Bantams- Please join us at the M2B Community Challenge this Sunday

Bantams,
Track season is over, but we have one last opportunity to come together for some laughs and enjoy cheering on runners! This Sunday, come and join fellow athletes and families, motivate the marathon runners and try to help Tigres to win a share of $5,000.
And the best of all, our very own Bantam Coach Shannon will be running in her very first marathon!!!  I know she would love to see all of your smiling faces out there!
The Tigres are participating again this year in the Community Challenge at the Mountains2Beach Marathon.  We, along with many other community groups, have been assigned a “Cheer Station” on the route of the Marathon.
The idea is to cheer as loud and be as memorable as possible cheering on the runners as they pass by our station.  At the conclusion of the marathon, the runners will select the winners of the Community Challenge!  First place receives $3,000, second place $1,500, and third place $500.
We need as many enthusiastic people as possible to join us out on the race route to cheer on the runners!  And I know how loud and fun all of you Bantams are!
  • Tigres will be Cheer Station FIVE
  • Our location is 300 W Stanley
Directions are:
From Seaward Ave.
Get on the 101 N
Get on freeway CA-33 N
Take exit Stanley Ave.
Turn right onto Stanley Ave.
  • Please be there at 6:00 am and we should be done before noon.
  • Wear your Tigres uniform and any Tigres gear.
  • If you can, make a fun/inspirational marathon sign (Pinterest has some great ideas)
  • Bring anything to make noise
  • If someone can bring a portable sound station, please do so
  • Brings snack/drinks, and sunscreen.

Bantam Season Recap Part 2- Final

Dear Bantams and parents,

As I type this, I am grinning from ear to ear after spending an amazing day watching our CCC athletes run, jump, and throw with intensity, conviction, and just the right amount of silliness.  I also feel truly sad that the season has reached its end.

At today’s meet, we had many excellent finishes and placed high on the podium in several events.  Some athletes ran despite not feeling well, not wanting let their teammates down and still gave it their absolute all out their on the field.  Other athletes stepped in or were willing to step in for those athletes that simply could not compete today.  Everyone cheered their hearts out and even when a baton dropped,it was picked up, and the race was resumed without ever a thought of giving up!  This is all the stuff of which champions are made.

Thank you athletes, parents, and coaches for a magical season.  I am grateful for each and every one of you!

For those wanting to continue running throughout the summer, I encourage you all to come out and try the Boogie Nights Run Series held each Wednesday night for 10 weeks starting this Wednesday.

https://runsignup.com/Race/CA/Ventura/BoogieNightsSummerRunSeriesVentura?remMeAttempt=

Boogie Nights is a 5K (sprinters are running in fear now) and a free kids 1K.  If any athletes want to try the 5k and want a pacer, let me know ahead of time and if I can, I will come and run with them.  We usually have a good Tigres turnout and it supports Buena Cross Country too:)

Finally, for those still needing to pick up their end of season goodies and for those athletes that did not get their medals from today’s meet, look for an upcoming Tigres team-wide email regarding day(s) and times to pick them up soon.

Have a wonderful offseason!  Happy running and I look forward to seeing you all next season.

Warmly,

Coach Carol

 

Bantams Season Wrap up- Part 1- Please Read

Bantams,

It was great to see most of you at our Tigres picnic today!  For those who missed it we thanked the parents, the coaches, and all of you amazing athletes.

At the start of our Bantam gathering, we acknowledged our athletes that competed in League Championships yesterday.  In my nervousness of speaking to large groups, I accidentally left out one of our amazing athletes.  I want to publicly give a huge shout out to

Bennett Rodman for her 8th place finish in the high jump- Bennett you rock!

For those of you that were unable to attend the picnic- we missed you!  I will be at Buena this week Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 4:30-5:30 with your gift/ribbons/team picture.  Please come by to pick it up and give me one more high five.

