Track & Field
Welcome to the DeWitt Middle School athletic page for Track
Track and Field sign ups will start in early March and the first practice is tentatively scheduled for early April. A normal practice time is from 2:30-4:30 on most school days. Most league track meets take place on Wednesdays throughout the season. They start at 4:30 and usually end around 7:30. When it's available, you'll be able to view the complete schedule below. The schedule could change depending on weather or other reasons.
Once rosters have been set, please tell your son/daughter to check their Track Google Classroom page every day for announcements from coaches.
To participate, students must have a current physical card on file in our main office. There is also a sports fee of $160 that must be paid prior to the first meet. Students that have previously played on a DeWitt Middle School sports team, during this school year, have already met the requirement of a physical card and sports fee and will not have to submit anything else to be able to participate in track.
All required forms and the online payment link can be found on the main middle school athletic page. (MHSAA Physical Card)
