McLean Track and Field Tryout Information (2021-22)

 

TRYOUT SYSTEM: 

  • We will have a three day tryout 

  • Due to stricter limitations on meet entries and safety concerns we will limit the roster to around 40-50 boys and around 40-50 girls. We will reserve a certain number of spots for the top freshman, as well.

  • Just because you make a time does not mean that you make the team. It means you will be considered for the team.

 

TRYOUTS:

These distances will be performed throughout the week. You will have to make the time in at least one of the events to make the team. Please note that the qualifying standards for freshman is different from that of 10th - 12th graders. (Throwers are not required to make the running standard but must complete a 1600 meter run within 9:30)

EXPECTATIONS:  This is a varsity sport and attendance at practices and meets is MANDATORY. Failure to comply with practice and meet expectations may result in dismissal from the team..  Carefully consider your time commitments when deciding whether to try out for track.  We have practice every week day regardless of weather. Since we are making cuts, if you commit to the team, we have very high expectations!

 

PREPARATION: You MUST come to the first day of tryouts in shape and ready to run.  If you are not participating in a fall sport, here is a good workout schedule to get you started and ready for the first day of practice. Build slowly and stretch before and after the workout.  Follow this workout until the beginning of tryouts.

New Athlete Registration Form Requirement

Beginning Wednesday, November 4th, FCPS activities and athletic programs will transition to a new online student registration system.  This new system offers a host of benefits for schools and community members including:

  • One stop shop for registering your student for athletic programs and many common activities occurring throughout the school year
  • Electronic submission of the emergency care card and weight room waiver- only have to fill these out once!
  • A new home for the state-mandated concussion education program

 

Each family will create an account and from this account, can register their student(s) for various activity and athletic opportunities.  While registering does not guarantee a spot on the team, this information will help to ensure your student is ready to go on the first day of tryouts.  Students can be registered for one or more activities throughout the year and families can sign in as needed to update information.

 

Please note the following:

  • You will still need to submit a valid VHSL Pre-participation Exam Form (physical) directly to the school prior to your student’s participation; all other requirements will be completed through this registration process.
  • Families who have already submitted their concussion education verification form will be asked to verify completion again as part of the registration process.  We do apologize for any inconvenience- please bear with us as we make this change
  • Information on how to fill out the physical form and send it in can be found at: https://mcleanactivities.org/main/otherad/contentID/30271135
