Track practice is daily at 2:00pm for those who have 6th hour and 3:00pm for those who come after school. It is highly recommended that you sign up for 6th hour PE (Track). Daily attendance will be kept during the semester and it is vital that athletes are at practice every day. We encourage any appointments to be made after practice has concluded. If an athlete must leave before or during practice for any reason communication is very important. Either a phone call, email from a parent or a written note needs to be given to the coach in advance. Students will get a grade for the class!
TRACK MEET EXPECTATIONS
You are required to compete in 4 events at home and away track meets. For Invitational meets the top 3 or 4 athletes in each event will be selected to represent the school. This is a coach decision based on past performance or time trials. Sometimes due to the meet schedule conflicts the top athletes may not be able to compete. In this case we will move down the list until we fill our entries. For ALL track meets including Invitational meets you should be prepared to stay until the last competitor competes. We support the TEAM! We do understand that some of the Invitational meets can be very long, so if an athlete must leave they can travel home with their own parents when necessary only with prior approval from the coaches and the correct paperwork completed
