 2019 Track/Field Season 

The 2019 Track/Field season is just around the corner and I could not be more excited for the upcoming season. 

If your child is a 3rd-8th grader, I hope he or she will consider joining the team. Athletes will have the opportunity to explore and compete in individual track events (ranging in distances from 50-1600 meters), individual field events (javelin, long jump, and shot put), and relays. Please take a look at the information that I have provided below. If you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to email me. Coach Bilotta at timothybilotta@yahoo.com or Coach Buzz at coachcook16@yahoo.com.

Please keep the following dates in mind: 

  • Tuesday, February 5th: Deadline to send an e-mail to myself and coach buzz with your child’s name. grade and parent contact information. 
  • Friday, February 8th. Mandatory team meeting for all athletes from 3:15-4:00. Parents are encouraged to attend. Basketball players playing a game that day will be excused. 
  • Monday, February 12th: Practices begin! If your child is on one of our school’s basketball teams, he or she will begin practicing as soon as that season ends. 

PRACTICES: Beginning Monday, February 12th, practices will be offered twice a week until the week of March 4th. Starting March 8th, we will be practicing 3 days a week. All Athletes must attend AT LEAST one of the two practices offered. Our typical weekly schedule is as follows: 

  • Monday 4:00-5:00 
  • Wednesday 4:00-5:00 
  • Friday (Starting March 5th) 3:30-5:00 

The location of the practices will be at Lacy Park (meet near the George Patton Memorial). However, I am still working to get some of the practices earlier at South Pasadena High School. 

UNIFORMS: Uniforms will be available for purchase. However, we are still working out the details and should have information available soon on how and when to order them. 

INVITATIONALS: All athletes in 3rd-8th grades will have the opportunity to compete in AT LEAST five meets (I am trying to secure a 6th) this season. Those in 3rd-4th grade will end their season on May 3rd at the South Pasadena All-City Track Meet (unless moved up to the “B” Division). Our 5th-8th graders will be eligible to qualify for C.Y.O. Prelims and Finals and MANY of them will. Our season opener will be the Knights of Columbus Invitational on Saturday, March 9th, at Damien High School. Within reason and advance notice, I will do my best to work around other commitments of my athletes. 

GO KNIGHTS!
