  2. Attendance wilt be taken every day and if an athlete misses practice they need to inform their coach beforehand. School-related activities are excused. Please make every attempt to go to morning tutorials for help and make up assignments and not after school. If athletes miss two practices without notifying a coach, they will be removed from the team.
  3. Practice attire-Shorts, t-shirts, sweats, tennis shoes. Leggings are acceptable as long as shorts are worn over them.
  4. You do not have to buy track spikes. Once you know what event your child is doing, then you may buy equipment accordingly. A good pair of running shoes will be great for practice.
  5. Behavior/Grades- Represent MMS well. No pass, no play. Athletes will be held accountable for their behavior in the classroom and in athletics and will have passing grades.
  6. Weather- We will notify students/parents through an announcement via Sportsyou App. (access code- D9R6wDHCQ) if a practice or meet is canceled due to inclement weather and also the location for practice.
  7. For each meet- There will be two teams (Red and Blue) We will take the athletes that have the fastest times, best throws and jumps, and who have been at practice. Just because your child does not make it one week, does not mean they can't the next week. We cannot guarantee that every athlete will be able to make a meet, but we will do our best to have them involved.
  8. There will be time and distance trials for each event. If an athlete does not meet or exceed the stated time or distance for each event, they will not be allowed to participate in that event. If an athlete does not meet any of the stated times or distances in any event, they will be removed from track.
  9. Meet entries will be posted by Tuesday evening for our Thursday meets through Sportsyou App. (access code- D9R6-DHCQ).
