Track and Field Preseason Information

The 2021 Track & Field Season is quickly approaching; official start of practice is March 1st.


If you plan on running, jumping or throwing there are a couple things that you will need to get taken care of prior to the start of practice.

1. You must have your athletic paperwork filled out and returned to the main office. If you competed in a fall or winter sport you should already have this done. Reminder that you need new paperwork filled out every year so if you haven’t filled out paperwork for the 20-21 school year you will need to get this taken care of ASAP.

 

2. Sign up to receive informational text messages through the “Remind” app.  Because of how large the track team is you will need to sign up using the appropriate code below.

    1. If you are a BOY ATHLETE – text     @ontf21B     to the number    81010. Follow the prompts and make sure to use your real name. No nicknames.
    2. If you are a GIRL ATHLETE – text     @ontf21G     to the number    81010. Follow the prompts and make sure to use your real name. No nicknames.
    3. If you are a PARENT – text     @ontf21P     to the number    81010. Follow the prompts and make sure to use your real name. No nicknames.

 

3. Prior to the start of official practice we will be having conditioning sessions to get ready for the season.  If you are in a winter sport here at Olathe North, that is your priority and you should not attend any conditioning sessions.  If you are not currently participating though the expectation is that you make it to every conditioning session that you can.  Conditioning sessions have already started* and will continue until the season starts.

Conditioning sessions are split up by event group so we can have smaller groups as well as tailor workouts to your specific needs as an athlete.

  1. Sprints/Hurdles/Jumps Groups – Meet outside the library in the 400 hallway on Monday’s and Wednesdays; 3:30-4:30.  Wear a mask and bring clothes for both inside and outside.  It will be a game time decision as to whether we are inside or outside.
  2. Endurance/Long Distance Group – Meet in Room 015 on every day that school is in session.  Wear a mask and dress to run outside.  We will run outside every day so look at the weather and dress appropriately.
  3. Power/Throws Group – Meet outside the Weight Room on the benches on Monday’s and Wednesdays; 3:15 – 4:15.  Wear a mask and bring clothes for both inside and outside.  It will be a game time decision as to whether we are inside or outside.  (*The Power/Throws Group conditioning sessions will start Feb 1st.)

 

4. Invite your friends! The more people we have on the track & field team the more enjoyable it will be for everyone!  Even though the team tends to be on the larger end, there will be measures in place to make sure that everyone stays healthy.
