Sac Joaquin Section Division 2 Hurdle Crew (5-8-24 and 5-10-24): Bella Vista is the host of the SJS D2 Prelims and Finals on May 8 and 10. We need to put together a hurdle crew made up of team members who will not be qualifying on from the CVC Finals. This would be the freshman and sophomores in the frosh/soph division at the CVC Finals or juniors and seniors who don't qualify. The hurdle crew's job is to simply set up hurdles for the races then put them away in the hurdle bin, help put away high jump mats, and move blocks. It is important that if you sign up you are committed and don't flake out on the coaching staff. Follow this link to sign up to help at the meet. You will need to be at BV on Wednesday, May 8 from 4:00 to 7:30 and on Friday, May 10 from 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm. If you help with the hurdle crew you will receive a meet volunteer t-shirt to wear at the meet and keep afterwards.

Arrival Instructions: Hurdle crew members should arrive at 4:00 pm on Wednesday, May 8 and 5:30 pm on Friday, May 10. Report to Coach U for your t-shirt and instructions on how we will organize the hurdle races.

Bus To Yuba City High School Information (4-24-24): We have secured two buses for those that need a ride to Roseville High School on Wednesday, April 24. These buses will take you to Yuba City HS AND bring you back to Bella Vista. If a parent picks you up from Yuba City HS you will need to check out with a coach who rode the bus with you. This is a first come first served situation (55 seats per bus) so if you need a ride sign up right away. The bus departs Bella Vista at 1:15 pm so you must be on it before then. You will be excused at 1:00 pm. After you are excused go straight to the bus. It should arrive at Yuba City HS at 2:30. Click this link to sign up for the bus.

CVC Meet 1 at Yuba City HS (Map) - Meet Information, Travel and Arrival Instructions

  1. If you are not taking the bus you will need to secure your own ride and plan on arriving at Roseville HS at 2:30 pm.
  2. All team members not taking the bus are excused in the attendance office at 1:00 pm on Wednesday, April 24. You will not need a pink dismissal pass just go directly to the parking lot after 1:00 PM and hit the road so that you will arrive by 2:30 pm.
  3. When you arrive (by bus or personal car) you must stay in the stadium. Yuba City HS may still be in session and no one is allowed outside the stadium. Under no circumstances is anyone allowed in the main campus! Be on your best behavior! We are guests of Yuba City so let's show how classy the Broncos are when we arrive. Be respectful, watch your language, cheer for those giving awesome effort!
  4. The meet starts at 3:30 pm and should end around 7:30 - 7:45 pm.
  5. Parking: From the coach - On Wednesday, school gets out at 2:40pm. If the bus drops you off between 2:15 - 2:30 then they can drop you off right on one of the main roads, either Franklin Rd, or Clark Ave. Both of those streets are adjacent to the track stadium and all the entry gates will be unlocked since we are not charging entry fee. If for some reason your bus can't get here until 2:40pm then its going to be mayhem until about 2:55pm while all the students are leaving campus. If that is the case, you'll want your bus driver to drop you off in the dirt parking lot which is on the corner of Franklin Rd and Clark Ave. It is across the street from the stadium. I would just shoot to be here around 2:15 - 2:30pm. Those that are driving personal cars may have a hard time finding a parking spot in the parking lot before 2:55pm but there will be some available. The parking lot is on Clark Ave. across the street from the Stadium.
  6. Spectator Fees - From the coach - It is going to be free entry for parents. Please encourage them to support our snack bar.

Review the documents below especially our final meet entries. Email Coach U if you were accidentally left out of an event or if you feel you can contribute to the team by entering another event (example - we have one frosh/soph boys triple jumper and no varsity girls throwers)

Long and triple jumpers make sure you are checked in at your event with the official before the start of the first race.

Bronco Speed Festival Meet Information (3-23-24): Most of the meet information for the Bronco Speed Fiestival can be viewed at this link (check meet program for the BV entries).

Since BV is the host school all attending athletes must also realize that they are there to do two things. 1. Compete, and 2. help the coaching staff run the meet. This means that when asked you will need to help move the blocks to the next starting line, help move the hurdles on and off the track and a number of other jobs that need to get done.

On Saturday, don't dwell in your own little world. Be apart of the BV track community and pitch in. Always be prepared to help someone in need when given the opportunity. GO BRONCOS!

Arrival Times: All competing athletes must arrive at Bella Vista at 7:30 am ready to help the coaches with meet set up.

Departure Times: All competing athletes should be prepared to stay to the end (about 12:30 pm) to help clean up all of the equipment used in the meet.

Running events will be run in what we call a "rolling schedule" meaning they will start at 9:30 am and after that follow the order on the schedule. However, after the 9:30 am start the times for each running event will be uncertain. Because of this we have provided an estimated running event time schedule below. Without the availability of a meet program the estimated time schedule is a guess at best.

Review the documents below especially our final meet entries. Email Coach U if you were accidentally left out of an event or if you feel you can contribute to the team by entering another event (example - we have very few triple jumpers). Check out events where we are thin by following the "BV Meet Entries By Event" link and help out!

Parking Considerations: The meet is starting close to school ending so please be aware there may be some challenges when it comes to parking in the beginning of the meet.

Long and triple jumpers make sure you are checked in at your event with the official before the start of the first race.

Randy Sturgeon Invitational Meet Information (March 9): Team members who will be competing on Saturday, March 9 are posted below. Please let the coaches know if you can't make the meet so that we can fill your spot before Tuesday's entry deadline.

Arrival Times: Athletes should arrive at Granite Bay High School one hour before their event is scheduled to start (90 minutes for distance runners).

