Track & Field Co-Ed (6-8)

Sunset Ridge Track - General Information

The track season will start on March 18th. All 6th-8th grade boys and girls can join. There will be a short informational meeting on March 6th at 8:00 AM and 3:30 PM. Please attend one of the meetings if you are interested in joining the team.

* The schedule will be posted soon on the Sunset Ridge School Athletics calendar.*

Physicals: Students participating must have a current physical on file with our school nurse, Mrs. Balici.

  • Physical Forms are good for one year from the date of issue.
  • Students may not practice with the team without a physical.

Practices: All practices are 3:30 - 4:45 pm at Sunset Ridge School on Mondays - Thursdays.

  • The full practice schedule is posted, but there may be changes. Please check the calendar on a regular basis.
  • Please dress for the weather. Some days feel more like winter than spring.
  • Students should wear properly fitting running shoes. Wearing layers is a good idea: shorts, leggings/athletic pants, t-shirt, and a sweatshirt or fleece.

PLEASE plan to pick students up promptly at 4:45 pm. Students cannot be left unsupervised after practice, so we ask that you arrange transportation accordingly.


Track Meets: The schedule is posted on the Athletics calendar. Please check it regularly for changes.

  • Track meets will be held at the New Trier West track on the corner of Winnetka Rd and Happ Rd.
  • Meets will begin at about 4:00 PM, and we anticipate ending around 5:30 PM.
  • In the event a meet needs to be canceled, students and parents will be notified around 1:30 via Parent Square.

We are aware that many children are actively participating in more than one program, and/or have other commitments such as doctor appointments, religious obligations, etc., and need to leave early from practice and/or track meets. Our policy on taking your child home during a practice/meet is to sign your child out from our attendance sheet. If your child is getting a ride from another family, we need to have verbal or written permission from the parent of the child in need of the ride.

After each practice and track meet, we ask that each child be picked up promptly as the coaches cannot leave until all students have been picked up.


Go Eagles!!!
