Schedule

OMS Track Schedule_2018

Meets: Meets will be on Monday or Wednesday. They begin at 4:00 and should be over by 7:00. Students must ride the bus to and from the event unless a parent signs you out with a coach. If we have an away meet and are planning to stop for dinner, we will let the athletes know in advance.

Each athlete is allowed to compete in 3 events and is expected to remain at the meet till it is over. They are encouraged to cheer on their teammates after they have completed their events. Leaving early must be approved by the coaches in advance of the meet.

Practice Information

Practices will be held everyday after school from 3:00 to 4:30. They are required!! If you can not be at practice you MUST talk to one of the coaches, do not send the message with another student. There is a difference between excused and unexcused absences. Doctor appointment-excused with note, hair cut-not excused!!

Apparel: for practice please dress in temperature appropriate clothes. Wind/sweat pants or shorts, t-shirt, sweatshirt, hats, gloves, running shoes. Dressing in layers is recommended, we can always take a sweatshirt off, but it’s hard to put it on if you don’t have it!! Track uniforms of shorts and top will be handed out in the 2nd week of practice. Track spikes are encouraged, but by no means a necessity.

Eligibility: The student handbook is followed. A student that receives a F in any class will receive a warning. A student receiving an F in 2+ classes is unable to participate for 2 full weeks and must attend tutoring during this time.
