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.

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!

10 rolls of paper towels
6 boxes of tissues
2 bottles of bleach
10 boxes of pet treats
8 dog collar
14 pet toys
3 packs of post its
2 packs of sharpies

The Bakers toured the dog area and there were many, many sweet dogs waiting to be adopted.  Thank you to all of you for your support.

Archdiocese Performance List

West Chester University Campus

Below please find the Archdiocese Performance List which shows the qualifiers for next Saturday’s Meet at West Chester University.  We will warm up on the field as a team at 9:00 a.m.

This is all that’s available for free – if you want to see the individual races you’ll need to buy the program at the meet for a couple bucks.  Tee shirts and food will also be available at the meet.  I’m not positive where we’ll set up shop for today but let’s aim for somewhere near the 50 yard line of the main grandstand.  If we’re there early and in big numbers (we should be) we should be able to carve ourselves out a bit of the grandstand.

Let’s remember that it’s quite an honor to participate in the meet.  This meet features the finest athletes from what is the largest and most organized youth track & field program in the country.  We’ve had years where we’ve sent just a handful of athletes, and we’re blessed now to send so much of our team.

Area Championships Sunday

Senior Girls Make A Good First Handoff And Win Their Penn Relays Heat

 

Our Area A Championship Meet is this Sunday at 12:45 p.m. at Plymouth Whitemarsh High School.  Please allow at least an hour to get there from Exton.  Google Maps says it’s really close and won’t take long to get there but it’s not telling the truth and traffic and construction can be brutal getting there.  Hopefully I’m wrong.

We’ve made just one change to a relay (novice boys 4 x 200m) but all of the rest should be the same as two weeks ago unless we make a change that day.

2015 Area A Meet Program

You’ll want to print the program and bring it if you want to follow along.

Tee-Shirts will be available for sale, and there is a snack bar with hot dogs and some other things.  Look for us in tents on the grass area behind the start/finish line.

Have a great weekend and we’ll see you there!
