GCAC Elementary track & field parents,
Reminder that tonight (Tuesday) we will meet at the Grove City College track and have practice from 6-7pm. We will meet here again on Tues. May 25 and June 1.
**Reminder - our last practice is Thur. June 3.
We will attend an optional end-of-season TRACK MEET at Slippery Rock University on Wed. June 9.
SPECIAL DISCOUNTED GCAC RATE is $10 per individual or $20 per Household (paid at meet when you arrive and register) and includes unlimited event entries. If you see SRU Coach John Papa please thank him!
If your child wants to participate in a throwing event (Shot Put and/or Javelin) arrive around 4pm. One of the GCAC coaches will provide the equipment.
If your child wants to do the long jump, arrive 5:15pm (it starts at 5:30pm)
All others, arrive by 5:30pm so we can all warm up together for the GCAC-only elementary 1 mile run, which should start a little before 6pm. Anyone doing a throwing or jumping event at that time can leave that area and run the mile with us.
