Hamburg Modified Track and Field
Goals: The goal of the Modified Track & Field program is to develop responsibility, respect, sportsmanship, and work ethic while developing and improving track and field skills. The focus of our program is to improve personal performance in a variety of events. The ECIC rules allow for a modified athlete to participate in a maximum of 3 events. The ECIC rules prohibit us from scoring modified meets. Student athletes must have completed 15 practices prior to participating in a meet.
Practice and Meets: All practices and meets are mandatory. Practices start at 2:30 and the end time will range from 3:30 to 4:00. There may be an occasional practice that ends in time for the students to ride the 3:45 bus. All team members are expected to stay for the duration of the practice and track meets. As a representative of the Hamburg Central School district every team member will be respectful of all coaches, officials, teammates, and opponents.
Excused Absences: If there is an academic concern and the student/athlete is staying with a teacher for academic support, the student must report back to practice with a signed pass from the teacher.
Unexcused Absence: Failure to notify the coach of an excused absence or failure to attend a practice will result in dismissal from the modified track team.
Transportation: ECIC policy requires all students to ride to and from athletic meets on school supplied transportation. Students who wish to ride home with their parents or legal guardian must be signed out on the coach’s sign-out board. The sign-out board will be made available at the completion of the track meet.
Track Uniform: Once the team has been selected, information will be provided on cost of the uniform (t-shirt and shorts).
