Congratulations!! You have a Mason Track Athlete. Welcome to the Mason Track Boosters!! Our Boosters are unusual in that we not only raise money for our athletes but we are an integral part in their sport because we run the track meets. Since we have serious, recreational and gym credit athletes, which is a huge amount of athletes, we need each family to volunteer for 2-3 meets throughout the year in order to be able to fully run them. Below I have listed first - a description of what each areas responsibilities are 2- a link below that information to the sign up genius.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact any of the booster members listed at the bottom.
Thanks for your participation and we look forward to seeing you at the track!!
***Concessions--in concession stand,1) window person will take orders, charge customers appropriate amount/make change 2) or fetch the food/beverage wanted by the window people who are taking customers orders. Grill Master-cooks burgers and hotdogs on grill.
Timers--You are in charge of one lane and time the person in that lane. You are given a stopwatch to hit when the gun goes off and to stop when your lane/runner crosses the finish line. You then tell your runner their time and they relay it to their coaches.
Lead--makes sure there are sufficient timers, everyone is ready, signal the official that he can start the race, make sure the time runner has times.
Relays--stand at marked interval for relay races to insure the baton is passed within the lane and start/stop area.
Long jump--Either record jump lengths, measure, or rake the pit so it is flat.
Shot/discus--Measure the length of the throw, insure it is recorded, make sure students stay in the designated safe zone.
Pole vault--records heights and moves/replaces the rod, keeps athletes in vaulting order.

Are you allowed to leave to watch your athlete run?? OF COURSE, please let the other people in your area know so that accommodations are made during your absence. Some of the volunteer areas are actually a great spectator spot for watching the competition.
