Yes, your meet registration fees are covered in your membership cost.
No, athletes are not required to wear their uniforms to practice. Uniforms are only required at team track meets.
Yes, coaches will be present at every meet.
Throwers will not be required to run as much as the other athletes but it will be a part of conditioning and teamwork.
Every track meet will be different as track meets are unpredictable. Meets typically start at 8am and last into the early evening hours. There are no set times for races just an order of events. The amount of time required for you to be at a track meet will depend on the events your child is participating in.
When you are sure that all of your events are done, and you have received your medals, you can leave. All Competitive Team Athletes will be required to check in with the meet coordinator prior to leaving the track meet.
For developmental and invitational meets, yes. As the season progresses, the meets get a bit more competitive and athletes need to qualify to continue on. Fortunately, there are developmental and invitational meets throughout the season that anyone will be able to attend.
Healthy snacks. Some ideas would be orange slices, bananas, cut up melon, grapes, crackers, rice cakes, sandwiches, juices and of course water. Even good foods should be eaten in moderation and not right before your event. No sodas, candy, chips or fast food. Please save that for after the meet.
Because of the uncertainty of weather conditions, come prepared. When weather reports have called for sunny and warm days, we’ve experienced at times rainy and cold. If in doubt, bring sweatshirts/sweatpants, change of shoes, socks, umbrellas (which are good for rain or sun).
Ideally, a track spike should fit like a glove – almost like running barefoot. Therefore, if any sock is going to be worn, a thin sock is recommended. For a more experienced athlete, my recommendation would be no socks with track spikes.
They should only wear their track spikes during their events. Track spikes ARE NOT to be worn an entire practice or meet. Every athlete is to change back into their regular shoes after their event.
We would like for the competitive team members to do their best to attend every practice, but we do understand that our children are involved in many activities, and therefore may not be able to make it to every practice. We do recommend practicing at least 2 to 3 times per week so that your athlete has the best chance to improve during the season.
