Greetings!
As we get closer to our start, please make sure you have completed all steps for registration. We are still open for athletes until our roster is full. We are 90% full. It is very important that you attend the parent orientation for updates on practice sites, and competitions

Steps to complete:
1) All registration forms completed
2) New athletes must upload or bring a copy of their birth document to the parent orientation on Feb. 8th
3) Complete the payment
4) Order uniform

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. This is why it is very important for you to attend the Parent Orientation on February 8th.

Coaches Meeting Feb 5th 8:30am -We will be hosting a Coaches training orientation at the Santa Clarita sports Complex for all new and returning coaches. If you are interesting in helping please try to come. You can sign up to
Parent Orientation- Feb 8th - 5:30 pm & 7:00 pm ( Sub and Gremlins 5 to 8 year olds, or 7:00pm. all others. - The Centre at Santa Clarita Sorts Complex

First Practice - Feb 12th - 8:00 am - 9:30 am - Castaic High School Track

It has been 2 years since we have had a full program.
Due to to not having our seasons we are in need of many new coaches! Track and Field is a very unique sport and needs many different area's of coaching events! We can train you and help guide you in any one of those area's. We need many head coaches and assistant coaches. No experience needed, just a willingness to learn and care for the athletes! Storm is a family of many different backgrounds! If you would like to coach for our great organization, please contact Coach Elaine at coachelaine@runstorm.org. You can click on the "document" link on our website to send in your coaches application and complete your background check. We are an all volunteer organization and completely rely on volunteers to make us great!!

Practice Facilities
Many have been asking about our practice locations this year due to the Lacrosse team at most schools bumping us from the track. We have diligently been working on securing practice days at all of the 7 local high schools and COC. We are working on Saturday's at Canyon High or Castaic High and 1 day a week at COC . I have contacted all 7 schools to try to secure days. Here is the results I have gotten so far for practice days. We do hope that most of our Saturday's will be at either Castaic or Canyon High but we are actively trying to get more practice days. For now have Tuesday practice secured at COC and 2 nights at Castaic High ( Monday and Wednesday or Thursday) We ask you attend at least 2 practices per week!
Please understand that this may change and we may not get our permit until late January! We will send dates and locations as soon as they ae confirmed! For now, here are tentative dates to start the season!

Canyon High School All Comers Meet
Canyon High is hosting a All-Comers Meet at their school on Feb 5th . It is open to everyone. This is not a Storm event, but you can attend in your Storm uniform if you would like to sign up. Here is the flyer and info if you are interested in attending!

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

Please click the following button to register for the 2020 Track & Field Program. Please note that the terms and conditions to registration belong to the Valley Youth Conference. This form is an exact electronic copy of the paperwork we had last year which was on paper.
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.

The following items are acceptable:
1. Birth Certificate.
2. Photocopy of Birth Certificate.
3. Military Birth Certificate.
4. Passport.
5. Foreign Birth Document or Green Card.
