Greetings Storm Family, 


We have a lot going on this week. 


Tuesday evening is our Parent Meeting, we will have 2 of them. 5:45 & 7:00 pm, we ask that parents of Gremlin athletes attend the 5:45 meeting, if you are unable to attend that one, but can make it to the 7:00 pm meeting then come to that one. If you have an athlete who is older than Gremlin age group, you can go to either. 


Saturday - Feb 14 We will have our first practice at Valencia High School on Saturday at 8:00 am. it should end about 9:45 am. 


Next Monday is a holiday so there will be no practice on Monday Feb 16.

This Weeks Practice Schedule

Saturday Feb 14 - Valencia High School 8:00 am - 9:45



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 urgent alert system, in the event of a canceled practice, we will send a group text alert out telling parents to pick up their athlete. 

or text "follow @stormtrackclub" to 40404
Meet the Coaches

Coaching Opportunity
We are looking to add assistant coaches in all areas, sprints, distance & field event coaching. We will train you. If you are interesting in coaching, please contact Elaine Bingham for more information.  *Coaches & Volunteers must be able to pass a background screening
Stormwear - Spirit Wear

Click here for the Stormwear order form. Fill it out, and turn it in, we will fill these orders at the Parent Meeting. 
Urgent Message Alert System
If you would like to join our Urgent Alert Text System, on your cell phone text the word "STORMTF" to 41411 and you should be greeted with a welcome message, we use this system rarely for very important urgent alerts, for example, We cancel practice early due to unforeseen circumstances
It's been brought to my attention that if your using T-Mobile, you may have to contact them to have Text Message Blocking shut off while you enroll. I believe once your enrolled you can turn it back on. Click here for more information
Please be sure to check with your cell phone provider if you are having trouble connecting to our urgent alert text system. 

We will try to help you, but in most cases if you get an error trying to connect, I suggest you contact your customer service and see if there is some type of blocking on your phone preventing signing up for these types of text systems, I've been told that some games use text systems to bill your phone, our system will not bill your phone, we are paying for it.

Alternatively: If you use Twitter, you can join our twitter feed. We also tweet all of our urgent text alerts.


To sign up for twitter alerts,

1) text "follow @stormtrackclub" to 40404
2) You should get confirmation that you are following us
3) Urgent text alerts will be texted to you the same as if you joined the alert system. 


I believe this will work even if you don't have a twitter account.   


We do tweet out a link to our newsletter each week also, so you will get more information from us via twitter than our Urgent Alert Text System.
