It is finally time! The 2016 Track & Field Season is here, and we, as a coaching staff, couldn't be more excited!! Since the exciting conclusion of last year's season we have been anxiously awaiting the opportunity to see what this year holds in store! We are the defending Region 8 Champions--both men's and women's teams. Hopefully you're ready to go too! There are several things we would like you to be aware of this year:
There will be a Parent Meeting for all athletes and their parents on Tuesday, February 23rd @ 7:00 pm in the SHHS Cafeteria. Please make every effort to be there! We will be registering for the season and going through all the necessary information for the season as well. Please be there!
We will again be using a Texting Service to keep you and your parents in the loop throughout this season. It is free to use, and it allows us to contact the team in one message! All you need to do is text "@shhs-track" to 81010. Get on and do it right away! If you did it last year, you should still be a part of the group.
We will also be using Twitter throughout the season for information, results, pictures, and all things Skyhawk Track. Follow us @SkyhawkTrack.
We will once again use Instagram to share our exciting moments from throughout the season. Follow us @SkyhawkTrack to see our pictures of our successes!
For our Team Gear ordering this year, we will be doing two things:
1- For our team shirts, we have pre-ordered a bunch of shirts on a First Come, First Serve basis. We will sell them for $10.00. We will have them at our Parent Meeting on Tuesday, February 23rd for purchase.
2- For the rest of our gear will be using an online service to help keep it simple and organized. There are a lot of different options on the website. NOTHING IS REQUIRED. I repeat, only order what you want (or order nothing...)! We want to provide several different options/combinations, but there is no expectation for you to buy what's there. That being said, if you are going to buy ANYTHING, buy the Team T-shirt! We will wear those to school on meet days sometimes, and we look sharp at meets when we all are wearing them!
The website is http://coachsassistant.gtmsportswear.com/skyhawktrack
Order deadline is March 3rd. PLEASE BE SURE TO PLACE ORDERS BY THEN!
We will again be doing a "Spike Night" to help get our athletes into a good pair of competition and/or training shoe. We have once again hooked up with our community's newest running store--ENDURANCE ATHLETICS to do our Spike Night. They will have a wide variety of spikes/competition shoes as well as trainers discounted for our team that night. Not to mention a bunch of pizza for the athletes! It will be TUESDAY, MARCH 8th from 6:00-9:00 pm. Endurance Athletics is located at 735 N Main Street in Spanish Fork (in the shopping mall with The Italian Place)
I get asked all the time where to find the Meet Schedule. Well, you've come to the right place! There's several ways to find it here. At the top of this page is a tab that says "2016 Track Schedule." Or, you can scroll to the bottom of this page and look at the Google Calendar there. Or, you can click RIGHT HERE and download a copy of it.
I also get asked all the time about where to find Meet Results (as you should ask!) We put all our season results up on www.athletic.net. It's a great website that provides a wonderful service to our sport. As soon as I have official results, I try to get them posted there. Not only can you look at the meet results, but you're able to compare times from throughout the season, or even across multiple seasons! Go check it out!
