First-time track meet parents: (Thanks Chris) If you haven't attended a summer track meet before, just a few things from someone who has done this for a number of years:

  • It should be in the low 90s and humid. This makes for a long track meet, so lots of fluids, fruit, sandwiches, and shade help. Concessions are usually available, but except for water and Gatorade, it is best to wait until after your athlete's last event to enjoy them.
  • If you have a canopy or umbrella, you may want to bring it. We try to keep our athletes out of the sun while they aren't running. And you'll probably need it, too! :-) Depending on the location, your own lawn chair may also come in handy (stadium seats get hard through the day).
  • Field and distance events start earlier than running events; just be aware there may be a few hours between the time you arrive and the time your athlete runs their first race.
  • We stay for the entire meet to support all our athletes. A good cheering section does wonders for everyone.
  • Celebrate when it’s over! 
  • The first summer track meet for parents is always an eye-opening experience, so we hope this helps. If you have questions, feel free to ask any of us!
