Valders Middle School Track Program…2020 General Information and rules!
Parents and Athletes---Welcome to the Track Team!
We want to share with you the 3 part purpose/goal of the track program:
1. To have fun. 2. To learn something. 3. To do your best!
There are four things that we need for you to do;
1. Have medical information/physical on file at school. ALSO–IF YOU DID NOT DO A
FALL OR WINTER SPORT AT VALDERS YOU WILL NEED A CODE MEETING! If you are unsure of
this call Jane Linzmeier at the Middle school office, 775-9520. If you were in a
fall or winter sport you will have this done. ***This may need to get done for the
parochial school athletes as you normally don’t need this. Try to get this done before
practice starts, or as soon as possible! **A concussion base-line test may need
to be done as well if not done for another sport, this is done at school, a form
is online at the Valders website.
2. There is a sports fee of $40.00 payable to Valders schools.
3. Find some good running shoes. Running shoes are different than basketball shoes.
Stick with a name brand, Nike, Asics, Reebok, Saucony. You can find them at Kohls,
Rogans, and other sporting stores. It is even better if you can get some salesperson
to help, although there are only 3 things to look for. 1. Flexibility, bend the shoe
at the toe. 2. Fit, allow room in the tip of the toe of the shoe of about a finger
width. 3. Comfort, they should feel good to jump, and run in, try them out in the
store. You can get by with a limited budget, Rogans has some nice deals, and the
maximum you need to spend per recent sales ads is about $50 to $60. If you have
questions feel free to email or call me! Thanks again!
4.. For practice days, sensible clothing for the colder weather, to include sweat
pants, or wind pants, and sweatshirt. Hats and mittens/rag gloves will keep the
kids warm. Uniform tops are provided but black or any color shorts to wear with
the tops are needed. Again on colder/rainy days something warmer to use is underarmor,
or any long sleeve t-shirt to fit under the uniform top.
1. ATTENDANCE WILL BE TAKEN AT THE TRACK! The athlete needs to be in practice clothes
and at the track by 3:35. Three unexcused absences or tardies will result in the
athlete missing one meet. Four unexcused and the athlete is dismissed from the
team. Excused absences are: school work or function, doctor/dentist appt., family
vacations, and any illness that the athlete was not at school that day. The athlete
needs to notify the coach ahead of time of excused absences!
2. ALL PRACTICES WILL BE AT THE TRACK!–If an athlete is missing after attendance
it will count toward the unexcused absence. Practices begin at 3:35 and are finished
3. Any behavior at practices or meets that is deemed to be out of line as to school
rules will count toward the unexcused absences and parents will be notified of the
behavior that same day.
***Practice will be cancelled if weather is too cold or rainy–School will be notified
The first day of practice is Tuesday, April 7th. We have set up a practice schedule
of meets and dates that are set to go. We have kept in mind Spring break, and school
functions, as much as possible. Please let us know of any conflicts. If you have
email— Jbrouchoud@valders.k12.wi.us, or email@example.com
