Davis High School Track and Field 2014 Season

Parent/Athlete Informational Meeting

our philosophy
Our Philosophy
  • We believe every student-athlete willing to embrace the “team concept” should have the opportunity to participate on a competitive interscholastic team.
  • Our mission is to provide an environment where each student-athlete can strive to better him/herself as an athlete, teammate and human being.
our goals
Our Goals
  • Individual Goals:

The team supports individuals in their attempt at improving their own best marks, regardless of how these marks compare with those of other athletes.

Many student-athletes aspire to continue their track and field careers after high school, and we have numerous former Blue Devils competing at the NCAA level.


Team Goals: All four divisions seek to win the Delta Valley Conference championship. Our varsity teams seek to win the Sac Joaquin Section Championship.

our coaches
We have seven different event groups – sprints, hurdles, throws, horizontal jumps, high jump, pole vault and distance – and each event group has its own event coach.

Sprinters – Spencer Elliott

Hurdlers – Jonathan Defty

Throwers – Lauren Guerrieri

Jumpers – Leo Sacramento

High jump – Hideshi Okamoto

Pole Vaulters – Rick Harper

Distance runners – Bill Gregg

Assistant coach – Tim Groth

Our Coaches

  • A Team.

Expectations: What DHS Track and Field expects of student-athletes

Commitment: Student-athletes will work hard at practice every day.

Responsibility: Student-athletes are responsible for “managing” themselves at practice and at meets.

Character: A DHS track and field athlete is a member of this team during practice and meets, before practice and meets, after practice and meets, during the week, during the weekend, at school, away from school, and over vacations. Always remember this when you are making important life choices.

please do not join the team if
Please do not join the team if…
  • Your only reason for joining is to earn PE (I.L.S.) credit.
  • You intend to quit prior to the end of the season.
team guidelines and procedures practice
Team Guidelines and procedures: Practice
  • Come to practice every day. Contact Coach Elliott before practice if you will not be there. We will take attendance.
  • Student-athletes are responsible for getting the information missed during an absence.
  • Arrive before 3:50; Announcements begin at 3:50, warmup at 4:00. Practice ends at the discretion of the event coach.
  • Be prepared for practice: Attitude and equipment.
  • Athletes with consistent practice conflicts must fill out a “practice conflict request” sheet.
  • THREE unexcused absences will result in removal from the team.
  • Athletes must ASK permission to miss practice no less than 24 hours prior to that practice.
  • Athletes may not use another athlete as a messenger to tell me they will not be at practice.
  • Nick doesn’t have to come to practice if he doesn’t want to.

Examples of excusable absences:

  • Family commitments cleared in advance
  • Doctor or dentist appointments cleared in advance
  • Sick with the flu and missed school

Examples of non-excusable absences:

  • Sorry Coach, I had a lot of homework yesterday.
  • I have shin splints and I’m really sore, so I needed a day off.
  • I’m going to a concert.
  • I’m going to a birthday party.
guidelines and procedures meets
Guidelines and Procedures: Meets
  • DVC meets are mandatory meets for every athlete. Plan your schedule accordingly.
  • I expect everyone to stay at league meets until the end of the 4x400m relay (This is not necessarily true of invitational meets). Let your event coach know before the day of the meet if you must leave early.
dhs athletic clearance card
DHS Athletic Clearance Card
  • In order to practice on 2/11, I need your “DHS Athletics Clearance Card.”
  • You will receive this card when your sports physical forms done through the Athletic Office. Contact Dennis Foster with questions: dfoster@djusd.net.
  • There will be paperwork nights on 2/4 and 2/6, 6-8pm in the north gym.
medical clearance
Medical Clearance
  • If you have a physical on file from a DHS sport (this school year) you do not need to do another one.
  • I do need your emergency card. You can pick this up in the athletic office or just fill out a new one.
transportation entry fee contribution
Transportation/Entry Fee Contribution
  • These are due on the first day of official practice: Tuesday, February 11.
  • The fee offsets transportation and entrance fee costs.
roster form
Roster Form
  • This form gets you on the roster. This is what the school uses to clear your absences for meets and check your grades for eligibility.
  • I use the email address listed to send information about departures, dismissals, awesome Blue Devil performances, etc.
  • Please Print Clearly!

We are not pre-ordering this year. Instead, we will be selling uniforms at practice. Stay tuned for more information on this.
