Approved Distance Athletes – When practice is at CENTRAL PARK the distance athletes will meet near the basketball courts. 6:00 pm – 7:15 pm. Please pick up kids from Central park before heading back to Saugus high School if you have children at both practice sites.

(Note this applies to the Approved Distance athletes that have done the mile test, or are returning distance track athletes).

If you have children that have to be dropped at both the track and the park, drop at the track first at 5:45, and then at the park, do not leave children unattended! Please make sure there is a coach present before you leave. Pick up at the park first and then the track.

RAIN POLICY
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. 

or text “follow @stormtrackclub” to 40404

Jelly Beans & Jolly Ranchers

Parents we ask that you bring 2 bags of jelly beans or Jolly Ranchers.

At the end of each practice we give the kids a few jelly beans as a treat. For the kids with braces, we give them a Jolly Rancher. The kids must be heading out the gate in order to get them.

We ask that 3-5 parents be ready at the end of each practice to hand them out, this only takes about 5-10 minuets..

Run with the Best –  Storm Track & Field

The Santa Clarita Track Club is The Premier Youth Track and Field Team.

We are a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the physical fitness, mental stamina, and team building skills of children ages 6-16, regardless of ability.

The Storm Track program is designed to introduce kids to sprint and distance running and field events by providing an experience that is fun, competitive, social, and informative about the sport. We continue to achieve excellence by developing top-notch training programs, with an emphasis on the fundamentals, competition. We retaining the most knowledgeable, dedicated and professional volunteer coaching staff.

There is a reason Storm is the Largest Team in Santa Clarita Valley and the Nation!
It is because of the dedicated staff of volunteers that ensure that every athlete is coached and no athlete is left out of achieving their potential.

More Top Santa Clarita High School athletes have ran for Storm than any other team. Storm produces athletes who truly love the sport. Each year Storm has more athletes who are awarded college scholarships than any other Youth Track and Field Program in the Santa Clarita Valley.


If you would like to join our Urgent Alert Text System, on your cell phone text the word “STORMTF” for Track and Field, or “STORMXC” for Cross Country 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.
