YOUTH/INTERMEDIATE – Thursday Specialty Practice Canceled

Due to a Buena track meet being rescheduled for tomorrow (Thursday), there will be no specialty practice.  We will resume specialty practice on Friday as normally scheduled.

Please do your best to get your workout in on your own according to the workout plan.  It would also be great to see as many Tigres out at the track tomorrow supporting the Buena track team!

If you have any questions, please email or call/text 650-678-3681.

YOUTH/INTERMEDIATE – Picture day is Today!!!!

Just a reminder that picture day is today!  The Y/I team will be taking our pictures at the start of practice so please do your best to be on time.  Also, remember to wear your Tigres uniform and avoid anything that isn’t black or white (shorts, t-shirts, hats, etc).

YOUTH/INTERMEDIATE – Ojai Meet Recap and Next Week

As the season goes on, PR’s are tougher and tougher to come by.  On Saturday, there were 177 individual attempts by our athletes and a whopping 47% resulted in a PR!!!  In fact, we had a few athletes that PR’d in every event they attempted!  It might not be a coincidence that all of those great performances happened to follow our best week of practice in a LONG time, with great attendance and really solid efforts in the workouts.  Let’s keep the momentum going and make this week even better.

We’re really looking forward to a great meet this weekend with a very competitive club coming to Buena and the meet taking place in the evening (3:00 start time).  There will be a post coming up shortly that describes the Championship meet schedule, but this is our last dual meet, so it’s a last chance to earn spots in the Conference Championship meet and the last chance to try a new event.  Let’s make Saturday a great meet by laying the foundation with a great week of practice, with as many athletes attending as many practices as possible.  We are especially looking forward to a great 4×400 from the Y/I team (our goal is 4 boy’s teams and 4 girl’s teams) under the lights!!!


YOUTH/INTERMEDIATE – Tomorrow’s (Thursday) specialty practice is canceled

Due to a track meet being hosted at Buena High School tomorrow, specialty practice will be canceled.  We will be back to our normal schedule for Friday’s specialty practice.  It would be great if distance runners could get in a run and sprinters could do some speed development (see the training plan for details).

Hope to see a big crowd at specialty practice on Friday!


What a fun couple of days watching some great performances.  We were definitely short handed with about half of our athletes not able to attend, but there were still some great performances and it sure seemed like the athletes had a great time.

Now on to the plea.  With Spring break, the DC trip for the 8th graders and some illnesses hopefully behind us, we have two more meets until the championship meets start.  That leaves three weeks of practice.  Three weeks to give everything our athletes have to get PR’s, earn positions on relay teams and fight for positions at the Conference Championships and Co-Conference Championships.  Three weeks of really solid practice and a couple of meets can make for some big improvements.

So, I’m making a plea from all of us coaches, to do everything athletes can to make as many practices as possible for the next three weeks.  We’re getting close to the end and we all really want to see each and every athlete do their best and reach their goals.  We won’t be having practice this Thursday due to a track meet at Buena, but it would be great to hear about teammates getting together and getting in workouts on their own.  You all have access to the training plan and know what to do.  Let’s make the next three weeks the best weeks of the season to set everyone up for a GREAT end of season!!!

Hope to see everyone this week!!!
