Events for Elementary Track & Field
For each track meet, each athlete has the opportunity to participate in 1 field event, 1 running event AND be on a relay team. Some events have a limited number of participants and we do our best to get everyone a chance to try the events they want. Below are the events for track meets:
● High Jump
● Long Jump
● Triple Jump
● Ball Throw
● Ball Kick
● 50-yard dash
● 75-yard dash
*220-yard pursuit relay
Students are responsible for transportation to and from all meets. Please try to arrive no later than 15 minutes prior to the start of the meet. We use this time to make sure all relay teams are accounted for and make new teams if needed. Meets are approximately 90 minutes in length.
Please contact Coach Justin Sheaffer at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions or concerns. I look forward to a great season!
