Many parents are asking how relays are determined, here is a brief description on how this is done. There were some very disappointed athletes at the meet because those who did not stay, or arrive on time for their team! Those who were there will defiantly be on a team this week.
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) coaches discretion
2) attending practice
3) able to hand off smoothly
4) Time in the 100 metes at a meet
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 age group coach or Coach Elaine

THINGS TO BRING TO A TRACK MEET
Water (lots of it)
Snacks (healthy ones) fruits, veggies, sandwiches, power bars, health bars, etc.
PowerAde/Gatorade (if desired)
THINGS TO DO AT A TRACK MEET
The first thing on arrival is to have your child find his or her age group coach. Check in with them to get the event tags they will be doing at that meet. Make sure they have their 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 or forty athletes are.
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 Gatorade/Powerade. NO SODA!!. Soda depletes the body of fluids. Keep them relaxed and from running around. This is a good time to have them play cards or board games with a friend.
