GMS Track & Field 2020

GMS TRACK & FIELD 2020

    Welcome to the 2020 GMS Track Team! Each of the Lions will be receiving a T-shirt for GMS Track within the first week of the season.  These shirts will be provided for each athlete and can also be used as our uniform for the meets within our cluster. In order to help with the finances of this season we are going to ask each athlete to bring in a donation of $10-$20 before our first meet.  This will help with the purchase of the shirts, buses, and track equipment for this season.  The athletes can bring in cash, check (made out to Glenridge) or use the school pay account:    https://www.schoolpay.com/pay/for/Track--Field-Donations-2019/ScLiQ1H

    Official practice will start the week before spring break on 3/9.  The first week of practice will be held after school only Monday-Thursday so that we can time athletes in different distances to determine what events may best fit them.  To accommodate students who are in the spring musical and its rehearsals, track athletes can choose which time of day to practice. Either before school or after, but not both. Practice times are Mon-Thurs (except track meet weds) before school 8:30-9:10 am or after school from 4:15- until 5:00.

     All of our regular season track meets will be on Wednesdays at 4:30, as the attached schedule shows. More information about Track Fest will be provided at a later date for those that qualify.  Home meets usually end by 6:00.  All athletes must ride the bus (if a bus is used) to the away meet, but may be picked up by a parent after the meet or their event has finished.  Athletes getting picked up at away meets must check in with a GMS track coach before leaving. Those athletes riding the bus back to school will arrive between 6:30 and 6:45(estimated). Let’s have a great season!
