We continue to be fortunate by having unseasonably mild weather. There will continue to be practice as long as the weather is above freezing and favorable.
Meets are select Saturdays/Sundays at the Sports and Learning Center in Landover, MD, please review the Indoor Calendar tab. We may have 1 or 2 invitational meets but it's not likely, there are no other indoor track and field facilities in the area. Athletes are expected to arrive at 7am and be present and available for assigned races, including relays, for the entire meet. Meets are an all-day affair, ending between 6pm and 7pm (ish).
You will be responsible for responding to the attendance surveys that will be sent to confirm your athlete's presence. If you happen to know in advance your schedule please let any of the coaches know.
Last year, we participated in the Regional Meet that qualified athletes for Championships. We headed to Winston-Salem to participate in Regionals which had fantastic competition. In addition, Championships were held in State Island, NY at the Ocean Breeze facility and it was such a great experience for everyone! (We had to pleasure of meeting Sanya Richards Ross!!!)
For 2018, we will not have to participate in a Regional meet to qualify for Championships. The Championship meet will be held at the Ocean Breeze Sports Complex Athletic Complex in Staten Island, NY March 9th-11th. We will be putting together some hotel options in the coming weeks. When the schedule is posted I will let everyone know.
