Scholastic Awards
In an effort to emphasize the importance of maintaining scholastic ability in conjunction with athletic ability, the Santa Clarita Track Club, Inc. in cooperation with local school districts, awards a Scholastic Achievement Medal to all active athletes that maintain a 'B+' (3.5) grade point average or better during the season. The medal is engraved with the student's name, year and symbol of the sport in which he/she is participating. A special President's Award Medal is presented to players that maintain straight A's. 
The Deadline for turning in the form is April 12, 2017   
Relay Expectations
Many parents are asking how relays are determined, here is a brief description on how this is done. There will be some very disappointed athletes at the meet if your child signs up and does not stay, or arrive on time for their team! Not every athlete will get to be on a relay each week but the coaches will try to give an opportunity to those who want to try.  

It is very important to the team that if your athlete does sign up for a 4X100 relay, that they are at the meet and checked in before 8:30 am so the coaches can assemble the teams. All 4X400 meter relay athlete must check in with coaches before the 200 meter race at the meet. If your child is signed up for a relay and does not show up or is late, it will effect every other relay runner, and disappoint those who can not compete. Please insure they stay for the duration of the meet if they are running the 4X400 relay at the end of the day!  

This is the only event that we are strict on signing up for. Please don't sign up for any relay if your athlete can not compete in the event, and be at the meet by 8:30 am.

Criteria for relay team assignment. Be on time!!
1) coaches discretion  
2) attending practice 
3) able to hand off smoothly 
4) Time in the 100 or 400 at a meet 

All of this is considered when coaches put together their teams (A-Team, B-Team, C-Team, etc...). 

If you have any questions about this please speak with your age group Coach or Coach Elaine
