    Important Dates

    • First Day of Outdoor is Monday, February 20th
    • Track Athlete-Parent Meeting – Wednesday, February 15, 2023 @ 7:00 PM

    Spring Break

    • This year spring break is April 3 through April 7.  We DO have meets scheduled during break!
    • Parents, your son or daughter only has 4 years to compete in HS Track & Field. We are allowed by OHSAA rules a limited number of meets each season. Please consider this before you plan to take your athlete away during break.
    • We will not punish anyone for being out of town during break, but missing practices/meets does have a detrimental impact. An absence during spring break could affect whether or not an athlete remains a part of a relay or competes at the varsity level.

    Indoor Track & Field FAQ

    Q:  What is indoor track and field?

    A:  Indoor track and field varies for many athletes (and it’s not always practiced indoors).

    Veterans will use the indoor season to prepare themselves for the upcoming outdoor season and to gain an extra 6-8 weeks of training.

    Rookies will have an opportunity to learn “how we operate” when lifting (hopefully), stretching and doing various drills.

    Tweeners (athletes not sure where they fit in) will get a chance to try track and field. Everyone will have an opportunity to get to know the staff and other athletes while working hard, having fun, and becoming a faster/stronger athlete.

    Q:  What will I need to be able to participate?

    A:  A completed physical (Final Forms), updated emergency information (Final Forms), water bottle, warm clothes, and a positive attitude.

     

    Q:  Where will I dress for indoor practice?

    A:  Typically, athletes do not have access to the “regular/outdoor season” locker rooms. Athletes will dress in the appropriate PE locker room. A lock is needed to secure your items but may NOT be left overnight.

    Q:  Will we compete in indoor meets?

    A:  Coaches will be present at a few meets – see calendar below. Athletes should get signed up as soon as possible as spots get filled and meets are closed out. Some meets will involve all participants, while others may have qualifying standards. Coaches will evaluate what is best for athletes. Athletes are welcome to compete “unattached” at any indoor meets offered via Milesplit. Athletes/Families will be responsible for entry fees and transportation. A continually updated list of ALL meets can be found at oh.milesplit.com/calendar.

     

    Q:   Is attendance mandatory for indoor track and field practices?

    A:  No, attendance is mandatory for the outdoor season only. Athletes are expected to attend if they are not competing in a winter sport.

    Q:   When are practices?

    A:  Generally, practices for ALL will take place on Monday and Wednesday at 3:15pm with a warm-up then a workout to follow, and concluding with lifting beginning at 4:30pm. Sprinters, hurdlers, jumpers, vaulters, and throwers will have an additional practice each Tuesday evening from 8pm until about 9/9:30pm. More specific calendars will be made available as space has been secured. See your position coach for more details.

    Q: Is weight room attendance mandatory?

    A: The expectation is that all athletes begin training in the weight room at the time scheduled. Our weight room sessions will focus on the functional, basic human movements of push, pull, squat, hinge, and loaded carries. Strength is the base of all human performance. All athletes have the same need: strength. Strength training is general preparation, nothing more.

    Q:  Why do you call it indoor track and field when we practice outside?

    A:  Good question. Practices will take place outside if the temperature is above 30o F. When it is colder, practices will occur in the upstairs hallways or wherever there is space available inside - the practice schedule has been designed very carefully to maximize our ability to use gym space/time. Distance runners will go out each practice as long as appropriately dressed. We have access to the auxiliary gym on Tuesday nights: all field events, sprint starts, and hurdling will be practiced.

    For the technical events, as mentioned earlier this is critical pre-season time, not so much to prepare for indoor meets (although some athletes have such  goals). For everyone, this is a time to establish a good base fitness level.
