Tryout Standards

INDOOR/OUTDOOR TRACK TRYOUT STANDARDS

Athletes will be required to try out in three "consecutive" events (ie: 100m & 200m & 400m or 400m, 800m & 1600m), according to the group they intend to train/compete in (distance vs. sprints). In order to make the team, they must achieve the following performance standards in at least the events. Freshmen must meet the standard in at least one event. The tryouts will take place on three days: Day One- 100m, 800m; Day Two: 1600m & 200m; and Wednesday - 400m Dash (everyone). Any pre-excused makeups will be held on Thursday, or re-runs if qualifying times have not yet been met. All times listed are hand-timed.

For those athletes who are planning on being shot-putters, you will be having a try out. It will involve a throws test and a weight test, following a few days of learning proper technique. There will be more information for throwers in the lead-up to tryouts.
