April 13th and 14th is the Southern California Youth Invitational held this year at Oxnard High
This meet is a “can’t miss” experience for all athletes. It is NOT an “elite only” meet, all athletes can attend and it is a great chance for all of our athletes to set PR’s. There are over 2,000 athletes of all levels that participate and most athletes are placed in heats with competitors very close to their own ability, which means great competition. Great competition usually equates to great performances! It gives our athletes a chance to see what a major high school invitational is like.
It is a two day meet and athletes can choose up to 3 events. They can do up to 2 individual events (running and field events both count as individual events), plus one relay or they can do 2 relays and 1 individual event. They can also do less than 3 events if they choose. The 4X400 is NOT a free event at this meet and counts as a relay.
Event sign ups must be completed prior to the end of practice on Wednesday April 10th. Socal Youth Invitational meet is unlike our normal dual meets where athletes can be added on the spot or right up until the until the meet. Athletes must sign up prior to the event.
If your athlete is unable to get to practice before Wednesday to sign up, you can email the information to firstname.lastname@example.org or text to 805-320-6544 sign up your athlete.
