We will have more in depth info posted by this weekend.
NOTE! You did not have to attend this meeting to join the team. New students are always welcome! What events you participate in and which meets you will attend will be determined by your performances in the daily practices.
The Track Season will start with after school practices on Monday Feb. 18th. That is just 5 days before our first meet!
Practices are after school 3:30 – 4:30 or 5pm (depends on light and weather) Monday thru Thursday with some Friday practices TBD. Athletes should meet out at the track. If it is raining, meet in the hall outside the gym. Parents of middle school athletes who would like to participate in a car pool (or can volunteer to transport others to the practice) please contact Dawn Hawkins.

The participation Fee is $150 or $100 if you ran CC last fall. This covers meet entry fees and bus transportation for two of this year’s meets. Checks should be made out to Sparkman High School.
Other expenses that will vary include any personal transportation to and from meets, spirit wear & warm-ups the athlete chooses to buy and other personal equipment (such as track shoes).
Meets – A TENATIVE schedule is posted HERE. We hope to have it confirmed by next week.
There will be meets most Saturdays starting March 2nd and going through April 27th (or May 3rd If you make the State Track meet!). There will be JV meets for 7,8 & 9th grade atheletes on Tuesdays after school from March 5th – April 16th.
Parent help is needed at these meets! We have a canopy that needs to be set up at each meet and we have water jugs that need to be filled. If you would like to volunteer to take care of one or more of these items (or be on the list to help out) please let Dawn Hawkins know.
