TEAM ROSTER - The current team roster has been posted under the Documents section; this includes those that have registered online for the team and turned in the 3 required forms (see Registration section). To be eligible to practice and to be entered in meets, you MUST complete these requirements. Please check that your name is on the roster. If not, most likely you still need to turn in your Emergency Care form or complete the online registration. All forms should be turned into our Activities Office just outside the interior fieldhouse doors and should be marked Indoor Track in the upper right corner. This roster will be updated again at 2 pm on Monday 11/18.
MEET THE COACHES NIGHT - This Monday, 11/18 from 6:30-7:30 pm, parents and athletes are invited to come hear about our team policies and plans and talk directly to our track coaches. We will be meeting in the Choral Room (K-104).

TRYOUTS / SQUAD SELECTION – Tryouts will be held the week of Nov. 11-15. Selection for the Varsity squad will be based on your performances in time trials, effort at practices and ability to work well with teammates. On Monday, we will hold trials in the 100m, 300m, 500m 1600m, standing broad jump, vertical jump and weight throw. We will likely have makeup trials next week for those that have a conflict on 11/11 and have contacted coaches in advance. All squads are open to FHS students in grades 9-12 who have parental and a doctor’s permission to participate. Students must have passed 5 classes last year and passing 5 classes this year.
PRACTICES – We meet on the track at the bottom of the stairs from the ticket booth. During practice we will utilize the track, football field, band field, nearby trails and the weight rooms. Varsity and JV squads will usually be doing separate workouts. Daily attendance is mandatory for Varsity athletes. Schedule conflicts should be discussed in advance with our head coach.
MEETS – Meets are typically held on Friday evenings and Saturdays starting December 6. Varsity will be eligible to compete at Invitational meets and Open meets; JV primarily at Open meets except when needed to fill an open invitational spot. There will be approximately 2-3 Invitational Meets, 3 Open meets, and District/Regional/State Championships. We are awaiting our district meet schedule and will post it as soon as it's available. Scoring at meets is based on points for place finishes in each event (typically 1st place-10 pts, 2nd place-8 pts, etc). The team with the most points wins. Individuals can qualify for Regionals and/or State by hitting specific event standards or by placing high in the qualifying meets.
QUALIFYING STANDARDS - Our State 6A automatic qualifying standards are posted under Documents. We're working to obtain District & Regional Standards.
VARSITY LETTERING REQUIREMENTS - See the Documents section.
