This week, at practice, the Youth and Intermediate team will be signing up for the practice meet events.  On Saturday, Tigres will be having our start of the season practice meet which is intended to help the parent volunteers learn their volunteer jobs, familiarize the athletes with the flow and procedures of a meet and work out any kinks before the official meets start.  It will only be Tigres athletes competing and there will only be a subset of events the Youth and Intermediate team will be allowed to compete in.  The events are:

  • Hurdles (if you have been cleared to participate by the hurdle coaching team)
  • 1600 meters
  • 400 meters
  • 200 meters
  • High Jump

Athletes can choose up to 3 events for this meet. However, of those 3 events, they can choose a maximum of two running events (hurdles are considered a running event). High jump will be the only field event offered to the youth and intermediate age group. High jumpers must be cleared to compete by the high jump coaches prior to signing up.

So, here are some reminders for this coming week:

  • It’s going to be cold again all week, so please bring sweats and warm clothes!
  • Hopefully this will be the last week we have to make reminder announcements about goal sheets – PLEASE TURN THEM IN!!!
  • Please take advantage of the specialty practices on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.  The first session is from 4:30-5:15 and the second session is from 5:15-6:00.  If athletes attend those specialty practices, they must participate in a session and not just be hanging around on the field.

Looking forward to a great week of practice!
