Parker Junior High Track & Field

Welcome to the home page for the Track & Field Team!!!

The Parker Track Team has a well-established a tradition of excellence and competitive spirit. Over the past decade, the team has won multiple conference and sectional championships, and sent over 200 athletes to the State Meet in East Peoria

Any student is welcome to come out for the team-previous running experience is not required.  Besides basic running and sprinting, students will have a chance to try: relays, long jump, high jump, shot put, and discuss.  Every day, the students will run through drills designed to increase their speed, strength, and endurance

The track season consists of daily practices and a set of tri- or quad- meets against other schools in our conference.  There will also be at least one invitational meet.  At the end of the season, the squad will be cut down to the top two students in each event (top five for relays) to compete in the conference and sectional meet.  If they place first in their event or make a state qualifying time at the sectional meet, they will continue on to the Illinois State meet in East Peoria.

In order to join the track team, each athlete needs a signed:

  • Permission Slip
  • Grade Verification Sheet
  • Sports Physical Sheet (and a valid SPORTS physical on file with the nurse)
  • Concussion Form

Track Permissions slips are available from Mr. Youngquist in room 14, Miss Mohan in room 73, Miss Meiner in room 24, and the main office.  Physical forms are available in the front office and the nurse's office

There should also be a link to print it out at home from the "Forms" section