Thank you all for your kind words, gifts, and hugs.  I miss you all already and I hope we see each other over summer running and playing in our beautiful town.

Warmly,

Coach Carol

P.S.- Part 2 to come next week to share our athletes successes at Co Conference Championships:)

Bantams- League Finals Meet

HI Bantams and Parents,

Thank you all for a great Monday practice!  A big thank you to all of the parents that filled and brought water balloons!

We will be back at Buena on Wednesday for our last Bantam team practice:(

This week’s meet is League Finals on Saturday at Buena High School (8:30 start).

This will be a large meet with 3 other teams from the VCYTC.  There is NO qualification for this meet – all athletes can compete.  However, there are a few guidelines to follow.

  • Regular event limits apply – 4 events, 3 of which can be running (the 4×400 does not count towards event limits)
  • You must have competed in the event sometime during the season in order to compete in that event in League Finals.
  • You cannot compete in any event in which you are in the top 9 (laned events or field events) or top 12 (distance events) in the VCYTC.  Please check Athletic.net on to see where athletes rank.

For athletes that do not qualify for the Conference Championships, this will be the last week of practice.  We will be posting a list of athletes who qualified for the Conference Championships as soon as all of the results are loaded into Athletic.net.  There will also be some athletes that may be asked to participate in relays who did not qualify for individual events, so please check the list closely to see who will be participating.

Sign ups for this weekend’s meet will be at practice on Monday and if an athlete qualified for Championships in an event that event will be blacked out on the sign up sheet as a reminder that they cannot compete in that event this weekend.

Thank you all

Warmly,

Coach Carol

Bantams CORRECTION to 3-11-17 email regarding Finals and Championships event limits

Hi Parents,

In yesterday’s email, I explained the event limit for Finals and Championships (formally known as JV and Varsity), incorrectly.  Please see below for the correct explanation.

An athlete can compete in as many events that they qualify for in the Championships meet.  If they qualify for 2, 4, 8 or every event, they can participate in all of those events.

League Finals West meet does not require qualification and the event limits are the same for our regular meets.

However, an athlete may not run the same event in both meets.  For example, if they qualify for the 400 in the Championships, they can not run the 400 in the Finals meet.

They must have participated in an event in our regular season to participate it in Finals and Championships (this is a given for Championships because they have to have a qualifying time)

If an athlete qualifies for the 100 or 200 in Championships, they can not run the 4×100  in League Finals.

If an athlete qualifies for the 400 in Championships, they can not run the 4×400 in League Finals.

Clear as mud, right?:)

 

Warmly,

Coach Carol

 

Bantam Upcoming Meet and Practice Schedule

Dear parents,

As we (too quickly) approach the end of our regular season, please read the following important information

Upcoming meets:

Saturday April 15 Home meet against Newbury Park Panthers.  Meet start time 8:30 am, arrive at 8:00

Saturday April 22 Home meet against Heritage Valley Blazers Night Meet- meet start time 3:00pm, athletes arrive at 2:30

Saturday April 29 League Finals West (NP OX OJ @ VTA) at Buena 8:30 am start, arrive at 8:00

Saturday May 6th VCYTC CHAMPIONSHIPS @ MOORPARK High School (qualification required- see below)

Qualification for the VCYTC Championships is based on athlete rankings within our conference, as follows: For the 800M and the 1600M the top 12 athletes compete; for all other distances, the top 9 compete; for field events, the top 9 will compete.

Saturday May 13th  CO-CONFERENCE CHAMPIONSHIP VCYTC/SCYTFC @ (TOP FINISHERS VCYTC CHAMPIONSHIPS TO COMPETE)  At Ventura HS

 

Upcoming Practices:

Monday April 17th and Wednesday April 19th– regular Bantam practices

Monday April 24th– Bantam Fun Day at Arroyo Verde Park 4:45-6:00  More information to follow next week

Wednesday April 27– Last Bantam team practice for athletes not moving on to VCYTC Championships (see above)

 

Here are some important things to think about as we approach League Finals and VCYTC Championships:

Any and all athletes may compete at League Finals

– In order to compete in an event at League Finals, the athlete must have competed in that event during the regular season. If, for instance, your athlete thinks they want to compete in the 400 at League finals but they have not run the 400 at a previous meet, they must run the 400 this week or next week. The same goes for all field events.

