Thanks From all of us at
Santa Clarita Track Club
Dear Storm Parent,

On behalf of the board of directors I want to thank everyone for making the season such a success, your kids were a great part of this team and we've enjoyed so much having you and your children a part of the program, watching them work so hard to realize their dreams and achieve their goals has been very rewarding for all of us who have helped coach them.  I also want to thank everyone who stepped up and volunteered to help out all season long the coaches who worked with the kids and everyone else who helped at all of the meets. Our club was truly a "worker" club and at almost every single meet we were doing all the major parts of the meets.  
As the season has come to an end for most of you, there is still 1 more race for the top athletes of the conference, those are the kids who finished in the top 4 on Sunday's meet. The best fifth place athlete from either our league or the eastern league may be invited to compete in an empty lane if the race is held on a 9 lane track, we'll know more about who is going after the seeding meeting on Tuesday.
The picnic will be held in two weeks on June 6th at Newhall Park.
I've posted a couple of videos with the pictures that I get from you, and they look great, the kids are having a great time, and from the looks of the pictures so are  the parents, I still have some pictures and if you want your pictures in the video's please be sure to send them to me, the best way is on a CD at practice, I will still be attending the next 2 weeks at the IEC practices, even if your child is not practicing with us you can stop by to check the communication boxes for pictures and ribbons.
 The website will be updated a bit later in the week, there is still a lot of work to do and it will take a bit out time for me to catch up still with the website. the Track pages will be updated over the next few days and upon the picnic it will be archived.
For the top athletes, there is still practice for those athletes who finished in the top 5 places and might be going on to the IECs, 
We will be having a General Membership meeting some time next month to elect board positions. There will be more news about that as we finalize the date.
Cross Country is coming up and your welcome to join, there will be more details about that coming soon.
