Hershey rules allow kids ages 9 to 14 to participate in the local city meets. Your child’s age division is decided as of December 31 of the current year. For example, if they are 8 currently but their birthday is November 28 and they turn 9, they would be in the 9-10 age division, etc.
Your child can participate in any one city meet, but not two different city meets. Most of our kids will participate in the Ogden meet this Saturday. In the past, the top two in each event qualify to the district meet and the top two in district qualify to the state meet. If your child does not qualify to the next level, no worries, because we hold an end of year track meet and party for our kids.
RELAYS – Your kids can participate in 3 events (2 running 1 field or 2 field 1 running). One of the funnest events is the 4 x 100 relay. We need 4 same sex kids from the same age division to participate in this event. The kids love it and almost always qualify for state. State is a blast because they treat them like they are super stars. They all get Hershey shirts, bottles and lunch. If you are interested please let me know at the beginning of practice tomorrow and we will try to put together as many relays as possible. Thanks for your support!
