    All this talk about seats on buses! Did the parents then drive to Windsor with an empty car?

    Quoting: MidDistantDad
    "Legions when first instituted many years ago served an invaluable service. (Helped support development to those could not afford it or was used as an introductory to T&F) I believe now it needs to be reviewed. It does not capture the best through qualification rounds at the district or even at the provincial level meets. (Particiapation from the communities is not there) Last year a young lady made the Ontario provincial team and did not compete in any of the qualification rounds and was still in Quebec representing in the 800m for youth 15. At the end was not a positive experience because the athlete was unfortunately blown off the track. When I see representation based on this type of selection how can you not wonder what type external involvement is happening. As for dropping my kid off and have someone look after them for the weekend. Talk to some past athletes who have attended these meets the last few years. You may be surprised what you hear back. Not saying the kids are mistreated but do not get support condusive to putting in a good performance over a 2 day meet."



    Can you elaborate more. cause from what i have seen from the results alot of PR's happen at these nationals.

    I worked both days (well nights). As I attempt to make it to all other meets this was a great chance for the prince or princess to experience some independence. Keep two important things in mind - these were not a group of four year olds or even 12 year old. These were high schoolers away, within the province, for less than 48 hours - we are hardly looking at neglectful parents who didn't attend. Secondly, the kids were chaperoned at a rate of about 1 adult to every 10 teenagers. I wish my kindergarten kid's class had that adult-child ratio!

    Let's be perfectly blunt here- there is only one way to make team Ontario and that is to win your event at the selection meet (Windsor this year) There is no "picked for relays", taken in second place, etc. Hasn't been in years. It's strictly a numbers game. You win your event, it's compared against previous years to see how high you would place, those with the best chance of winning GOLD medals are taken. That's why it doesn't make sense to pick seconds, you can't win two First's in the same event. It even talked about this in the tech package for Provincials this year. So the 2nd kid in the 300 is there because they won another event...not because they are a necessarily 300m runner. Looking at the confirmation lists vs the results, they won the 800. There was a line on the forms everyone fills out that ask "If selected, what other events would you be interested in doing?" because a three day meet can get pretty boring if your main event is over the first day. Unless three guys who did make the team wanted that spot, there shouldn't be an issue.

    I'm not sure what the big issue is here. Is it that you or your kid didn't make the team or you think you or your kid is faster? AO provides tons of opportunity to race over the course of the track season. Relax, go find a good twilight meet and get a fast time. It doesn't matter where you race, just do it.

    Ya it doesn't matter if you placed first at the provincial meet if your time/distance was not going to be competitive at Nationals then you are not going to make team Ontario.

    Then why have a provincial meet? Also why do we have have 3 provincial Youth champs anyways (OFSAA, legion, AO), overkill - legion meet best to be a development type meet for younger age groups. It's time AC takes total control of the U18 champs and adds it to the AC Jr Sr championship meet.
