                              Track and Field FAQs 2015-2016                                    

 

►  General Track & Field Information

At the start of the season, the athletes can choose various track and field events in which they would like to participate.  Over time, the Coaches suggest athletes focus on certain events based on performance and interest.  Field Events practice before (ready by 7:15am) and after (until 5pm) school.  Track Events practice 1st & 7th period.  All athletes run.  Those interested may also participate in Field Events.

 

►  Who participates in the meets?

We try to determine the participants for each track meet at least one day before the scheduled meet. However, illness, injury and family emergencies sometimes require that changes be made at the last minute. The athletes with the fastest times will always have first consideration, but we will attempt to alternate other athletes when possible. Athletes who have made a field event will try out for each week to determine participants for that week’s meet. In most of the meets leading up to the district meet we will be allowed to enter 4 participants in each running and field event. We will only be allowed to take 3 participants in each event for the district track meet.

 

►  Transportation Logistics:

All track team members will travel to and from the track meets together on the bus. If your child has activities to attend (i.e. bible study, church, athletic practice, special family event), he/she MUST return a signed travel release to one of the coaches before the bus leaves Creekwood for that day’s meet. If a travel release is not turned in before we leave for the meet, we will not allow the athletes to leave the meet. Student athletes may only leave from a meet with their own parent or guardian. He/she may not leave with another student’s parent from the site of the meet. Travel releases can be found on the athletic website.

 

►  Track & Field Uniforms:

CMS to provide each athlete that attends a meet:  

  •    Athletic bag
  •    Jersey & shorts
  •    Sweat shirt & pants (sweats to be used only at meets)
  •    Sprinters will be provided spikes (special shoes with spikes)
Families to provide: 
  •    Socks and tennis shoes (mandatory, no restrictions on styles or colors)
  •    Practice sweatshirt/sweatpants (optional, but highly recommended the first few cooler weeks)
  •    Most don't, but if desired, a white or black tank top may be worn under the jersey.
 

►  Food/Drink Logistics:

Catered meals are not available.  Water bottles are not provided.  Food/drink options:

  •   Athletes may bring food/drink to school in the morning
  •   Parents may deliver food/drink to the CMS Front Office no later than 3:00pm
  •   Parents may bring food/drink to the meet
  •   Athletes may purchase food/drink at the concession stand.  

 

►  Other Information:

Parents can sit in the stands or walk back and forth between the Track & Field Events.  CMS Athletes sit together in the stands between their events.  Spectators are not allowed on the field or track.  Spectators may take pictures and/or videos, just be careful not to distract the athletes. AT NO TIME SHOULD  A PARENT BE ON THE INFIELD.  NO EXCEPTIONS!
