Hello Parents –

We have our practice track meet this upcoming Saturday, March 3rd.  The purpose of the practice meet is to help the volunteers learn their meet responsibilities and allow the athletes to become familiar with the flow of a track meet.  Only Tigres are participating in this practice meet.  Because it is practice only, each age group will be able to participate in a limited number of events.  For Bantams, these events are the following:

  • 4x100m relay
  • 1600m
  • 400m
  • 100m
  • Long Jump

For this meet, athletes can sign up for a maximum of three events, with no more than two running events.  The only field event available to Bantam athletes in this meet is the long jump.  If your athlete plans to participate in the long jump, I would strongly recommend that they attend at least one of the long jump specialty practices this week (Thursday or Friday, see https://www.venturatigres.org/practice/) to get familiar with the long jump.  As with any other event, it’s always a good idea to practice an event first before trying it at a meet.

There will be a sign up sheet available at practice Monday and Wednesday for athletes to sign up for their events this weekend.  Please encourage your athlete to sign up for their own events, as this will help them to remember their events for this weekend.  If your athlete is not at practice this week, you can email me his/her events for this weekend.

Please feel free to call/text or email me with any questions or concerns.

Looking forward to this weekend!

Coach Kevin (805-797-5774; bantams@venturatigres.org)
