► Who participates in the meets?
We try to determine the participants for each track meet at least one day before the scheduled meet. However, illness, injury and family emergencies sometimes require that changes be made at the last minute. The athletes with the fastest times will always have first consideration, but we will attempt to alternate other athletes when possible. Athletes who have made a field event will try out for each week to determine participants for that week’s meet. In most of the meets leading up to the district meet we will be allowed to enter 4 participants in each running and field event. We will only be allowed to take 3 participants in each event for the district track meet.
► Transportation Logistics:
All track team members will travel to and from the track meets together on the bus. If your child has activities to attend (i.e. bible study, church, athletic practice, special family event), he/she MUST return a signed travel release to one of the coaches before the bus leaves Creekwood for that day’s meet. If a travel release is not turned in before we leave for the meet, we will not allow the athletes to leave the meet. Student athletes may only leave from a meet with their own parent or guardian. He/she may not leave with another student’s parent from the site of the meet. Travel releases can be found on the athletic website.
