News and Announcements

Spring track tryouts begin Monday March 2, after school, down at the EHS track stadium. 3 simple things you need to do in order to tryout:
1. Sign up on the google document form: https://forms.gle/eQ3Rj19nswZVsmDg9
2. Turn in either your RECERTIFICATION or PHYSICAL form to the athletic office by Feb 21 (both under documents)
The RECERTIFICATION form is a form signed by your parent. This form is for any athlete who has already had a physical/participated in another high school sport. If you have had an injury that required a doctor’s attention during your previous sport, the doctor also needs to sign this form.
or
The PHYSICAL form is a form for those of you who have not already had a physical this school year.
3. 9th and 11th graders or anyone who has not had one already, need an impact test. If you have already had an impact test as a 9th or 11th grader this school year, then you are fine.

Parents and athletes, if you would like to join our track remind, the remind text group code is: @emmaustra2

Great job at Ursinus Invite! 3 more Emmaus indoor records broken (Girls 4×8, Boys 4×8, and Boys 55m hurdles broken by all 3 of boys entered) and 2 records tied (Girls 55m and Boys 55m). In addition, there were numerous best times/throws/jumps achieved. For those not particularly thrilled with their performance, we will continue to stress that “failures” are surely the stepping stones to future success!
