"Tigres vision is to provide high quality track and field programs that enhance children's lives"
Registration for 2016 has ended, and we are no longer accepting new athletes. We recommend adding yourself to the signup notifications for next season if you were not able to get in this year. You can get on the list here: http://eepurl.com/bKcjNv
We are sad to learn about the passing of Laurie Kearney, the mother of two former Tigres athletes, Lauren and Megan. As you can imagine, Laurie was a fixture at both practices and meets. As a volunteer, Laurie was a huge help - as ribbon coordinator, she made sure all the athletes got their ribbons each week after a meet.
The Tigres have established a scholarship fund in Laurie's memory. The Kearney Memorial Scholarship Fund will provide scholarship assistance to prospective Ventura County athletes who wouldn't otherwise have the means to participate.
To learn more or if you would like to contribute to the fund please visit the Ventura Tigres website at this URL: https://www.venturatigres.org/kearney-memorial-scholarship-fund/
Hello Tigres Families,
If you missed our Picnic, today from 5:00-6:00, at Buena, will be the last day to pick up your athlete's picture and gift.
If anyone has loud, portable music for the cheer station tomorrow morning, please bring it!
Hope to see as many Tigres tomorrow as possible. This could be $3000 for Tigres and we need everyone's help.
Hello Again Tigres Family!
I bet you thought that the e-mails ended with the season! Here's a great opportunity to get together your fellow athletes and families, have some fun motivating the marathon runners, and try to help Tigres to win a share of $5,000:
The Tigres are participating in this year's 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! With over 300 athletes, we have the potential to have a lot of loud people at our station. Here's the details:
- Our location is 7151 N. Ventura Ave
From Seaward Ave.
Get on the 101 N
Get on freeway CA-33 N
Take exit Stanley Ave.
Turn right onto Stanley Ave.
Turn left on N. Ventura Ave.
The location will be about 4 miles up this road.
- Please be there at 6:00 am and we should be done around 11:00
- North Bound Ventura Avenue should be open to get to the station.
- 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 (cowbells, etc -- Hey Gremlins, I know what you got in your goodie bag at the picnic!)
- If someone can bring a portable sound station, please do so
- Brings snack/drinks, and sunscreen.
- For more information, visit http://www.mountains2beachmarathon.com/community-challenge/
- See photos below for the location.
Also, for those of you who wish to still purchase raffle tickets for the Walden Mountains2Beach Surfboard, you can do so at Saturday's Marathon Expo at the Anacapa Hall at the Ventura Fairgrounds from 10:00AM to 7:00PM, or anytime Sunday at the finish area of the Marathon (dead end of Shoreline Drive) before 1:00PM.
Hope to see you Sunday!
