CVC Trials and Finals Bus Sign Up: The CVC trials and finals at Cosumnes Oaks HS will be on Wednesday, May 9 and Friday, May 11 with the meet starting at 2:00 PM both days. All athletes will be competing. We have two buses reserved for Wednesday and one for Friday. We may not need that many so we need to have a sign up to find out how many of you need to ride the bus. Sign up information is below:

  1. Team Entries
  2. On Wednesday we have two buses that seat around 80 so if you need a ride to the meet sign up for the bus by clicking here. This is a first come first served situation so sign up right away.
  3. On Friday we have one bus that seats around 40 so if you need a ride to the meet sign up for the bus by clicking here. This is a first come first served situation so sign up right away. You will need to be in a Friday event to ride this bus. If you have questions about the meet schedule (linked below) and when you will compete email or speak with your event coach or email Coach U. It may help to review the meet format.
  4. Both days the bus will be dropping off and then leaving. This means if you ride the bus to the meet you need to secure your own ride home.
  5. If you don't ride the bus to the meet you need to secure your own ride to Cosumnes Oaks high school.
  6. All team members are excused at 12:00 noon and all of 5th and 6th periods in the attendance office. Your teachers have been notified to release you at noon.
  7. The meet starts at 2:00 so you will need to arrive at Cosumnes Oaks HS (map) around 1:00 pm. This means you will need to leave Bella Vista at 12:15 PM.
  8. I am estimating this meet will last 4.5 hours so the last events should be ending around 6:30 pm (meet order of events).
  9. Because we are leaving before lunch you will need to organize your uniform, lunch and anything else you will need to bring ahead of time. There will be little time to get into the BV locker room to change into your uniform. Be ready Wednesday and Friday morning to be on the road by 12:15.
  10. When you arrive you must stay in the stadium. Cosumnes Oaks is still in session and no one is aloud outside the stadium. Under no circumstances is anyone aloud in the main campus!
