Winter Track Basic Info

Track Sign Up

If you are even POSSIBLY interested in trying out for track, you MUST sign up at @ Signup.Fastrams.me 

Step 1: Complete the WCPSS Athletic Participation Form @ Register.Rolesvillehs.com 

Step 2: Turn in your Physical (or have an active one on file from the past 395 days). Forms can be found @ Physical.Fastrams.me  

Track Tryouts

Track Tryouts will begin Wednesday Oct 30, Thursday, Oct 31,  AND Possibly Monday Nov 4  - from 2:30 until 5pm.  Cuts will be made based on performance. 

If you are in a fall sport (Football, Volleyball, Cheer), you will finish that sport into the post-season. ONCE THE SPORT IS DONE, there will be a special tryout.  After tryouts, those who played a fall sport who make the track team will take a 1-2 week break and will then begin training.  If you have specific questions, see Coach Grether in Room 4404.

Winter Track Obligations & Expectations

  • Each event group has expectations.
    • Sprints/Jumps/Distance: 4 Days per week until 3:45pm. Sprinters & Jumpers MUST be in attendance M, Tu, Thur (Speed/Power days). If needing to work, arrange for Non-Meet Wed or Fri. Dr Appts = Parent must Notify Coach the day before (unless emergency).
      Throws: 5 days per week. 
  • Required Purchases: Aquire the Uniform Tank Top/Bottom from Shop.FastRams.me  .This is due to the large numbers on the team (even with cuts) and the unpredictable shirt sizes. Athletes get to keep the tank top uniforms and they are used in the Winter, Spring and for Cross Country. No other purchases are required (although, spiked shoes are recommended - especially for Sprinters and Jumpers).
  • Practice Behavior. Obey Coach Grether's training program, including seeking to live a Championship Lifestyle with your sleeping and eating habits. A diet plan will be provided, as well as body-care recommendations.

    Must be a purely positive, family friendly environment. No foul mouthing, bullying or negativity allowed.
  • Tardy.  Practice starts @ 2:40 sharp (Pass required if late). Athletes will “pay” for admission into practice by picking up 1 grocery bag full of trash from the busses and around campus if they are unexcused late. Two tardies = 1 missed practice
  • Communication. Read the weekly newsletter every Sunday + respond to any necessary messages from Coach.
  • Fundraiser. Families will participate and contribute your time, effort to raise funds for training equipment, etc for the team.

Winter Track Frequently Asked Questions

Does Everyone Make the Team?

No. Everyone does not make the team. There will be cuts this season.

How are tryouts determined? Do I need to show up in shape?

  • An athlete must come to Wed, Thu, and Mon's tryout or else they will be automatically cut.
  • Tryouts are determined by performance, place on team, and how close an athlete is to being able to be competitive in the Winter/Spring races.
  • A Basketball player does not show up to a tryout, asking how to dribble a basketball. A baseball player does not show up to a tryout asking how to hold a bat. So... a track athlete should not show up asking how to get started with running. A track athlete should show up in-shape, ready to move their body from "in shape" to "Championship shape." A track athlete should show up ready to compete for a spot on the team.

What if I don't know how to do all the skills (throw shot, hurdle, high jump, etc?)

  • While an athlete is expected to show up to tryouts in shape, we do not expect athletes to know all the skills for the unique events in track. We have an able coaching staff who has produced champions in every event (other then Pole Vault) who is ready to take in-shape athletes and teach them the unique skill sets needed to be successful.

What events will I participate in? Do I get to choose? What if I don't know...?

  • Coach Grether will decide what events you will participate in.  Rolesville High School is a Championship program seeking to build athletes that can compete on the Regional, State and National levels. We know the traits and qualities of what kind of athletes become successful at which events. This is not like Middle School track where athlete got to pick their event groups. The tryouts will gather data about your speed, strength, power, speed endurance, endurance, flexibility and mobility. Based on these numbers, athletes who make the cut will be offered an invitation to a particular event group.  You can choose to accept the offer or reject the offer. 

What if I don't make the cut for Winter? Can I tryout again in the spring?

  • Yes. Coach Grether will provide a training plan that you can follow that will increase your strength, speed, power and endurance. If you invest into building these qualities, you can come back and compete to earn a spot on the team in the spring.
