  • Includes goodies such as snacks, awards, great experience/camaraderie etc.
  • This event is a great way to introduce our young track athletes to the combined events.
  • The meet is very relaxed and learning clinics will take place briefly before the start of the pole vault & javelin for beginners. Equipment will be provided however if you have a preferred vault pole or disc etc. you're welcome to bring them. Girls have the option of doing either the decathlon or the heptathlon depending on interest.
  • Although the meet is very relaxed, I do recommend a good fitness base and track experience for all competitors.
  • Entry deadline: June 3 by 11:59 PM | LATE ENTRY: Additional $10 until June 6 at 11:00 PM.
  • Please enter on-line as soon as possible because we are limiting total entries to 25.

  • Thanks as always for supporting this annual event and encouraging potential multi-event athletes to give this event a try.
