You should be aware of when your event is approaching.  Ask a varsity member or coach when you should start warming up.  Make sure that you have jogged, done your flexibility drills, and accelerations before you check in at the start.  Keep your sweats on.  You should start each race feeling warm and have a perspiration going.

Cool down after your race.  

If you are assigned the “Meet Bag” or water jugs, make sure these get back on the bus.
