Expectations

Practice 

  • Open practices are held at The Geneva School • Casselberry.
    • Open is defined as any runner who does not have a practice held at their school.
  • We start promptly on time.  We do not prioritize procrastination regarding arriving late arrivals.
  • 6:30pm-7:30 pm Practice.  Do Not enter the track until you hear a whistle blowing constantly.  Stay outside the gated area.
  • Parents must stay for the duration of the practice. You are not allowed to leave for any reason. Impending weather may arise and we must get the runners into their parents’ car.
  • Misbehaving – If for any reason your runner misbehaves at practice or the meets they will be asked to sit out. We do not in any way tolerate bullying or unsportsmanlike conduct. The length of time will be at the discretion of the coach. If they continue to act up they will not be allowed to practice with the group. Misbehaving implies the following: bullying, disrespect, touching other children, inappropriate words, name-calling, unsportsmanlike conduct.

Testimonials

I appreciate the fact that Dreadhead Sports allow other schools that are not close to participate. Track is my sons element and this team has taught him how to be humble and a good competitor. I love how they have javelin, long jump, running jump, hurdles and various races. Everything is very fair so everyone has a chance to win. The owner is a great leader and has instilled good values in the program. It is literally everything we were looking for. I just wish there were more seasons to join.  

Selena, Outside School Area

Absolutely great experience. Wasn’t too sure what we were getting into but it better then imagined! Perfect for numerous reasons. Track in its self. Preparing for another sport or even just pure exercise and competition! Would recommend to anyone!
