II. Philosophy
The philosophy of GlenOak Track and Field is to coach each athlete to strive for personal improvement and to reach his/her fullest potential. By doing so, the team still reaches its fullest potential in its pursuit of excellence. It is our goal to have the athletes peak during the championship phase at the end of the season. In order to do this, the basics of the sport must first be understood, so the more complex tasks may then be accomplished. We take into consideration an individual athlete’s ability, attitude, and strengths in relationship to the team. In doing so, we believe that it is our duty to put the best team on the track.
III. Code of Conduct

Read it carefully. It can affect your eligibility in more than just track and field. Your actions outside school can affect your participation as well.

IV. Physical Exams

Each athlete must have a physical exam on record in the athletic office in order to compete.

V. Eligibility

OHSAA regulations to be eligible states: you must be currently enrolled in a member school and have received passing grades in a minimum of Five (5) one credit classes, or the equivalent, in the immediately preceding grading period.

VI. Attendance
Practice is where excellence is achieved and improvement is made”

  • Attendance is mandatory.

  • Three unexcused absences is grounds for team dismissal.

  • You have the phone numbers...if you know you will not be there call or bring a

note the day before a known absence.

VII. Daily Practice
Purpose: To condition and build technical and event specific skills needed in track and field.
Where: GlenOak High School at the GlenOak Stadium.

Time: 2:45– 5:30pm


We practice and compete in RAIN and SNOW. Bring clothes for all types of weather.
You will need the following:
running shoes* extra socks LOCK

hat gloves rain gear

sweat shirt and pants shorts t-shirt

  • Running Shoes- Get a good pair. They will help keep you injury free.

VIII. Equipment and Facilities

Take responsibility and care of all equipment at practice and meets. We are privileged and fortunate to have a facility to call our own. Take care and respect all facilities and rules.

IX. Personal Health
It is important that athletes remain healthy throughout the season. This will require a proper diet and the proper amount of rest. Learn to budget time and other activities so that you are not overworked.
X. Injuries

Report all injuries to a coach as soon as they are noticed. We cannot help if we don’t know it exists.

The school has a certified trainer that is available throughout the week. If your child has a hard time seeing the trainer, call the athletic director (See Important #’s).

If a doctor is seen for an injury, a doctor’s note for release must be provided for reinstatement.

XI. Meets

All athletes will compete in dual meets. Invitationals and relay meets allow 2 entries and 1 relay per event; therefore, entries will be determined by finish places, times and coaches. Coaches will determine all line-ups for meets. We will determine in what the athlete competes; the athlete will determine if he/she competes based on attendance, attitude and practice performance.

Transportation is provided to and from all meets. Athletes are expected to ride the bus. Of course there are special circumstances.

  • Athletes are only permitted to ride home with their own parents or guardian.

  • Athletes are expected to remain at home and away dual meets until the conclusion of the team meeting following all events.

“ The day before, the day before”- It is most important to carbo-load and rest properly two days before a meet. We suggest a pasta meal for carbo-loading and to stay away from greasy foods the day before and day of competition.

The day of a meet, we suggest the athletes bring a snack of fruit or something light for before and between competitions.


Uniforms must be school issue and returned to the school at the end of the season.

  • Only plain white shirts may be worn underneath singlet tops. There may only be one visible brand logo. Underarmour has two logos. No designs or writing or different color thread seams may be visible.

  • Only black compression shorts or black leggings may be worn under the shorts of a uniform.

  • Shorts may not be rolled.

  • All competitors must start with shirts tucked in.

  • No jewelry or spirit bands (like Livestrong) may be worn during competition.

  • No metal or hard plastic may be worn in the hair

Warm-ups, sweatshirts, hats and gloves may be purchased by the athletes to keep.
XII. Lettering
Earning a Letter is accomplished by scoring eight (8) points during the season in either dual, invitational or relay meets. Performance standards may be used in special circumstances.

It is an expectation that all athletes will complete the season to their fullest capabilities and fulfil their obligation to the team. If this is not done, a letter may not be awarded.

XIII. School Records
1. School records will only be recognized for running events where Fully Automatic Timing (FAT) is used. Hand times must be five tenths (.5) of a second better.

2. School Records will not be accepted if races on straightaways and jumps are wind aided. If an anemometer is not available, the coaches will make the determination if a record will be accepted.
