Upcoming Meet versus Mendham
When – Sunday, April 30. The meet starts at 1:00pm, but we ask that you have your children there between 12:00 and 12:15pm in order to get checked in and ready to race.
Where – Home at Parsippany Hills HS, 20 Rita Drive.
Absences – It is **VERY IMPORTANT** to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you know in advance that your child will not be at the meet, or if they will be arriving late or leaving early. There is a lot of planning involved the day before to organize race heats, relay team, and events. The coaches do not want to spend time trying to rearrange heats and relays during the meet, this takes away time from getting the athletes warmed up, and where they need to be.
Parking – Please only park in the marked spaces either adjacent to the tennis courts or the main parking lot in front of the school. Do not parallel park along the guard rail adjacent to the tennis courts or in the area between the tennis courts and the track. At our last home meet we were told by the facilities manager that they need to keep those areas clear in case an emergency vehicle needs to access the track.
Remember you must volunteer to have your Volunteer Bond check returned to you.
