Track Notes, April 10, 2015

Tomorrow is the Metamora Invite ... we have limited entries for this meet so not every athlete will be participating.  Every healthy athlete available should participate in Tuesday's meets.  All team members are expected to be at the meet unless they have been excused by Coach Neisler or myself.

Some reminders about meet protocol ... if you plan to take your child home from the meet, there is a sign out sheet at the team camp.     It can be very hard to remember who said they were riding home with a parent when you are at a meet trying to keep up with 30 athletes.  We are responsible for getting your child to and from the meet and we cannot leave without knowing all athletes are accounted for.  Also please remember that athletes are not allowed to ride home with anyone other than their own parent unless I have a note, text or e-mail stating it is ok for them to do so.  Finally,  the athletes are asked to stay for the entire meet, especially on weekends when there is no school the next day, to support their teammates.   Coach and I will make exceptions to this when asked to do so for family obligations or an special event.  Track meets are made up of individual events but there are no team sports where athletes can leave in the middle of competition for convenience purposes.  These reminders are just so all our new members know what the expectations for the athletes are.  Thanks for helping us build/support this team!  Our parents are terrific and are very much appreciated!

Meet information is attached.  Athletes should be at school by 7:30a tomorrow morning for the bus. Weather looks nice ... remember water, snacks and money for food.  A long sleeve t-shirt may help to keep sun off the athletes while they are waiting/warmimg up for their events.

Team members ... please forward this to teammates who are not on the distribution list.

Please let me know if you have questions.  I will forward assignments later today.  Thanks!

Attached are tomorrow's event assignments.

Tuesday we are split with a meet at Bloomington High School and another at Olympia High School. We hope to have all healthy athletes involved.  There will be a bus to Oly but there is NO bus to Bloomington HS.  I will try to get assignments out as soon as possible, hopefully late Sunday,  so you can plan to get the younger athlete to BHS if they are assigned there.  They are allowed to ride with another student only with permission of their parent.  I can give a ride to up to 6 athletes if needed.
