On Saturday June 11th, Southington YMCA and Southington Track team will be sponsoring the 2nd Annual Knights Cup Track Meet.  The Knight’s Cup is a community wide event designed to introduce youth to track and field.  Only half of the events in a normal meet are being offered to ensure a safe and timely meet.  All 10 Elementary schools and both Middle Schools will be competing against each other in order to win the Knight’s Cup – a perpetual trophy that will reside with the winning school.  The meet also has an All Comers division for any age runner.  John Myers, the Director of Southington YMCA says, ‘We are thrilled to partner with the Southington High School Track Team to bring our running and track community together for the Knights Cup. I’m confident that all participants will be invigorated and feel like winners.’  

Dan Dachelet, the Head Cross Country coach at Southington High School says, that, “This meet is a fantastic way to introduce Southington Youth to the sport of Track and Field.  Setting the meet up as a competition between schools is a great way to develop school spirit in what could be a life-long sport.” 

Held at the Southington High School track with events starting at 9 a.m., the meet will be composed of the following events; the 4x100 meter relay, 100 meter dash, 400 meter dash, 1600 meter run, the 1600 meter relay, youth shot put, turbo jav and the long jump.  Athletes may sign up for a maximum of 2 events not including relays.  Registration can be done online at www.sccymca.org/knightscup.  Use Keyword Knight to find the event.  We will run the events in the following order: Elementary School, Middle School, All Comers Division.  Registration forms were sent through the schools and can also be picked 
up at the Y 

Medals will be given out through 8th place for youth events.  Ribbons will be given out to all youth participants.  Athletes should show up at 8 a.m. to check-in.  

PE coaches will be able to choose a single relay to represent their school.  As well, students are free to come up with their own relays.  Meet staff will organize relays on the day of the meet for anyone who wants to be on a relay.  

The meet is a team competition with each event being scored and points being awarded to your school.  There is an elementary and middle school division.  Last year’s winners were Derynoski and Kennedy. 

On Tuesday June 7th from 6- 7 p.m. all field events will be taught by SHS athletes.  Weather date for the Knights Cup event is Sunday June 12th at 5p.m.
