Greetings Storm Family, 


This week will begin with our Lap-a-thon, that is on Monday night starting at 5:30. There will be practice after the Lap-a-thon, after cool down. We will need help to put the chips on the kids, and collect them back at the end of the meet.


You should be getting emails from our volunteer coordinator to schedule help with our lap-a-thon and mock meet. Thank to everyone who helped out with pictures.  


Distance will be at Saugus high this week.

Parents please try to arrive 15 minutes early for pick up, in case practice ends early.


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 
Jelly Beans and Jolly Ranchers
Jelly Beans
Parents we ask that you bring 2 bags of jelly beans. We have plenty of Jolly Ranchers, so please Jelly Beans only for the time being.

At the end of each practice we give the kids a few jelly beans as a treat. For the kids with braces, we give them a Jolly Rancher. The kids must be heading out the gate in order to get them.  
The Lap-a-thon is tonight Monday. March 9, please try to arrive at 5:30 to pick up your chip. We will be using our chip timing system to count the laps. 
You can download the  Pledge form  by clicking here or by visiting our website.
We are excited about each and every athlete participating in the lap-a-thon. On Monday March 9 during practice, athletes will run laps on the track for fourty five minutes. This is a very fun event for the kids and an important fundraiser for our team. Money from this event keeps our registration fee low and helps us provide equipment for our training and meets. This is a music-motivated event; singing along, running to the tempo! Oh WAIT! YOU'RE NOT A DISTANCE RUNNER!? NOT important! This is a fundraiser not a race ~ run or walk/dance, create an half hour-long relay team! Challenge yourself! Just recruit your donations accordingly! The more per athlete sponsors you get the more donations! There are 2 ways for sponsors to support our athletes, one is a per lap donation such as $5.00 per lap for you distance runners; the other is simply a flat donation of any amount, for example $20.00.

Our team will acknowledge those who raises the most funds and all participants in this event. A Grand Prize will be awarded to the top athlete who raise the most funds for the club.

If for some reason you are unable to participate the night of the event, families are encouraged to OPT OUT by giving a tax-deductible donation of $40.00 payable to the SCTC. This is our major team fundraiser and requires everybody's support.

The due date to turn in the funds is April 9, 2015. Flat donations can be turned in immediately. Prizes will be awarded based on the most funds raised and turned in by April 9, 2015. Funds will still be accepted after that date but won't count towards the grand prizes, but will go towards the Storm Lap-a-thon
acknowledgement prize.

If you have any questions about this fund raiser please talk to Mark, Elaine or Tom O'Sullivan.
