Thank you for your interest in the Newbury Park Track Club 2023 season!
Here are some things you need to know . . .
BK Sports is our uniform vendor for the 2023 season. The uniform style will remain the same so if your athlete still fits into last year’s uniform, you will not need to purchase a new one. Please visit https://www.bksports.com/newbury-park-track-club/ to view uniform styles and prices. Both the traditional “loose” fit and the compression “snug” fit will be available. Please be aware that, once purchased, uniforms CANNOT be exchanged so please visit BK Sports at 3773 Old Conejo Road in Newbury Park if you need to see sizing in person. Once ordered, you will be notified when uniforms are ready for pickup in the store. NPTC does not carry inventory of extra uniforms.
More information will be provided at the January Parent Information Night, date to be finalized.
Code of Conduct
In order to ensure safety and a positive experience for all, parents, athletes & volunteers must adhere to the following:
- Demonstrate respect for teammates, opponents, coaches, and officials.
- Come prepared and on time for practice and meets.
- No hitting, rough housing, or violation of personal space will be tolerated.
- Throwing objects is prohibited.
- No climbing of fences, bleachers, or equipment.
- Property and equipment must not be defaced,
- Alcoholic beverages and tobacco are prohibited.
- Swearing is prohibited.
- Only Newbury Park Track Club staff, coaches, and athletes are allowed on the track during practice.
In addition, parents and other adults are required to adhere to the following:
Setting a good example for the athletes involved in our program is much more important than the outcome of any of the races and field events conducted during the season. Parents should approach our program with the attitude that it is conducted by unpaid volunteers for the benefit of all the kids including theirs. Newbury Park Track Club follows conduct guidelines set forth by our governing Conference (VCYTC), and that VCYTC’s rules of conduct for competition apply in any and all Newbury Park Track Club sponsored functions.
Those not adhering to the rules will be warned by the NPTC staff. In the case of athlete misbehavior, the coach and/or the NPTC Board President will attempt to discuss the matter with the athlete's parents. To ensure the safety of the other athletes, any violation of the rules above could result in suspension and/or expulsion from the NPTC program. In such a case, no refunds will be issued.
The Newbury Park Track Club is run entirely by volunteers. To ensure meets run safely and efficiently, and to give all parents the opportunity to support their athletes and enjoy some time during each meet as spectators, we divide the workload among all participating families. Each NPTC family is required to sign up for a minimum of three volunteer shifts each season.
One $200.00 volunteer deposit will be required per family. The deposit must be provided in the form of a check payable to NPTC and must be received at Parent Information Night or provided to a coach or board member in advance of the first practice. Athletes will not be permitted to participate in practices or meets prior to receipt of the volunteer deposit check. Families that meet or exceed the minimum volunteer commitment will have the deposit shredded or returned at the end of the season. If volunteer responsibilities are not met, your check will be deposited. Information on how to sign up for volunteer shifts will be forthcoming. Volunteer positions will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Please note: The Dual Conference Meet, Varsity Meet, and Championship Meet will be handled independently of the regular season requirement. Families with an athlete participating in these meets may be required to volunteer; failure to complete this requirement will result in the forfeiture of the volunteer deposit. Sign-ups for volunteer positions at these meets will be handled separately.
If you have any volunteer requirement questions, please reach out to Elise Baumann, NPTC Volunteer Coordinator:
By submitting your registration, you are acknowledging that you have read the above. You are also agreeing to abide by the Code of Conduct and to fulfill the Volunteer Requirement.
