Bantams- Picture Day on Wednesday

Team pictures will be taken during practice time on Wednesday.  Please be sure to wear uniforms to practice – uniform top, black shorts.  If athletes would like to wear a shirt under their singlet, please make it white or black.


Bantams- end of season planning info

I am so incredibly proud of all of our athletes for the performances, their support of each other, and their incredible attitudes this weekend. Your Bantam coaches are a lucky crew!!


I cannot believe it, but we only have two regular meets left before we start the Championship meets.


  • April 20th and 27th are our final regular meets (both home meets!).
  • May 4th is the Conference Finals (open to all athletes). This will be the last meet for many of our athletes.
  • May 11th is the Conference Championships (athletes must qualify during our regular season).
  • May 18th is the Co-Conference Championships (athletes must qualify through the Conference Championship meet on May 11th).


In order to qualify for the May 11th Conference Championships, an athlete needs to be in the Top 9 in the VCYTC in the 100, 200, 400, long jump, high jump, or shot put or in the Top 12 in the VCYTC in the 800 or 1600. Qualifying for the Conference Championships is an incredible achievement, and we really want to see as many of our athletes as possible be part of this meet.


Please look at the following link to see where the best opportunities are for each athlete. If qualifying is something that your athlete wants to achieve, then help guide them in choosing their events in the next two meets.


I am sure there will be lots of questions, so please do not hesitate to ask.


Thanks for all of the support,

Coach Kristin

Bantams – Invitational info

Hi Bantam families,


I am looking forward to a fun weekend at the Southern California Youth Invitational!


A few reminders:


  • The meet location is at Oxnard High School
  • The first Bantam events are the Boys long jump and Boys and Girls shot put. These events start at 8:30, and these athletes should arrive around 8:00 so they can get situated and warmed up before the start time. 
  • The first running Bantam event is the 100, but that follows both the 3000 (the 3000 should take about 1.25 – 1.5 hours) and the hurdles.
  • Please refer to the Invitational order of events for your arrival time (be certain to check the field event times). We expect parking to be tight so leave plenty of time to park and find the Tigres area for the athletes to sit. 
  • Coaches are not allowed on the field at the invitational, and there are no event stickers. Your athlete will just give their name at staging, and will be placed in their pre-seeded heat.
  • I am so excited to watch our incredible group of kids perform!
  • So Cal Youth Invitational 2019


Please feel free to call or text with any questions.

Bantams – So Cal Youth Invitational Sign-ups

Hi Bantam families,

What an awesome track meet our athletes had yesterday! We have so much fun watching them give it their all on the track, and love all the laughter and endless games of sticker ball between their events 🙂

This week we have the Southern California Youth Invitational at Oxnard High School. Last week I sent out a (really long LOL) email about the upcoming weekend. Typically, I like it when the athletes sign themselves up for their events, but since the Invitational takes place over both Saturday and Sunday, please have a conversation with them before they sign up.

2019 So Cal Youth Invitational

The MAX event number for this meet is 2 individual and 1 relay OR 1 individual and 2 relays. Unfortunately, the 4×400 is NOT free and all running and field events count towards their total.

If they are doing a relay, they MUST have their sign-ups completed by practice on Tuesday. If they are only signing up for individual events, their sign-ups MUST be in by the end of practice on Wednesday. The Invitational is a seeded meet which makes it unlike our normal dual meets, and there can be no additions made after practice on Wednesday.

Please feel free to email me ( or text me (805)766-7171 with their events or with any questions that you may have.

Thanks so much!

Coach Kristin







Bantams – Meet #4 @ Moorpark HS

Hi Bantam families,

Just some reminders for our meet tomorrow:

  • We are running with the Moorpark Striders tomorrow at Moorpark High School   4500 Tierra Rejada Rd. in Moorpark 
  • Please have your athletes ready to go and on the track by 8:00.
  • It looks like our weather may heat up a bit tomorrow so please send them with plenty of water, sunscreen, their labeled sweats, and healthy and easy to digest snacks. Water is allowed on the field, but all food must be kept in the stands.


  • Relay help: I am still looking for two girl runners that want to run the 4×400, I have six that signed up and need two more so we can run two girl teams. I am also looking for two more boys to run the 4×100.


We can’t wait to watch them run!

See you tomorrow,

Coach Kristin
