State, Regionals & Nationals Information
State – June 10th and 11th – Mesa Community College – Everyone on the team can compete.  Same format as this past weekend with the 3 sessions. The only difference is that there will be NO masters running.  The top 4 in each event will qualify to compete at Regionals.  Please let us know if you will not compete in this meet.

 

Regionals – July 6th – July 9th – Mesa Community College – Racewalk will be on Friday, but all of our other events will be July 8th and 9th (Saturday & Sunday).  We encourage everyone who makes it to Regionals to compete since there is no travel involved this year.  The top 5 in each event will qualify for Nationals.

 

Nationals – July 24th – July 30th – Lawrence, Kansas – The actual day you need to arrive will depend on your events. We need any athletes competing in Nationals to arrive at least 1 day before they compete. Please click this link for the schedule.  Anyone who qualifies can compete in this track meet.  Just please take into consideration that the competition is very steep and your child may not make it out of the first round.  It is highly recommended that you please check last year’s times to see where your child will land before deciding.  You can find those times here.  If you want to take your child for the experience and/or to motivate them for next year by all means do it.  Just please take into consideration the expense of travelling.  Please note that if you decide to take your child and they are not podium standard, all expenses will be on you.  

 

If your child is podium standard, the team will assist in their travel.  You will be contacted individually to discuss further.

PRACTICE REMINDER
I have noticed a lot of athletes missing practice.  

Please note that if you are not coming to practice these next few weeks, you will be removed from relays and not entered into the next track meets.

We are at a crucial part of the season where we can possibly move to the next level and should not be missing practice.

If you are done for the season, please let me know ASAP!!!

Important Message - Junior Olympic State, Regionals & Nationals
Hi guys,

I mentioned this earlier in the season and it is in the information packet.  However, I just wanted to reiterate a few things with regards to Regionals and Nationals.  You will be getting these little informative emails so please keep a look out and take a few minutes to READ.

1.    Relays can be changed at any time.  This means that a child running on it in State may not run on it in Regionals and even if they run on it in Regionals they may not run on it at Nationals.

Reasons – We try to take the best and most competitive once we get to that level of competition.  We try to give each child with a shot to make it in their most competitive individual event to the next level.  However, we will adjust to make a relay faster if that athlete’s individual time is not nationally ranked. We continuously check times as to how we are compared nationally and adjust accordingly.

Example – Syniah in the state of Arizona is very competitive in the 100, 200 and Long Jump and did all 3 individual events to score points in PIs.  In state and regionals she will compete in the 200, LJ and 4x1A.  She is ranked to make the podium at Nationals in Long Jump, however she has not yet hit a time that is nationally ranked in the 100 and 200 so she may even be moved to the 4x4A.

If you have questions about your child, please send us an email and I can either answer directly or send in the next email.  Our nationally ranked standards is making the podium which is 1st through 8th.  We use top times run at Nationals the previous year and those top times can come from any round of that event.  Here is a link to see last year’s national performances…. http://www.usatf.org/usatf/files/88/88e3287d-4c95-4f9b-9bdc-560391a871dd.htm

RELAYS FOR PIs
Hi guys,

Attached are the relays for the Phoenix Invitational.  As stated before this is a point scoring meet and we can win trophies for 1st, 2nd & 3rd per age group.  There will be lots of athletes from out of state... many more than Flagstaff.

It is crucial that EVERYONE makes their events. I have noticed a lot of kids not running in the events they were entered in or not showing up at meets with no prior notice.

If you have a child on a relay, PLEASE GET TO KNOW YOUR RELAY MEMBERS AND PARENTS.  Exchange phone numbers to hopefully help with missing personnel.  If you have even the slightest of notions that you may not make it in time or have something else to do please please please call a relay member to arrange a ride to the meet and you can meet them later.  Same with rides home.  If you have to leave the meet early for some reason, please DO NOT take your child.  Let the coaches know and we will get them home if necessary.

I am also available to transport an athlete to the meet and/or home if necessary.  Just call or text me - (480) 406-4266.

Sun Angl Classic

The Phoenix Invitational will be used for selecting which athletes will be invited to the Sun Angel Classic exhibition races. 100m 8U girls and boys. 400m 11-12 Boys and girls. The top 9 will be invited. 

March 18th Track Meet Venue Change

We had to change our March 18th track meet to Youngkers High School 3000 S. Apache Rd, Buckeye, AZ 85326. Millenium HS has asked we not return due to on campus drinking, smoking, and parking on grass areas not approved. None of this should happen, but it has been an issue. I know this is not ever any of our parents drinking or smoking on school campuses... This is prohibited pursuant to school rules EVERYWHERE!!! Plus who would ever think it is appropriate to do this at a kids function.  We must abide by the school rules.  We are guests when we rent school facilities.

