WCA will be soliciting interest the remainder of this week for the startup of a Track and Field Team. This team would likely be in an incubator status this year, establishing a practice regimen and introducing team members to the various events, with an eye to entering invitational meets in 2017-2018. We may also seek to find a 3k/5k/10k to run in together as a team building exercise.
We will be making announcements for interested students to sign up on an interest list at lunch all week until Spring Break, and will make a determination if we have sufficient interest to form the team. Students must be 4th grade minimum to participate on the team. If it is decided to start the team, practices will start immediately following Spring Break on Tuesday April 12th, will continue on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays following, and will likely finish the week prior to Memorial Day weekend.
Primary Coaches have already been identified for practices. If you have track and or field event experience, however, and would like to volunteer as an assistant coach, please contact our Athletic Director.
Please encourage your student to add their name to the interest list. This is a team for all students, no familiarity with Track and Field events, or requisite skills are required!
Be advised that no student can commence practice in a varsity sport without a valid physical and all requisite forms completed.
