Roosevelt Track and Field 2022
The Roosevelt 2022 track and field season starts in March. The exact start date will be announced soon. Any current Roosevelt student interested in participating in track and field should pick up all the required forms in the office or print them from this site. Practices will begin in March and track meets are held on Thursdays starting in April and continue until the Middle School District Meet in May. Practice will be four days/week — Monday – Thursday (until Thursday track meets start in April), 3:45-5:00 or 5:30pm each day. Student athletes must be present at no less than two practices during the week to participate in that week’s track meet. Our team is open to all – experienced track and field athletes and beginners, as well.
State law requires that student-athletes complete sports physical exams every two years when participating in athletics. Therefore, if the athlete’s last sports physical examination expires before the end of the season in late May, 2022, a new one must be completed before any participation, either in practices or in meets, is permitted. So, if your student-athlete’s last sports examination occurred prior to May 26, 2020, then you should get them scheduled for a sports physical now so there will be no delay in starting practices in March with the rest of the team. Copies of the sports physical are available here or in the Roosevelt office. The sports physical forms, completed and signed by your student-athlete’s medical care provider, should be submitted to the school office, along with all of the other required forms, found here. Hard copies of all required forms are also available in the Roosevelt office.
School District 4J charges a $100 per student-athlete participation fee to cover the costs of running the middle school track and field program in Eugene School District 4J. We ask that each family pay as much as they are able. Partial and full scholarships are available based upon individual/family need. WE DO NOT WANT MONEY TO PREVENT ANYONE FROM PARTICIPATING! Contact the school secretary (541-790-8544) for information about scholarships. In addition, donations to cover Roosevelt track team jerseys, tee shirts and equipment will be greatly appreciated. All checks should be made payable to Roosevelt.
Proof of insurance is required for all student-athletes. If your student is not fully covered by insurance carried by the parent/guardian, then inquire in the Roosevelt office about School Time student accident insurance available through Myers-Stevens & Toohey. Application forms are available online.
There are also numerous opportunities for parents to volunteer. Information about volunteering is included in the packet of track and field forms found here.
Being part of the track team at Roosevelt is important in a variety of ways. First, it provides a healthy activity that many of our students need in our current world of technology and video games. Second, it teaches each athlete the importance of being part of a team. Finally it gives our students a chance to connect and foster positive, supporting relationships with people, both students and staff, they may not normally interact with during the regular school day.
Required paperwork is available here or in the Roosevelt office. All completed forms must be turned in at the office before students may begin practice. If you have questions, please contact the school secretary, Karen Kingzett, 541-790-8544 or email@example.com.
