1. Team singlets (tops) and shorts are purchased by the athletes. They are yours to keep. They are to be worn at all meets. Your shorts can be either: A) a pair of black compression shorts; or B) a pair of black “baggy shorts."
2. WE WOULD LIKE for athletes to purchase (for purposes of uniformity & a “team look”) some item of FHS Track Spirit Wear (to be worn at, to, during & from all meets). We want to look like the team that we are. If you already have gear from previous seasons, you need not get new gear.
**Don't get caught without a uniform!!! Once the online store closes, there is no way to get a new uniform this season!!!
Regular Practice is 3:30-5:30PM, every day, starting Feb. 25.
On free Saturdays (when there are no meets/invitationals), we will have an additional weight room day (9-11AM). It will typically be an upper body/total body day to round out all the leg work we do during the week.
5) Tryouts & Making the Teams.
A. February 2019--tryouts & assessments (100M, 200M, 400M, 800M, 1600M, Standing Broad Jump, & Overhead Shot Throw). Please note that everyone does every assessment, unless one of the coaches excuses you. Coaches need the numbers to be able to assess where to place you on the team, and how to train you. **All times & distances during assessments/tryout week will be used to PRELIMINARILY rank you on the team, in that event(s).
For athletes trying to make the team in the throws, and only in the throws, here are the minimum standards during tryout week assessments. Overhead Shot Throw--Girls (25'), Boys (35')
For athletes trying to make the team in the jumps, and only in the jumps, here are the minimum standards during tryout week assessments. Standing Broad Jump--Girls (7'), Boys (8').
Here are the minimum standards to be considered for making the Outdoor Track & Field Team in the running events:
**Athletes must be able to make at least 2 standards for Varsity, and 1 for JV (achievement of standards does not automatically guarantee a JV/Varsity placement on the team)
B. February 25--Varsity & JV Squads FINALIZED AND ANNOUNCED. For the Outdoor season, the team will be comprised of as many athletes as the coaches believe we can work with and achieve competitive results. This typically is around 30 boys and 30 girls.
***Please have your forms completed ON OR BEFORE the first day of practice. If you do not have all of them completed, as well as register for the team, you will not be allowed to participate until you get those forms to the appropriate people.
The PHYSICAL goes to the Athletic Trainer.
CONCUSSION EDUCATION is done online by BOTH the athlete AND 1 parent.
The EMERGENCY CARE CARD goes to Coach Wilson.
The PARTICIPATION POLICY FORM goes to Coach Wilson.
