Just a few quick reminders and announcements before the start of the 2018 season!
Coming up tomorrow Monday, February 5 at 7 pm is our parent meeting in the Buena High School Cafeteria at 5670 Telegraph Road. This meeting is helpful for all, not just if you are new to Tigres, as there are changes within the club and the conference every year. In addition to a general team presentation, head coaches from each age group will also go over the season and what to expect. A team apparel table with sample uniforms for you to see and select sizes will also be at the meeting.
For this parent meeting, due to space constraints, we ask if possible to leave your kids at home (if old enough or with alternative supervision). We understand if this is not possible, and rather you attend with your young children then not attend at all.
The first day of practice for the Gremlin age group will begin this Tuesday, February 6 at 4:30 pm at the Buena High School Track. Bantams, Midgets and the Youth/Intermediate teams will begin on Wednesday, February 7 at 4:30 pm also at the Buena High School Track.
All age groups will have two regular team practice days each week. There will also be opportunities to work on specific events and skills on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays.
The practice schedule has been posted https://www.venturatigres.org/practice/ but coaches will be emailing you all to let you know as well.
Ventura Tigres is part of the Ventura County Youth Track Conference, VCYTC. You can learn more at http://www.vcytc.org The conference requires us to verify the date of birth for all of our athletes, and to that end, if your athlete is new to Tigres this year and you have not provided a copy of a birth certificate yet, please do so before the first day of practice. There are several ways that you can do this:
- Email a photo of the birth certificate to Kim Prieto, Tigres registration coordinator at email@example.com
- Bring the birth certificate with you to the parent meeting tomorrow, February 5.
We understand that conflicts arise that prevent athletes from participating in Tigres after registration. If your athlete is unable to participate you have the following options:
- Full refunds of registration fees are available until the Parent Meeting on Monday, February 5.
- Partial refunds (50%) of fees are available from Tuesday, February 6 until Saturday, March 3.
- After March 3, we are unable to provide refunds.
We have a very long waiting list for participation in Tigres. Please inform us as soon as possible if you must cancel so that we can offer a place on the team to one of the many athletes eagerly awaiting a spot.
All athletes/parent email addresses have been added to email distribution lists for both club wide communication as well as appropriate age group/coach communication.
You can add other email addresses to the lists at any time by simply going to this page https://www.venturatigres.org/stay-updated/ and on the right side you will see the opt-in form to enter your email address – be sure to tick “General Tigres Alerts” as well as each applicable age group. This is the best way to ensure you don’t miss anything important.
