PLANNING FOR A TRACK MEET

Typical Practice Schedule: Outdoor Track - M & F, XC – M & F
Subject to Change- Please reference team email, calendar or ask during practice.
Please show up on time so you have enough time to properly warm up and
stretch. Practices usually last about 60 to 90 minutes may be followed by
brief team meetings, where the coaches will share important club news, such
as information on upcoming meets and practices and to recognize athlete accomplishments. If the athlete needs to leave practice early for any reason, it
is their responsibility to inform the head coach at the beginning of practice.
ATHLETES PERFORM LIKE THEY PRACTICE
Each practice is fundamentally important. We would like the athlete to
attend as many practices as is possible.. If the athlete needs to miss a practice
for any reason, the coaches can give them a workout so they can practice on
their own. The harder the athlete works in practice, and on his or her own
outside of practice, the better they will perform in meets.

The North Wake Track Club is a community track and field program that provides
training for children between the ages of 6 to 18 years. In 2007, the North Wake
program was officially established by Alan E. Young. Beginning with only one athlete,
the program continues to grow to a membership of over 40+ children and a staff of
approximately 5. Each year children have the opportunity to learn the self-discipline
required to not only to enable children to develop their individual athletic potential, but
to provide them opportunities to learn lessons of discipline, leadership, sportsmanship, responsibility and character. They benefit from the years of dedicated coaching and
running experience of individuals who volunteer their time.
What is Age-Group Track?
The age group divisions for competition in 2015 are as follows:

** Athletes who are still 18 through the final day of the USATF National Junior Olympic Track
& Field Championships are eligible to compete in the 17-18 age division through that meet. This
extended eligibility does not apply to cross country events.
PLANNING FOR TRACK MEET
Age-group track meets can move slowly due to the number of events being
offered and the large number of participates. Parents should expect to spend the good part of the day, up to 4-8 hours, in the stands. Due to that reason we strongly recommend you come prepared.
Bring lunches and snacks, a cooler with ice and plenty of water and/or good snacks. Remember that meets are held no matter the weather conditions and some meets do not have covered seating so it also a good idea to have on hand some of following items depending on the weather conditions:
Extra clothing, umbrellas, seat pads, blankets, collapsible chairs, sunglasses, pop-up tent, sunscreen, stop watches, binoculars, still and video cameras, and any other items you deem necessary.
There is normally a concession stand to purchase food and snacks at all meet sites. As the announcer calls out the event the athlete must report as instructed so you must listen closely.
However, never hesitate to ask questions.
