Greetings Grove City Athletics Club Family!
A few important updates and reminders regarding our elementary track and field program (please read ALL):
**GCAC Elementary track is for 2nd - 6th grade ONLY (except for volunteer coaches' children at practice).
1) See the attached updated flyer. The first Tuesday practices (May 4 and 11 @ 6-7pm) will occur at the Little Eagles Football field/Bike Trail field area at the end of Greenwood Drive.
2) Thursday practices are directly after school from 2:45-3:45pm. If you have a 2nd-5th grade child at Hillview, you will need to send in a note to your child's teacher about dismissal for GCAC track. We will walk those kids over to practice, which is behind the Middle School.
3) Please have your children arrive wearing face masks. When not exercising we expect them to be wearing face masks.
4) As long as you have registered your child or household for the GCAC this year (2021), there is not a separate sign-up for elementary GCAC track and field.
5) Note, if you answered "Yes" to any of the 7 cardiovascular/disease/injury risk factor questions regarding any of your children’s health - we would need the signed doctor's note which was emailed via the registration confirmation (these are rare cases).
6) Please have your child wearing running shoes and bring a water bottle to school/practice. Running/baseball caps are encouraged for sun protection.
7) Don’t be surprised if your child’s clothes and shoes get muddy – please plan accordingly. It is almost impossible to avoid this after rain, and most kids actually enjoy it ;)
8) Please be on time to pick up your kids (Tuesday, 7pm; Thursday 3:45pm)! We are all volunteer coaches and appreciate this.
10) Our last practice is Thur. June 3. We will attend an optional TRACK MEET at the Slippery Rock University on Wed. June 9. In the past this has started with a GCAC elementary mile race at 6pm. There will be a small fee for this, with a special GCAC "family discount".
11) Grove City Athletics Club apparel order is open NOW here:
