Directions to Rolesville
If you are even POSSIBLY interested in trying out for track, you MUST Notify Coach G by Feb 5 @ Http://Interest.Fastrams.me . Tryouts will be February 15.
Step 1: Notify Coach Grether of your interest by Feb 5.
Step 2: Complete the WCPSS Athletic Participation Forms @ Register.Fastrams.me (If you tried out for a fall or winter sport, you do not have to redo any of this paperwork)
Step 3: Turn in your Physical (online on the same registration site). Forms can be found @ Physical.Fastrams.me
YOU CANNOT WORKOUT OR TRYOUT UNTIL YOUR PAPERWORK HAS BEEN APPROVED BY THE TRAINER!!!
We are a championship program that produces State and National competitive athletes. We are looking for athletes who are willing to buy into our system and work to become the best athlete they can be, and to work together to win team championships at a Conference, Regional and State level. All Spots on the team are EARNED through tryouts.
Dates: February 14, 15, 16 (WINTER SPORT ATHLETES: Finish your winter season. A special tryout will be held once the playoffs are done for your fall sport). Athletes who want to be considered for running and jumping events must be present on ALL days of tryouts.
This is NOT middle school or club track. We are building a championship team that can compete to Win the NAC Conference (again) and begin to compete for a Regional and State Team Championship. You will be placed into the events that best meet your ability AND best fill the needs of the team to win a championship. This is decided by the Coaches based off your performance at tryouts.
Each day you will perform in a different task that tests your speed, strength, explosiveness and speed endurance. Just like a basketball player comes into a tryout knowing how to dribble a ball, and a baseball player knows how to swing a bat... a track athlete should come into tryouts in decent shape. The first day of tryouts should not be the first day you have ever worked out. The Rams Track coaches do not expect you to know to do the "special skills" like hurdle, throw shot/discus, or perform the jumps... but you should be able to complete and compete in the tryout activities.
Each event group has performance standards (Short sprints, long sprints, mixed sprints, distance, jumps, throws). Based on your times, you will be placed into the group where you have the best chance to grow into a successful athlete. If your times are well below any of our event groups, you will not make the team.
See Coach Grether in Room 4404 to sign up for the tryout dates.
Athletes are expected to workout 6-7 days a week, 1-2 times a day (depending on event and years of experience). If you make the team, we will formally meet together to practice Monday through Friday, 2:30-5pm RAIN OR SHINE (Unless Coach G announces otherwise). There are activity buses Mon through Thurs @ 5pm to help get people home. Over breaks or on weekends, there WILL be workouts athletes are expected to complete on their own.
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?
What if I don't know how to do all the skills (throw shot, hurdle, high jump, etc?)
What events will I participate in? Do I get to choose? What if I don't know...?
No news currently found.
