THINGS TO DO AT A TRACK MEET
The first thing on arrival is to have your

sweats on, it will be cool when they arrive.
Your child will need to be aware, at all
times, of where his or her coaches are. Keep
track of what event is being called ("First
call, all Gremlin Girls 200 meters, Last call,
all Midget Boys 1500 meters", etc). It is
impossible for the coaches to know where thirty

Athletes must warm up before each event. Have
them check with their coach on when they should
report in for warm ups with their group.
As the day warms up, keep your athlete OUT
OF THE SUN. Use lots of sunscreen, and have
them drink plenty of water and drinks like

have them play cards or board games with a
