Hi 8U Families:

Tomorrow is the last meet of the season for many of our 8U athletes. For our family, the season always feels slow at the beginning and then it’s over before we know it. The last meet is bittersweet- while I’m sure everyone will be happy to have their Saturdays back, there is also sadness to say goodbye to track and all the positive energy and competition that comes with it. I hope all of your kids had a great experience and will sign up again next year.

In terms of logistics for tomorrow, the meet start time is at 8:30. Like last week, I ask you to please get your athletes to the stands at Buena by 7:45 so we can get the long jump started as soon as possible. Most of the kids participate in long jump and that event alone can slow down the entire meet so we appreciate your help getting this going first thing in the morning.

I also wanted to let you know that the Junior Varsity meet involves 5 conference teams so it will be a very long day. Please plan accordingly by bringing lots of food and water and applying sunscreen. Also, because there are so many athletes participating, they will be waiting in the stands for their events rather than hanging out in the field. Please help the coaches by knowing what event your child is doing and listening for the call for that event.

Please text me if you have any questions, and thanks again for your support in making this a great season. I look forward to celebrating with your families at the end of season picnic on Sunday, May 15 from 12:00-3:00 pm at Buena High School.


Coach Mike
