This year there are 11 events (100M, 200M, 400M, 800M, 1600M, 4x100 relay, 4x200 relay, high jump, long jump, shot put, and discus). Student/Athletes will have the opportunity to try any event at least once during the season.
The weather can be unpredictable here in Albuquerque. All athletes need to bring water to practice and wear appropriate workout attire (shirt, shorts, running shoes with socks, warm up top and warm up bottoms-(mandatory attire!) Workout gear must follow GMS dress-code policy.
All athletes will ride APS-provided buses to the meets. The buses will depart from Grant at 3:30. Athletes may leave the meet with a parent/guardian once their events are complete.
Athletes will be permitted to leave the meet under two conditions:
a signed transportation liability form is on file and
a parent/guardian has signed out their athlete with an assistant coach.
Athletes will only be released to parents/guardians listed on the transportation liability form. All other athletes will ride the bus back to Grant at the end of the track meet. Athletes will call parents/guardians with an estimated arrival time after boarding the buses. Any athletes who are not picked up within 15 minutes of the bus arriving back to Grant will not be eligible to compete at the next week's track meet.
