Track & Field Information 2018
Who can be on the team?
Any 7-12th grader who has a GPA of 2.0 or higher.
When will practice be?
Practice will be every day after school until 4:00 – 4:30 unless Mrs. Barger cancels practice.
Until basketball season gets over, there will be short practices on game days except for away games. Check with Mrs. Barger for details.
What will I need for practice/meets?
For practice, you’ll need athletic wear INCLUDING tennis shoes. Shorts, sweatpants/sweatshirt, t-shirts, long sleeve shirts, etc are all acceptable attire.
For track meets, the school provides a uniform that you need to bring/wear to every meet. You can wear compression shorts under the shorts but if you are on a relay team, each member of the relay has to match. If that means rolling the compression shorts up for the race, that is fine as well. You may also wear t-shirts and sweats at the meet over your uniform until your event begins.
You may choose to buy track spikes and if you’d like to look at some online or in the magazines you can; see Mrs. Barger for details. You may also try them on at Hibbett Sports in Conway or Fleet Feet in Conway.
When are track meets?
7th grade meets are typically on Mondays, Jr. High (8-9th grade) meets on Tuesdays, and Sr. High (10-12th) meets on Thursdays.
