Permission and Medical Packet is due to the nurse's office before practicing with the team.  Newcomers are always welcome to join the team anytime during the season, but understand that they will be a wait time as the paperwork processes through both the school nurse's office and the school doctor.

Practice Schedule: Season practices will include a combination of practices at the middle school (3:00-3:45) or high school (3:30-4:30).  Please check back on this site for practice and meet schedules and follow us on twitter, where the schedule will be posted each week. The schedule will be posted weekly on the website as well as posted on twitter. Students should wear supportive running shoes to prevent injuries.  Bring extra sweats to keep warm in the early part of the season. Bring a labeled or identifiable water bottle. If you are riding your bike to track practice or meets at the high school, lock up bicycles and leave valuables at home.

Meet Information: The team will compete in Colonial Conference dual meets as well as additional championship meets. The season meets are listed on the "schedule" tab. All team members are invited to participate in our three home meets.  Team members will qualify to participate in away meets and championship meets.

Team T-Shirts: The online store will be available for a limited window during March.  More information is posted in the "Team Uniform/Gear" post.  

Practice/Meet Cancelations: Cancelations or changes to the schedule (such as cancelation due to rain) will be announced to the students before the end of the school day and posted on the team website. They will also be tweeted out on our Twitter account: @HMSTrackXC  and sent in a Remind alert (information on signing up for Remind text messages, above).
