Every year we compete against the other Gadsden City Elementary Schools in a one-day track and field event. The event will take place sometime after Spring Break. Track tryouts will begin the last week of September. There's not a sign-up sheet. Any student can tryout. The track meet will be held during the school day and will not interfere with any activities outside of school. Tryouts are for 2nd-5th grade students. I will let everyone know who made the track team right before Thanksgiving break. When trying out for an event your child MUST wear gym shorts, gym pants (no sweatpants), or leggings along with athletic shoes and a comfortable t-shirt. The events that are available to tryout for are the 50 meter run, 100 meter run, 200 meter run, 400 meter run, softball throw, running long jump, and standing long jump. The 800 meter run will be based off of the pacer test from fitness testing due to time restraints. Tryouts will take place during their PE time. Students are not allowed to change clothes during PE. They are welcome to come with gym shorts on underneath their pants.
I will let everyone know who made the track team right before Thanksgiving break. Thank you for all who tried out. I am proud of each student who tried out because you did your very best. For the ones who didn't make it I encourage you to tryout next year. If you are a 5th grader I encourage you to not let it stop your dreams of playing a sport in middle school.

If your child makes the track team there will be a $10 fee for a track shirt.
