News and Announcements
ON THIS WEEK’S DEADLINE FOR COMPETITION ELIGIBILITY:
Your child has been made aware of a number of deadlines that they are responsible for by Friday, Feb. 21. We handed out a packet of info to them on Feb. 5 with explanations, dates,and how to information. I have mentioned these dates/deadlines to them every day since. It is on the website. It is critical that they get these things taken care of-especially their signing up for XC Stats. If they have NOT signed up for that performance platform by Feb. 21, they will not be competing on Feb. 27. Any questions, please contact me at email@example.com.
UNIFORM DELAY AND DISTRIBUTION
UNIFORM DELAY AND DISTRIBUTION
Due to issues with the mishandling of our 2020 uniform order, we will not have our new track uniforms in time for our first meet against Yorba Linda and perhaps longer.
So here is how we are going to handle the situation.
On Friday, Feb. 21- we will be asking the kids to pay for ALL their gear-uniform and sweats. We will be able to hand out the sweats and a couple-dozen uniforms we had in stock, but we are going to ask the kids to hang on to their receipt and have it available to show us when the uniforms finally arrive.
We will also be giving EVERYBODY – rookies and vets – their free gray team T-Shirt.
As to athlete dress for the competitions-
1) The vets will wear the uniforms they have
2) The rookie kids who ran cross country can wear their cross country uniforms for the competitions until we get the track uniforms in
3) We will sell and distribute the uniforms left in stock from last year (they are identical to the delayed unis)
4) Otherwise, kids will be competing in the gray team T-shirts
This is not an optimum situation for our program. We have always taken great pride in being in full gear; looking, acting and competing like a cohesive unit. It is a situation that has created a great deal of frustration and just plain extra work. The company responsible for the mishandling of our order is working to get things rectified, but until then we have to make the best of a bad situation. Thank you for your patience and your understanding.
New this season will be a requirement of all athletes on the 2020 teams. We are now a part of the XCStats.com which provides statistical analysis and results of all athletes in all events.
Registering on the website is REQUIRED and no one will compete until you are registered. YOU MUST BE REGISTERED BY FEBRUARY 21 TO BE ELIGIBLE TO COMPETE ON FEBRUARY 27 AT HOME!
A NOTE FROM COACH CORONA TO PARENTS: Your child has been made aware of a number of deadlines that they are responsible for by Friday, Feb. 21.

A FEW NOTES:
1) . A link will be sent to that email (as well as the athlete’s to validate the address) and the parent must open the email and click on the link to activate your registration.
2) if you competed on King track/field last season, when it asks, “Do you have results on xcstats? the answer is ‘yes’” If you competed in the time trial on February 1, then the answer is “yes”. If neither is true, then the answer is “no”
3) Distance runners who were registered on the website last Fall do NOT need to re-register.
4) Full compliance of this registration requirement is expected before an athlete will be allowed to compete
