For Girls and Boys in Grades K-5
Wednesday April 24th from 5:30 – 7:30 at Kennedy High School
Saturday May 18th from 2:00 – 4:00 at Jefferson High School
Note: These will not be drop-off events. Parents must stay at the track.
Participants compete against others in their grade level, select one or more of the following events:
100m 1-Mile Run
200m Long Jump
REGISTRATION AND FEES:
Athletes may participate in one or both meets. Pre-registration is not required but it is appreciated. This can be done via e-mail and include Child First and Last Name, Girl or Boy, and Grade. We will not be charging fees, but request a donation (suggested $3 per child, per meet). Upon arrival to either meet, please check in by signing your child up and picking up a bib number. This bib can be used for both meets; it will help us identify and record times for each runner and distances for each thrower/jumper. Athletes will be divided into age groups and will travel to each event as a group. While they do not have to participate in each event, athletes should be aware of their group’s location so they do not miss an event.
We will again have support of athletes from both the Kennedy and Jefferson track and field teams. They have been a tremendous help over the last few years. The meets also require parent volunteer support. Please let us know if you would like to help.
BLOOMINGTON TRACK CLUB:
We will once again form a Bloomington Track Club that will allow athletes a chance to get additional track experience beyond these two BAA meets. We will be holding 3-5 practices and entering (as a team) 2-3 track meets outside of Bloomington (likely USATF meets). There will be more information about this opportunity handed out at our meet.
CONCESSION STAND: We will be running a small concession stand with water, Gatorade and a few snacks.
