2011 CTK/SC/SS Track Sign-up Announcement


Happy New Year!

Sign-ups for the 2011 Christ the King, St. Catherine, and St. Stephen CYO track season will take place on Thursday, January 20, and Monday, January 24, from 6:30pm to 8:00pm at Christ the King School in the 6th grade classroom. The address is 199 Brandon Road, which is at the corner of Brandon and Gregory Lane in Pleasant Hill.

We'll begin practice on February 1st, and we plan to hold the usual Tuesday and Thursday practices starting at 5pm. We'll be practicing at College Park High School track again this season.

There will be meets every Saturday from March 5th until the diocese meet on May 8th, except for the Saturday before Easter (April 23rd). What I already know of our meet schedule is posted on the web site.

The fee this season is going to be $65 for each athlete, or $55 if your athlete's T-shirt from last season will still work for them. (Families finding the fee difficult should contact me privately.) Please bring your calendar to the sign-ups as we will once again expect you to sign up for five volunteer work assignments and leave a $50 deposit to encourage you to follow through.

As usual, we are very interested in having parents (experienced or not) sign up to coach with us. We usually end up with upwards of 200 kids on the team and coaching so many athletes requires plenty of help. We are particularly interested in finding parents with experience in our field events (long jump, high jump, and shot put) . Please contact me if you have any questions.

If you are interested in more information, please contact me or check the team web site, at If you spot any mistakes on the site, please let me know as I've just updated it for 2011 and have probably made a few errors. The Handouts page, for instance, has the forms you'll need to sign up.

Finally, if you are interested in helping out at one (or even both) of the sign-ups evenings, please contact me. We usually manage to draw quite a crowd and having plenty of experienced track parents on hand to answer questions helps a great deal.

We are looking forward to another great season on the track.

Best regards,


Carl Godkin
CTK/St.C/St.S Track & Field Coordinator
