Reminders

We need parents assistance for the success of this great program. Please help in any way you can.

  • Put your name on everything you bring to practices and meets.
  • Remember to dress warmly for practice, with a hat, gloves and many layers (base layer, long sleeve shirt, sweatshirt, sweatpants).
  • Eat a good breakfast the morning of every race (good choices are eggs, bagels, oatmeal, multi-grain cereal–don’t forget orange juice, water and minimum amount of milk. Milk tends to not settle well in the stomach).
  • Bring water and food to meets.
  • Wear no jewelry when you run.
  • Saturday afternoon Track Meets can last until 4 PM, perhaps longer.

NOTE: On occasion, track meets are not postponed until starting time. This means you may not find out about postponements until you arrive at the meet.

Strive for the Corpus Christi Track & Field Team Awards:
