RRMS Track and Field
Track and Field Information for the 2018 Season:
Coaches: Dybowski (, Mental, Robinson, and Saksa.
Track begins on March 19 and goes until May 15 (subject to change). Attendance is crucial to prepare for the meets. If your child misses practice for an unexcused event, they will not be able to participate in the upcoming meet. Practice typically runs Monday-Thursday from 330-5PM and on Fridays from 330-430PM. There are typically two meets a week throughout April with some being relay or top competitors only. There are no meets or official practices during spring break. Before participating, athletes must have proper paperwork filled out and have paid their transportation fee. Please make note of the parent meeting (Wednesday March 14 @7pm RRMS) and let me, Coach Allison Dybowski, know if you or another guardian cannot attend. Thank you!  
1. Sign ups are ACTIVE. Please use the following link to sign your child up for Track and Field. (must be current 7th or 8th grader).  
2.  All paperwork MUST be filled out prior to practice. Where to find the paperwork? See the links to the right of this page. There are also hard copies of the Lindsay's Law form outside of Coach Dybowski's room B100.

7. Spirit wear orders will be send to the parent email address given in the sign up form the first day of practice. They will be due the following Monday, March 26.  
*Please make sure all forms are turned in prior to the first day of practice! See links to the right!
*Meet participation requires practice attendance. 
1. Come prepared for any weather. Bring a snack and water. Keep any medications (inhaler) with you at all times. Never use another's inhaler prescription.
2. Physical Form - All runners must have a physical on file. A new one is needed yearly. If you already have one on file from earlier this year there is no need to get another one. NO PHYSICAL MEANS NO PRACTICE. The physical packet includes the OHSAA code of conduct and concussion forms which also need to be done yearly.
3. Emergency Medical Authorization - Must be filled out and signed by a parent/ guardian. All RRCS students have already done this at the beginning of the year.
4. All parents and athletes must read and turn in a Lindsay's Law form.
