COMMON EVENTS IN TRACK
There are several common categories of events in Track and Field. The broad categories are Sprints (100 Meters, 200 Meters, and sprint relays) Mid Distance (400 Meters and 800 Meters and Relays), Distance (1600 Meter and 3200 Meters), Hurdles (100 Meter and 300 Meters) Jumps (Long Jump, Triple Jump, High Jump and Pole Vault) Throws (Shot and Discus).
HOW DO NEW ATHLETES FIGURE OUT WHAT EVENTS TO DO?
It’s important to know what you’re good at. Are you a super-fast runner at short distances and have a fast stride turnover? You might be good at sprints. Do you have great coordination as well as speed? You might try hurdles.
Do you have a strong upper body? You might be good at throwing events like shot put and discus. Do you have a lot of elasticity in your body? You might be a good candidate for long sprints or jumping.
As coaches, we may see something in you and suggest certain events. If you really aren’t sure, you can also try a few different events and see which you like best.
Season Start Date? Meet Schedule?
I am assuming that our season will be different and will start later. Winter Sports has started later and is ending at the end of March. More than likely we begin after Spring Break the beginning of April. I will update as I know more from the State High School League.
What grades can compete in Track and Field?
Track and Field is offered to students in Tartan grades 9-12 and there has been exceptional athletes that have started in grades 7th or 8th in the Tartan school boundaries.
