2019 Track Meet Sign ups

PLEASE note that we can swap times later if needed so you can be sure to see

your child's events!  Meet officiating helper time slots have not yet been

finalized but we will be in touch with those volunteers shortly.  Unfortunately,

the Pennsylvania rain has not been kind again this year... the coaches have

your child's events for the meet selected and you will find out at practice

tonight or tomorrow which events they will be participating in!

Thank you for your support this year!  Let's hope the rain clears up for the

weekend so we can have another great booster club track meet!!!

 



The track end of season party will be held on Sunday 6/9/19 from 12-2pm at the

Lehighton pool.  
Participants are welcomed to stay up to 6pm but MUST have

parental/guardian supervision after 2pm.  
Look forward to a great time.

*All participants must make at least 5 full practices to participate in the June 2nd track meet. (NO exceptions)

*We know your child/children may be involved in other sports and/or activities, but we ask that you try your best to have your child attend the entire track meet on Saturday, June 1st. It makes it easier for our head coaches to keep track of their athletes and their events. If for some reason your child/children need to leave during the meet, please notify your head coach immediately.
