Dear 2018 Track and Field Parents-
When you signed your child up for track, you agreed to be a timer (or do a similar job) at one of our meets this spring. We will be having six meets on Saturdays 9-11 am, with the first meet on April 7. The calendar and all the information you need, including copies of the emails you will receive over the course of he season, will be at our new website: http://www.longmeadowtrack.org
*Please* go to the website and submit your updated contact information--there is a form you will see on the home page. The roster information we have received is from Longmeadow Parks and Recreation, and if you are like me, you may not have updated your online profile in years. It could be that none of the telephone numbers we have for you are good. This is important in case we need to reach you in an emergency or if we are looking for you at the end of practice. This form also allows you to add a second email address (i.e., your spouse's) to our distribution list.
Our first practice is Tuesday, April 3, from 5 to 6 pm. You will receive uniforms at this practice.
We will be having a meeting with parents on March 29 at 7pm at the Greenwood dining room. The purpose of the meeting is to explain what we will be asking you to do at the meets, to describe briefly the program, and to answer any questions. I promise the meeting will be short and to the point—we will be done in 30 minutes.
You do not need to have any knowledge of track and field to be a timer. This meeting is not mandatory but it would be very helpful for you to attend, especially if you are new to the program.
If there are any parents who have some running or track and field background and who would like to do some coaching (one-time or more often) along with the high school students who will be coaching the kids, please attend the meeting or reach out to me individually.
Alex Grant, Longmeadow Youth Track Coordinator
