Track Meet 4/23 CANCELED
Monday, April 23rd Track Meet has been canceled.
Mtn Vista is trying to reschedule to a later date to a venue that will better
accommodate all four attending teams. We will keep you informed as we receive
information. LPMS is running a normal practice Monday. If you have questions, please contact LPMS Front Office on Monday 488-4776.
Track and Field is a unique sport; each athlete will be able to participate in every meet. However, due to the large numbers of participants, they may not always compete in their chosen event. Runoffs and challenges will be held for all the events except the mile and half-mile (these are open events and can have as many participants as want). Depending on which meet we are attending, we may be limited to the number of runners (sprints) and field event participants (2 runners per sprint and 3 per field event). Therefore, only the top two or three will be able to participate in each event for that meet.
The expectation is each athlete will attend all practices and meets. We understand (at times) there may be a conflict that will prevent him/her from attending. Please be courteous – and send us a note or email regarding your child’s absence (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Track practice will last until 4:00 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday for all athletes. For those athletes in field events, hurdles, and relays, practice will last until 4:30 p.m. Please ensure your child has proper running shoes and clothing associated with springtime weather conditions in Colorado.
We are expecting over one hundred athletes (150 last year) to participate in track this year and keeping track of your child at away meets is critical; consequently, our transportation policy is strict. Each student will ride the bus to the meet. Only you can sign YOUR child out and take them home. All sign-outs must be with Mr. Olgren. I will be located (usually) at the LPMS camp (unless prior arrangements are made – no parent is allowed to take someone else’s child home – email or note).
Athletes are expected to wear the shorts and Lewis-Palmer Athletics t-shirts to all meets. We would also like them to bring their sweats with them for every meet, as weather changes quickly in Colorado. Many seventh and eighth graders have the Lewis-Palmer Athletics (track) t-shirts and shorts from Track (last year) or Cross Country (this year).
New students to the school and any student without a t-shirt or shorts will need to purchase one. See purchase form in resources under documents. These t-shirts may be used for cross country, track, and intramurals both in 7th and 8th grade.
Please make a check out to LPMS and have your child give it to Mrs. Prosseda in the main office. If you are unable to afford a t-shirt and shorts at this time, please don’t hesitate to email me (email@example.com). We do have scholarship funds to help out with this.
