JO Track & Field 2018

JO students,

If you would like to be a member of the JO Track & Field team, please visit the Track & Field page above or see Ms. Matheson in the south gym for more info. No experience is needed and we don’t cut athletes so everyone can participate (as long as you come to practice and maintain your standing academically in your classes). You can also choose whether you want to run, jump or throw (or do a combo of these).

A tentative meet schedule is posted on the T&F page.

First light practice is Thursday, March 1st after school (we have gym space if weather is really bad). I’ll post the weekly schedules on this blog each Sunday night.

All commitment & medical forms MUST be handed in to Ms. Matheson by Thursday March 15th. If you are a playing on another JO team this season, you can also compete in T&F.  You do not pay the T&F athletic fee of $50. You just have to pay the fee of your other sport (to the other sponsor).
