Parent and Athlete Information
CS Porter Track 2019 Information Sheet
Track Season begins Monday, April 15th and will conclude with the City Meet of Champions on Tuesday, May 21st at Big Sky High School. Practices will be Mondays, Tuesday, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 3:30pm until 5:00pm on most school days (No School = No Practice). All students in grades 6th-8th are encouraged to come out and participate. Every student/athlete will try all of the events, but students will only compete in the events they wish to sign up for. Students must be in at least two events, but no more than 5 total events (5 individual, 4 individual plus 1 relay, or 3 individual plus 2 relays).
Students who qualify for more than 5 events for the Meet of Champions must pick no more than 5 events to compete in at the actual Meet of Champions.
Running Events: 100M, 200M, 400M, 800M, 1600M, 100M Hurdles
Jumping Events: Long Jump, Triple Jump, High Jump
Throwing Events: Shot Put, Javelin
Team Running Events: 4x100M Relay, 4x400M Relay
Transportation will be provided TO track meets at Sentinel HS, but WILL NOT be provided back to Porter. Students who qualify for the Meet of Champions will walk to Big Sky HS for the meet. Please make arrangements to pick up your student from the track meets as there will be no bus back to Porter. Students must be in good standing to participate in the meets, please talk to a coach if you are struggling in a subject for help. Once students have completed all of their events, a parent or guardian may take them home. Please check out with a coach before leaving so that we can keep track of our students. There will be over 300 students at each track meet, so safety is our primary concern.
Students may not leave campus between the end of school and the beginning of their practice/meets. Failure to follow this rule will result in a dismissal from the team.
