Do I get to pick the events I participate in?

You will have an opportunity to participate in the events you want. We only get 3 or 4 spots per event per team (7th girls, 7th boys, 8th girls, 8th boys), so we take the 3 or 4 athletes per team that have the best performance in those events (times in the running events, distances in the jumps and throws) You may be asked to participate in an event that isn’t your top choice based on team need. 

Can I help the team if I am not the fastest person in my race or 1st place in my field event?

Yes. The team gets points for individuals placing from 1st to 6th place. Each grade level boys and girls really need multiple people to participate in each event to accumulate enough points to win the meet. Scoring is as follows


Relay Individual

1st Place 20 10

2nd Place 16 8

3rd 12 6

4th 8 4

5th 4 2

6th 2 1


To make track as enjoyable for athletes and coaches, we need you to come to practice on time ready to work hard and improve. We also need you to be in the habit of communicating with your coaches if you have a conflict and will miss a practice or meet. Email is the preferred method of communication.
