No tryouts are required and we welcome all students, regardless of ability. Joining the track team is a great way to get in shape, learn to run faster, have fun with your friends and help Nativity compete for the City-Championship. Events include: High Jump, Long Jump, Shot Put, Throw, 1600, 100, Distance Medley, 60, 400, 200, Medley Relay, 800, 120, 400 Meter Relay and the end of the season 8th Grade Pentathlon!
Practices will be held on Monday and Wednesday each week.
The fee for track remains the same as last year, $30 per child for grades 3 and 4 and $50 per child for grades 5 through 8. Your fee includes a track jersey and covers all CYO entry fees. If you have NOT played another CYO sport this year (Cross Country, Football, Volleyball or Basketball) you will also need to complete CYO Release Form online at www.cyojwa.org and pay an annual $40 CYO fee, in addition to $30 or $50 track fee due Nativity. Registration, fees and parental release forms must be completed and submitted prior to the first practice.
Participants must wear assigned track jersey for meets and will need their own shoes and shorts. Registrations can be completed online at www.cyojwa.org.
As always we need help coaching as well as administrative support. If you are interested in helping out, contact Robert Bishop at firstname.lastname@example.org. Parent volunteers are needed and each must be VIRTUS-trained prior to having any contact with the team. Several people are needed to help during meets and those with track or running experience are needed for practices. More details on CYO Track are available on the CYO website at www.cyojwa.org.
