Track practice will begin after spring break. Our 1st practice will be Tuesday, April 3rd. We practice everyday 2:45 - 4:15. Track is open to all 6, 7 & 8th grade boys and girls.
The schedule is here. We have 4 regular team meets and then the All-City meet. To go to the all-city meet you must be the best 2 on our team in an event or meet the qualifying mark for an event. All results will be posted on this page and on Athletic.net. The order of events is here also. Notice that this year we have added the 4x400 meter relay.
For those of you new to the track program... We will practice every day. We try to get outside as much as the weather will allow. The kids need to dress warm so they don't pull any muscles. We will loan sweats to each athlete for the season. They will also get a jersey for meets. After a week of practice we will allow the athletes to choose events for the first meet. If we feel they will do better in one area than another we will direct them that way. We will however try to let them experiment with events that they think look fun. To be on a relay team we will hold time trials for the first meet. After that the best times in the 100 meter dash will be on the 4x100 relay. For the 4x400 relay the coaches will select the runners.
You will also see the team rules (2 pages). Each athlete and parent must go over this and sign it before they are allowed to compete in a meet. These rules cover behavior, on and off the field, as well as our "no F" policy.
I have also attached the track t-shirt order form. This is something we do every year. It is not a requirement. We come up with a new design every season and offer it to those that choose to get one. This year we are offering a hooded sweatshirt also. All orders must be in to the office by THURSDAY, APRIL 12th. Parents you too may get a t-shirt or sweatshirt. Check it out.
COME JOIN THE FUN !!!!!!!!!!
