Track & Field 2023

March 6, 2023

Greetings Alan,

All Practice is at Castaic High, including Distance

This week will be very exciting as we will have a Mock Meet,(time trial) on Saturday. This will be the first time the athletes will be timed and measured. This is also a training day, for you as parents to learn how to volunteer at our meets. The VYC is an all volunteer organization and we depend on all of you to make it great. We will be sending out a volunteer sign up link later this week so that you can sign up. We ask that all parents try at least on of these jobs this week. They are all very easy and you can lean on the spot. We volunteer to Host as many meets as possible, so that we do not have to travel as much, but we do need more help!! Please bring plenty of water for your athlete. All athletes should come in their Storm uniform!

Make up pictures will be on Saturday also from 8:15-9:15 only

Here is a list of the areas we need this Saturday:


Long Jump - record measured marks, measure marks, rake and clear sand

Shot Put- Record Measured throws , measure throws, return the shot put after throes (shagging)

Race Starter- Start each race with a starters postal ( great job for our law enforcement parents)

Finish line recorder- collect Tags from athletes and put them on the clip board for timers Help athletes get in their lanes

Tag pullers- pull tags off athletes at the end of the race or in staging

Data input - input race and field events at the timing table

Stagers/Escorts - Put athletes in order in the middle of the field and take to starting line for each race

Relay zone judges - help athletes on the track in their zone and report if they pass out of the zone

Set Up and Clean up - at the beginning and end of the race

Each week we will have different duties but after the mock meet you will be able to see each duty/ You can try to sign up at a time your athletes competes so that you can be near that area.

e are so excited for the Mock Meet. This will be the first time we will get times and marks for the athletes! It is also the first opportunity to volunteer and be a part of the action!
