Practice will begin each day at 2:45 in the gym. Thursdays will be reserved for clinic, therefore, practice will begin at 3:00. Academics take priority over track, so if you need to make up tests or stay after for help on other days of the week, please do so but come to practice with a pass. And while we encourage you to stay on top of your schoolwork and utilize clinic hours, you must arrive to practice no later than 3:15 so please take this into consideration when scheduling clinic or attending other club meetings.
Attendance will be taken each day by your event coach. By joining the track team, you are making a commitment to your teammates and coaches so you are expected to attend every practice. Absences can also disrupt your training and interfere with your success.
