Sign-ups for the 2009 Christ the King, St. Catherine, and St. Stephen CYO track season will take place on Thursday, January 22, and Monday, January 26, 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 3rd, and we plan to hold the usual Tuesday and Thursday practices starting at 5pm. I expect we'll be practicing at College Park High School track this season.
There will be meets every Saturday from March 7th until the diocese meet on May 9th, except for the Saturday before Easter (April 11th). The track at DVC is supposed to be available for meets again this season although our meet schedule is not ready yet.
The fee this season is $60 for each athlete, with no multiple child discount any longer. (Families finding this difficult should contact me privately.) Please bring your calendar to the sign-ups as we will once again expect you to sign up for four 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 almost 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) or who are willing to join us for distance workouts ("road runs"). 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 www.ctktrack.org.
(I have your email address from last year's Christ the King, St. Catherine, and St. Stephen track season. This is meant to be a one-time mailing unless you sign your athlete up again. I know that some of you will receive more than one notice and that some of your kids have passed 8th grade.)
We are looking forward to another great season on the track.
