Great turnout at the Parent Meeting!



Thank you to every parent who made it to our meeting this past Monday, March 5th. We appreciate EVERYONE who filled out a registration form, made a tax-deductible donation to the Sea King Running Foundation, and picked up their athlete’s uniform. In case you were not able to make it, here are some links to the forms we passed out. You can have your athlete turn it in at practice, or mail it to the address on the form.

Meeting Summary: 


  1. Fill out registration form completely. Mail as instructed, or give it directly to Coach Sumner. Forms are due by March 16th.

  1. Have your athlete ask about their specific shoe/spikes needs for their event from their coach (it varies depending the event they participate in – ie Jumpers need different spikes than runners)
  2. We are asking that each parent volunteer at at least 1-2 meets during the season! There are many ways we can use your help.

Timer – finish line; stopwatch and quick tutorial provided.

Spotters for finish line coaches. They appreciate help so we get the most accurate times for all our runners.

Measurer/raker in high jump, long jump and triple jump pits

Scorer – Note top finishers on score cards at finish line; take to score book keepers at tent. ALSO, we would like train 2-3 people to learn how to note scores in the official scorebooks. Just sit and observe a few times!

Hurdles adjustment/removal

Snacks/Water – we can use many of you for this

Photography – we need photos for each type of event; help with season-end slideshow shown at banquet.

Banquet committee – see Julie Means or Brigid Cianfrani if interested.

It REALLY is fun, and its great meeting each other and watching our kids at the same time. Reply to this email if you are willing to help out. Thank you to those who signed up at the parent meeting!

  1. Keep this schedule in a handy spot for reference, and COME OUT to the meets to support our Sea King athletes!