PLEASE NOTE THERE WILL BE SECURITY AT MEETS GOING FORWARD.

A quick note from us
Great Meet!!!  I know it was a long one so I want to thank everyone for their dedication and commitment to the team.  

We appreciate you ALL so much more than you know!!! I know it was hard hanging in there but you did it.  We have the best parents hands down.  Now that you have made it through the Flagstaff meet you have been officially broken in.

We had a LOT of personal records at this meet.  Shout out to the 8U girls (Amayla Burnett, Azariah Burnett, Jania Bell and Taliyah Word) for breaking the 4x3 record.  Others were so so close. Great outlook at what the season holds.

Now back to the grind to get ready for Phoenix Invitationals in April. Make sure we are doing those crunches, wall sits and push ups at home.

You can click here http://www.athletic.net/TrackAndField/Report/FullSeasonTeam.aspx?SchoolID=70624&S=12017 search for your child’s name and see their personal records for the season.

There will be a parent meeting next Tuesday, February 28th @ 6PM at practice. Please be prompt and in the stands by 6.

With Great Sadness
For those that know the family, it is with great sadness that I have to let you guys know that Trace Washington has passed on.

Please keep his wife Samaj and kids Asai and Ani in your prayers.  I have reached out to see what they need and right now she just stated meals as she has not had the time nor strength to figure anything else out.  So if you can afford it I think we should do gift cards to some restaurants and/or stores.

I will let everyone know when I have more information.  But for now let's make sure this request for meals is done.

If you have any questions please feel free to email me.

Just a reminder that every family needs to donate for the concessions - We need LOTS of water and Gatorade so grab a couple of cases and bring to practice.  Plus any other nonperishable items you can afford.

Reminder that we will also need lots of help so please recruit parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, sisters, brothers, friends, co-workers, etc.  We can even give community service hours.

Important Information about Practice, Soreness, Payment

Practice
Mondays, Tuesdays & Thursdays at 5:30 (Some Wednesdays and Saturdays but you will be notified ahead of time)

I have sent out the days that practice is on the field.  There is practice this Saturday at 8am until approximately 10am.
 
Please remember to pick up water bottles and put them in the trash and make sure you have all your clothing, shoes and water containers.  If we could get parents to help with policing the area for water bottles and clothing left behind after practice that would be great.

When there is practice on the field behind the pool, everyone should park in the lot close to the locker room/basketball gym (in front of the pool).  We DO NOT want anyone parking off Chandler Blvd.  We need to know that all kids are being picked up in that area.  We do not want to see any kids going that way. We will call them back and have them going out with us.  Even if you are at practice.  It gets confusing seeing kids run that way and it is too dark to see who they are with.


Soreness
All muscles with aches, tightness, heaviness, and slight pain  
Please note that if your kids are complaining about being sore this is normal.  Everyone is sore in the beginning of the season because they are working muscles that have not been worked.  Even our seasoned athletes and those that participate in other sports get sore in the beginning.  Drink plenty of water (drink more than you are drinking), stretch at home and ice.  You can take ibuprofen if necessary.  The soreness will go away as you get into shape.

Welcome to the 2017 Track Season
Welcome to the Arizona Cheetahs Track Club!
Hello and Welcome,  

Thank you for choosing the Arizona Cheetahs for the 2017 Track Season.  It was really good seeing all the old Cheetahs and meeting the new additions to the Cheetah family.  We will do our best to give your child what they need for success.  As most know practice is every Monday, Tuesday and Thursday at 5:30 unless you are advised otherwise.

I will be sending several informative emails so please read them all.

We need to order uniforms and t-shirts so if you have not provided sizes please do so via email ASAP.  Uniforms are a form fitting compression material.

With that said if you have not made a payment your child will not be ordered a uniform unless you have spoken to us regarding payment.  Every child needs something on the books ASAP.
 
Please note that we need to have paperwork on every child that is practicing - Even if they are training only and even if you have not paid any fees.  PLEASE TURN IN PAPERWORK
 
PLEASE BE AWARE THE NIGHTS WILL BE COLD AND ALL ATHLETES NEED TO DRESS WARM AND KEEP THEIR CLOTHING ON ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY START TO GET WARM.  As always please drink lots of water.
 
Also, make sure your child leaves with ALL the clothing, shoes and bags they came with.  Please please please make it a habit of asking them if they have their stuff when they get in the car.  We have already started collecting clothing from the clinic.

When leaving practice please also be sure to pick up water bottles, paper, etc. when leaving.