– If an athlete qualifies for and decides to compete in an event at VCYTC Championships, they can not compete in that same event at League Finals – but they can compete in any other event (as long as they have previously competed in that event.) Exception –  if an athlete runs the 100 at VCYTC Championships, they can not run the 4×100 at League Finals and if an athlete runs the 400 at VCYTC Championships, they can not run the 4×400 at League Finals.

In terms of event limits, League finals and Championships count as one event.  That means that if an athlete qualifies for an event in Championships and wants to run a different event in the League finals their overall event limit  between the 2 meets remains 4 events with up to 3 events being running events.

I hope this makes sense, feel free to email me back with questions. I encourage you to encourage your kids to try a new race or two over the next two meets, to allow them to have more options with the League Finals and VCYTC Championships.

Happy running and GooooOOOOO BANTAMS

Bantams – this weekend’s meet information

Hello Bantams and Parents,

I hope you are all excited about this weekend’s So Cal Youth Invitational meet right here at Ventura High School!

Below is a link to the flyer which has the schedule of events.

Please remember that the event order is different from our normal league meets. Also keep in mind that this meet is much larger which means more heats of each race.

Athletes do NOT need to arrive at 8:00 for this meet.  I suggest you check the schedule to determine approximately what time your athlete first competes and plan to arrive at least 45-minutes beforehand for warm up and check in for running events. For field events, there is a time range.

On Saturday, the first running events are the 3000 followed by the hurdles – Bantams do not compete in these.

The first running event for Bantams will be the 100, followed by the 800, and then the 4×100

Some Saturday field events for Bantams start as early as 8:30 and are open for several hours, meaning they can come during that time frame (and only during that timeframe) to complete their event.

 

http://www.vcytc.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/socal_invitational_2017.pdf

Looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow.

 

Warmly,
Coach Carol

Gooooooooooo Bantams!!!!!

Bantams SoCal Youth Invitational – Please Read

Hi Parents and Bantams,

Congratulations on another great meet filled with awesome effort, teamwork, and personal bests.

 

This Saturday and Sunday Is the  SoCal Invitational Meet

The Meet will be held at Ventura High School

Events start at 8:30 each day.

A few things to note about this meet that are different from our other meets.

  • Coaches are not allowed on the field.  However, we will be in the stands, at the edges of the field, and anywhere else we need to be to help get the athletes where they need to be.
  • Athletes do not get stickers for this event, instead they sign in at staging with their name
  • Please have your athlete check in with me when they arrive
  • I suggest that families try and sit near our Tigres tent and listen carefully for calls.  The further spread out we are as the team, the more challenging it is to get all athletes to their events on time.
  • Most of our athletes have signed up for relay teams- yay!  Please remember that relay teams are a commitment and that we need to have full teams of 4 to compete.  At this meet, all athletes are signed up for their events ahead of time and if we are missing an athlete, we can not just pull in another athlete to fill that team.
  • Please help your athlete arrive on time for their relay team.

The following athletes are running in the 4×100 relay:

Ab, Anthony, Austin, Ben, Blake, Christian, Connor, Ethan J, Ethan S, Finn, Ian, Jess, Joaquin B, Joaquin V, Julian, Kadyn, Niels, Sami, Sol, Ty  (5 full Teams!!!)

Annie, Brody, Charlie, Dana, Grace, Kalea, Kylee, Lexie, Melanie, Olivia, Peyton, Sayani, Sela, Vail, Vanessa, Victoria (4 full teams!!)

