PRACTICE SCHEDULE AND ATTENDANCE

Shot put and discus athletes will practice Monday – Friday from 3:30 to 5:30 PM.  Distance, mid-distance, sprinters, hurdlers, high jumpers, and long jumpers will practice Monday – Friday from 4:30 to 6:30 PM. Practice times may vary depending on what is best for each group.

 

Athletes must be at all practices and meets.  If an athlete is unable to attend a practice or a meet they must communicate that with Coach Hamway, preferably before the event.  If the absence is unexcused, the athlete jeopardizes earning his or her varsity letter and will have to sit out the next meet (coaches discretion and work is not an excused absence).

 

ATHLETE REGISTRATION

 

To be eligible for track and field all athletes must be registered and have a physical on file with the Birmingham Seaholm Athletic Department (www.bpsregister.com).

 

BUYING WARM-UPS

 

All track and field athletes are responsible for buying their own warm-up top and bottoms through The Varsity Shop in downtown Birmingham (please have the athletes last name printed on the warm-up top and bottom).  The warm-ups are the same as in previous years, so only new athletes will need to purchase them.  Please ask for Marc Secontine, Varsity Shop owner, when placing your order.

 

COMPETITION SINGLET AND SHORTS

 

SINGLETS - All track and field athletes will receive a school issued singlet, which they will need to return at the end of the season.  If an athlete loses their singlet they will be charged a $50 replacement fee.


SHORTS - All track and field athletes are responsible for buying their own competition shorts, theirs to keep, from Gazelle Sports in downtown Birmingham (99 W Maple Rd).  Remember to let the workers at Gazelle know that you are on the Seaholm Track & Field Team and that you are there to buy your team shorts.  Short options and prices are listed below:


Girl runners and throwers have two options to choose from

1. UA Women's Kick Split Short - $19.50 + Tax or 

2. UA Women's Compression Short $16.25 + Tax

EXPECTATIONS OF THE STUDENT-ATHLETE
