Track & Field 2023

Feb 20, 2023

Greetings Alan,

As we enter the second week of practice we are very proud of all of the athletes that have joined, and practice is going well. Just a reminder that there is NO practice at Castaic High today due to Presidents day, only approved Distance athletes will still be at Central Park! Also make sure your athletes has warm ups on, and water with them at all practices.

We have also noticed that many do not have on the proper running shoes. Please make sure you have them this week! We can not allow them to continue to practice on the track without them as they can be injured.

We are in need of Sub-Gremlin parents to help on the field during practice. We have a record number of 25, athletes and although we do have 4 coaches we need help keeping them in line while they are on the track. It is very easy and the Coaches will handle the work out. This will allow the coaches to teach the track elements and keep all athletes safely in order. This is most likely the first sport experience for our little ones and we want to make it fun for all. Please come out and help, it is so fun!!

If you ordered from our online store the items will be arriving in about 3 weeks before the first meet!

We are closing our registration Saturday Feb 25th, please make sure all birth documents and payments are made by this date. We have to certify our roster and all athletes not complete will be dropped by our league!

Training Shoes and Spike Shoes

A Training shoe is a shoe that is specially used for running! All athlete's need to have these to train at practice and run at all meets! You can buy them at most sports store and on line, We will have Fleet Feet back soon also. Please see coach Elaine if you need help finding them. Many will want to also have a pair of Spike racing shoes or racing flats . They are not mandatory but recommended for athletes 9 and up. Spikes are a shoe that has a medal spike in the bottom of the shoe to help grip the track. A racing flat is a shoe that is very light and has built in bottoms that are not sharp. Coaches will be allowing them at sprint practices and field event practices starting this week. Athletes should bring them in a bag marked with their name, as many will have the same shoes and bags. They will be told when to put them on, please do not send them to practice with only the spike shoes. There are different sizes of the spikes and our schools only allow 3/16 inch pyramid shaped spikes. You will not be allowed to use the spikes that come with the shoes as they are too long. I will have spikes for sell starting Saturday at the table. I also have some loaner used shoes that will be out on Saturday if your athletes would like to try them. These are free to use for the season, but I will not have all sizes.

Jelly Beans

Jelly Beans/Jolly Ranchers - We offer these at the end of every practice. We ask each family to donate 2 large packages of either of these items. We will also need parents to volunteer to put the jelly beans in a individual baggies, and help hand out at the end of each practice. The athletes love this and it helps replace the glycogen used during practice and puts a smile on their face. You can bring this to any practice !

We offer this to all athletes, if you would like sibling to take one please bring extra so that we make sure we have plenty every day!!

Please visit our 2023 Track and field sign up page on our website

Our Track and Field Sign Up Page
Track & Field is a competitive sport, all athletes must attend at least three meets on Saturday, to be on the team. There will be no practice only athletes.

We have reached the point that we just can no longer accept athletes who only want to practice on our team, that takes away our coaches time in training our athletes who do compete, so our policy is that we do not accept practice only athletes. Saturday Meets are mandatory
