Important Information for November
October 25, 2017
|It's been a while since our last newsletter and this one will be relatively short. We want to inform all parents about in important information meeting that is coming up, and also to let you know about the start dates of our Track Rascal and Junior Development indoor programs.
Parent information leading
We're having a parent information meeting starting at 6:00 on November 7, 2017. All parents need to attend this meeting so we can let you know what is going on with the club this year. It is important that all families have at least one parent in attendance.
The meeting is scheduled near the end of our practices so we're asking parents to come a little bit earlier to attend the meeting and pick their children up. There will be pizza available and when athletes are finished their practice they can come to the meeting and join us for a bite to eat.
There will be a short presentation from various members of our club executives and some of our coaches. This is to let you know our expectations of families and to give you information about when we will be attending various meets and how you and your children can be involved.
We hope to see you there. The meeting will be in one of the meeting rooms on the mezzanine of the Tournament Capital Center.
Track Rascal Program
The first practice for Track Rascals will be on November 1, 2017, at 5:15 pm. Parents who have registered their children are asked to bring them inside the Tournament Capital Centre and go the far end of the track. Coach Dayl Dhaliwal will be there to meet you at 5:15.
We're not sure how the layout of track area will be changed, so you may have to look for a place to wait for the practice to end. Hopefully, this will be straightened out by the next practice.
Junior Development Program
The first training session for this 9-12-year-old group and those 13-year-olds who opted for the JD program will be on Tuesday, November 7. Practice starts at 4:30 pm and goes until 6:00 pm. Athletes are not to use any equipment (both ours and the city's) prior to the practice beginning.
Coach Miriam Dziakyk will be there shortly before 4:30 to bring out any equipment the group will be using that day. Please come over to say hello, and then stick around for the practice. There may be times when additional adult help is required. At the end of the practice, help returning our equipment to its storage locations is always appreciated.
Additional Help Required
We are looking for parent help on Sunday, Oct. 27 at 1:00 pm to help with putting new wheels on the high jump and pole vault mat covers. An hour of your time would be much appreciated. Please email Judy Armstrong (email@example.com) to let her know you can be there.
