2017 Team Schedule

Click HERE for the team meet schedule and practice schedule once we officially start up practices on July 31, 2017! Make sure to have a doctor's physical completed and turned in to our new Magnus Health Forms portal before you can practice.


Summer Training

We are off to a GREAT start with some of the strongest participation in our team's history. That is the first step to Finding a Way to be a champion!

Remember that we have our regular training session Mondays thru Fridays at 7:30 a.m. meeting at the cell phone tower. We also have a group meeting earlier at 7 a.m. Bring your own water.

Goals for summer training:

  • Increase mileage progressively and safely over the 9 week base building phase
  • On 2 runs a week run a faster pace and watch those base runs get faster and faster as you get more fit
  • Improve core area strength & flexibility
  • Meet new friends
  • Be part of our running community

Keep it up! Be fearless to find greatness...It comes about one step at a time!

Hard-Working, Fun-Loving, Competitive Hawklets!

Welcome to the 2017 Season

Athletes will need a completed physical before participating in track and field which can be found under the athletic tab on rockhursths.edu. Athletes will need a signed syllabus (by themselves and a parent/guardian) before they can compete in a meet. Athletes will further need a $75 deposit for their uniforms (as long as they are returned in good condition to Coach Day by the 6/1 that check will be shedded).

Please click on the following Team Syllabus in order to print off, sign, and turn into the coaching staff before our spring break. There is a MSHSAA form that needs to be completed which is on the rockhursths.edu website under the athletics tab. Also, each student athlete needs a physical turned in the Dean's Office by the start of the season in order to practice with the team. If you have already participated in Rockhurst Athletics during this school year, then you do not need to obtain a new physical.

Thank you,
