***2016 Earlybird has been cancelled***

We regret to inform everyone that the 2016 Earlybird Invitational has been cancelled. The Soberanes fire containment date has moved more than a month later than originally predicted and Toro Park will be occupied by firefighters for the foreseeable future.  Be assured that we looked into all alternative options possible but we were not able to find any. Please make alternative plans for September 10th.

I want to thank all the teams that had committed to coming. We had the biggest and most competitive line-up of teams for our 22nd annual event. Special thanks to Saugus and Martin Luther King who were planning to make the trek from the southern part of the state and were bringing some of the top tradition rich programs in the state to face the best the northern part of the state has to offer. Please cancel any payments for the meet at this time and we will be sending your already received checks back to you ASAP.
Finally, traditionally we have had Earlybird the Saturday after Labor Day. For 2017 we will break with tradition and host the "Not So Early Earlybird" at Toro Park on the following SaturdayThe 22nd Annual Earlybird will be Saturday, September 16th, 2017. This will allow some top programs who prefer to wait one more week before racing to come to the meet. Please mark your calendars and we will surely make the 2017 meet the best with fire on the course where it belongs!

Best of luck this season to all the teams and athletes and please let me know if you have any questions.
Coach Ibarra
Earlybird Meet Director
