Track and Field - Coed
Coed Track and Field
Coach: Beth Spearman (Head Coach), Eric Martin and Michael Parks
Practices: Practices are conducted daily at the OEC and begin on February 8. Transportation to OEC is via school bus. Parents may pick up students from the OEC at 4:30 p.m. or and the team returns to school by approximately 4:45 p.m. for pick-up in Palm Court. A detailed practice and meet calendar will be distributed at the parent meeting or head coach Beth Spearman.
Required Gear: Participants need a pair of 1/8-inch track spikes. A warm-up suit is recommended for practice since the weather is often cool at the beginning of the season. We recommend waiting to purchase track spikes, because most athletes do not know what events they will be running and different events might require different spikes, I.e. distance events vs. sprint events. Athletes will also need a pair of black running shorts (their choice on brand, must be appropriate) for track meets to go with our uniform tops.
Parent Volunteers: Parents are essential for our track meet that we host at the OEC (2021 season meets are to be determined). We need volunteers to serve as timers and helpers for field events, sign-up tables, scorers, as well as other needs. We would appreciate your time to help at the Panther Relays on a date to be determined. We will distribute sign-up pages for volunteers closer to the meet date. Knowledge about track and field is NOT necessary to volunteer, it's a lot of fun and a great way to see the behind the scenes of a track meet!
