What a great first meet we had! The kids were awesome! It was fantastic to finally see all the hard work from practice put into competition. For many it was their first meet and we were really proud of all the athletes, coaches, and all the parent volunteers who worked to make this a great event for the Storm.


Our next track meet is an away meet at El Camino High School. While it is a dual meet it will be our largest track meet against teams this year with the exception of the 2 day invitational meet.

We will still need help with field events and tag pulling and relays zone judging, and other volunteer duties. Please click here to sign up (Tag Pulling is not on the list, when called please just come out to help, its a lot of fun and the best seat in the house).
Meet results are posted to our website on the Track & Field Page. (scroll down the page to see the events, also athlete data is in the right column).

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.

We are now going to also be tweeting our urgent alerts via twiter follow us @stormtrackclub
