Monte Vista Mustangs Track & Field: Welcome

How to join the Monte Vista track team:

  1. Turn in your sports forms (including your sports physical/medical clearance form) to Mrs. French in the Monte Vista office by Jan. 20.
  2. Sign up for an "XC Stats" account. It is free. All athletes must have an account. More info here.
  3. Get in shape! (See off-season training info below).
  4. Come to mandatory practices starting on Feb. 6 at the track.

Varsity returners: Are you itching to compete? If you've been consistently training all winter, you may want to compete as unattached individuals at one or more of the California Winter Championship series "All Comers" meets. There is one at Dublin High School on Jan. 28 (first events begin at 9am) and another one at UC Berkeley on Feb. 4. Registration will be on site. Show up early, with $12, and ready to compete. Some additional details can be found in the meet bulletin (this one bulletin covers ALL the various qualifying meets and the championship).

Sports Forms DUE January 20th! Make sure Mrs. French has your sports forms by the deadline! If you played fall or winter sports, make sure to have your packet TRANSFERRED to track by stopping by and letting Mrs. French know you are doing track. No clue what I am talking about? See https://mvhs.schoolloop.com/sports_forms. NO ATHLETE CAN ATTEND PRACTICE OR BE ON THE TRACK TEAM WITHOUT A VALID SPORTS PHYSICAL AND FORMS ON FILE! (And we WILL turn kids away if we have to. Sorry.)