The following athletes are running in the 4×400

Bennett, Brody, Dana, Kylee, Melanie, Melina, Olivia, Paige (2 full teams!)

Asher, Chance, Eli, Ethan S, Henry, Josiah, Ramsey, Ty, Tyler (2 full teams +1!)

 

Get ready to have some fun, cheer loudly, and see some great competition.

Warmly,

Coach Carol

GOOOOO Bantams!

Bantams- So Cal Youth Invitational Meet April 8th and 9th – please read

April 8th and 9th is the Southern California Youth Invitational
held at Ventura High School

This meet is a “can’t miss” experience for all athletes.  It is NOT an “elite only” meet, all athletes can attend and it is a great chance for all of our athletes to set PR’s.  There are over 2,000 athletes of all levels that participate and most athletes are placed in heats with competitors very close to their own ability, which means great competition.  Great competition usually equates to great performances!  It gives our athletes a chance to see what a major high school invitational is like.

It is a two day meet and athletes can choose up to 3 events.

Bantam Oxnard meet recap

Happy Sunday Bantams and Parents,

Wow, wow, WOW another great meet with this awesome Bantam team!

Parents:

Thank you again for sharing your athletes with us.  They are an incredible group of kids!

Thank for labeling clothes.  I have a few sweatshirts to return on Monday and they all have names on them!  I do have a few water bottles that are nameless and if they do not get claimed soon, I will put them into the Tigres lost and found.

Thank you for the early morning pre meet emails when athletes will not make it and we need to rearrange the relay teams.

I am sorry to those who drove to Channel Islands High before Oxnard high and I thank your kids for understanding when I could not get them into the relays.

On that note, we need multiples of 4 to make even relay teams and that does not happen every meet.  Therefore, we have some athletes listed as alternates and sometimes we are unable to get them on a team.  Please know that these athletes get first priority for relay teams at the next meet.

Bantams:

Again, you rocked it!

Many, impressive PRs were set across the board!

Bantams were out there supporting each other and it is so fun to watch friendships develop and grow!

Out of the 10 events that Bantams participate in, on the girls side, we took first (and often 2 and 3rd too) in 9 of 10 events!!!

The wins are fun, the PRs are great, and my favorite is the smiles on the faces of your kids when they come and find me and share their accomplishments!

Looking forward to another great week!

Please keep your eyes out for another email soon regarding the So Cal Youth Invitational on April 8th and 9th

Cheers,

Coach Carol

GOOOOOOO Bantams!!!!!

Bantams Oxnard Meet and Team Update

Hi Bantams and Parents

This Saturday we will be competing against the Oxnard Stars At Oxnard High School.

Directions can be found on the Tigres home page.

Meet start time is 8:30

Please have your athletes on the field for stickers and pre meet meeting at 8:00.

 

Thank you to parents for getting your athletes to the meets on time.

With the exception of unexpected illnesses, we have had all athletes running the 4X100 in their teams, warmed up and ready well before third call!

Thank you for parents and athletes staying to the end of the meets and rocking our 4×400 teams.  We have had 5-6 4×400 teams each meet, which might be a Bantam record and is certainly impressing our coaches and the other team’s coaches!

We have also had a very impressive number of Bantams throwing shot-put and it is awesome watching the athletes expand their repertoires

The athletes’ energy and enthusiasm continue to be inspiring.

We are encouraging athletes to not wear their spikes during Monday and Wednesday practices because we are receiving a number of complaints about sore heels and feet.  If your athlete feels that they need to break in their spikes, we encourage them to come on specialty days and wear the spikes for a short period of time and/or save the spikes for the meets.

 

We are missing event sign ups for the following athletes for this Saturday’s meet:

Makayla, Paige, Vail, Anthony, Fletcher, Joaquin B, Tyler S

Thank you all.

Warmly,

Coach Carol

Goooooo Bantams!!!!!
