• MIDDLE SCHOOL BOYS' and GIRLS' Track and Field

    Welcome to WESD Middle School Boys' and Girls' TRACK AND FIELD! Please click here to view Parent Resources and Forms for Middle School Boys' and Girls' Track and Field.  


    Middle School 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:

    Tryouts are typically in  April.  Meets begin in late April.  Each Middle School has a 7th Grade Boys' and Girls' Team and an 8th Grade Bouys' and Girls' Team. 

    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)

    Relay Events:

    4 x 100 Meter Relay and 4X 400 Meter Relay

    Field Events:

    Discus, Shot Put, Long Jump and High Jump

    The five Middle Schools participate in hosting each other and playing away at their respective local high schools. In total, 5 meets, including the Championship Meet whre the K-8 schools may join in.  (Note: the 2023 season will only have 3 meets due to the number of High Schools upgrading their stadiums to turf)

    Who Participates:

    Track and Field is not a tryout sport,  All who wish to play need to show up to practices, 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. 

    Each Middle School has a 7th Grade Girls' and Boys', and an 8th Grade Girls' and Boys' Teams.  Four teams.  

    Cholla, Desert Foothills, Mountain Sky, Palo Verde, and Royal Palm

    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.
