Tigers Track and Field to Hold Tryouts
MEMPHIS, Tenn. - The Memphis Tiger Track and Field Team is holding open tryouts for any University of Memphis student that wishes to join the program.
The tryout will take place Wednesday, Sept. 21 at the track and field complex on the Park Avenue Campus. Those trying out will be allowed to warm-up on their own starting at 4:30 p.m. and the testing will begin promptly at 5 p.m.
In order to participate, students must provide a current transcript from the University of Memphis--a high school transcript is also preferred but not required. A physical, including a sickle-cell anemia screening, must be obtained from a doctor and proof presented before any potential athlete will be allowed to try out.
In addition, a recruitment form, which can be downloaded at the top of this article, must be printed and filled out. Those wishing to try out must bring all required documentation to the track and field offices by Sept. 20 or they will not be allowed to try out.
Questions regarding the tryout should be directed to assistant track and field coach Chrissie Feldmann who can be reached through email, firstname.lastname@example.org, or in her office at (815) 751-3969. The track offices are located in the Athletic Office Building on the main campus in Room 201.
