Track reminders: Field clinic and more

Hi families, just a couple of quick reminders:

* New to the team?

All the past newsletters are available online:

The Parent Info page is a good place to start if you're just joining up

* Field clinic on Saturday from 1:30-3:30pm

We're holding a special practice on Saturday at College Park to practice field events. We're scheduled to have the whole track and field to ourselves.

We could use some parental help at this one: chasing down softballs, raking long-jump pits between jumpers, returning shots and resetting the high-jump bar. If you're working one of these events at a meet, you can consider this practice for you, too (but sorry: it doesn't count against your volunteer time.) If you're able to help, send me an email at and let me know. We'll be setting up around 1pm.

* Special helpers

We could still use another person or two to work the first-aid station at meets. We're also still looking for help with the 4th-5th grade boys at practice.

* Forms

Remember that to be fully enrolled, I must have the following on file for every athlete -- even returning athletes:

- CYO permission/health release form
- CYO concussion information sheet
- A copy of the athlete's birth certificate (photocopy is fine)

All forms are on the team site:

You can always hand me paperwork at practice, and I try to send around mail about missing forms. I hang on to the birth certificates until the athletes age out of the program, and then shred the copies.

Thanks everyone, and I'll see you at practice.
