The 10 East Invitational is a different kind of meet - it's a celebration of our teams and runners, an occasion to host other SoCal teams on our home track, and the season's first opportunity for official race times using the AccuTrack system. Later in the season our teams will visit other area invitationals where we will be their guests!
Organizing these types of events takes a tremendous amount of time and coordination with the help of many parents and volunteers. You can help by staying aware of the following:
Thank you Parents! We know this is a lot so early in the season and we appreciate your participation and cooperation. With everyone's help, tomorrow should be a great event!
For newcomers to track and field there can be a lot of angst around the first meet - not knowing quite what to expect or how to best prepare your runner. Let me assure you, this first meet is intentionally casual and exclusive to 10 East runners precisely for this reason. There are limited events and everything moves a little slower to help our athletes, and their families, get familiar with the meets. That said, a few tips for first time families:
VOLUNTEERS MAKE THE WORLD GO ROUND (and the meet a lot FASTER)!
If you are a returning family or you've experienced track meets before, PLEASE consider volunteering. There are lots of roles that are critical to the smooth operation of each event and none of them require previous experience. You will absolutely be allowed to take a pause to watch your child(ren)'s events.
Here is the volunteer form sent out from Remind earlier this week. Thank you!
