How to Join Track & Field

New athletes are required to participate and complete a minimum of 2 try-outs in either the FALL and/or WINTER. Try-outs are used to evaluate athletes for potential events.

These must be achieved at try-outs in order to be consider for specific events. There are NO CUTS for 1st year athletes, but coaches will determine an athlete's events!

Coaches determine what events athletes will compete in, NOT PARENTS or ATHLETES. The coaching staff will utilize the talents of our athletes to benefit:  1. The Team  and 2.  The Individual – IN THAT ORDER.   Track athletes and parents must ACCEPT that coaching decisions are made with the best interest of the team taking precedence over the desires of any individual team member.  Time and marks are not the only standard used in determining an athlete's event.  Coaches reserve the right to use their professional discretion in determining the events an athlete is capable of competing on this team.  Track events may change year to year and week to week due to an athlete’s performance, improvement, and commitment level.  It is not always the fastest or best that will compete, but the most committed EVERYDAY!

  

EVENT STANDARDS:  Review below!

Season Attendance Policy.  ATHLETES ARE ALLOWED 5 ABSENCES TOTAL REGARDLESS OF THE REASON OR EXCUSE FOR MISSING PRACTICE.  THIS IS A “NO QUESTIONS ASKED” POLICY.  WE WILL NOT DIFFERENTIATE BETWEEN AN EXCUSED OR UNEXCUSED ABSENCE, OR AN ACCEPTABLE OR UNACCEPTABLE ABSENCE.  Leaving early from practice will count as an absence.  Athlete may be dismissed from the team if absent more than the days indicated above.  Illnesses and injuries will be considered but only if an athlete has a doctor's note indicating restrictions.  Vacations, and/or family occasions will count against the athlete if practice is missed. 

 

ATTN. OUTSIDE CLUB SPORTS.  YOU ARE HELD TO THE SAME COMMITMENT STANDARD AND ATTENDANCE POLICY AS ALL OTHER TRACK ATHLETES.  YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO LEAVE PRACTICE EARLY.  YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO MISS PRACTICE OR MEETS DUE TO CLUB SPORTS.  YOU HAVE 5 DAYS AS ALL OTHERS TRACK ATHLETES.  AFTER 5 DAYS YOU ARE SUBJECT TO THE SAME CONSEQUENCES AS ALL OTHER TRACK ATHLETES.

 

Track is not a part-time sport or recreation.  ONCE YOU HAVE CHOSEN CLUB SPORTS AHEAD OF MD TRACK, YOU HAVE MADE TRACK A PART-TIME SPORT AND RECREATION.
