Good Afternoon Springers' Athletes and Parents,

 

  • Registration will take place at the meet. No need to do anything ahead of time. Springers is covering the entry fee for this meet.
  • Coach Alex will be at the meet. One of the reasons we wanted you to complete the Google Form (see my previous email) is so we have an athlete count and can send another coach/more support if need be.
  • Bring a water bottle and sunscreen! We will have a water jug for athletes to refill their water bottles with. We all know how hot Grand Junction is this time of year so be sure your athlete is rested and hydrated before the meet. 

  • If your athlete is planning to compete in the Colorado State Junior Olympic Track Meet in Denver this weekend, he/she must obtain a USATF number by tonight to allow time to have his/her birth certificate verified. At this point, we cannot ensure that your athlete's age will be verified in time to compete. For multi events, our deadline is TODAY June 18. For single events, the deadline is WEDNESDAY, June 20.  

    • Here are the directions again (they are also on the website):

    • Make sure that you send your athlete to Pole Vault practice with Coach Arnold on Thursday from 4-6pm if he/she is interested (13+). This is a great opportunity to get some experience in this awesome event!

    • Our home track meet is coming up fast- It is on Saturday, June 30 in the morning. Please see the attached flyer for details. Please help us by:
      1. Spreading the word
      2. Planning to compete yourself! This year, Independence Run and Hike is sponsoring a fast mile before the meet with cash prizes for the top three women and men. Also, you are welcome to participate in any of the other events 😊. This is a great way to relive your track glory days.
      3. Helping us fund-raise! This meet is our one and only fundraiser for the season. The way we make money is through our $50 corporate relay sponsors. If this is something you're able to help us with, or you know of a company who would like to participate, please let us know. We are in the process of obtaining our 501C3 status.
    • Registration for our home meet will take place DURING PRACTICE on Thursday, June 28. Please send your child to practice this day so we can get him/her registered. If this isn't possible, don't worry! We will have registration available on the day of the event as well. 

    Thank you!

    Coach Abbey
