & Wednesday 6:00 - 7:45pm.
All Athletes will need to bring with them a bottle of water with their name on it. A light jacket with their name clearly marked inside next to the collar label. and a good pair of running shoes.
We ask that athletes attend at least 2 practices per week.
If it's raining practice is canceled. However we will practice in a light sprinkle. This makes it tricky, many times it is not raining at the Track when it's raining at home. Do not drop your athlete off if there is a chance of a canceled practice, please stick around.

Loaner Spikes
Each year we have athletes who have out grown their previous year's spikes we ask that you donate those spikes to us, and we in turn check them out your teammates to borrow for the season. If your child has out grown last years spikes and they are still laying around please bring them Wednesday and see Mr Provens.  
He will also be issuing spikes to athletes who want to try them for the season. If the size is available.
Gremlin Parents
A reminder that all gremlin parents need to stay with their children during all practices that their children attend and that parents need to keep additional children and/or siblings with them in the stands or near by if they are on the field helping with the group but they cannot be sent with another gremlin athlete alone to watch over them during practice w/o parental supervision.
All parents need to stay at the track meets that their children are competing at.
