It’s here! The Booster club in conjunction with NIKE is hosting the
first annual Redondo NIKE Track and Field Invitational on Saturday,
March 19th from 12noon to 8pm and we need your help.
NIKE has graciously agreed to sponsor our event underwriting expenses
and donating equipment. This helps create a high caliber meet with
invitations going to SoCal schools with quality track and field
programs. We expect strong competition across all events with
opportunities for top times to be established for the season. A full
slate of events is scheduled including distance/sprint, hurdles, all
jumping events, throws and pole vault.
In addition, there will an exhibit area where NIKE and Roadrunner will
set up display booths. Other vendors are being contacted to
participate. Local press will be in attendance, and plans are in the
works to broadcast some events online.
We need volunteers to help us across all venues. They include
admissions, athlete check-in, track and field events, start and finish
line support, concessions, medical support, and vendor exhibit area.
The plan is to have volunteers work specific venues for a select
period of time, approximately 3 hour shifts. Volunteers will need to
attend a 45 meeting on Friday night before the meet at the RUHS
track. You will get an overview of the event and meet with your group
to review specifics for your venue.
The Booster club is reaching out to student and community groups but
we want our parent boosters to lead the way. If you can volunteer at
this meet, please hit “reply to author” and send a message along with
your name and phone number. Or you can send an email to:
Stay tuned as we’ll be sending out more information in the next week.
Thanks everyone, this is going to be a great event! Let’s go Redondo
Track and Field Booster Club!
