11th RETC Competition-Pacific Association Junior Olympics (PA JOs) (Top 8)

This meet is called the Top 8 because the Top 8 finishers in all events will advance to the Region 14 Junior Olympics and compete against the Top 8 finishers from Central California Association.  Of these 16 competitors ... the Top 5 will advance to the USATF Junior Olympic National meet in Lawrence, KS the last week of July. 
 
How does the Top 8 work?  All members of RETC will compete in this meet.  
  • Date:  June 30-July 2
  • Time:
    • Ensure you arrive ~2-3 hours prior to their first event.  If your child misses their event, there are no make-ups.  Allow plenty of time to park, walk to the track, stage stuff in team area and warm-up.  
    • If your child has two events that end up contesting at the same time, check out of current one and into next one to sign-in.  Then checkout of 2nd event and head back to first event to complete it.  If you are checked out of a field event and return after it is over ... you will not be given any further chances to compete.  Ask if you can get your final jumps or throws in before you check out
    • If you are in the High Jump and have to checkout ... the USATF rules state the event can only be held for 5 minutes at the current height (after everyone clears or passes) ... then the bar will be raised 2".  When a High Jumper returns ... they must enter the event at the NEW current height of the bar
    • All field events will be contested in a trials and finals format.  That means everyone gets three attempts in the trials.  Best 8 marks will make it to finals and get an additional 3 more attempts.
  • Meet Flier: 
    • https://www.pausatf.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/2017-U-Pacific-Association-Junior-Olympic-Rev-20170605.pdf 
  • Location:  
    • James Logan High School (I-880 almost to San Jose)
      •    1800 H St., Union City  94587
    • RETC will be in the stands at the top corner closest to the start of the 100m's on the home stretch side
    • Parking is not close.  Bring a wagon or something to carry your stuff in as you'll likely be walking a bit to the track.  Remember your ice chest and over pack food ... can never have enough food for an all-day meet
    • Feel free to head back to your hotel between events so your athlete can stay refreshed ... maybe the weather will be cooler then our current triple digits!
  • RETC Volunteers
    • Pick up team packet and distribute bib numbers:  
      • Friday:  Maura K (athlete bib numbers will be located at the javelin event (farthest corner of the warm-up field)
      • Saturday/Sunday:  ? (athlete bib numbers will be located in team area)
      • Lost your bib number between days ... cost is $10 to get a replacement bib number
    • Javelin:
      • Each club who brings 5 or more athletes must work the meet.  RETC has choosen to work the Javelin and will partner with Napa TC 
      • Event will be held on Friday at 1:30 pm
      • RETC Volunteers:  Coach Sue, Coach Maura K., Nathan K, Josh K, Dave W
  • Advancement to Round 2 (Region 14 T&F Junior Olympics)
    • July 5 is deadline to register advancing athletes to the next round.  Cost to compete in next round is $7 per event.  Bring exact cash or check to cover your athletes advancement fees and give money either to Coach Maura or team treasurer Cheryl.  Better to pay and find out later you can't go then not to pay and realize you could have gone.  There is no forgiveness ... miss registration ... you are out
    • What happens if your child takes 9th place and one of the top 8 finishers chooses not to advance.  Nothing!  Unfortunately the rules state that we cannot advance another athlete in the place of one who qualifies but chooses not to go
