February 20-25

Track starts this coming Monday February 27th.  Practice will be everyday throughout the season from 2:50pm - 5:00pm.  We will meet in the weight room at 2:50pm.  Bring your phones or a device the first day so we can set up our fundraising accounts.  9th grade athletes need to get here ASAP everyday.  We will move into the cafeteria the first day after our meeting in the weight room.

Check out the Eligibility Page and start working on getting everything turned in.  We have our first meet against Lone Peak here at Herriman on March 8th, so all eligibility has to be completed before that day or you will not be allowed to compete.  Coach David James will be gathering up eligibility.  All uniform and spirit pack receipts and sizes need to be given to Coach Barnes.
Everyone will need to purchase a new uniform.  However, those that ran XC, the bottoms will be the same so you can purchase another bottom, pay $30 for the jersey without bottoms, or pick an alternate bottom.  Everyone will have the same jersey but your bottoms could depend on your events. 
 The default bottoms for girls are the spanks and for boys the running shorts.  The alternate bottoms will be a girls running short and a boys 9" spandex.  Shot Put and Discus throwers will wear a boys basketball style short and the girls will wear a full tight.  These bottoms can also be purchased in the spirit pack if you would like additional bottoms; i.e. you buy a running short with your uniform and then buy a spank, 9" spandex, basketball short, or tight with your spirit pack. When paying for uniforms and spirit packs please use the office pay form on the Eligibility Page and turn it into Coach Barnes along with your receipt. Office pay form is HERE.  Those who have already paid but not given sizes of items please do so ASAP.

Fees, uniforms, and spirit packs can be paid for through fundraising, however you will only have a week for fees and uniforms, spirit packs you will have a almost 2 weeks.  Note that it takes at least 2 weeks for items to be received once the orders have been completed; i.e. spirit packs will be ordered as a team order once everyone has turned in their order and sizes, so the sooner you all get this done the sooner we will receive those items.  A general rule is we can give for credit for 50% of what you have raised, this needs to be approved through Coach Barnes.
Also, please take time to read through the team disclosure HERE
