CTK Track News for the week of 25 Apr 2011...

Happy Easter, Track Families!

We'll practice twice this week:
  • Practice: Tuesday, April 26, 5-6:30pm, College Park High School track
  • Practice: Tuesday, April 28, 5-6:30pm, College Park High School track
All CTK/SC/SS athletes are welcome at practice.

Relay Meet
Our annual Relay Meet will take place this Saturday at Ygnacio Valley HS at 9am.  All of our athletes are eligible to participate, qualifiers and non-qualifiers alike.  We'll even have second grade races again!

The relay meet consists of these events:
  • 4x100m relay
  • 4x200m relay (2nd - 4th grade)
  • 4x400m relay (5th - 8th grade)
  • Medley Relay (200/200/400/800m)
You might think that this meet will be quicker, since there are only four events, but somehow it seems to take about as long as our regular practice meets.

Relay teams need not be grade pure, gender pure, or parish pure for this meet.  In fact, we always try to get everyone who wants to run onto a team by having a "free agent" area where kids who don't have enough teammates to form teams can gather and be plugged into their teams.   

YVHS Student-Athletes
Since we'll be running at Ygnacio Valley High School, there will be student-athletes available to hire to work your shift.  As before, the donation is $20/shift.  Thank you for supporting YVHS athletics!  (Have I mentioned lately that it's my alma mater!?)

Picnic Coming
The annual track awards picnic is coming up on Sunday, May 29, at 11:30am at the Pleasant Hill Park.  Please mark your calendar.  Here's how it works: Bring your own hot dogs, hamburgers or whatever you want to grill, as well as something (fruit, chips, cookies, potato salad, whatever) to share.  The team will fire up the grills and provide soft drinks.  After eating, at about 1pm, we'll break into our groups one last time so that the coaches can hand out some final ribbons.  Then everyone will gather so that we can hand out a whole lot of team awards.  Of course one of the highlights is our annual extra-helpful parent drawing.  I hope you all can come!  If you need one more incentive, the entire 2011 Lost & Found collection will make its final appearance.

See you on the track,

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