Gremlins – Sunday picnic reminder

Hi Families,

We are looking forward to our end of the season picnic this Sunday, May 6th! We will be at the VUSD service center off of Stanley from 12:00-3:00. Tigres is providing pizza and Gremlins are being asked to provide enough non-water drinks for 12. We have team pictures, ribbons, and a gift to give to the athletes.

We really hope to see you there!


Gremlin info – Picnic and VCYTC Championship athletes

Hi Gremlin families!

I cannot believe how quickly the 2018 season has flown by! Yesterday was the last meet for many of our athletes, and I was so impressed with their focus in their events, and support for their teammates! Watching their progress on the track and their friendships develop throughout the season has been so rewarding.

We hope that you put the May 6th date for the Tigres picnic on your calendar! Gremlins are being asked to bring enough non-water drinks for 12 people. The other age groups are bringing sides and desserts, and Tigres is providing pizza. Lunch is 12:00-1:00, and after lunch and announcements, we will break into our smaller age groups.

Congratulations to the 12 athletes that are representing our Gremlins at the VCYTC Championships in Moorpark on May 5th!

Gremlins – help needed for Thursday

Hi Families,

Just a reminder that we are having our “fun” practice tomorrow at Buena! If I could have 6 parents (or more!) bring 100ish water balloons the kids would absolutely love it!! Please email me tonight,, if you can help!



Gremlins – upcoming week!

What a fantastic (and crazy late!) meet on Saturday!! I hope your Gremlins all were able to crash as soon as they got home! We have some more adventure on the horizon for this week. This Thursday will be our “fun” practice; please be ready for some hyper Gremlins in the car on the way home! Practice should end close to 6:00 on both days this week. We also have a Tigres picnic in planning, but more on this as we have finalized details.

Unfortunately for most of our athletes this will be their final week of practice, and Saturday’s meet (check in time at 8:00 at Oxnard HS) will be their last meet for the 2018 season. We do have athletes moving on to the Conference Championship Meet on May 5th. Preliminary standings are currently up on (accessible under Top Marks at the bottom of the Meet Results page on our website). Please refer to the previous information on the Tigres website regarding the final meets.

I completely understand that the end of season can be confusing, so feel free to ask if you have any questions.

See you soon,


Gremlins – meet today

Hi All,

Quick reminder that we are checking in today at 2:30 for our meet. We are going to go down to the field almost immediately to start warming up for the long jump, so please try to be on time if you have a long jumper (all but 4 kids LOL!)

The evening weather will be cool (especially if your athlete is running the 800 or the 200) so please bring warm clothing for tonight.

See you soon!



Gremlins – Pictures at Arroyo TODAY

Just a quick reminder that our pictures and practice will be at Arroyo Verde today. We are scheduled to take pictures at 4:30, so please have your athlete arrive early and in uniform so we can arrange the kids.

Thanks and see you soon!


Gremlins – Location change and Picture day

Hi Families,

Due to a meet tomorrow at Buena, the location of our practice has changed to Arroyo Verde. YES, we are still having PICTURE DAY! Pictures are at 4:30 at the concrete steps on the left hand side of the park (near the back). Parking in that upper lot will probably be easiest. Please be on time (closer to 4:25) and have your athlete in their Tigres running uniform. If they wear a shirt under their singlet, try to have it be either white or black.

Thanks so much!


Gremlins – meet time and end of season information

Hello All,

Just a quick note that Saturday’s start time has shifted to 3:00, so we will meet at 2:30 in the stands. Also, please read the important information on the final season meets that is posted on the Tigres website. If you have any questions, email me at

See you tomorrow,


Gremlins – Picture day and upcoming week

Hi Gremlin Families,

What a fun meet we had yesterday! Your athletes are amazing, and I am so proud of their performances and their behavior. As we are coming towards the end of our season, I would love to have more time with them, so please anticipate that practice will be finishing closer to 6:00. Also this week, we have our team picture day at 4:30 on Thursday. Please be on time, have your athlete in their running uniform, and if they wear an undershirt it would be great if it was black or white for continuity.

Our meet on Saturday is our final “regular” meet! Saturday will have a start time of 3:00 pm, so please plan on being there at 2:30 pm. This is the last week for your athletes to try a new event!

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask.

See you soon,


Gremlins – meet tomorrow!

Hi Gremlin families,

Just a quick reminder that we are meeting at 8:00 at Buena tomorrow where we will be hosting the Ojai Roadrunners. We will be heading down to long jump early, so if your athlete is a jumper (aka 95% of them!), please try to arrive on time. Ojai has a small team, so I am anticipating a fun and fast paced meet. Knowing our unpredictable weather, please plan and pack accordingly with water, snacks, sunscreen, and warm clothes.

See you soon,
