***Important Season Schedule Change***

Parents,

We have just been notified of a change to the meet schedule for this season. The District Qualifiers dates have changed due to additional school days being added by the district where the meet would be held. The “Primaries (Ages 5-8)” District Qualifier will now be the week BEFORE the qualifier for all 9-18 year olds.

Please take this in consideration when making your vacation plans. EVERY athlete MUST participate in the District Qualifier to begin the qualification process for Junior Olympics.

The changes are below:

6/9/2018 Gulf Primary District Qualifier Butler Stadium
6/14-16/2017 AAU Gulf District  Qualifier Klein Memorial HS

Gulf District AAU Schedule 2018

 

Thank You

TeamSnap Reminder

Good afternoon!

Just a reminder regarding TeamSnap. There are TWO groups parents must join. PTX Parents and the all PTX group – Pearland Track Xpress.

If you have only one group on your mobile app, please contact Nicey.

The Parents group is for parents only. Athletes are not allowed in that group.

The All PTX group is the group that athletes can join, because we will only send standard team communications they can receive. If your athlete (13 or older) has a separate email, they can join this group under their own profile. If they want to join under their own account, you can send Nicey his or email address or they can contact her directly.

Reminder: PTX is moving away from WeChat March 1

Hello Parents!

This is to inform you that the team will be moving away from WeChat as the primary mobile communication tool. Beginning March 1, we will be using TeamSnap as the primary communication tool for all registered athletes.

https://www.teamsnap.com/mobile

Only parents who have registered their athlete AND have made payments toward the 2018 season will receive TeamSnap invitations to join the PTX team accounts.

Like WeChat, we have a Parents Only and an All Team dashboard, so expect at least two invitations for that. Another invitation will go out to add your athlete to your profile in the All Team Dashboard. Athletes 13 and up can have their own profile.

If you have paid towards your athlete’s registration prior to Feb. 5, then TeamSnap invitations should’ve already gone out to you. If you haven’t, please check your spam or contact Nicey. Nicey will issue invitations sometime today for all parents who have paid through the weekend.

***While it’s a pain for new parents, please download WeChat so you can get team updates until we transition on March 1. ***

Registration Information and Fee Deadlines

Hello Parents!

As you all know, registration has begun and we are encouraging you all to get your athletes registered because deadlines are approaching. Please refer to www.pearlandtrackxpress.com/registration for registration details.

Payments

Andrea Clay will accept registration payments today Sunday, Jan. 21 during practice. Each week we will communicate the name of which E-team member will accept payments. Coaches do not accept payments.

Uniform

Returning parents – If you think your athlete will need a new uniform for 2018 due to wear and tear, grown out of it, or will grow out of it before the season is over, then make sure you order AND pay for your new uniform by the registration deadline. Please have your athlete try on their 2017 uniform to determine whether your athlete can still wear it before ordering.

Important Dates

Please carefully review the following dates to add to your calendar. It is imperative that you note these dates as late fees will incur if full payment for registration is not paid by certain dates.

If you have any other questions about registration payments or fee deadlines, please contact Sniece Jackson.
