• Track

    The 2019 Track season begins on Monday, April 8, 2019.  A preseason information meeting will take place sometime during March, prior to Spring Break. 
    Eligibility paperwork may be gotten from the Athletics web link at www.9mile.org and/or from the main office.  All track athletes are required to complete and return a "Track Safety Guidelines" sheet, and any track athletes who have not participated in a school sport this year must fill out all eligibility forms (including a doctor's physical if a current one is not on file in the main office).  All eligibility paperwork must be completed and on file in the main office for athletes to be eligible to practice.

    Track at Lakeside Middle School is open to 7th and 8th graders only. HOWEVER, there may be a two-day special "Field Day" where 6th-grade boys and girls will be permitted to participate.  LMS used to allow all 6th graders interested to participate in track, but most other league schools do not permit 6th-grade track participation.  

    Schedule can be found on the "Sports Schedules" link under "LMS Athletics" page

    General Information
    Track season begins on the first day after Spring Break of school each year. 
    To be eligible to practice on the first turn-out day, athletes MUST have all eligibility paperwork on file with the school office.  ASB and Transportation/Activity fees MUST be paid by the time of the first game for a player to participate in game action (ASB - $20, Transportation/Activity - $60). 
    Track athletes MUST participate in 8 practices before being permitted to compete in a meet.  All practices are held at Lakeside Middle School from 2:30pm - 4:45pm daily. 
    Occasionally, there will be a practice or Lakeside High School track meet at Lakeside High School that Lakeside Middle School track athletes will be expected to attend.  In the event this occurs, a shuttle bus will be provided for the athletes, and they will be expected to be picked up at Lakeside High School at the practice"s or meet"s end.  NO shuttle bus will transport athletes back to Lakeside Middle School. 
    All home meets will be held at Lakeside High School at 4pm.  There is sometimes an occasional 3:30pm meet start.  Just like practices and high-school meets held at Lakeside High School, middle-school track athletes will be expected to be picked up at there.  Please see your athlete's schedule and/or check this site for updates.  Typically most track meets will be on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
    Teams return from away-game sites at various times, so please look at your athlete"s schedule for an approximate return and/or wait for your athlete"s cell-phone call from the bus on the way home from the game.
