Happy Monday!

  • State Junior Olympic Meet 6/18-6/19: Registration for this meet is due no later than 9:00am on Wednesday, June 15 (the sooner the better!). Athletes must have a valid USATF number and have their age verified before registering for this meet. Please go to the meet page for more information.

  • Lincoln Park Track Meet 6/15: We will not have practice on Wednesday, June 15 because our team is participating in the Lincoln Park Track Meet at Stocker Stadium in Grand Junction (N 12th St, Grand Junction, CO 81501). It is not mandatory to go to this meet, but I highly encourage it especially for beginners. It's a great first meet.

About the meet:
  • Registration starts at 5:30PM and the meet starts at 6:00PM. Please plan to get your child to the track by 5:15PM.
  • You are responsible for getting your athlete to and from the meet. 
  • Springers will pay the fee for this meet :).
  • Please make sure your child wears his or her uniform to the meet.
    • Uniforms should ONLY be worn at meets, not at practice.
  • This meet is generally VERY hot. Please make sure your child hydrates all day Wednesday and that he or she brings a water bottle to the meet. Your child should also always have sweats ready in case it is cool (Colorado weather!).
  • This is a low-key meet (similar to a Hershey's Meet).
    • There will be a 50M "Diaper" Dash, 100M, 200M, 400M, 800M and 1,600M running events along with the STANDING long jump and softball throw. 
    • No blocks will be used.
  • Last year, they didn't time any events so I will do my best to get all of our athletes times and to post results!
There's a HIGH JUMP PRACTICE on Tuesday, June 14 from 4:00-5:30PM with Coach Risner.

POLE VAULT PRACTICE will take place during regular practice time on Thursday, June 16.

The Eagle Track Meet will be on Thursday, June 23. Details to follow.

Please start thinking about our home meet on Wednesday, July 6 (details below). We are looking for $50 relay sponsors. Further, we are in need of many volunteers for this meet so let me know if you are willing to help out.
