Clarke Massey Relays Schedule: Bella Vista entries for Saturday's Relays can now be viewed by athlete or by event. Athletes should arrive at Cordova High School one hour before their event is scheduled to start. Running events will be run in what we call a "rolling schedule" meaning they will start at 8:45 am and after that follow the order on the schedule. However, after the 8:45 am start the times for each 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 Cordova High School well in advance of this guess.

8:45 am - 3200's
9:30 am - shuttle hurdles
10:30 am - 4 x 100's
11:30 am - 4 x 800's
12:15 pm - Sprint Medley Relays
1:15 pm - 4 x 200's
2:00 pm - Distance Medley Relays
2:50 pm - 4 x 400's
3:40 pm – end

Link to meet order of events | Meet Program

The first round of field events start at 9:00 am and you should figure it will take about 2 hours for each division so if you are scheduled for a 9:00 am field event be at Cordova at 8:00 am. If you are schedule for the second field event be at Cordova at 10:00 am and for the third field event be there at 12:00 pm. Field event athletes click the "order of events" link above to view when you are scheduled to compete.

Everyone should exchange cell numbers with someone on their relay team and/or field event team just in case the schedule moves faster than expected. That way we can call you and let you know to arrive earlier.

Live results can be viewed at this link.

You will need to provide your own transportation to Cordova High School so secure that in advance!

Additional Arrival and Parking Information:

Spectator Entry Fee: Adults-$6.00 Student/Senior -$4.00.

There are two entries into the stadium – Team entrance if for athletes and coaches in uniform only!! Tell your assistants to have on team apparel. Please drive down Chase Drive. Just past the Performing Arts Center (PAC), (just before you enter Hagen Park on the right) you will see Lancer Lane on the right before the park.

Buses: Travel down Lancer Lane until you reach the stadium on the right. You will drop off there  and then park in front of the school in the PAC parking.

For car stadium parking, proceed past the PAC beyond the yellow gate and please do not block in other cars. Park in Designated parking spots only!!!

Do not attempt to depart through the park, as the gate may be locked. If the gate is open you may leave that way.

At Cordova HS on Saturday there will be Regional Science Bowl, Softball Tournament, and a Baseball Tournament so please remind your parents/bus drivers to go down Lancer Lane to the stadium if they turn in too early they will have to walk through the campus to get the stadium. See everyone Saturday for a great early season meet.

Practice Schedule for February Break (Feb 18-22):

(posted 2-15-19)


Time Trial and Clarke Massey Relays Update:

  1. Our first official meet is the Clarke Massey Relays on February 23 at Cordova High School. This is a relay meet meaning all races are relay only (except one 3200m) and all field events are in teams (meet schedule). We realize that the meet is at the end of the February break but the coaches need to know if you can't make it. Please let your event coach know this week if you can't make it and we will replace your relay/field team spot with someone who can.
  2. We are monitoring the weather and if it is raining Friday afternoon we will have a modified training session at 3:45 at Del Campo instead of the time trial. Either way meet at DC at 3:45 pm.
  3. A practice schedule for next week will be posted here in a few days.

BV Time Trial Entries: Click here to view the entries for our time trial on Friday, February 15 at Del Campo. If your name is not on the entry list then you did not sign up at this link. If you want to get a time or mark recorded we recommend you enter at the above link because we are using these marks to make relay and field event teams for our first meet on February 23 at Cordova. If we don't have a mark for you someone else will likely take your place on a relay or field event team.


Practice Schedule for Week 4 (Feb 11 to Feb 15): As of right now the district will not be able to provide a bus for us to travel to our practices at Del Campo. This means that we are on our own but I think we are up to the challenge. Keep working on securing a ride for yourself. See below for next weeks practice schedule.

It never rains out a practice at Bella Vista so we will practice rain or shine!

Sprinters, Hurdlers and Jumpers

Throwers

Distance Runners (800 meters, 1600 meters and 3200 meters)

Practice Schedule for Week 2 (Jan 28 to Feb 1): Below is next week's practice schedule for the sprinters, hurdlers, and field event athletes. The distance runners schedule will be emailed to you as always. Throwers (shot put and discus) will meet at Bella Vista every day after school until February 4 (2:00 pm on Thursdays).

To avoid injury and to train properly we need to get the team on a safe running surface. This is the reason that we will be meeting at Del Campo a few days a week. We are asking for parent help to transport your kids to Del Campo until our track is completed. We realize this is an inconvenience but practicing on the surface we will compete on is vital to our athletes development. Thanks for understanding!

Important Practice Information: Below is a check list of sorts that will hopefully keep you all up to speed on what is happening the next few weeks with Bella Vista Track and Field. I will be posting practice plan updates on this page as we figure out our options in the coming weeks. The coaching staff is working very hard to create a practice environment where we don't lose any training time as we wait for our track to be available.

  1. You Must Be Cleared to Start Practice: Follow this link to view your clearance status. Pre-season conditioning begins Tuesday, January 22 (see below).
  2. Where will we practice without a track? Good question! During the first week (Jan 22 to Jan 25) we plan to meet and train at BV but we will eventually need a track to train properly. We have plans to meet at Casa Roble High School (distance runners - 800 meters, 1600m, 3200m) and Del Campo High School (field event athletes, sprinters and hurdlers) after next week but have not worked out a schedule yet. While we wait for our track to be completed, our plan is to have some workouts at BV and some at the other high schools. By early next week we should have a practice schedule out to you that extends beyond January 28 along with transportation options (I am looking into possibly getting a bus to Del Campo). Stay tuned!
  3. Winter Sport Athletes (Basketball, Soccer, Wrestling) If you are currently in a winter sport you must finish that season before you join the track team.

Remind.com Text Messaging with Verizon: If your phone carrier is Verizon Wireless you will no longer be able to receive text messages from Bella Vista Track and Field starting January 28, 2019. However, you can still receive the messages if you download the remind app or sign up for email messages.

Verizon raised its rates and remind.com can't afford to use them anymore. Since remind.com is free to schools we will adapt and continue to use them. Sorry for any inconvenience. (posted 1-18-19)
