Regular Season is over, on to CHAMPIONSHIP Season!

There is at least one Championship for your athlete left – Conference JV Finals West at Buena on Saturday 4/23. Athletes may have also qualified for the Varsity finals which will be held on Saturday, 4/30. I have separately emailed the Varsity qualifiers.  Practices will continue as normal this week.  Below is a description of the JV finals, Varsity finals, and Co-Conference meets so as to help with any confusion regarding the events.

JV finals: April 23 at Buena High School
The JV finals are open to all athletes. In order to participate in an event in the JV finals the athlete needs
1) have participated in that event at least once during the regular season (except for relays, an athlete
need not have competed in a relay during the regular season to compete in a relay at conference finals).
2) have NOT qualified for that event in the Varsity Finals. If an athlete qualifies for an event at the
Varsity Finals, they can NOT participate in that event at the JV finals. Also, the same event limit applies
at the Varsity Finals (maximum of 4 events, a maximum of 3 running events, and 4×400 is excluded from
the total).

Varsity Finals April 30 at Moorpark
 The Varsity Finals are for the athletes that run the fastest, jump the farthest and highest and put the shot the furthest. For each event in each age/gender group the top athletes in the conference qualify for the championships. For sprints and field events the top 9 athletes qualify. For the distance events (800,1600, and 3200) the top 12 athletes qualify.

Each club gets to send 1 relay team per age/gender group for each relay (4×100 and 4×400). A relay team member need not have run on any relay or competed with the other members of any relay prior to the Varsity Finals meet.

Note that each club gets to send relay teams for EVERY age/gender group including intermediates. A relay team counts as an intermediate team if it has one intermediate member. Therefore, a youth and intermediate age group, gets to send a youth team and an intermediate team as long as at least one intermediate athlete participates.
There is no event limit at the Varsity Finals; an athlete can compete in all of the events for which they qualify.

Co-Conference Championships May 14:
Qualification at co-conference is based on the results from the Varsity Finals. For laned events and field events the top 5 athletes from VCYTC (our conference) and the top 4 SCYTFC qualify. For non-laned running events the top 8 from each conference qualify. If an athlete is not available to participate, they will take the next best athlete.
