Meet - Etowah High School Developmental Meet - April 21, 2018

The 3000m and 4x400m relay will not be contested. We have to be finished by 12:00 noon to make way for the lacrosse team, who graciously moved their game back so we could have a meet that morning..

Meet Host and Location
  • Host: Alpha Crush and others. Etowah Youth Track Club is providing the facility, but other clubs need to assist with running the meet.
  • Location: Etowah High School, 6565 Putnam Ford Dr, Woodstock, GA 30189

  • The volunteer sign-up form goes into a bit more detail, but we need parents to help with Check-in, Bullpen, and Starting Line. Basically, we are responsible for and facilitating the "track portion" of the meet. These positions involve checking athlete's names off a list of paper, gathering the athletes when it is time for them to run, and escorting them to the starting line. No experience needed!

Event limits
  • Competitors in the 8 and under, 9-10 or 11-12 year old divisions may enter a maximum of three individual events. 
  • Competitors in the 13-14, 15-16 or 17-18 year old divisions may enter a maximum of four individual events.  
  • Additionally, Competitors may also enter the 4x100 and/or 4x400 relay events. Historically, Alpha Crush does not typically have enough entries to form a relay team. But, if you stick around to the end when relays are run, we may find a team to put you on. Talk among yourselves during the meet to see who wants to participate.
List of Running Events
Note about "estimated" times: With the exception of the first running event, we cannot tell you with certainty when a particular running event will start.  The "pace" of the meet depends on the number of athletes competing, the number of heats required, and the ability of the meet hosts to keep things running quickly.  This is referred to as a "rolling start"; the next event is started when the previous event is completed.

Coach Matthew's estimates based on number of entries and time it takes to complete a race.
As of 4/18/2018 10:00 am, prior to entry deadline; will be updated after the deadline
