Track & Field is a full time team sport. It is NOT only running. We are cultivating a team concept and not allowing our sport to be a part time sport for the team members. As a member of the T&F team you will be expected to be at each and every practice each and every day. We are holding the athletes accountable for their attendance. The athletes will be learning concepts concerning proper running form, jumping techniques and form, throwing techniques and form, proper relay techniques and nutrition. Therefore it is important to attend practice daily. We will allow our athletes to have 5 unexcused absences. Excused absence are considered school issues, faith issues, school play. Unexcused absences are: another sport, trips and outside activities. After 5 unexcused absences, the athlete can no longer be a part of the team.
We strongly encourage all athletes to attend each track meet and stay the entire duration of that meet. Again we are a team and thus we will need all athletes at all meets. If you miss a meet or leave early from a meet without coach approval, you will not be allowed to participate in the next meet AND will be required to attend that meet.
Each situation is different, please reach out to me about your particular circumstances. But understand, we are a team and the team comes before each individual.
