Hello 8U Gremlins! (We are transitioning the group name from Gremlins to 8U)Our practice meet is this Saturday, March 7th at the Buena Track. The event options are limited for this meet since the primary focus is training the volunteers. For this meet only 8U will be able to participate in 2 running events and Long Jump.Our running choices for this meet are:4X100, 400, 100

Our only field option for this meet is the Long Jump.

Parents, please help your 8U child with the following for all meets:  1) they should know what events they signed up to run (we will help try to make sure they are at events but it is their responsibility to know what they are running), and 2) after their race they should get off the field and go back to the 8U tent in the stands – this is their home base – this is where we look for them when it is time to stage for an event and walk them back on the track – if they aren’t there, we won’t go looking for them.

The order of running events is:




Field events will include:

Long Jump (8U usually go first at 8:30am so be on time!).

Arrival time: 8:00 sharp in the 8U tent in the stands to get race bibs and organize relays as needed

Start time: 8:30am 

Sign-ups will be on the clipboards at practice starting tomorrow. If your child in not going to attend the meet, please have him/her draw a line through his/her name. Please do not email me after Friday at noon to add your child to the roster for the meet.  If your child signs up for a relay, please make sure they have attended practice to work on this skill – if we don’t have a multiple of 4, we may be unable to run everyone in a relay – please know I will do my best to give everyone a chance.  Additionally, if your child signs up for a relay their other 3 teammates are counting on them to show up – if they can’t make it at the last minute, please let me know ASAP.

Go 8U Girls and Boys!