Running events will be run in what we call a "rolling schedule" meaning they will start at 9:00 am and after that follow the order on the schedule. However, after the 9:00 am start the times for each running event will be uncertain. Because of this we have provided an estimated running event time schedule below.

Field event times are listed on the order of events (link below) and are fairly accurate with the exception of the pole vault. It will begin at 8:30 am and follow a rolling schedule. Vaulters should figure at least 2 hours per division so plan your arrival accordingly.

Glenn Poole Invitational Information: On Saturday, February 24, athletes should arrive at Oakmont High School one hour before their event is scheduled to start (distance runners should arrive 90 minutes before event start time).

Running events will be run in what we call a "rolling schedule" meaning they will start at 9:00 am and after that follow the order on the schedule. However, after the 9:00 am start the times for each running event will be uncertain. Below is an estimated time schedule for the running events. Remember this is a best guess so plan to be at Oakmont High School well in advance of this guess because the meet could run faster or slower than the estimated time schedule.

Field event times are listed on the order of events below (follow Glenn Poole Schedule of Events link). Field events will begin at 8:30 am and follow a set schedule for some events and a rolling schedule for others. As you will see the long and triple jump are on a set schedule but the high jump, pole vault and throwing events are on a rolling schedule. For the rolling scheduled events figure that each field event division (frosh/soph boys, varsity girls etc) will take about 2 to 2.5 hours.

Everyone entering the stadium must have a wristband. Coaches and athletes will be given 1 color. Spectators will be given a separate color. Everyone is expected to keep their wristband on for the day to allow you to go through the gates without problems. We are asking that the whole team enter together OR coaches meet your athletes outside the gate with wristbands. No one will be allowed through without a wristband. Note: A BV coach will meet you at the entrance to give you your wristband.

Warmups will be down on the field (due to the swamp) please remind all athletes to NOT set-up camp down there to optimise the space.

Shot and Discus Notes: They are having a swamp issue in the second ring, IF it does not get dried adequately tomorrow then they will run the following:

Shot Boys Varsity followed by JV, Girls Varsity followed by JV
Discus Girls Varsity followed by JV,  Boys Varsity followed by JV

If they get cleared to use the second ring they will optimise the order based on the heat list and confirm in the morning at the coaches meeting (8:00 am).

Team area: Coach U will attempt to arrive at Oakmont (very) early to set up our team tents on the south end of the visitors stands.

Those not entered: This meet has entry limits meaning not all of our athletes will be able to compete in this meet. We try to get as many of you in as we can but we have a very large team and the top athletes will always get first consideration for weekend meets.

Spectator Entry Fee:┬áSpectators will enter the stadium from the main gate. Guests can pay by Cash, Card, or Apple Pay for everything: Entrance, T-shirts, Snack bar, and Vendors. 

There will be 2 parking entrances, one on the blacktop accessed through the west entrance, and the main parking.  All entrances will be through the main ticket booth. (not on the maps yet). 

Admission can be either cash or card

Parking is limited. Please try to bring the whole family in 1 car. Coaches and athletes are encouraged to carpool.

Entry Gate: Teams will enter the double wide gate at the main entrance starting at 7 am - 8 am.

Check in and warm ups start at 7:30 am. Running event check in at area 10 on stadium map. See link below.

Checking out: After your last event ends remember to check in and let your event coach know that you are leaving the meet.

Final Bella Vista entries are posted below (Follow the "Bella Vista Entries By Athlete" link). A full meet program with lane assignments etc. will be posted soon. The one below are just the start lists.

Practice schedule for the week of (Feb 19-23):

(posted 2-15-24)


How to view results at track meets: There are usually two ways to view results for our track meets.

  1. If you see a link on the bvtrack.com home page that reads "real time results" it is for viewing running event results as the runners cross the finish line. These results post in real time and then the page will reset for the next running heat. An example would be the link on the home page of bvtrack.com that reads BV Time Trial Real Time Results. Although they exist, we usually do not have real time results for field events.
  2. The second way to view results is when the entire event is over. You will be able to view compiled results at a different link like the one on our home page that reads Compiled Results. These results show every competitor's time or mark in each event and the overall order that they finished a short time after each event is complete.

Uniform Options: I have been getting several emails from parents who missed the uniform store deadline. I am writing this to let everyone know that everyone will be taken care of and we will make sure everyone has a uniform one way or another. The important thing is DON'T PANIC! Here is where we are right now with uniforms.

  1. The uniform store has closed and we are working on getting it re-opened hopefully soon. I will send out that information when I receive it from New Balance. We highly recommend that you purchase your own uniform jersey.
  2. If you ordered a uniform jersey it likely won't be here until early March.
  3. If you read the uniform options on this page, you know that we have jerseys that we can check out like a library book that must be returned.
  4. Sooo, athletes can check out uniforms jerseys while waiting for the one they ordered to arrive then return the one that they checked out when theirs does finally arrive.
  5. If athletes chose not to buy their own jersey they can check out a jersey and use it until the end of the season and then return it.
  6. If you check out a jersey it may not be the exact style as the ones available to buy but will still work in competition so again, don't panic.
  7. We will begin checking out jerseys on Thursday, February 15 after practice and will continue every day after that.
  8. If you are new to Bella Vista track and field it may be helpful to follow this link and read every word of every bullet. www.bvtrack.com is our main hub of information to the team.
  9. We will have a parent meeting on Wednesday, February 28 (6:30 pm) to further keep you up to date with everything BV track! Look for announcements in a couple weeks about the location.
