Our next meet is the Southern California Invitational that takes place on April 14th and 15th at Moorpark High School.  This meet will have athletes from our entire conference along with the SCYTC.  Last year there were over 2,500 athletes competing in the meet.  There will be competition at every level for our athletes (this is not just an elite level meet).

We will have the sign up sheets at practice starting today and need to have our roster finalized by Wednesday after practice.  If you do not sign up for events before the end of Wednesday’s practice, you will not be allowed to compete.  Please see the meet schedule posted at http://tigres.anacapahosting.com/special-event-info/to determine what events you would like to sign up for.  Midgets may participate in up to 2 individual events, plus 1 relay, or 1 individual event plus 2 relays.  Last year, Saturday was finished by 5:00 and Sunday was finished by 2:00.

Because the meet is pre-seeded (meaning rosters are fixed before the meet), we are only going to be bringing 1 relay team for each event (1 boys 4×100 and 4x 400 team and 1 girls 4×100 and 4×400 team).  Typically at our regular meets, we have many relay teams, and when an athlete does not show up or can’t compete, we can make adjustments.  At this meet, it will not be possible to do this – I hope everyone understands.

At this point, there is no requirement to sign up for a volunteer shift, but we would truly appreciate if you would sign up for a volunteer spot on the following link: http://www.volunteerspot.com/login/entry/912345634573332010.  We do not have very many volunteer spots to fill and the more people we have sign up, the shorter the shifts will be.  Please look at the order of events and try to find a volunteer spot on the day of your athlete’s events.  If we do not get enough volunteers to sign up, we will have to start assigning shifts.

We are really looking forward to seeing our Midgets compete at this meet.  It is a great chance for our athletes to experience a large High School Invitational atmosphere.  Please have your athletes sign up for events as soon as possible.  If they will be unable to sign up for events before the end of practice on Wednesday, please email us their desired events.  Also if you have any questions or would like more information, please feel free to email us at mjhammel@roadrunner.com or call Matt at 650-678-3681.
