Expectations

Runners and their Parents and/or Guardians must sign the Rules and Expectations Document before a runner is allowed to participate in practice sessions or meets. Our program requires dedication and commitment from our athletes and their parents/caregivers. By joining the team athletes are signifying that they will:

  • Attend practice sessions regularly and participate in team events.
  • Maintain a healthy diet that includes regular meals, healthy snacks and staying well hydrated – drinking lots of water.
  • Get lots of sleep to restore energy levels and aid in recovery after workouts.
  • Do well at school. Schoolwork is of the highest importance.
  • Be on time for practice and meets.
  • Give 100% effort at all times.
  • Support teammates through encouragement and positive interactions.
  • Measure accomplishment not just through placement in events but by other means as well (personal records, trying new events, etc.).
  • Respect teammates, coaches and parents; especially other runners on the track.
  • Complete goal sheets to support development of time management and goal-setting skills.
Parents and other caregivers are a vital part of the team. They are expected to:
  • Be supportive and respectful of all the coaches.
  • Support of our views of healthy eating and living.
  • Volunteer their time that can include chaperoning our young athletes to meets and events, writing grant proposals, fundraising for the team, and more.
