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.

If you would like to join our Urgent Alert Text System, on your cell phone text the word “STORMTF” to 41411 and you should be greeted with a welcome message, we use this system rarely for very important urgent alerts, for example, We cancel practice early due to unforeseen circumstances

It’s been brought to my attention that if your using T-Mobile, you may have to contact them to have Text Message Blocking shut off while you enroll. I believe once your enrolled you can turn it back on. Click here for more information

 

Please be sure to check with your cell phone provider if you are having trouble connecting to our urgent alert text system.

 

We will try to help you, but in most cases if you get an error trying to connect, I suggest you contact your customer service and see if there is some type of blocking on your phone preventing signing up for these types of text systems, I’ve been told that some games use text systems to bill your phone, our system will not bill your phone, we are paying for it.

 

Alternatively: If you use Twitter, you can join our twitter feed. We also tweet all of our urgent text alerts.

To sign up for twitter alerts,

1) text “follow @stormtrackclub” to 40404
2) You should get confirmation that you are following us
3) Urgent text alerts will be texted to you the same as if you joined the alert system.

I believe this will work even if you don’t have a twitter account.

We do tweet out a link to our newsletter each week also, so you will get more information from us via twitter than our Urgent Alert Text System.
