Team Overview

Being part of a team is one of the best ways to make the most out of high school. You will have multiple opportunities to challenge yourself, advance your skills and fitness levels, and make long lasting friendships.

You must understand that a good attitude is the most important thing you can bring to a team. If you can’t bring a good attitude, please consider doing something else. Some days will be cold, maybe rainy, and sometimes you may not “feel” like practicing. Those will be the days you need it the most.

We cannot achieve any sort of significance as a team by relying on 1 or 2 individuals. However, if we work AS a team and ENCOURAGE each other daily, we can go wherever we want to go. With that being said, either bring a good attitude, or stay home.


The season will get started in late February and run through the first weekend June if you qualify for the state championship.


Athletes that wish to participate in track and field will be expected to meet certain qualifying marks in order to compete for L.C. Bird. Those marks and expectations will be clearly outlined at the first day of tryouts.

Tryout Requirements

All those who wish to tryout for the track and field team must have a current VHSL sports physical dated after May 1st 2015. Students must also pay the one time uniform fee of $50. Also the students will be able to purchase team warm up gear.


Students who do not participate in another winter sports are expected to run indoor track and field. By running indoor track students will be much more prepared for the outdoor track and field seasons.
