The REACH Foundation is happy to continue for the 8th year in a row the REACH Middle School Track Meet.
In 2019 nearly 500 middle school student athletes from the Placentia-Yorba Linda Unified School District competed in a number of Track & Field events. During the months leading up to this special event, many students learn new skills, work hard to prepare and are excited about earning their way to participate.
Most of the coaches are middle school PE teachers. We also have teachers and support staff that step in to coach as well. The track meet introduces many students to the team sport of Track and Field. Dozens of students that started out at the Middle School Track Meet are now members of their high school Track and Field team.
The sportsmanship displayed at this event is one of the true highlights. Watching athletes from the schools cheering on not only their school but all the schools during the event is something to behold.
