Reminder For Relay Expectation

Relay Expectations

Please remember to be checked in by 8:30 if your child is on the 4x100 relay

Many parents are asking how relays are determined, here is a brief description on how this is done. We try to let all athletes try the event but there will be some weeks that the numbers do not work, but those who are there, and did not get on a team, we will try to make sure they are on a team in a future week.

It is very important to the team that if your athlete signs up for a 4x100 relay that they are at the meet and checked in before 8:30 am so the coaches can assemble the teams. If your child is signed up for a relay and does not show up, or is late, it will effect every other relay runner, and disappoint those who can not compete. If they sign up for the 4x 400 and do not stay it will also disappoint those on the team that will not get to run.

This is the only event that we are strict on signing up for. Please don’t sign up for the relay if your athlete can not compete in the event.

Criteria for relay team assignment.

1) Coaches discretion -Sportsmanship and team spirit

2 Time in the 100 meters at a meet, sometimes the fastest athletes may not be selected for the A team due to many factors, based on this criteria

3) Attending practice

4) Able to hand off smoothly

5) Time in the 100 or 400 meters at a meet, sometimes the fastest athletes may not be selected for the A team due to many factors, based on this criteria

All of this is considered when coaches put together their teams (A-Team, B-Team, C-Team, etc…).

If you have any questions about this, please speak with your age group coach or Coach Elaine
