UATF ACCOMPLISHMENTS STANDARDS

The team will be divided into three categories: Varsity, Junior Varsity A (JVA), and  Junior Varsity B (JVB). The coaching staff has established minimum standards by event to qualify for both Varsity and JVA Teams (see below). These standards will determine athlete eligibility to participate in specific events in Varsity or Junior Varsity track meets. Athletes are not eligible to compete in events for which they have not met the published standards. *Please note, these standards will be on a sliding scale and modified as needed based on athletes’ performance throughout the season.

Team Fees, which are set by the UAXCTF Parent Board, fund annual program expenses such as booster fees, team transportation to events outside school range, team apparel selected by coaches, Senior Recognition, Awards Night, and team administration (such as website, records board, and legal filings). Team fees are also used to purchase and maintain equipment such as team tents, flags, tarps, water coolers and more. While not all of these items are replaced every year, we like keep some reserve on hand to always be prepared for any unexpected expenses.
