Sign ups for track and field season have begun during lunch! Please sign up and collect the paperwork required to practice which begins this week! Along with paperwork, athletes must come prepared to practice. Prepared to practice means that hats, gloves, sweatshirts and pants are required layered over shorts and tshirts, with a comfortable running shoe and a water bottle. Athletes who come to practice unprepared with appropriate layers will not be permitted to practice. This is our team policy for the entire season, not just in colder months. We will be practicing at the middle school for the first weeks of the season, until the team is notified of practices beginning at the high school. 6th grade team meeting & practice will be after school on 3/22 and will finish in time for the late bus or athletes can be picked up at MAMS at 4pm. 7/8th grade team meeting & practice will be after school on 3/23 and will finish in time for the late bus or athletes can be picked up at MAMS at 4p.
