Track Etiquette

It is important to understand and observe the following basic Track & Field etiquette:

  • The entire track and field areas are for exclusive use of the athletes only during practices and meets. Parents are not allowed to “jog”, walk or stroll children. Parents and small children who are not assisting the coach can be dangerous to the athletes.
  • Always be aware of what is going on around you. Look both ways before crossing the track or runways to ensure that you will not be interfering with any athlete. Whenever possible, do not cross lanes during a race.
  • Do not cross through the approach area or runways of field events.
  • Do not cross through the shot put area at any time.
  • If the meet does not allow spectators in the infield, do not go on the track or field unless you are required to be there.
  • Be alert for drills, athletes practicing and warm-ups on the field.
  • If someone is on the track and in your way, yell “Track”. When you hear “Track” yelled, clear the track safely or freeze and let the runner pass.
  • Do not stand on the track or curb of track at anytime. Do not run on the curb while practicing.
  • Do not pace (run along side) any runner during a race. This will result in the disqualification of the person being paced.
  • Do not call times in non-sprint races to participants. This is unfair to the other club’s athletes and against Conference rules. It could result in the disqualification of our runner(s).
  • Show respect to all coaches by following direction when addressed.
  • Clean up after yourself. If you brought it, you are responsible for its disposal.
  • Do not berate competitors or interfere with officials. If you can’t say anything complimentary, don’t say anything at all. We will not tolerate any arguments or heated discussions in the immediate presence of our athletes. If you have a dispute, do it in the proper manner and with the proper authorities.
