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
