Uniform Return

For those of you that haven’t returned your CYO Track & Field Uniforms, please drop them to Carol Loffredo at 309 Tapestry Circle, Exton, PA.  Her house is very close to the DEHS Track.

Please put the cleaned uniform in a plastic or ziploc bag with your child’s name on it, and drop them in the bin which has been placed at the back of the house.

If this isn’t done by June 15, your deposit check will be cashed and you’ll be billed by CYO for the balance.  (The uniform costs SSPJ CYO more than the $50 deposit.)

Thanks so much to those that have returned the uniform and those that we saw at the Green & Gold Family Meet yesterday – it was a really fun time.  Thanks to all the parents for your support and hopefully we’ll see you next year!

Thanks to the Bakers who have offered to grill up some burgers and hot dogs for us today for our Green & Gold Family Meet.  Bring your family friendly drinks and snacks to share and it should be a nice time after some fun runs.  We’ll start at 1:00 p.m. sharp today (Sunday 5/31) and the running part of the day will take less than an hour.

As a note, the rest rooms by the track won’t be open, the nearest ones are by the tennis courts.

As an extra reminder – please put the washed uniforms in plastic bag labelled with your child’s name to return today.  You’ll get your deposit check back and Carol can get these turned in and out of her house!

Practice will be short tonight (Thursday)

Hi All,

Practice will be a short one tonight (Thursday 5/28), please plan on picking up at around 6:15 p.m. tonight.  We’ll be working on relay hand-offs a bit along with good stretching in preparation for Saturday morning’s meet.

We’ll see many of you on Saturday and hopefully lots of you on Sunday.  We don’t have a rain date for the Sunday Green & Gold Family Relay event and the track will actually be closed the next week in readiness for refurbishing.  Watch this site Sunday for a cancellation note if the weather chooses not to cooperate.

Green & Gold Family Meet – Year End Event


We’d like to invite you and your family to our Green & Gold Family Meet and year end CYO Track & Field Celebration.  We invite all athletes and families from the subnovices and novice/minor/cadet teams.

Sunday, May 31

1:00 p.m.

Downingtown East High School Track

Please bring yourselves and maybe some family friendly beverages and snacks to share afterwards.  It’s a family meet, meaning that we hope mom and dad will get involved!


For the kids, it’ll be a battle between Coach Don’s Green team and Coach Julie’s Gold team in various fun relay events.  (We’ll divide up the teams onsite.)

They’ll be a race for younger siblings – a Tiny Tots 50m.  In addition, parents can get into the action with the “Parents 800m” – runners and walkers of all speeds and abilities are welcome to join in and see why the kids are occasionally tired and sore.

We’ll also hold multiple 4 x 100m adult relays to crown a Moms Team Champion, a Dads Team Champion, and a Coaches Challenge Champion.  The Coaches won last year, but it’s a hotly contested event every year.


This will be the perfect opportunity to return your uniform (washed and in a bag) and get your deposit back.  Subnovices – the t-shirts are yours, you don’t have to return it.

After the races, we’ll have a little snack if people bring anything to nibble on and take the opportunity to thank the many people that help make this program work.  We hope to see you then!
