Tips

  1. Arrive at the meet location 1 (one) hour before the meet is scheduled to start. This allows the athletes time to get a rub down and warm up before the meet begins.
  2. Put your child’s name on all pieces of track equipment (e.g. clothing, shoes, bag, etc.)
  3. You can expect to be outside in various weather conditions from 8:00 am until as late as 8 or 9:00 pm. Bring items that will allow you and your child to be comfortable for the time period.
  4. Do not allow your child to drink sodas the day of a meet.
  5. On hot/sunny days keep your child out of the sun as much as possible, this will help reserve that much needed energy for their race or field event.
  6. Tents that are put up by the coaches are primarily for the athletes; parents make sure the athletes are sheltered first.
  7. Athletes need to keep their sweats (pants) on, when they are not performing their event, to keep their muscles warm. This will help prevent injuries (enhances their performance).
