Canvas course: All athletes should enroll in the Canvas course: https://bsd.instructure.com/enroll/6XDYAM. Practice plans, important forms, and other important information is kept here.


Uniform Handout:

Team uniforms will be handed out at practice on Monday and Tuesday to start practice from 2:50 until 3:10 in the team room (outside the 3-hall doors across from the weight room). Still unsure of the location? Ask at check-in. Monday uniforms are for SENIORS, THROWERS, THOSE WHO ORDERED T-SHIRTS AND/OR SWEATSHIRTS, and likely VARSITY ATHLETES. All others will collect uniforms on Tuesday.

Team Apparel Arriving Monday: Those that ordered apparel can pick up their apparel at practice this week when uniforms are being distributed.


Which Events Am I Competing in on Thursday?

Coaches would like to know the answer to that question. ATHLETES please fill out this Google form before practice on Monday: https://forms.gle/Da4Tdm7NT7hugeBc8.


TRACK MEET @ BEAVERTON:

We have our first meet of the season on Thursday. ALL athletes are expected to be at the track meet from its beginning to its conclusion. Check-ins begin at 2:15 for a 2:30 bus. Early departure from 4th period has been arranged by school administration. Note: Early departure is also scheduled for our meet with Mountainside on May 6.


Events begin at 4:00 pm. We anticipate concluding between 7:30 and 8:00 pm. At this time, there is no information about spectators. An order of events is published on our athletic.net home page near the bottom in the "blog".


Buses: The maximum number of riders on a bus is 40. Athletes have the choice not to ride the bus. Athletes choosing not to ride must:

  • Fill out a BSD form ("BSD Private Auto Waiver") that is posted in the Canvas course*

  • Check-in in person at Sunset on the day of the meet as usual

  • Arrive at the away facility at the same time, entering the opposing facility as part of the team

  • All athletes depart the meet at its conclusion at the same time as the rest of the team

*The form must be completed and given to Coach Neeway prior to Thursday's meet. Please fill out ALL highlighted sections of the form. Only one form is required for the whole track season.


Athletes who are licensed drivers may drive themselves. They may also drive siblings.


Attendance is taken at the conclusion of the meet. An athlete's inability to meet these expectations will result in not being allowed to compete.

Attendance/Practice Times and Dates: We are no longer giving attendance warnings. See the notes from last week's post about attendance. Athletes who do not attend practice as expected will not compete.

Canvas course:

All athletes should enroll in the Canvas course: https://bsd.instructure.com/enroll/6XDYAM


Apparel Last Call:

Orders are due by midnight Sunday, April 11: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1jOOhX1jq0B1lptrPkRZjqri7SXOQaB8U7omxP99QaDg/edit?usp=sharing


Masks:

Any athlete requiring repeated reminders about appropriate mask wear will be suspended from practice. A second suspension will result in removal from the team. Participation this spring is contingent on wearing a mask that covers both nose and mouth. Here is an article about running masks you might find helpful: https://www.runnersworld.com/gear/a33369930/best-face-masks-for-runners/.


A number of athletes report that paper disposable masks like these are comfortable and remain in place.


Being Prepared at Practice:

All athletes should have a bag with their name clearly printed on it as many bags look the same. Each athlete must bring water bottle also with their name on it.


Sprinters and jumpers should be in the habit of bringing their spiked racing shoes to practice EVERY day. There is a note about acquiring these shoes in our FAQ document.


Attendance/Practice Times and Dates:

We have practice every weekday with check-ins at 3pm from now until the end of our season, including days without school. We ask our athletes and their families to make the commitment to being a part of our team. This means attending daily. Please make every effort to be on time so that we can begin on time.


Here are some examples of what would constitute an excusable absence from practice:

1) Illness, especially this year! Please don't come if sick! Better safe than sorry...

2) Doctor's appointments (including vaccination opportunities)

3) Major family events (like a grandfather's 100th birthday)

4) College visits


Reasons to NOT miss practice:

1) A job

2) Second cousin's 7th birthday or other insignificant family events… we ask you to use judgment when considering their importance.

3) Photography Club meeting (clubs take a backseat during the season)

4) Tutoring, study groups, make-up tests, etc. (Academics are important to us but please schedule these items around practice times)

5) Another sport's practice (speak to coaches if a competition might create a conflict)


Not every athlete is able to make the commitment to being a part of the track team.

Track community,


I want to apologize for the paperwork misunderstanding today. The communication mistake was mine and I sincerely apologize to anyone who was inconvenienced by the error. It is now clear that EVERY athlete needs a COVID waiver form with TRACK in the blank for "sport/activity". This form is required only once for the track season. (One does have the option of listing multiple sports and activities on the same form).


ALL athletes must complete the check-in in 2-hall each day. Circumventing the check-in process is not good for anyone. While we hope that it doesn't happen, athletes caught avoiding the check-in could face suspension from practice or meets.


ALL athletes will check-in at 3:00 pm for practice. We hope that everyone will be able to use this week to work out any kinks with transportation. In the event that transportation is an issue, as with all absences, athletes must use the absence reporting form: https://forms.gle/vLsrWEG2Jt9pFhY86. Practice plans will post to Canvas: https://bsd.instructure.com/enroll/6XDYAM.


Thank you for all of your support, patience, and understanding,


Coach Neeway
