 March 23, 6:00 - 7:45 at VHS

If it is 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 off your athlete if there is a chance for a canceled practice, please stick around
Please be sure to text STORMTF to 41411 to be added to our alert system, in the event of a canceled practice, we will send a text alert out telling parents to pick up their athlete.
First Meet
Our first track meet will be this weekend  against the Northridge Pacers. 
Setup starts at 7:00 am, We need lots of help with the setup much more than during the mock meet, we meet in the parking lot, some will go to the storage unit across the street to pick up equipment. 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.
