Sprint Practice Times
We have over 100 students who wish to participate in Sprints. Coach Slaw created a system to allow everyone the opportunity to participate.
Thursday is FULL team practice. Coach Slaw will hold time trials to determine who will be on the A Team for the next weeks'meet. B Team athletes will have a list of activities to complete at home to prepare for the next weeks, Thursday's Time Trails. You are NOT guaranteed a spot. You MUST race each week to qualify for a position in the next weeks' meet. Remember athletes MUST be - SMART, KIND, KNIGHTS! If an athlete does not meet those standards, they will be removed from the weekly team and jeopardize their standing on the team.
SMART - Athletes MUST be eligible!
KIND - Athletes MUST follow ALL school rules in and out of school
KNIGHTS - Embody our culture and push themselves to succeed in all they do

BJHS Track and Field Protocols for Attendance, Discipline, and Eligibility
Attendance at all practices is expected. If you are unable to attend practice due to an illness, medical appointment or family emergency, you or your parent or guardian must notify a coach prior to the practice to be missed. Regular practice attendance is a factor that will be used to determine meet eligibility and unapproved absences may result in less competitive meet opportunities. Practices the day immediately prior to a meet are especially important as critical information is often reviewed during this pre-meet practice. Please ask one of your coaches if you need any additional information or have specific questions regarding practice attendance policies.
We expect track athletes to uphold the highest levels of conduct while at school and during practice. The following protocol will be used to address egregious violations of school codes of conduct:
Incident 1: Conversation with student and parent notification
Incident 2: Conference with student and parent - Possible meet suspension
Incident 3: Possible removal from the team
Please make sure to stay academically eligible. Eligibility is posted by teachers on Friday afternoon and runs Saturday through Saturday. Failure in just one class makes you ineligible for the entire week. Three incidences of ineligibility will result in removal from the team. Please let your coaches know if you are struggling with any of your classes and we will work with you to help support you!
