Welcome to the Moorpark Striders Track Club! The Striders Board sincerely hopes you will enjoy the coming season and find the club and the sport of track and field as fun as we do. We also hope you come to feel that the club is your club too, supporting it where you can and helping your child have a positive experience with one of the best "life" sports around. The Moorpark Striders is celebrating its 41st season of participation in youth track and field. We are a member of the Ventura County Youth Track Conference (VCYTC).
We need your help this Saturday. There are a number of open positions that need to be filled for this Saturday's meet.
If you are interested in volunteering please sign up on our website. It's easy - just click on the Volunteering Tab!
This will be the last opportunity to fulfill your 3 family volunteer shifts or your volunteer despot will be cashed.
Welcome to all the Strider Volunteer families. As we get ready for our first home meet of the 2014 season I would like to introduce myself as your Volunteer Coordinator, and for those families who are new to the Striders, give you an idea of what to expect.
For those of you who have not signed up yet there are still a number of shifts open for Saturday's meet.
On Saturday there will be a main sign in table at the top of the stands, by the press box. Please arrive 15 minutes prior to the start of your assigned shift to sign in. Please be mindful if you are signed up for the afternoon shift you will be replacing someone who has already been there for 3 +hours. After you have completed your shift please remember that you will need to sign out to receive credit
Once you sign in you will be directed to your area and given further instructions. If you are new we will try to pair you with someone who has experience. Please remember to dress appropriately, bring plenty of water, a hat and sunscreen. Most importantly remember to have fun and enjoy the best seats at the meet!
Thank you all for volunteering your time and working to provide a great experience for our kids. If you have any questions or concerns please to not hesitate to contact me.
