2018 SCTC Youth Track and Field Program
WE WILL BE MEETING AT BLUE BALL PARK ON THURSDAY 4/19. SOQUEL HIGH HAS JUST SCHEDULED A HOME TRACK MEET FOR THAT AFTERNOON. PLEASE PLAN TO PARK AT BLUE BALL AND WALK WITH YOUR CHILD TO THE SIGN IN/OUT TABLE NEAR THE RESTROOMS AT THE BLUE BALL TRACK. The current plan is that we will do warm up/conditioning exercises on the Blue Ball track and then we will do hill repeats on the dirt hill above the track, conditions permitting.
There is a high likelihood that we will also need to meet at Blue Ball on Thursday 4/26 due to a scheduled home track meet for Soquel High. Stay Tuned....
We will meet every Tuesday/Thursday 5:00-6:30PM through Thursday May 17. All comers meets will begin Tuesday 5/22 and will be 6:00-7:30pm. Read below for more information.
You are welcome to download our registration form and behavior contract below, fill it out, and bring it with you on the first day to avoid the first part of the line. If you can't fill it out ahead of time, that's no problem. We'll have lots of forms at the track. Cost for this season is $75, payable with cash or check to SCTC. If you can't make our first practice, you are welcome to sign up at the first practice you are able to attend. Just know that shirt sizes are on a first come, first serve basis. We have sizes from youth extra small through adult large for the kiddos. See below for more info about our track practices.

Over 13 years, she taught students in grades 4-8 everything from science and health to humanities, but some of the most fun she had was running with her students.
