Track & Field Co-Ed (5-8)


Sunset Ridge Track - General Information

Track season starts Tuesday, March 17, 2020. All 5th-8th grade boys and girls can join. The schedule is still being finalized. Please check back mid-February.

Physicals: Students participating must have a current physical on file with our school nurse, Mrs. Curry.

  • Physical Forms are good for one year from the date of issue.
  • Students may not practice with the team without a physical.

Practices: All practices are 3:30 - 4:45 pm at Sunset Ridge School.

  • The full practice schedule will be posted in late February, but the first week of practice is listed on the Athletics calendar.
  • Please dress for the weather. We will run outside most days unless it is raining/snowing or too cold. Students should wear properly-fitting running shoes. Wearing layers is a good idea: shorts, leggings/athletic pants, tee-shirt, and a sweatshirt or fleece.

PLEASE plan to pick students up promptly at 4:45pm. Students cannot be left unsupervised after practice, so we ask that you arrange transportation accordingly.

Track Meets: The track meet schedule is still being finalized, but meets will begin after Spring Break.

  • Most track meets will be at New Trier West (N.T.W.) Check the Athletics Calendar for complete details.
  • Meets will begin about 4:00 pm, and we anticipate being back at Sunset Ridge around 5:30pm. Students and coaches will travel to and from NTW on a bus. I
  • If you prefer, you may pick up your child from the meet, but you must pick up your child before the bus returns to school. No student will be left at NT without the team.

We are aware that many children are actively participating in more than one program, and/or have other commitments such as doctor appointments, religious obligations, etc., and need to leave early from practice and/or track meets. Our policy on taking your child home during a practice/meet is to sign your child out from our attendance sheet. If your child is getting a ride from another family, we need to have  verbal or written permission from the parent of the child in need of the ride.

At the conclusion of each practice and track meet, we ask that each child be picked up in a timely manner as the coaches cannot leave until all students have been picked up.

Go Eagles!!!
