This Weeks Track Meet

Our track meet this week is an away meet, it will be at Granada Hills Charter High School, 

10535 Zelzah Ave
Los Angeles, CA 91344


Click here to volunteer to work an event we have 1 Long Jump pit, Shot Put and to help with High Jump. 
Many parents are asking how relays are determined, here is a brief description on how this is done.

It is very important to the team that if your athlete signs up for a relay that they are at the meet and checked in before 8:30 am so the coaches can assemble the teams. If your child is signed up for a relay and does not show up or is late, it will effect every other relay runner, and disappoint those who can not compete.

This is the only event that we are strict on signing up for.  Please don't sign up for the relay if your athlete can not compete in the event.

Criteria for relay team assignment.
1) time in the 100 meter race (at a meet).
2) attending practice
3) able to hand off smoothly
4) coaches discretion.

all of this is considered when coaches put together their teams (A-Team, B-Team, C-Team, etc...).

if you have any questions about this please speak with your agegroup coach or Coach Elaine
Lost and Found 
We have a huge amount of lost and found, we have no place to store it.

All items will be donated to Good Will at the end of the week every week.
Communication Boxes
The communication boxes will be at the track on Wednesdays. Your athletes meet ribbons will be in them and any items that we have to distribute to you.
