2011 PDXC Youth XC Series State Meet Information

Published by

Thank you for your support and interest in the PDXC Youth XC Series Oregon State Middle School Championship.
 
As of this afternoon we have over 50 teams ready to register with about 30 that have submitted entries for a total count of over 260 athletes competing next weekend. It will greatly speed up the process on meet day if you are preregistered.
 
I am trying to put together a FAQ sheet for you to share with your athletes, coaches and parents to help ease the effort in getting toPortland to compete.
 
The meet is free of charge for athletes to compete in. We just ask that you have a waiver signed by a parent of legal guardian to be able to participate. We received a generous grant from the Willamette Valley Track and Field fund which allows in conjunction with several high school XC programs put this on for these athletes. It is a model that is being looked at around the country and viewed as a success in giving kids access to a great sport.
 
Instructions to enter teams and individuals will be supplied on this site if you have questions. It is important for us to have everyone registered by October 26th in order for us to prepare the labels and packets.
