    Participation: 

    Track is open to all 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students.  Each athlete is required to purchase an activity card for $22.26 which includes tax and pay the $90 participation fee before the first meet in order for the athlete to be allowed to participate in the meet.  Fees can be paid online through our school webstore at www.westada.org/vms or with the bookkeeper in the main office.  If a student-athlete has participated and paid for two sports during the same school year, they are eligible to join a third or fourth sport without paying any additional fee.  Each student-athlete must also have a signed participation form for each sport in order to practice.  Eligible athletes will maintain passing grades in all classes. Students failing a class for two (2) consecutive weeks will be required to practice and dress down and attend meets, but will be ineligible to compete in meets until cleared by a passing grade check by the teacher(s) of the class(es) they are failing.

     

    Meet Sign-Out Philosophy: 

    Track is a team sport. In order to foster sportsmanship and respect for all our athletes who compete, we request that all students remain in attendance until the last event has concluded. One (1) emergency leave will be allowed to each athlete.

     

    Absences: 

    Athletes are expected to be at every practice. Students are allowed two (2) un-excused absences. Un-excused absences include two (2) tardies, issues resulting in loss of after school activity privileges, and any other absence not accompanied by a note from a parent/guardian or doctor for an excused absence. Excused absences include a parent/guardian or doctor’s note for illness, doctor/dentist appointments, pre-arranged scheduling conflicts, and family emergencies. Numerous excused absences will be seen as a lack of commitment to the track team and may result in dismissal from the team. The coaching staff is required to turn in a list of athletes and their respective events the day before a meet. As a result, students who fail to sign up for events or miss practice the day before a meet will be ineligible to compete that week.

     

    Clothing/Equipment: 

    Appropriate clothes for practice include a pair of running shoes, athletic shorts or sweat pants, and a t-shirt or sweatshirt. The VMS dress code policy found in the agenda book outlines restrictions regarding school-appropriate clothing. Please prepare for rain and cold weather. Watches, necklaces, bracelets, and earrings may not be worn. Athletes will be issued a set of track sweats, shorts, and tank top to be worn during meets only. Track spikes are un-necessary for practice due to the cinder track at VMS. Meets will be held at area high schools where spikes may be helpful, but not required. Students who lose or do not turn-in their equipment will be issued a fine. Report cards and yearbooks will not be distributed until the fine has been cleared with the bookkeeper.
