• Welcome to WESD 7-8 grade  Boys' and Girls' TRACK AND FIELD! Please click here to view Parent Resources and Forms for K-8 (7-8 grade) School Boys' and Girls' Track and Field.  


            Boys' and Girls' Track and Field includes multiple competitive events where student athletes refine their skills in practices and competition.  Team work, commitment, and dedication to improve throughout the season are nurtured by their coaches.  Many competitive High School Athletes have come out of WESD Track and Field programs.  

            Typical Start Date:

            Physical education units are typically taught in April.  The WESD 7/8 Track and Field Meet is usually in late April or early May.  Each school which has  7th and 8th Grade Girls and Boys' can create a Boys' and Girls' Team to participate.  

            Typical End Date:

            The Boys' and Girls' District Championship Meet takes place during the first or second week of May.  Unless a team signs up for an outside tournament, that is the end of their season.  


            Practices at the Schools.

            There are four running events, two relay events, and four field events.

            Running Events:

            100 Meter, 200 Meter, 400 Meter, and 1600 Meter (Mile)

            The five Middle Schools and seven K-8 schools may participate in the WESD 7/8 grade Championship track and Field Meet.

            Who Participates:

            Track and Field is not a tryout sport,  All who wish to play need to show up to practices, participate in P.E. units, and work hard, and learn how to compete in their events.  Coaches may have athletes tryout for specific events, if the interest is more than can participate in a meet.  Tryouts are based on skills of the events.  Other factors taken into account during tryouts - grades, behavior, communication, sportsmanship, and good team work.   Typically, teams can have up to 30 athletes. 

            Prior training:

            Track and Field is highly competitive.  Having previous experience is helpful for being the representative for the school in certain events.  Anyone interested should practice the fundamental skills.
