Uniforms - We will be placing the final order for Uniforms this week. If you have not ordered yet please do so asap. the 2nd order of uniforms will arrive in late February. We have not changed uniforms, so if yours still fit, you do not need to order a new one. I will be ordering a few extra so that you can switch your size if needed, but because we are trying to keep our cost down , we do not want to order a lot of extra uniforms.

Covid Concerns- As you all know, things change daily with Covid concerns. We want to assure you that we will follow all L.A. County Department of Heath, and all William S. Hart rules for youth sports, We have been following safely for 2 years and have not experienced any cases or out breaks. We will have the most updated information on our website by February 8th.

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

The payment option is a separate option.
Uniform purchase is also a separate option. (Every athlete must compete in a uniform, but you are not required to buy a new one every year, if your uniform from last year or cross country is still good you may use that one, if your child has out grown it, you might want to purchase a new one).
New athletes we must have a copy of the proof of age (see below).

A proof of age document must be uploaded using the form on the runstorm.org website for each athlete that is New to the club. If you competed in 2021 Track & Field or 2021 Cross Country for Storm we have your proof of age document still on file.
