           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 at 4:35.

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 by 2:30


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 any questions:

email—, or
