Hawks Track & Field
Head Coach: Mr. Thompson
Assistant Coaches: Mr. Bickers, Mr. Belasco, Mr. Moceri
Update to Schedule: May 14th, home meet vs. Iroquois
April 23rd - Scrimmage at Iroquois MIddle School. Pick up at approximately 5:30.
April 24th - Team pictures during practice. Forms available from Coach Thompson.
Students sign in and pick up Track & Field forms for the 2019 season the mornings of March 26th, 27th, 28th and 29th in the locker pit area. After those dates, students can still sign up but they will need to visit either Coach Thompson or Mr. Bickers to pick up the forms.
The forms include:
-Athletic Physical dated April 15, 2018 or later. An athlete must have a physical on file to practice. One of the biggest mistakes an athlete makes is waiting too long to make a physical appointment and then they find out they can’t get in to their doctor for 2 weeks.
-Practices will begin April 8th held Monday thru Friday from 3:00 to 4:30. An athlete must be at school at least ½ of a day to participate in practice or a meet.
-If an athlete has to miss practice, we ask that they let a coach know via email or stopping by one of the coaches rooms to let us know.
-On home meets, coaches are always looking for volunteers to help with timing or measure. We always show a person what needs to be done, so if you have the time, please contact a coach and let them know you’d like to get involved and volunteer 1 home meet or 3.
***Please be advised that athletes may be required to leave school early to travel to other schools due to bus schedules. These instances are rare.
