GOHS Track Meet: Click for more information and future dates.

 

Here is a flyer for this event  

 
Parents and athletes,
 
Hope you are doing well!  If you are looking to do something different, come and try out Track this Saturday. Please ask your students if they would like to participate in some all-comers track meets?   When they say all-comers everyone can participate. Whether you are two years old and can run in a straight line or you are 100 years old you can run too.  
 
 On Saturday December 11th at Great Oak High School there will be an all-comers track meet. 
 The meet starts at 9AM. If you want to run the 1500M then be there at 8AM. The last event ends around noon depending on the number of   participants.  I will be in attendance to help.
 
Entry fees for athletes $10.00 and $5.00 for spectators.
 
 
 
400 Meters = 1 lap on the track
 
Here are the running events:  1500 Meters     60M HURDLES      150 Meters     60 Meters      Sprint Medley Relay (100-100-200-400)            Mixed 4 x 400 Meter RELAY           4 x 800m RELAY        300 Meter    3000 Meter      4 x 200 Meter RELAY
 
For distance runners: I would recommend 1500 meters first  0R 3000 meters  OR form a relay and run 4 X 800 meter race.
For sprinters: I would recommend 60 Meters OR 150 Meters or 300 Meters
 
If you play other sports, this is the sport that will make you a better athlete. For example in the NFL 88% percent of players were two sport athletes and 59% of them did TRACK as their second sport.   This also applies significantly to other sports as well.
 
FIELD EVENTS: I would only recommend long jump for middle schoolers at this time. If you are interested in Shot Put or Discuss a parent should be with the athlete.
