Spring season 2023 begins on February 27th. Typically, our season runs for 10 weeks with league meets starting on March16th, followed by 3 weeks of post season competition for those athletes who qualify (metros, districts, and state), wrapping up the last week of May. Make sure to get your physicals completed and uploaded to Final Forms ASAP!

Team Schedule: Our first meet is on March 16th! You can find the full printable PDF schedule here: 2023 Metro League Meet Schedule.
Practices are as follows:
- Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, & Friday: 3:55-6:00pm
- Wednesdays: 2:40-5:00pm
- Saturdays: 9:00-11:00am*
* Saturday, March 4th practice is for everyone. Future Saturday practices determined by specific event coaches.
The Metro League has 17 schools and this year, only 3 locations for meets (Nathan Hale, West Seattle, and Ingraham). To help these large meets run smoothly, the district is assigning each school to run specific events at each track meet.
We will need lots of parent volunteers at each meet to allow our coaches to coach athletes, and not spend their time moving hurdles and measuring jumping distances. Keep in mind, you will only need to volunteer for the duration of the specific event, not the entire track meet! Plus this will get you close up on the field for a great view of your athlete!
Please volunteer for as many shifts as you can and take note of the meet location at: SignUp Genius
Seattle Public Schools does not charge a fee for athletes to participate in sports. This means our teams need support to cover costs. To fill these gaps, we luckily have the Roosevelt Athletic Boosters (RAB), which is a parent group that supports all sports teams at RHS (The general Booster fund) and helps pay for our school trainer Casey. In addition, Track & Field has it’s own Booster account which funds our team.
Items previously purchased through our Track & Field RAB donations:
We are asking families to consider making a tax deductible donation to Track & Field through the Roosevelt Athletic Boosters (RAB is a 501(C)3 Organization, Tax ID: 34-2022-806).
The suggested donation is $50 per athlete, although all donations are greatly appreciated.
Our team goal is 100% participation by our Track & Field Families! To donate, please click the DONATE button on this page or click HERE and select “Track & Field” from the drop-down menu.
Shoes: Please wear athletic running shoes to all practices. Some athletes choose to purchase track spikes for races but these are not mandatory.
Warm up gear: Please dress for the weather. Warm up pants and jacket/sweatshirt may be necessary to keep muscles warm during the first few weeks of the season and during all track meets.
Team Hoodie: Traditionally, early each season, captains design a team hoodie and athletes are given the opportunity to purchase.
Uniforms/Shorts: Uniforms will be provided. Girls will need to provide their own black shorts for meets. Historically, girls have not wanted to wear team issued shorts and have requested to wear their own.
Sports Duffle Bag: If you are interested, you can purchase a Roosevelt Sports Duffle bag from the Green and Gold Exchange (store), link HERE. [NOTE: store is only open during the school year

His leadership with our Track & Field team has helped train many competitive athletes in Metro, Districts and our State Meets. Many of our athletes continue their careers at the collegiate level.
