Happy New Year
by posted 01/02/2021


Greetings Track Fans!

Start the New Year right and get some runs in before Track on Jan 12th! I joined this Outdoor Virtual Challenge for the month of January. Check it out here https://runsignup.com/Race/VA/Fairfax/BackyardBrrrVirtualChallenge and join in the fun - we could have matching shirts!

Whether you join Backyard Brr or not- Get Out There! Starting with Day 1  of condition we will be working on building your aerobic base. It will be a much better experience if that is not your first day of running :) We will also be using jump ropes this year, so if you have one at home, dust it off and give it a whirl!

See you soon!

Welcome to FHS Track & Field 2021!
by posted 12/23/2020


Head Coach: Heather Alexander,  

Assistant Coach: Andy Swiston,  

Team Manager: Laura Briggs,  

Other volunteers: Volunteers are welcome to help administratively, accompany the team on workouts, or give instruction in a specific track or field event (trainer or assistant coach).

Practice Times and Locations: Athletes are expected to run on their own in addition to the 3 practices per week.

  • Tuesday: 3-5 PM, Redeeming Grace Church, 5200 Ox Rd, Fairfax
  • Thursday: 3-5 PM, RGC
  • Saturday: 9-11 AM, Westfield High School track, 4700 Stonecroft Blvd, Chantilly

Season:

Conditioning: Jan 12-Feb 20. The conditioning period is extended due to the long layoff for most athletes. Also, given all conditioning will be outdoors, it will only be held weather permitting, and will be called off if the temperature is less than 32 or windchill less than 25; or in case of moderate precipitation or frozen surfaces. 

Tryouts: Feb 23-Mar 6. Tryouts are less about running a certain speed and more for you to try out track as well as us to gauge your commitment. However, as the season progresses, time trials will determine top runners for certain meets.

Season: Mar 9-May 14. End date may depend on final meet schedule.

Meets: Held weekday afternoons or Saturdays. Number will vary depending on scheduling availability. Locations will vary from local to 1-2 hour drive. 

Events:

  • Sprint: 100/200/400, 100/300 hurdles
  • Middle distance: 400/800
  • Long distance: 1 Mile, 2 Mile. Cross Country: Athletes training toward this can attend meets if/when they arise (middle school: 2-mile, high school: 5k).
  • Field events: Long jump, shot put, discus

Costs: 

Registration fee: $30, must be paid before an athlete can participate in conditioning or tryouts.

Season fee: Final fee for the year will be determined based on budget and communicated during tryouts (fee in the past has been $180-$200). Once a spot on the team is offered, the athlete has 48 hours to accept the spot on the team by paying the fee.

Black singlets to be purchased in the Online Store for $22 once a spot on the team is accepted. Uniform is completed by a pair of entirely black shorts provided by the athlete.

COVID-19 Requirements:

We will follow the applicable requirements for Virginia and the VHSL, as well as those necessary for our permit from Fairfax County for the Westfield High track. See below for details.
