FRIDAY APRIL 27th 6pm! Kids Half Lapper Race at The Warren/Eaton Invitational

200m Race with your age group!!

Friday April 27th at 6pm 

 KIDS 200 Meter Race

in the Eaton/Warren Invitational 2018

Acalanes High School in Lafayette, California

This is a fantastic experience for your kids to race and experience a track meet!

We are given 15 minutes to rally 8 races during the High School track meet. 

Coach Joy will meet you by the Snack Shack by the track at 5:30pm. There, we will divide into our age groups and then walk out to the track in orderly fashion to the start of the 200meters. Each race will be run separately:  4 & under, 5 year olds, 6 year olds, 7 year olds, etc. (combination of ages is a possibility if there are not a lot in one age group to fill the lanes)

The kids will race to the end of the 200m and the parents will meet them at the finish. For younger kids (1-5 yrs) that do not want to run by themselves, a parent may run with them.

After the race, we must get off the track because the next event will begin immediately.

ARRIVE EARLY there will be many team buses, vans & cars. Meet Coach Joy at 5:30pm to sign up. Bring a friend, too! You do not need to be a Jackrabbit to race in the Kids 200m Race, but wear your Jackrabbit Team shirt if you can! Yay Team!

This meet is terrific to watch too!  Your children will love to see the Track & Field events that they have learned in Jackrabbits! They know good running form, they know the terms and rules of many events, so seeing this sport in action with High School athletes competing will be a great experience all around!

100m American Record for Coach Joy! Honored USATF Athlete of the Week

Congrats to Coach Joy!

With her good running form- that she coaches in Jackrabbits-she was able to focus and race to a win and a W55-59 age group 100m American record!  She made sure to thank the officials, meet directors and her competitors, because as we know in Jackrabbits class, having good sportsmanship-no matter what place you finish-is important.
