    The Southern Middle School Track & Field is an absolute privilege.  Students will be exposed to the basic disciplines and techniques in the sport of track & field.  Once you accept membership, you will represent the team and SMS as a whole.  This team is exclusively for students who want to be a part of something that is fun as well as self-improving.  All rules of Southern Middle School apply.  Actions that are counterproductive to the team will result in loss of membership.

    Track team members should be in decent physical and mental health in order to participate.  It’s required to have a current physical and concussion form in order to start.  Grades and attendance will be checked periodically as well.  If grades start to fall, there will be a conversation between the student and myself about the future and team membership.

    Since the middle school does not have their own facilities, the track and field team will be sharing the Southern High School facilities and equipment.  Practices will be held after school daily unless specified differently or canceled and generally go from 3:30-4:45pm.  Pick up will be at the back gate of the high school stadium, nearest to the high school baseball by 5pm.  Practice attire should remain similar to gym clothing and should be weather appropriate.
