News and Announcements
Hello Athletes and Parents. The coaching staff wanted to send out a quick reminder. The expectation for the dual meet tomorrow (and for every dual meet and invitational) is for ALL athletes to stay for the entire meet to support their fellow teammates. Please plan accordingly. We hope to see families at Corona tomorrow to cheer on their relatives and all the CdS Aztecs!
Corona/Hamilton Dual Meet Volunteers
Most, if not all, of the athletes will be competing in our first home meet of the season. Uniforms will be handed out on Monday, and athletes should find out what events they are doing. The meet will start at 3:45. The order of events is posted on the website under “INFO”. Sign up to volunteer at the link below.
This meet is for Varsity athletes; however, attendance is MANDATORY FOR ALL ATHLETES. Those who are not competing will be volunteering at this all-day event. We will provide food and water for all of our volunteers and athletes throughout the day. The order and time schedule of events can be found on Athletic.net, however, this is just an approximation and events may start earlier than listed.
WE ARE STILL IN NEED OF ADULT VOLUNTEERS!! There are some jobs that must be done by an adult (such as timing and measuring), so please sign up to help at the link below. We will make sure you are able to see your child compete. Timers are for backup to the electronic system – you are not the main source of times (hopefully that makes it less scary!).
We can still use some food/snack donations for the Invite. (Extras as used throughout the season.) Food and cases of water can be dropped off at the track on Friday between 3-5, or on Saturday morning at 7:30. If you have heavy items, call or text Kristi at 480-734-6686, and we will come pick them up from the parking lot.Aztec Invitational Donations
We would like to extend a huge thank you to the businesses that have provided funding for our program this season. Please visit or utilize these sponsors, if possible, to thank them for their support. We greatly appreciate them!

Thank you for all of you who attended our Chipotle fundraiser and/or Car Wash on Saturday. We were able to raise about $5000! We appreciate the support!
This email fundraiser has started and will run through April, 2nd. The athletes should have set up their FanAngel account and input 20 email addresses. Full directions are on the website under “FUNDRAISING”.
Please take a moment to sign up for at least one of our no-cost fundraisers. This includes Amazon Smile, Fry’s VIP, Benefit Mobile or Tax Credit Donation. If you are an Amazon shopper, you could be earning 2.5% for Corona Track on every purchase using Amazon Smile and Benefit Mobile. These programs cost you nothing but the time to set it up. All the links can be found under “FUNDRAISING” on the website.
Have a great week and GO AZTECS!
Practice Times this week will be as follows:
Monday – 7:30 for distance; 9-11 for sprints, hurdles, jumps, and pole vault; 2:45 for throws. Mid distance will practice with sprints or according to Coach Walker’s directions.

Take a night off from cooking and join us at the Chipotle at 2020 E Elliott Rd in Tempe (just west of the 101). We receive 50% of sales from 5-9pm, so we need a huge turnout. No flyer is necessary, just tell them you are with Corona Track. See you there!
The car wash will be held from 8am to 1pm. Athletes were given eight $5 tickets to sell. The athletes will work in shifts and will be able to go to Sole Sports for a special shoe fitting event. See info below.
Please bring any old towels you have and a donation of 2 cases of water per athlete to use throughout the season. Thank you!
Note…*WE WILL NOT BE HAVING THE GOODWILL PICKUP THAT DAY* as the truck was not available. We will be rescheduling for March, so please hang on to your donations.
Sole Sports is a specialty running store at Rural/Warner. They are a sponsor of our team and are offering a special discount event for Corona Track & Field on Saturday, February 24th from 7:30 – 10am. Please see the attached flyer for more information.
We have 2 meets coming up that we need many volunteers for – the Corona/Hamilton Dual Meet on February 28th and the Aztec Invite on March 3rd. The Aztec Invite is an all-day event where we will be hosting 17 teams from the area. Please take a look at the sign-up links and help where you can. You will still be able to see your child compete. Any help is appreciated, even if it is a partial shift.
