Remember what fun the Tennyson Track and Field team had last year? Well, we’re gearing up for another exciting season starting Monday, March 30 at 8 am sharp!
Registration form here
What does the Track and Field team do?
Students learn and practise track and field skills such as running (individual and relay), jumping (long jump and high jump) and throwing (shot put for intermediate students). Mini-meets are fun events held at Vancouver parks and schools. Intermediate students have the opportunity to participate in mini-meets for events they have been practicing. Primary students participate in fun meets at the school.
A coach from the Thunderbird Track and Field Club will work with our team likely next week, so be sure to get your registration forms in asap.
When do we show up?
Just like last year, practises are Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 8 til 8:50 am before school (rain or shine). Practises will not take place on holidays or pro-d days.
Who can participate?
All Tennyson K-7 students may participate in practises, no experience is necessary. Students in K to grade 2 will require a parent to stay with them for the duration of the practises.
How does my child sign up?
Registration is free and forms are available right here and a few paper copies will be available outside the school office. Please return the forms to the marked mail slot outside the school office before your child’s first practise.
How can I help?
The Track and Field team is run by Tennyson parents and we need many of you to make this a successful activity. Whether you have athletic background or not - we need your help! Please pitch in by helping out at one of the stations (long jump, relay, shot put, high jump) or offering to drive to the meets when the call goes out. Please come out and talk to head coach, Jacqueline Crummey, or one of the coach-parents, and they’ll make sure your talents aren’t wasted!
