Southern Section summer dead period announcement

The Southern Section has announced a new dead period proposal that would have schools identify a two week period during the summer for all their sports in which athletes and coaches cease all team activities.

You can check out the following at this LINK:
"Southern Section Action Item 1) Summer Dead Period - A proposal regarding changing the Summer Dead Period was defeated last April by the Southern Section Council. Based on feedback from the previous vote, the proposal to reduce the Summer Dead Period from 21 consecutive days to 14 consecutive days has returned with some modifications: the dates for the Summer Dead Period will be chosen by member schools, the Summer Dead Period must be the same for all sports at the high school and the 14-day consecutive day dead period must not include school days in the Spring or Fall."

The Los Angeles Times writer Eric Sondheimer posted about this on his Twitter account which you can check out HERE and take note of the replies to his post.

Dublin CA Winter Championships Qualifier

Hello Coaches,

Thank you for your interest in the CA Winter Championships qualifying meet hosted by Dublin High School on Saturday, February 1, 2020 at 9:00 AM.  All of the meet information including the following forms can be found at http://www.dublincrosscountry.com (YOU MAY NEED TO REFRESH YOUR CACHE AS IT IS A NEW WEBSITE FORWARD).  Here are a few things to note:
  • Please be sure to arrive early to avoid long lines and wait times.  We will start the meet on time and roll through the schedule regardless of the registration area lines.
  • Individual Sign Up Online Form - Please have your athletes fill this out by the Thursday, January 30, 2020 9:00 PM deadline.  This will allow them to get their bib number immediately on Saturday upon arrival.  They will NOT have to wait in line in the registration area, which will save them a lot of time and stress.
  • Individual Sign Up Paper Sheet - If they are unable to fill out the Online Form, they will need to have this sheet filled out in order to register.  If they could have this filled out before arrival, that will save them SOME time but they will still have to wait in line in the registration area to get a bib number.  You do not need to fill out the "Event" or "Mark" space.
  • Relay Sign Up Sheet - This will act as your "relay card".  You will need to print this, have it filled out, and provide it at CHECK-IN in order to run in the relay.  You do not need to fill out the "Mark" space.
  • $12 unlimited entry for athletes, $5 for spectators, and a $25 ADDITIONAL FEE for all qualifying athletes that wish to compete in the CA Track & Field Winter Championship Finals at Arcadia High School on Saturday, February 8, 2020.  This MUST be paid before you leave the meet on Saturday.  Please read more about this at http://www.dublincrosscountry.com.

Thanks and we will see you on Saturday!

2020 Track and Field Season

It seems like Cross County just ended but the truth is that we are just a few short weeks from the start of the upcoming Track and Field season. 

As always, I am open to suggestions on what you would like to see on this site that you would find helpful and informational. I would also like to hear if there is something that I have posted before that you have enjoyed as well.

Thank you in advance for your feedback.

Scott Toney, St. Francis Mtn View Pole Vaulter 17'4" at National Pole Vault Summit

Big vault for the Lancer senior Scott Toney who has committed to the University of Pennsylvania for next fall (video of all his vaults below). The CCS outdoor record is held by Los Gatos vaulter Nico Weiler who vaulted 17'6.25" in 2007. The 17'4" mark must be an indoor record for CCS athletes and makes him the favorite to win the outdoor state title in the spring. Coincidently, Scott's dad Steve was the 1986 state champion in the Pole Vault when he attended Menlo Atherton HS. The Toneys also have quite the family legacy in the Pole Vault and have the following HS PRs.
Steve Toney (dad) 16'2" 1986
Scott Toney (son) 16'1.5" (outdoors) 2019
Marc Toney (son) 16'1" 2013
Shawn Toney (son) 15'7" 2010

East Bay Track and Field Clinics at Campolindo HS

If you are looking for an awesome Track and Field clinic for your athletes, below is the info for two Track and Field sessions that will take place at Campolindo HS on Saturdays, February 1st and 8th. You can't beat the price of $20 for each session. There is something for everybody, athletes and coaches.

Magda Boulet has just been added to the February 8th session.


If you have any questions, you can reach out to clinic director Chuck Woolridge at cougarcoach@comcast.net.

Just added from the Coach Woolridge
We are adding an online pre-registration option. I will have a new clinic flyer with that information out by early next week.

Our clinicians seem pretty fired up to deliver great presentations.

If you are a coach, please encourage your athletes and parents as well as your coaching staff to attend.

If you have an interest in a topic that is not currently on our schedule, please let me know. We will see if we can find an expert and add another session to the program.

Also added on 1/16/2020
We now have advanced registration available on the Campolindo High School web store here: https://campolindo.revtrak.net/athletics/spring-athletics/track-and-field/#/f/track-and-field-clinic-series

Please consider using this option to register for the event. While we will have registration at the door, advanced registration will give us an idea of the turnout so that we can best prepare. Thanks!
