Track and Field 2023
Students in grades 3-5 are invited to join Arrowhead’s Track Team! Our goal is to introduce students to Track and Field events while providing individual instruction to develop their skills. Teamwork, sportsmanship and leadership are always emphasized.
The registration fee for Elementary Sports is $35.00. NSD offers an online credit card payment program called Touchbase. You can access Touchbase at: https://www.nsd.org/schools/enrichment-activities/athletics/elementary-sports. Free and Reduced Lunch program qualifiers pay $0.00 and there will be no processing fee, and they will not be asked for a credit card number. (Contact Food Services at 425.408.7657 with questions regarding the FRL program.) A paper form is only required when paying with check, cash or unable to access the Touchbase system.
Each athlete needs to have an emergency card turned in before they may participate in a meet.
Begin on Tuesday, APRIL 4 on the field during lunch recess. Practices are Tuesdays and Thursdays. Please check in with the coaches at the beginning of each practice for instructions and safety. Also, 6 full practices are required in order to compete in a Track Meet.
Tuesdays at 5:00pm and run until about 6:00 pm. (see below)
Arrowhead will be hosting on May 9 at Kenmore Middle School. We need parent volunteers! Please email the coaches or sign up with link if you would like to help out at our home meet and/or at the Junior Olympics Track meet at Inglemoor High School on Tuesday, May 23 at 5:30PM
Transportation to Meets:
Arrangements are the responsibility of the student and their parents. See a coach if you need support or assistance with transportation. Students may “check out” and leave the meet when they have finished their last event.
