Track and Field

  1. What is the schedule and when do pactices start?

    Please visit our NEWS section for updated and information.
  2. Where and when are then practices?

    Team practices will be held at the SEAS soccer / softball fields. All kids will practice at the same time. We will have workstations for sprints, long distance, long jump, softball throw and general areas to practice relays. The kids will rotate around to all stations.

    The SEAS team consists of age / gender groups. Each group will have their own coach, who may schedule additional practices (i.e. to work on relays). Relay practice, high jump training, and advanced training will likely be scheduled at Brandeis High School.

  3. What events are held?

    Track & Field includes several weeks of practice and guaranteed participation in the Zone VI meet. Each child may participate in the 2-events of their choice (see list below for available events per age group and gender), plus a relay if selected for the relay team. Relays consist of 8 participants (or 4 for MITE and older) and up to 2 alternates. Relay participation will be determined by try-outs that will be scheduled after the practices have begun.

    Events include:
    • TOT boys: 400m relay (8x50m), 400m, 60y, 50y, 40y, standing long jump, running long jump
    • TOT girls: 400m relay (8x50m), 400m, 60y, 50y, 40y, standing long jump, softball throw
    • TINY boys: 400m relay (8x50m), 400m, 60y, 50y, 40y, standing long jump, running long jump, high jump
    • TINY girls: 400m relay (8x50m), 400m, 60y, 50y, 40y, standing long jump, running long jump, softball throw
    • PEE WEE boys: 400m relay (8x50m), 400m, 75y, 50y, 40y, standing long jump, running long jump, high jump
    • PEE WEE girls: 400m relay (8x50m), 400m, 75y, 50y, 40y, standing long jump, running long jump, softball throw
    • MITE boys: 400m relay (4x100m), 800m, 100y, 75y, 50y, standing long jump, running long jump, high jump

    **SEAS does not have high jump equipment but kids can train at Brandeis high school.
    ***SEAS track is also open to Cub and Junior participation.

    Any child finishing in 1st or 2nd place in an individual even or relay team at the Zone meet will qualify to go to the City meet.

  4. Do you need coaches and how can I help?

    Please volunteer to help coach! We rely on your support to make this an efficient operation. We will assign coaches for each group and coaches for each event.

    Additional help from parents during practices is encouraged (i.e. holding the finish line tape, marking distances on jumps and softball throws, lining up kids for an event, herding kids from one station to the next.

  5. What is the track meet?

    The Zone VI track meet is an all-day event, opening at 8am and finishing at 6pm. A schedule will be given out prior to the meet with the times for each event. Parents and kids may come and go as necessary according to the schedule.

    Last year there were 500 kids participating at the Zone VI track meet. SEAS was the second largest team with 94 kids.

    Anyone finishing 1st or 2nd place in the Zone meet will qualify for the City meet. The City meet is nearly an all-day event, but because of the qualification requirements there are fewer kids at the City meet. Last year SEAS qualified kids in 28 different individual events and 4 relay teams. Half of our kids qualified for the City meet.

  6. Are there uniforms and what should my child wear to practice?

    SEAS will provide a uniform consisting of a t-shirt. For practices, running shoes are recommended. For the track meet(s), some footwear is banned (cleats, track spikes, track shoes with the spikes removed, water socks, bare feet...are NOT allowed!).
