Girls Winter Track
Distance Training Cycle #1 is HERE.
You can find all necessary forms and team paperwork HERE. These are required (!) – get them in ASAP
Haverford High School Girls Winter Track
Rules and Regulations
Our collective goal is that all members of the team practice and compete to achieve better performance. The improvement of the athlete improves the team. I expect commitment to the team and yourself, honest effort, and fun this season! Treat each other and the coaches with respect at all times.
Have you been receiving my emails? If not, let me know ASAP –
I ask that ALL students download the app on their smartphone called Remind. It is blue with a white speech bubble logo and makes safe communication possible between teachers/coaches and students.
Join the group @havwtrack to receive my text updates, whether they are in advance or last minute (for example, “The track bus will be leaving in 5 minutes in front of the school.”)
You can “chat” me personally to let me know of any conflicts or questions you may have at any time.
Parents are welcome to join the group as well
Forms – STUDENTS MAY NOT PRACTICE WITHOUT RETURNING THE FOLLOWING:
PIAA – Fill out the full packet (bring to a Doctor as part of a physical) if your child has not played a sport yet this school year; Only Section 7 is required if she already has participated this year. o Eligibility o Student Athletic Contract o Assumption of Risk o Survey from Miss Llerandi
If a student will miss a practice, she should notify me by 2:30 p.m. on the day of the practice (via Remind, an email, stopping by Room 140, etc). Please do not have a friend give me the message unless you are unable.
Athletes should be present at practice the day before a meet if they expect to compete. If a student knows that she will miss a meet, she must notify me ASAP, preferably 2-‐3 days before the meet. The lineup will be shared a few days prior. If the athlete is entered and does not attend, she will not be entered in the next two meets. o Students will compete in meets only if they are consistent with attending the majority of practices and notifying me in advance of absences or conflicts.
All members must be passing TWO MAJOR SUBJECTS in order to remain eligible to
participate in interscholastic competition. This is enforced at HHS through weekly eligibility checks. o If an athlete is ineligible at the end of a marking period, she will remain ineligible
for the next TEN school days. At the end of the ten days, her grades will be reviewed and she can then return to competition if she is passing two major subjects. o Athletes are always allowed to ask their teachers for help or makeup work.
The use of any drugs, excluding those prescribed by a doctor, is strictly prohibited. The use of alcohol, smoking and chewing tobacco products, drugs or steroids, is prohibited. Violation of these rules will result in the suspension of a member from the team until the review of her case.
November 16 – February 15. States are at PSU on February 23 & 24. o Monday through Friday, usually 3:00 – 5:00 p.m. Meet in the hallway outside Room 126.
YOU MUST BE APPROPRIATELY DRESSED (FOR INSIDE AND/OR OUTSIDE) AND ON
TIME TO PRACTICE. If you have a conflict or meeting, send me a text on the Remind app or an email. There will be no use of cell phones at practice. Please feel free to keep your belongings in my locked classroom, Room 140, during practice. o Weight room – TBA o Practice will include any combination of drills, track workouts (sprints or distance), mobility and plyometrics, core, weight lifting, and stretching.
Our meet schedule is included in the back your packet of forms and on this site. o Meet entries will be determined by attendance, effort, and times. o If a student would like to compete in a specific event, she should communicate early and often. Everyone is expected to stay at meets to support the team until it is over If a student is to take other means of transportation home, this is to be communicated in writing prior to the end of the meet.
Students will be issued uniforms as close to their size as possible. They will need
to keep track/take care of, wash and return these uniforms.
Our team gear online store through C&M Sporting Goods will be available soon via
email. o I am requesting that each athlete purchase a pullover quarter zip to help us look
uniform on meet days. It should not cost more than $35.
We will have periodic activities to boost team bonding; among them will be team dinners and they will either be held in a “potluck” style, contributing to a food order, or meeting somewhere outside of school. o If any parent would like to offer to host a dinner prior to a meet, please let me know.
Any parent who is willing to lend a hand with any of the above, please let me know. Your help is so much appreciated!!
