Practice will begin on
February 11, 2017

Practice is going well and the athletes are stating to be more comfortable! Remember the more they can attend the faster they will progress. 

Please be on time to pick up you children after practice. It is very cold and the coaches need to get home with their families too! Parents should arrive no later than
7:30, and Gremlin parents should already be there. 
If you have not brought your birth certificate WE NEED IT NOW!! 

Some of the athletes will start training with spikes, here is a general guideline for them. Gremlins can not run in spikes. Please talk to your child about the dangers of hurting another athlete with the sharp spikes.  

Never come with spike shoes on. Coaches will tell them when to put them on. 

All spikes that came with the shoes are the incorrect size and shape for our track. THEY MUST BE CHANGED. I have the correct 3/16 needle spikes needed. the cost is $3.00 per set. Please bring exact change.

Always take them off before cool down.

Parents please try to arrive 15 minutes early for pick up, in case practice ends early.

If it is raining practice is canceled. However we will practice in a light sprinkle. This makes it tricky, many times it is not raining at the track when it's raining at home. Do not drop off your athlete if there is a chance for a canceled practice, please stick around.

Please be sure to text STORMTF to 41411 to be added to our urgent alert system, in the event of a canceled practice, we will send a group text alert out telling parents to pick up their athlete, or type "follow @stormtrackclub" to 40404
 Important Practice Information 
Parents during practice after the athletes start drills all parents and siblings need to leave the track and field. We need all of the lanes and field to conduct practice. All coaches and helpers have been background checked to be with the athletes. You are welcome to walk the perimeter of the track or wait out side the fence. 
Please do not allow siblings to stay unattended at the track or to play on the pole volt pits. The coaches want to focus on your athletes and unattended children are a very big distraction. All Gremlin parent should stay close to the track in case they are needed. 
Please do not yell at your athletes over the fence as this may be different instructions than the coaches have given. During a practice there is a time of fast running and some of recovery. We want the athletes to focus on what has been instructed by the Coaches.
Please feel free to talk to us before or after practice if you have any questions. I know this is very new for many and I want you to enjoy the time on Storm!!

Calendar on Website
There is a calendar on our web site that has most of the practice and meet info on it. It is tentative and will be updated weekly. The schools some times make changes so please remember it is subject to change but we will try to keep it updated as much as possible every week.  
Jelly Beans & Jolly Ranchers
Jelly Beans Parents we ask that you bring 2 bags of jelly beans or Jolly Ranchers.
At the end of each practice we give the kids a few jelly beans as a treat. For the kids with braces, we give them a Jolly Rancher. The kids must be heading out the gate in order to get them.  
Twenty-Five Score Cards
STORM's first Fundraiser is here! The 25 Score Card is good at over 1000 merchants throughout SCV and LA including Jersey Mike's, Vincenzo's, Buca Di Beppo, Coldstone, Mountasia, Menchies, Color Me Mine, Office Max and so many more plus three's a Mobil app you can download with it too!

The cards will be $20 each! We are asking that each family be responsible for 2 cards at least (more if you can) can keep one for the family, sell both off, give them away to clients. Whatever is good for your family but we are requiring 2 cards per household.

There will be a Board Member at most practices with cards available and Team Roster to confirm your participation throughout the month of March.
