Congratulations! Youve been selected by the coaches to be a track captain! Being a captain is an honor and a great responsibility. As a team leader, youll need to lead by example and set the tone for the entire team. As you work with the coaches in the following duties, youll receive great satisfaction and pleasure in seeing the team follow your lead and shoot for the stars!! Plus, youll receive a nice captain patch for your hard work (. Make sure you always act with class and never, for any reason, take advantage of your position as a team captain. The privilege can and will be taken away if necessary. Here are your responsibilities as a track captain:

 
   

Be at practice at 3:25 PM. Help the coaches settle the team down and start team meetings at 3:30 PM.

   

Take roll for your camp on a daily basis on a clipboard that the coaches will provide (Your camp will sit with you in a row and check in with you).

   

If anyone from your camp is late, you will have them do 50 push-ups as part of your camp warm-up.

   

If an athlete is absent, you will call them that evening and find out the reason for their absence. You will notify the coaches of un-excused absences and encourage the athlete to not miss again.
