Track & Field Meet
California Athletics will host a track & field meet at Calvin Christian School in Escondido on Saturday, May 13 2017. The meet will start at 2:00 PM and conclude within about 2 hours for the younger athletes, and in 3 hours for the older athletes. Children from ages 5 to 18 are welcome to compete, and no experience or training is needed. It will be a friendly environment to learn how a meet is conducted. It is open to students who are home schooled, in private school, charter schools, or public school.
