St Pius X offers Track and Field to all athletes in 5th – 8th grade; we encourage all those interested to sign up.  Junior Varsity (5th and 6th) and Varsity (7th and 8th) teams participate in the Dallas Parochial League with other parochial schools.

 

Practices: Begin in early March for all JV participants; Varsity members to follow shortly thereafter since their meets do not begin until mid-April; practices are held at Bishop Lynch High School. Regular season practices are typically held two days a week for 2 hours each practice (TBA-at coach’s discretion).

 

Uniforms:  SPX provides track jerseys, field event equipment, batons, etc.   

 

**Player must provide or purchase: tennis shoes, track shoes, running shorts and sunscreen.

 

Track Meets: there are three (3) Meets for Junior Varsity members that begin in late March early April; there are four (4) Meets for Varsity that begin in mid-April and go through mid-May.  Track meets are typically held on Saturdays; some Sundays if inclement weather prevents events from taking place on the previous Saturday.   All meets are held at area high school tracks.

 

Meet Events: Sprints races, relays events, mile run, and hurdles;  Field events include long jump, shot put, discus, and high jump;

 

Sports Physicals:  All athletes must have a physical on file with the athletic director to participate; if your son or daughter have already turned in a physical form with a previous sport then no additional form is needed.
