Conditioning is not mandatory, but highly recommended. During season, athletes must be able to commit to at least 3 team practices, per week, to be eligible for competition. 

Any students interested in joining the Track and Field team should plan to join for the conditioning, if possible.

Regular season practice and meet schedules will be posted in January. We will also conduct an informative meeting, with parents included, prior to the start of the season.

The GroupMe app will be updated with weather cancellations and/or location changes. Please download and have yourself added, if you’re not already.

Christmas Break and January conditioning schedules will be given prior to 12/19. 

If you’re planning to join the team, and are unable to attend conditioning, please get in a few workouts during your week. When the season begins, in January, we will be getting straight to training and expect all athletes to be ready and able.

It’s going to be an awesome season!
